Inca Trail Treks & Ancascocha Trekking Specialist

Welcome to Action Peru Treks! Your Adventure is Waiting for you here!

Why Action Peru Treks and not just Peru treks? The word action requires physical movement, energy and accomplishes a purpose. Action Peru Treks provides superior, quality and authentic treks and tours to Machu Picchu and Choquequirao. We want you to connect with the treks and the beautiful scenery, which is why our team consists of only locals who have grown up on the land.

One of our primary goals is to support the local community. We make sure to provide fair wages for all of our team and especially our porters and horsemen.

Action Peru Treks was started in 2015 by Roxner Cardenas, who was born in a small community outside of Machu Picchu and has trekked this area all of his life. He has guided hundreds of groups on the Inca Trail, Ancascocha, Salkantay, Lares and the Choquequirao treks, both as a porter and a tour guide. He first visited Machu Picchu when he was 12 years old and was stunned by the history and architecture and decided to study to be a guide so he could share his culture and this beautiful landscape with others.

Ancascocha & Salkantay Trek 8D/7N

New Ancascocha Trail + Salkantay Trek

Glaciers, Inca Sites, High Altitude lakes, Original Inca Trail paths, Solitude, Coffee Plantation Tours…this trek has all of these things and more.

We spend a lot of time discussing the merits of the Ancascocha and Salkantay treks and which is better for specific individuals. They are both incredible and it was unfortunate that a group couldn’t do both. That has changed now! This brand new trek combines our signature Ancascocha Trek with the most popular alternative trek to the Inca Trail.

Of course on the final day of the trek you visit the magnificent city of Machu Picchu to cap it all off.

We hope you will join us for this unique trek.
