Have you ever dreamed of taking a scenic trek through the Cordillera Blanca in Peru? Then you’ll love this 4-day adventure along the Santa Cruz Trek.

Throughout the amazing Santa Cruz Trek, you’ll be constantly staring up at the gorgeous peaks of the Cordillera Blanca. You’ll also get to gaze upon a number of beautiful natural highlights, from stunning lagoons and forests to lovely rivers and lakes. You’ll also get access to magnificent viewpoints, including the Punta Union Pass, which rests at an altitude of 4,750 meters.

Our journey will begin in Huaraz. From there, we will venture to different locations, including Vaqueria, Paria, Taullipampa, Cashapampa, Llamacorral and Arhuaycocha. Each one of these places will provide you with its own unique experience and set of wonders.

Another great aspect of this 4-day trek is that it will act as a perfect means to acclimatization for those wishing to do some climbing on the tremendous peaks in the Cordillera Blanca. Furthermore, this is not a very technically difficult trip. As a result, people of all levels can enjoy it. However, you should be in good physical condition.

Hiking along the Santa Cruz Trek in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru is an adventure you will never forget. To enjoy it for yourself, please send a request. We look forward to guiding you.

We also offer a much longer hike on this 10-day Cedros Alpamayo Trek.
