Mountain Lodges of Peru


Hike through majestic Andean landscapes to Machu Picchu

Mountain Lodges of Peru


Custom | 12 Days | Rigorous Trekking
  • Two nights at Machu Picchu, so you can explore in relative peace
  • Hike between four magnificently sited lodges in the Andean highlands 
  • A privately guided, personalized visit to Cusco and the Sacred Valley 
  • Cross Salkantay Pass, surrounded by spectacular snowcapped peaks
  • Opt to add Lake Titicaca, the Amazon, Colca Canyon, and more

The highlights of the once-mighty Inca empire, Cusco and Machu Picchu, often eclipse the wonderful, modern-day communities tucked within the surrounding Andes. But on this journey you’ll get an intimate look at Peruvian mountain culture, hiking through indigenous villages by day and savoring exquisite hospitality by night, in addition to those shining highlights. All of Peru’s charms—scenic and human—are on display on this hiking and touring trip centered around sensationally set lodges, which look like they were airlifted from Vail. Stop in Lima before heading home or to other enticing South American destinations.
