The Company With The Most Experience.
Peaks & Places has 30 years of experience in organizing and guiding Climbing and Trekking trips in Peru. We specialize in guided climbing trips in the Cordillera Blanca, climbing Urus, Ishinca, Tocllaraju, Pisco and Chopicalqui. Peaks & Places offers the best trekking experience around the Cordillera Huayhuash walking little known trails that provide the best views of the range, not the traditional trails all other companies offer. Peaks & Places is one of the few companies offering a combination of trekking around Mt. Ausangate and climbing Mt. Ausangate. We also guide trekking trips around Mt. Salcantay connecting with the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
We are a small company but we provide BIG ADVENTURE with excellent service, attention to detail and affordable prices.
Peaks & Places was founded in 1982 by Brad Johnson, author and publisher of the guidebook: “Classic Climbs of the Cordillera Blance, Peru” and publisher of the Cordillera Huayhuash Map. Peaks & Places knows the Cordillera Blanca and Huayhuash mountains better than any other commercial company running trips to Peru. Now we have developed a new 8 day trekking adventure around the Cordillera Central. A trek that will rival the Cordillera Huayhuash!
Cost Effective Trips Means More Savings for You.
Because we have our own staff and all of our own equipment located in Peru we do not need to use a “middleman” and we can pass the savings on to you.
IFMGA Certified Mountain Guides.
Our goal is to provide you with an exciting adventure led by professional certified guides who look out for your safety, educate you about the mountains, whether trekking or climbing, and at the same time give you the comforts of home away from home.

“This was my fourth commercial climbing trip to South America. It was by far the best trip I have had. Outstanding guides, unbelievably good food, great organization and beautiful climbing. All in all, a great trip!”
--Garry Porter, Ishinca Valley & Chopicalqui Climbs
“Having traveled with other outfitters through South America in the past, Peaks & Places offers by far the best value and finest trekking and mountaineering experience that I have had. From the well-designed itineraries to the equipment, food and most importantly the guides and support staff, Peaks & Places truly offer a “peak” experience. Unhesitatingly recommended to anyone considering a South American adventure.”
