Join a Peru Group Adventure.

"I´ve backpacked and travelled a lot, usually as a couple or I´ve done some journeys alone. Trekkers Wanted is the kind of resource I always looked for, a place to join up with others. Hopefully it works for you!" - Ariana Svenson, Apus Peru Co-Founder.

Join a Peru group travel adventure!

Listed on this page are groups of people who have made a deposit and are departing on the date specified. These people are looking for others to join them - they are guaranteed departures, except where noted. The maximum group size is 12, in our view the optimum size group for a good quality experience. this is the perfect chance for people travelling alone to join up with others.

If you have seen the tour that you want to do, but want others to join, then the best way to this is to email us, make a deposit and guarantee the trip departure. the tour will then be listed on the website and others have the opportunity to join you. (however: it is never guaranteed that others will join)

We recommend getting your tour listed at least 3-4 months prior to departure to give your tour a good chance of getting others to join!
