TREK HOPPERSWe know the way!

Trek hopping’ is a unique and different way to explore and experience the Andes regions by foot. We offer to get you from A to B in day stages, whilst visiting and staying in local communities along the way.  Our group sizes are ideally from 4 - 14 members as we want to keep an intimate number of people trekking these routes, where accommodation within the communities may be limited. We do not want to arrive 'en-mass' everywhere we go. Thus giving as a better control group dynamics and pace. We contribute back to the places we go and have the opportunity to pick up trash too, trying to be as culturally and environmentally conscious as we can! 

Designed for the more independent hiker, 'Trek hopping' means that you can join up or leave again at various stages of the journey and pay only the amount per stage/leg of the trip that you wish to do, which is $69 USD for a 24 hour period or $125 USD for a 48 hour period.

In return, you will be in small groups of like-minded people of all ages from all over the world, which makes this is a very sociable way to do the trip - we want you to make friends along the way!

You can bail out if feeling tired or harsh weather begins to prevail, do an easier section or harder ones. We will help coordinate the local transport to get you to the next stop and in the case someone gets sick, clinics or hospitals are never more than a few hours away. The towns of Chinchero, Pisac, Calca, Urubamba and Cusco all have at least basic medical facilities.

If doing the entire journey, you can stop to wash clothes and take fresh showers, which means you can travel light - just 1 or 2 changes of clothes to bring with you and as we are in family home-stays, there is no need for carrying tents and sleeping bags.

RESPONSIBLE AND SUSTAINABLE

·       We are supporting the communities and local villages with income from our trip, therefore you can feel much better about your
‘right of passage’

·       We can go as green as possible. Plastic is a huge and endemic problem here in the Andes of Peru. Locals from these outpost communities are less educated on recycling materials than most. Deposits and truck collections are hugely nowhere to be seen. We encourage you to bring Nalgene bottles or pouches.  We will bring a steripen and provided boiled water where available. We will provided fabric bags for purchasing snacks at the markets.

·       If we collect plastic on a daily basis, we can bring back to the larger towns where it can be disposed of in better ways and leaving less
hazardous environmental impact in the rural areas and mountainsides. 

·       In turn those committed to trash/rubbish collecting will receive $5 USD off on each trek day as an incentive to be more enviro-friendly too!

·       We do not expect you to carry mountains off the mountains or an equivalent to what could stack up a truck or mule! We mean, a reasonable amount that you are comfortable to carry, which could be of up to 10 or 15 small plastic bottles for example.

·       We shall also let you know if any other community work is going on at the time of your trip (please enquire) as we have contacts with the local Municipality and at times throughout the year,  there are opportunities to help with trail maintenance, water sanitation projects and tree-planting to do along the way.

Testimonials


In our first year of running these trips we have recieved some fantastic reviews from our trekkers.  Here are just a few examples of what people had to say taken from both our Facebook page and Trip advisor reviews - 

Awesome trip! I saw more of the Sacred Valley in those six days than I have done in 6 years. What a superb authentic hiking experience with an amazing group of trekkers. Highly recommended!
— J. Clancy, US, April, 2017 from Trip Advisor
Spent ages looking around the local agents to do the trek i wanted and these guys were the only ones who were able to offer exactly what i wanted. Highly recommend, not only in terms of delivering what is asked & value for money, but also discovering the lesser known (no less amazing) places that peru has to offer
— Mike, UK, from June 2017, taken from a Facebook review
In March this year I had the pleasure of joining Trek Hoppers in some treks around the Sacred Valley from Cusco.....The included homestays made the journeys so much richer to experience the food, culture and warmth of the locals. Price were very fair. Highly recommend If looking for some trekking, adventure and local experience that you cannot find with an average tour. I had a great time with this crew!
— Teri A, Australia, June 2018 from Trip Advisor
What a great idea! Hike all day or for a week on incredible mountain routes linked through the Sacred Valley. At night sleep in a bed and get a hot shower. Pick and choose the routes you want to do, as well as fun side activities. Forget the popular treks filled with tourists. Go where few ever travel, see the real Andes and avoid the crowds. Highly recommended!
— D Ancona, Holtsville, US sourced from a facebook review
Ive been on two treks with Matt and his tour company and I wish I could have gone on more. He knows the Ins and outs of the Sacred Valley and takes you off the tourist track to visit very unique sites. His knowledge and love of the region is obvious and he is tremendously helpful in dispensing travel advice. This company treats you like family rather than customers.
