Next time you plan a visit to Peru, set aside a full day for the 7 Lakes Tour. This trip, known locally as the 7 Lagunas, is an incredible experience. You will venture into the Vilcanota mountain range. It’s home to the Ausangate mountain, a sight to behold. 

This Ausangate full day tour will take you on a trek to seven high-altitude lakes. Each one unique, each one beautiful. Azul Cocha is one such lake, with its bright blue waters. The others will leave you in awe too.

Your tour guide will lead you along paths less travelled. You will see portions of the Inca trail on your day hike. The tour will reveal a different side of Peru. Away from the typical tourist sights of Machu Picchu, Rainbow Mountain or the Sacred Valley.

Altitude sickness could pose a challenge, but we will provide guidance. You will have the necessary information to prevent it. On the Ausangate 7 lakes tour, you will immerse yourself in Peru’s natural beauty. Book your spot on this full day tour today.

Great experience! The trail was really satisfying to walk. Our guide Rolando really took care of us and gave a lot of information about the Inca's and the nature. And of course the porters were amazing. The effort they put into the journey every day is admirable. Every day they set up all the tents and prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner for us. It was delicious. And don't forget that they carried all the equiment over the same trail we had to walk with only our daypack. Much respect for them! Of course Machu Picchu is incredable but also the other Inca-ruines alongside the trail were wonderfull. And there is nothing more rewarding than walking for 4 days arriving at the Sun Gate looking to Machu Picchu. It is also nice to know that by doing the trail you support the local community and may support the porters to eventually go to college to learn a profession the really love. Due to the guide, the porters and my fellow traveller it was an amazing experience!

A great experience with an excellent company that takes care of every detail. High level guide We had a great trip to Machu Picchu. A 3-day trip that included: a train ride, the Inca Trail and a day and a half tour of the Machu Picchu site. The trip was excellent in terms of organization, guidance and accompaniment. warmly recommended

Camino Inca 2024 Una gran experiencia fue hacer Camino Inca. Frank, el guía, tiene mucho conocimiento siempre fue amable, atento y me hizo sentir segura en los 4 días que dura este trekking.

La comida era increíble, el cocinero A1 todo estaba delicioso. Los campamentos impecables. Recomiendo mucho a la agencia. Gracias por todo.

Best tour ever! I had the best time doing this Inca trail. Our tour guide was Dario and he is just the best. He is so informative, patient and just an overall amazing guide. It was a once in a lifetime experience for me and Dario just made it that much more special. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Thank you Dario for everything .
