  • Jimmy's review about another G Adventures tour
    4.5 - Excellent

    A really good mix of hiking, culture, and exploration. I really enjoyed this tour, as it covers so many places that aren't otherwise accessible on your own. Arguable, Inca Trail was the highlight, but there was so much more. Ballesta Islands, Lake... Read more

  • Dennis Trifonov's review about another G Adventures tour
    4.5 - Excellent

    It's defensively an amazing experience, but the tour operator should've been clear about level of physical fitness for this hike. It's 1,000% for ADVANCED hikers. If you are not fit, think twice before signing up for this, otherwise this entire trip could... Read more

Why Travel With G Adventures?

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • Is there a weight minimum for the porters on the lares trek?

    Please read the information below in regards to their porters:

    "In our continued effort to support the rights of the porters on the Inca Trail, we would like ensure that they never exceed the weight limit for their packs as set out by the Peruvian authorities. Porters are allowed to carry no more than 6kg of personal belongings per hiker (for all other Peru treks the limit is 8kg). That means that including your sleeping bag, toiletries, clothing, etc, you are allowed a total weight of 6kg for the hike which will be carried in a duffle bag provided by our local office. Any additional weight must then be carried by you in your day pack. To help achieve this goal we recommend that you carry travel sized toiletries, that you bring sport sandals that can be worn with socks (which are lighter than running/walking shoes) and that you limit electronics to those that you are willing to carry.
