Trekking in other areas
Galaxia Expeditions organizes hikes and treks to any zone or area of the Cordillera Blanca, Cordillera Negra or Cordillera Huayhuash according to your wishes. There are various lagunas and valleys to visit around Huaraz! Less crowded and definitely worth visiting are i.e. Laguna Aquak, Laguna Rajucolta, Laguna Uruscocha, Canon del Pato, Laguna Paron and Shallap Valley as one day hikes. For longer treks we take you to Olleros-Chavin three day trek, Quillcayhuanca-Cojup, Cojup-Ishinca or Ishinca-Aquilpo - among others.
We provide also private trekking sevices in other areas in Peru, for example Cusco and Arequipa.
