Peru Mountain Lodges Lares Trek

Written by

Pisa Ruins Sacred Valley Peru  Ollantaytambo Sacred Valley Peru

Peru Mountain Lodges Lares Trek

New lodges for Trekkers in Peru will come online and available in 2014 on the Lares Trek. Discover one of the best ways to experience a moderate mountain hiking adventure vacation by staying in superb comfortable cozy lodges with 8 to 10 of your hiking companions while enjoying guided hiking through the spectacular scenery, majestic mountains of the Peruvian Andes in charming lodges which include all meals, hot showers, private rooms and comfortable beds, no camping on the ground or getting wet in your tent.

The Lares Trail, a wonderful alternative to the more heavily traveled Inca Trail, is noted for its cultural attractions, including traditional weavers attired in colorful dress, roving herds of alpacas and llamas, and a panorama of waterfalls, snow peaks, and glacial lakes. The new mountain lodges, built in the towns of Lamay and Ollantaytambo and in the rural community of Huacahuasi, serve as deluxe “base camps” for day hikes in the surrounding environs. Guests may join a fixed departure or exclusive group from Cuzco, complete with an expert guide who will be with the group for the entire journey to Machu Picchu.

An extensive network of trails throughout the region lead to traditional Andean highland communities unchanged for centuries, where guests can meet local weavers and farmers and get a glimpse of the distant past, and to spectacular Inca archaeological sites including Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley, where the rebel Inca leader Manco Inca defeated the Spanish in battle. The lodge at Ollantaytambo is also an excellent gateway to visiting the spectacular site of Machu Picchu. More challenging trails bring guests to remote passes with views of Andean peaks, with the occasional condor soaring above. Two programs (7-day and 5-day) are designed to offer different hikes daily for a variety of experience and abilities.

In addition to the Lares Trek is the established Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu. This lodge-to-lodge trek is 9-days/8-night journey beginning and ending in Cusco with overnight stays in 4 unique comfortable cozy lodges with hot showers, private rooms and all meals and guide. This deluxe mountain lodges experience primarily catering to travelers from the United States and Europe. The lodges on the Lares Trail and in the Sacred Valley will be of similar type as to the lodges on the Salkantay Trek. Similar architecture designed will blend into the existing landscape along with the use of local materials—stone, adobe, wood, and straw—that reflect the region’s traditional construction. The lodges are also energy efficient, with high-performance solar and space water heaters.

Thinking of a trek into Peru this year but not excited to sleep on the ground in a tent, call us for details on these new hiking adventures at 1-800-626-3483.
