Apus Peru Adventure Travel Specialists was born out of a love for Peru and a passion for adventure and the outdoors. Long before we decided to form the business, we spent every spare moment heading out into the mountains, exploring new routes and deepening our knowledge of Andean culture.

We founded Apus Peru in 2005. Our purpose was two-fold: to capture the spirit of discovery we felt every time we headed out into the mountains in our tours, and to extend the benefits of tourism beyond the narrow Cusco-Sacred Valley-Machu Picchu corridor.

Although we love the classic routes, like the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu, we just knew that Peru has so much more to offer – and we wanted to share this with like-minded travellers around the world.

Apus Peru Reviews

What people are saying about Apus Peru

We really appreciated that this trek started a little later in the day, and we had the pleasure of the Vinikunka peak and walk back, nearly entirely to ourselves. What a privilege! This also speaks to an appreciation of the local challenges of overtourism, and their conscientious approach. William, our guide, was also extraordinarily patient with us, given that one of our group struggled with the altitude more than the rest. He was attentive and encouraging, while managing us in a quiet and confident manner. His knowledge and interest was apparent and we enjoyed his company very much. The Apus Peru team's communication was also excellent, and we appreciated the tailored offering they put together for us. We would highly recommend the company and tour to others!

The trek around the Ausangate massive proved to be even better than expected. Apus has a very professional organisation which shows quality in all aspects. Sustainability and fair payment to its employees. We fully enjoyed the trek and was treated as king and queen by the guide Herbert, the chef Mauro and the two horsemen. Fantastic meals and even cake at the last breakfast !

Herbert could tell a lot of what we saw under ways and had allways an answer. Super flexible and constantly high spirits.

We had an amazing 5-day, 4-night Inca trail trek with Apus Peru and their guide Mario (and their porters). I’d give 10 stars if possible. They are great with kids (our son is 9), and truly were caring, knowledgeable, and provided the best experience possible. A++ in every way.
