Mountain Lodges of Peru offer a unique adventure travel experience in the Sacred Valley of the Inca's.
Their adventures take you off the tourist trail letting you take in the outstanding natural beauty of the Andes and revealing the authentic culture and customs of the Quechua people. Their ancestors have called these mountains their homes for thousands of years. As the descendants of the Inca's, meeting them is a rewarding and insightful experience as they share with how they have adapted to life in this harsh and unforgiving landscape.
In the evening you will arrive at the warmth and comfort of the luxurious lodges. The staff will greet you at the door and offer you a refreshing soft drink and a warm towel to freshen up. Your bags will be taken to your room and you will be free to relax.
After a hot shower, why not head for a massage or a soak in an outdoor hot tub or you can enjoy a light snack, or a refreshing beverage and take a moment to enjoy the stunning Andean vistas.
In the evening you will be briefed on the next day's activities before sitting down to dinner with your travelling companions.
Mountain Lodges of Peru offers three main itineraries, The Salkantay Trek, The Lares Adventure and the Grand Andean Experience.
Whilst all three adventures end with a visit to Machu Picchu, which one you choose depends on the focus you want to place on your trip. The Salkantay trek is primarily trekking orientated, as you walk (or ride) between high altitude lodges, whilst the Lares Adventure lets you choose between visits to important cultural sites in the valleys or trekking in the mountains. The Grand Andean Experience lets you do both.
The Salkantay is a 7-day lodge to lodge trekking adventure that lets you experience up close the history of the Incas, as well as the exotic variety of flora and fauna indigenous to the Andes. You will be joined on your adventure by a small group of new friends and like-minded travellers. You can also do the adventure on horseback should you prefer.
The Sacred Valley and Lares Adventure to Machu Picchu can be either a 5 or 7-day lodge to lodge journey through the culture, history and landscape of the sacred valley. The programme consists of a choice between cultural and trekking options on each day. You will also have the opportunity to go mountain biking on one of the days, but there is an additional charge.
The Grand Andean Experience combines the best of the Salkantay Trek and the Lares Adventure into one exciting 10-day package. That gives you a really in-depth look into the communities and culture of the sacred valley and its surroundings.
