South America walking & trekking tours

Some adventures are simply better in hiking boots

There’s a special bond that develops between a trekker and their boots. It starts the moment you take them out of the box and continues long after you lace them up for that final day on the track. Whether you’re following the well-worn paths to Machu Picchu or discovering new twists and turns along Colombia’s Cocora Valley, each step imprints another memory on your sole. By the time you’ve finished the trek your boots will have more stories to tell than a porter on the Inca Trail. Let your feet do the exploring as you take in indigenous cultures and soaring scenery of South America.

I was very impressed by Intrepid’s goals and how our guide, Bobby, gave us more than a superficial view of Peru. Excellent.

Inca Trail Express

Moira · Traveled June 2024
Incredible trip to Machu Picchu via the Inca Trail. The hike was challenging, but definitely worth it for the spectacular views and the experience. Our guide Raul G. was exceptionally knowledgeable and organized and took great care of our group. The tents and mattresses were surprisingly comfortable, and the food was delicious, varied, and beautifully presented - hard to believe the chefs were able to prepare such excellent meals on the trail. Really happy we booked with Intrepid. Highly recommended!
