Post Your Dates 2017

Here in the Apus Peru reservations office, we get tons of enquiries from trekkers looking to join a specific group trek on dates that we aren´t currently offering.  It is difficult for us to match these people up, especially in the time before the desired departure date.  SO, I am hoping that we can use our blog as a forum for uniting potential trekkers!  I have posted a link to our most current confirmed departures below, this will be updated regularly.  If anyone is interested forming additional groups, please post on THIS page with the dates and treks you are hoping to create! Happy Trekking 🙂

12-day trek Choquequirao Salkantay, Inca Trail Machu & Picchu

Hi all – I’m looking into doing a 12-day trek Choquequirao Salkantay, Inca Trail Machu & Picchu in the summer of 2017. Two travelers from the US in our late 30s can do any dates from late June through Aug 2017. We are active and would love the company of others and meeting new people. Saving on per person costs would be a perk as well. Please reach out to me if you are also considering a 12 day trek in the summer of 2017 and we can work together to pick a date that works best! Post here or contact me at nal20xc (at) yahoo (dot com)

  1. hello everyone! we are kicking off a new page of ‘Trekkers Wanted’ for 2017 so please include your preferred dates, trek route, and any other applicable information here! Looking forward to getting some great groups together!

  2. Sat 5/27-Sun 6/4: 4 DAYS/3 NIGHTS – LARES TREK TO MACHU PICCHU
    Hi everyone! I’m a friendly EurAsian female from Paris but leaving in San Francisco (speaking English, French native, and Spanish), pretty fit, hiking every weekend, in general comfortable w/ 10-13+ miles w/ elevation 4,000 + feet elevation w/ avg 3 miles / hr. I’m quite flexible and happy to adapt to other hikers’ pace w/ hiking much slower to enjoy nature on vacation.

    I’m looking to do this Lares to Machu Picchu (scenic trail-lakes, villages, wild life/animals, etc, not over crowded compared to Inca Trail, no permit required, and off the beaten path trek: http://www.apus-peru.com/treks/lares_machu_picchu.htm leaving during DRY season, Sat 5/27 fly from SF and return on Sun 6/4 (8 days), catching potentially festival period, in end of May-beginning of June.

    [In summary, roughly 8 days w/ flight time = 2 days recommended to acclimate to altitude in Cusco, 4 days/3 nights trek, abt 1 day rest/exploration perhaps before return flight].

    Would love to meet new people and looking for the company of another hiker (female preferably to share tent), or more hikers (male or female) to lower costs. 🙂 Please email me at mftieu@gmail.com to start discussion/explore options. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Marie (from San Francisco). 😉

  3. Hello, I’m female, fit, regular hiker. I’m looking to join a group and share tent w/ another female, to do Classic Inca Trail (4 days/3 nights) in May or June. Need a permit. Please contact me asap if you have an open spot or may know of someone or another group who may have one. Thanks!

  4. Hello, we are a young couple from Canada looking for people to do the Choquequirao trek (4 days) with Machu Picchu extension August 25 or 26. We are not much flexible on the dates since we are only in Cusco for 1 week.
    Please contact me if you are looking for the same date, thanks a lot.

  5. Ausangate Trek (5 days/ 4 nights) start Thursday, 24th August 2017

    Hi, we are a young couple from US. Very fit and friendly looking for some fellow travelers so we could create a group.

    • Hi Jamie
      Have you filled your quota for this trip as I am looking to join a group on this trek.
      I am an older but fit male Aussie living in Brasil, I have a reasonable amount of day hike experience and also have completed the W trail in TDP, so not exactly a novice. My wife may be able to join but not certain as yet as she has just had a spell in hospital. My FB page will give you an insight to my being your sort of trekking companion
      I look forward to your reply.

  10. Hi, I’m looking for 6 to 8 other hikers to form a group to depart May 16, 2017 for: Choquequirao In Depth (5days/4 nights). I’m 60y from Montreal Canada, and speak French and English.

  11. Hi – I’m looking to do the 5D in depth or perhaps 4D Choquequirao trek in early July 2017. I’ve already booked an Inca Trail to MP trip returning to Cusco 29 Jun – am figuring on a couple of days to recover / wash my gear and then hope to find a group for Choquequirao. I’m a 52yr M, living in London; speak Eng, Ger, Fre and Spanish (but don’t know the technical hiking terms yet…). Travelled in ca 90 countries, camped in ca a dozen. More traveller than trekker but last year spent 7 days hiking / camping in Papuan rain forest. Will be 10th visit to Peru – a decade ago I worked as a volunteer on an Inca archaeology project at 3700m for 2 weeks.

  12. Hello,
