Overview & Highlights

Explore Peru at the wheel of your own 4x4 car on this pre-designed adventure holiday which takes you off the beaten track through untamed territory. Combine independence and flexibility knowing that help, if needed, is always at hand.

  • Cusco: city tour and Sacsayhuamán ruinsEntrance fees to the sites are included

We present an adventurous and challenging way of exploring some of both Peru’s highlights and more remote areas - less visited but no less alluring.

An experienced and confident driver, you are excited by the idea of tackling sinuous, cliff-hugging, rock-and-dirt roads climbing and plunging through the tortured valleys of the ice-jacketed Andes, passing tumbling rivers and penetrating volcano-studded desert. You’ll love the freedom, the control, the ability to make ad hoc stops to investigate pocket-sized adobe villages, discover a secluded Inca ruin, gaze up at a condor or survey a flock of grazing vicuñas.

Here, on a pre-designed itinerary with pre-booked accommodation, you can drive a four wheel drive (4WD) vehicle yourself; accompanied by a support vehicle staffed by experts and carrying everything you might need to deal with an unforeseen eventuality.  

Travel to places away from the well-trodden tourist path. Your 4x4 vehicle allows access to authentic locations in remote areas. Visit top sights such as Cusco as well as emerging destinations with the colonial city Ayacucho. Maybe add a non-drive extension to wind down after your expedition, such as a visit to northern Peru, an Amazon cruise or even a trip to the Galapagos Islands.

If you wish to take a break from driving for a short while on any section of the route, support staff are available to drive for you. Safety is the number one priority. If you don’t want to do any driving you can travel as a passenger in your 4x4 vehicle with a local experienced driver. If you are travelling alone you can travel as a passenger in the support vehicle on any confirmed departure.
