For some people, doing nothing but lying on a beach is no vacation.  If you are like so many of the other thousands of people in the world that love adventure, you will want to consider taking one of the many Peru adventure tours on your next vacation. You will be experiencing historic culture and natural beauty like you have never seen before.


There are quite a few guided tours to choose from.  Many of them are in the more popular areas that tourist like to visit.  Others are in places that are more off the beaten path, like in Cusco.  Cusco trips take you to places that are away from the areas flooded with tourists to show you the real intimacy of the country.


These trips aren’t for the weak.  You need real stamina and physical strength to book a Cusco trip.  Not only will you be biking, trekking, and rafting, but you will also need to carry all of your supplies with you.  For some of the mountain trekking adventures, you can rent a mule to help carry your supplies.


One of the biggest advantages of the Cusco trips is that they are really remotely located.  They are away from noise and electronics.  You can really get some distance from your every day life by taking one of these trips.  It is a true vacation when you completely escape from everything and just be with nature.


If you are looking for adventure but something not quite as physically taxing as the more remote tours, there are plenty of other Machu Picchu hiking tours to choose from as well.  Many of these take you through the rain forests or through the mountains.  They will often take you through little inhabited villages as well.


Most of the Machu Picchu hiking tours end at the citadel.  You will be given a tour of the citadel before left to roam and explore yourself.  The views of the Andes Mountains are breathtaking, as are the local rivers and villages.  There is true beauty every where you look.  It can really rejuvenate your spirit to be so close to ancient times.


Along with the Machu Picchu and Cusco tours, there are many other Peru adventure tours to consider as well.  For example, you can hike some of the amazing Incan trails.  They take you through incredible places like Dead Woman’s Pass and the Sacred Trail.  You will get to see plenty of wild animals and native plants and flowers.


One thing you will need to be cautious of on any Peru adventure tour is altitude sickness.  Some people ascend to higher altitudes too quickly and get flu like symptoms like headache, dizziness, and nausea.  Ascend slowly and drink plenty of water to avoid this.  You wouldn’t want to spoil your vacation by being ill.
