Huaraz Things to See and Do

follow us

Huaraz is an adventurers’ paradise and there is no shortage of outdoor activities to try out. Hiking is one of the main things to do here, with numerous options available. As well as being a base for excursions to the three Cordilleras, you can also explore Parque Nacional Huascarán, Lagunas Llanganuco and the ancient Chavín capital of Chavín de Huántar. If you’re keen to touch ice but aren’t quite up to the physical demands of a full-on climb, then check out the Pastoruri glacier, which is now open to tours having been closed since 2008.

To rest your weary bones after some energetic hiking or climbing, there are hot springs five kilometers (3 mi) from Huaraz in Monterrey. The nearby ruins of Willkawaín also make an excellent day trip. From Huaraz you can organize a number of adventure sport activities, including mountain biking, rafting and kayaking, birdwatching, horseback riding and paragliding—you name it and Huaraz probably has it.
