We organise trips in the Cordillera Blanca, Negra and Huayhuash in the Huaraz region, as well as in the rest of Peru. Our activities include: trekking, mountaineering, rock climbing & bouldering, day trips and horse riding. The agency was founded in 2002 by the brothers David and Walter Lazo. Today the agency is run by David Lazo and his Belgian wife Marie Timmermans. David’s extensive local knowledge and experience of the mountains combined with Marie’s understanding of foreign traveller’s needs guarantees the trip of a lifetime. Our itineraries are designed to ensure you get the most out of your trip, allowing plenty of time for acclimatisation and to enjoy the great natural beauty of the Peruvian Andes. We maintain a great relationship with our staff by paying them fairly and only employing those we feel are adequately qualified, knowledgeable and passionate, and are also dedicated to providing you with the very best and safest travel experience. Our trips offer exceptional value for money, with good quality equipment and vehicles, fully qualified and professional guides, and plenty of delicious and healthy food for you. At QUECHUANDES we cherish the unspoiled environments that we travel through and we are dedicated to protect them by minimising the impact of our presence. We take all the steps possible to leave the places we visit in their pristine original state. We also strongly recommend that our clients use biodegradable products.
