Experience Peru through all of your senses. Eat delicious local cuisine cooked each night by local chefs, trek through awe-inspiring landscapes, and soak up the warmth of remote Andean communities along the way. Arguably one of the best ways to see the Cusco region of Peru: through this ultimate experience you’ll get to take in the ancient city of Cusco, visit the Incan ruins of Machu Picchu, and test your strength on a unique trek around Apu Ausangate - one of the highest mountains in Southern Peru and the most important Sacred Mountain in Incan mythology.
This famous trek is a once in a lifetime lodge to lodge trek across mind-blowing Andean landscapes - from glaciers to technicolour rainbow striped mountains. This trek, named “El Camino del Apu Ausangate” or “The Road of the Apu Ausangate” takes place in the picturesque Peruvian Andes - a remote and unspoiled mountain paradise. This region is inhabited by llama and alpaca herding communities, and is one of the few remaining pastoralist communities in the world. Each day of the trek we’ll come across trailside hot springs, towering glaciers and rock faces, turquoise lakes, ragged llama and alpaca herds, and colourful mountain communities giving way to an empty landscape. Each night we’ll stay in a “tambo” or lodge, each with a different personality, where you’ll be served delicious local cuisine prepared by our Peruvian chefs. The word “tambo” is an ancient term used by the Incas to describe the "resting places" located along their amazing highway system that once covered large parts of South America. On the this trek you will be welcomed, as many travelling Incas would have centuries ago, into a different tambo each night, where you will have a chance to relax, socialise, and eat great food! By staying at these lodges you are also supporting the local way of life by contributing to their culture´s sustainable development and protection.
