Post Your Dates 2018

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 🙂

  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!

      Hi all had to do a quick change of plans and have taken the chance and booked flights to Lima arving Thursday 20 July and hoping to do the Salkantay and Choquequirao treks. Need to leave Lima Sunday 6 August. Single fit 58 year old female just finised the Camino del Nord (400 kilometers) and all of the Primativo)

    2. Linda Crane

      I’m an American woman (North Carolina), seeking trekkers interested in doing the 6-Day Salkantay-Inca trail-Machu Picchu in December 2017.
      The purpose of my trek is doing research and location scouting for a screenplay I’m writing. The screenplay is a supernatural action adventure. Being spiritually focused, I will be approaching this trip with a sacred mindset and ceremonial connection to Apu, Snake, Puma and Condor energies, energies who play notable roles in my screenplay. Actual experience blended with imagination is a recipe for great storytelling. Whatever your intention is for taking this trek, approaching it with honor and reverence will lead to answers of questions you never thought to ask; hence, lies the secret to all great adventures.
      Blessings to all.

      1. Hi Linda,
        Thanks for your message,
        Unfortunately, we do not recommend to do the Salkantay Trek in December due to the raining season, we do operarte the Inca Trail and maybe we can help you with the trek, here is my email adress if you want to get more information about the Inca Trail: [email protected]
        I look forward to hearing from you
        Warm regards,
        Enrique Peña

    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: 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 [email protected] to start discussion/explore options. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Marie (from San Francisco). 😉

  3. Marie

    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. Joanie

    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.

    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.

    1. 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.

    Posted a Trekkers request earlier today for the 6-Day Salkantay-Inca Trail-Machu Picchu trek for a Dec 2017 date. An ap specialist responded telling me apus-peru doesn’t run this trek in Dec due to rain.
    I’m set on taking the 6-Day Salkantay-etc trek when tourist traffic is low. Do you offer this trek in Nov 2017 or Jan 2018?
