Senior Journey


“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine. Whether you are retired or still working, hoping to travel with family, a partner, or solo—Peruvian Andean Treasures has many options of senior trip ideas for every variety of senior travellers. The daily activities are flexible, which can be adapted according to your needs/requirements. Entail visits to historical and cultural sites as well as natural environments with no further physical activity; it is the main item about our programs. ACTIVITY LEVEL: We rate our programs according to the tours on an activity level: (1 easy to 4 moderately challenging). Since not everyone has the same desire or capabilities for physical challenges, we have created the activity level scale below. Please review the details of each level to determine which levels suite your tastes for any given trip. This is a guideline only of what to expect on our tours.
  • EASY:
You must be able to hike up to 1 or 2 hours, often walking through archeological sites, towns/cities and/or rainforests with varying levels of rugged terrain. You must be able to walk at least 1 mile (1.6 km) with various slope grades that can be slippery, depending on conditions.
  • MODERATELY EASY:
You must be able to hike up to 3 hours, often walking through archeological sites, towns/cities and/ or rainforests with varying levels of rugged terrain. You must be able to walk at least 2 miles (approx. 3 km) with various slope grades that can be slippery, depending on conditions.
