Peru. Trek to Machu Picchu+Virgen del Carmen Festival, 7/5-18, 2013 [Currently Not Active]


Our Machu Picchu Mountain Lodge Trek is a spectacular high elevation trek through the Andes connected by a series of four premier, boutique trekker's accommodations constructed in the finest tradition of European-style hut to hut hiking. All rooms are heated each with private bath (hot and cold water). The end of each day trekking awaits a pisco sour and gourmet meal of Peruvian and international cuisine paired with fine wine in a well-appointed lodge with an outdoor Jacuzzi and a cozy bed and duvet complete with high thread count. The first lodge on the route, Salkantay Lodge, has 12 rooms accommodating 24 persons, and each of the other three trekker's lodges (Wayra, Collpa, Lucma Bamba) accommodate only 12 persons in 6 private double rooms. All of these luxury trekking lodges have fireplaces, outdoor Jacuzzi, ambient heating, dining areas serving Peruvian/International cuisine, bar and lounge facilities, and potable water. In Paucartambo we utilize a comfortable full-service tented camp catered by kitchen and housekeeping staff.

""The two main highlights were trekking to Machu Picchu because of the amazing sites, physical challenge and camaraderie; and the festival of the Virgin del Carmen in Paucartambo because it was such a unique cultural experience...all of the guides were top notch and this is the best group we have ever traveled with. We had been looking forward to this trip for several years and it exceeded our highest expectations!"" - Janine and Doug King, Peru 2007
