The Andes, regardless if you’re an experienced adventurer or not, always have something completely new and unique to offer; myriad lakes, volcanoes, mountain tops, but also a profound cultural heritage as well. This tour will offer you a unique opportunity to experience the Andes in their full glory, along with the major cities within Bolivia and Peru. While the tour requires good hiking endurance, the pleasures and beautiful memories it will leave you with by the end will always remain priceless.
