PERU CULTURAL EXPEDITION

AGES 18+  

Peru Cultural Expedition

July 14 - July 27, 2019

This two-week expedition will take you from Peru’s coastal capital of Lima to the mountain city of Huaraz, where you will explore ancient history, iconic alpine lakes, local culture, and the impressive mountains of the Cordillera Blanca range. The trip includes a two-night trek into the mountains with the assistance of donkeys to help carry your things. During this trek, you will stay at a beautiful and remote refugio - a mountain hut seeped in local culture and history. The rest of your time will be spent visiting ancient archeological sites, hot springs, local art exhibits, and navigating Peru’s local cuisine. You will watch Peruvian artisans at work, explore traditional fabric markets, and taste the diverse flavors of Peruvian food. This trip provides an excellent balance of high altitude trekking with numerous rest days focused on exploring the local culture of Huaraz and its surroundings.

Optional add-ons:

  • Want more time in Peru? Consider joining us for a third week, during which you will fly from Lima to Cusco to hike the world-famous trek to Machu Picchu! In addition to a five-day guided trek to Machu Picchu, you will attend a sound meditation workshop and go on a Cusco City sightseeing tour. Explore the bustling Plaza de Armas and tour the many cathedrals, statues, museums and artisan markets of this historic city.

  • If you have a group of 4 or more, we are happy to provide you with a fully customized Peru travel experience. We’ll work with you one-on-one to design a customized trip to help you check off everything on your personal Peruvian bucket list! Reach out for more information.
