Peru Hop works with what we consider the best and safest tour operators. These tour operators do not claim to have the cheapest price, but they do have the best service, and that is why we work with them.

The following tours are the recommended activities to do in each of our destinations in which we can help you book during your trip, although we highly suggest to book your tours a couple of days in advance through FindLocalTrips.
Special deal for Peru Hop passengers: tours booked with these selected operators via FindLocalTrips.com allow date changes right up until the day before your tour begins at no extra cost.

Take a large, modern speedboat out into the middle of the Pacific Ocean to witness penguins, sealions and more than +400 species all living in their natural habitat. This reserve is protected, meaning you cannot swim with the animals, but you will get very close to them without harming their enviroment. A unique experience for all those wanting to discover the beautiful fauna in Peru’s “mini Galapagos”.
Price: 50 Soles (around $15 USD)
Times: 08:00am to 10:00am or 10:00am to 12:00pm
DUNEBUGGY & SANDBOARDING
Dune buggy up and sandboard down the largest dunes in South America. Drivers are “crazy” but safe and licensed, meaning you will have a rollercoaster-like journey through the desert oasis. Sandboarding can be done standing up or lying down on your stomach face first (recommended). Try it out and realize why it’s becoming one of the main attractions in Peru for all types of people!
Price: 50 Soles (around $15 USD)
Times: 16:00pm to 18:00pm (enjoy the sunset coming down on the oasis at the end of the tour)
NAZCA LINES FLIGHT
Take a small plane flight over the world famous Nazca Lines. These lines, some over 1,500 years old, have blown away historians and archeologists for hundreds of years, and even today there is no uniform agreement as to how they were ever created…some even believe it was aliens!! The huge drawings are spread over almost 80km of desert, so a plane ride is definitely the best way to see these incredible sculptures.
Price: $80 USD (plus 30 Soles airport tax paid upon arrival)
Times: Morning time highly recommended due to winds – email us to assist with scheduling if needed
COLCA CANYON TOUR
The Colca Canyon is the second deepest canyon in the world, and this tour will take you to see all the main parts of the Canyon. The canyon is located in Chivay, about 4 hours from Arequipa, and is also famous for being the home of the Andean Condor Bird, a bird with an incredible wingspan of over 10ft and on this tour you get up close and personal with these majestic birds! 2 day tours allow you to sleep 1 night in the town of Chivay, and 1 day tours allow you to see all the main parts of the canyon and come back to Arequipa in the same day, great for those short on time.
Price: 100 Soles (around $28 USD) – 2 Day Tour includes 1 night accommodation
Times: 2 Day Tour begins at 08:00am to 17:00pm (next day). 1 Day Tour begins at 03:00am and returns the same day at 17:00pm
COLCA CANYON TREK
Trek down into the second deepest canyon in the world, descending from 3,500 metres all the way to 1,700 metres, and sleep at an oasis lodge in the middle of the canyon. However, what goes down must go up, so the trek back up out of the canyon can be hard, but push yourself and you will always make it. The trek out of the canyon usually begins at sunrise, leading to breathtaking views as the sunrises from behind the canyon. Of course a stop at the Cruz del Condor, where you will see the world famous Andean Condor birds float over your head, is included in this trek.
2 Day Trek
140 Soles (around $40 USD) – includes accommodation and food (2 breakfast, 1 lunch, 1 dinner)
3 Day Trek
170 Soles (around $50 USD) – includes accommodation and food (3 breakfast, 2 lunch, 2 dinner)
Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world at 3,800 metres (12,500 ft) above sea level! The lake connects Peru and Bolivia and on a sunny day, the views here are spectacular. What is most interesting about the Peruvian side of Lake Titicaca (Puno) is that families have built floating villages or islands on the Lake. These families live on the middle of these islands made of reeds that they built over the last 100 years, with the 3 main islands known as Uros, Amantani and Taquile. The islands are a MUST for anyone visiting Peru and actually people on these islands have their own culture and even their own language (not Spanish) so it truly is somewhere not to be missed.
