Horse Riding Holidays in Peru

Peru

Peru is the most popular country for Brits to visit in South America because it's safe, easy to get around and full of amazing things to do and see.

Peru's major icon is Machu Picchu which is a "must see" for all travellers. But it's good to add a twist and ride to the citadel and avoid the crowds. Horse riding holidays in Peru are a perfect combination of visiting thre major sights and riding in unspoilt country.

Choquequirao is just as spectacular as Machu Picchu and if anything the ride to this citadel is even more impressive than the horse ride to Machu Picchu. Best of all is to combine the two and ride through the remote, high and absolutely stunning Andes between these sister citadels.

Horse Rides

Ride to Machu Picchu

Ride horses descended from the Conquistador Andalusians and explore spectacular country surrounded by peaks on every side rising to over 6,000m. The ride ends outside Machu Picchu and walk in to explore Machu Picchu.

El Mapi Inn, Machu Picchu village

This hotel is also owned by Inkaterra, who own La Casona in Cusco and the near-by Machu Picchu Pueblo hotel. However, El Mapi is not 5 star – they claim four, but 3 is probably a fairer grading. Great hotel in a great location.
