Central Peruvian Andes Things to See and Do

follow us

Spend the day ice climbing. Or if speed is more appealing, excite your heart with a challenging day of mountain biking. Take a break with an introspective tour of area ruins. Finally, end the day recounting your adventures with a relaxing drink in front of a warming fire.

This stunning region offers thrills for adrenaline junkies and outdoor enthusiasts. Towering glaciers and deep valleys complement each other perfectly. The glacier-topped Cordillera Blanca is the main climbing and hiking center of Peru. Mountain biking, horseback riding, river rafting and canoeing are also popular activities in this area.
