Hidden in the world's longest continental mountain range, the Andes, is one of Peru's best kept secrets. The rainbow coloured Vinicunca Mountains. Trekking to this spectacle, you will be treading through one of the wildest and rarely visited regions of Peru, and the crown jewel in the Andes. Explore low alpine valleys, traditional Peruvian villages still rich in tradition and remote Andean culture. Snow capped peaks will tower over you, herds of llamas, glaciers and turquoise lakes will encapsulate you.

Condors will soar above you, pumas and bobcats will dart past. Bathe in hot springs along the way. You will circumnavigate the massive Ausangate Peak before reaching the breathtaking geological features of the 'Rainbow Mountains'. The landscape looks like it has been painted with a brush. Red, orange, ochre, turquoise and blue create an unforgettable sight.

If you are looking for a tour that you are sitting on a bus looking out the window while a tour guide points out the local history then this tour is not for you. You will need to pack your hiking shoes and sense of adventure as you are in for ten days of extreme trekking, remote locations and maybe even some wild weather. Great travel stories and memories aren't created by sitting around or waiting for the adventure to come to you; the best travel stories always involve being immersed in the culture, the food, the people and the environment. Getting out there and really being part of your experience is what makes for great travel.
