Sacred Valley and Lares Adventure by MLP
Mountain Lodges of Peru invites you to experience an authentic slice of Peruvian life! Immerse yourself in a cultural exploration of the celebrated Sacred Valley of the Incas and the less known Lares Valley, noted for its rural atmosphere, traditionally dressed local weavers and roving herds of alpacas and llamas. The journey culminates in a visit to the archaeological site of Machu Picchu.
Comfortable mountain lodges serve as deluxe 'basecamps' for flexible daily activities. Guets visit remote passes with views of a panorama of waterfalls, snowy peaks and turquoise glacial lakes, with the occasional condor soaring above, as well as tiny Andean highland communities, unchanged for centuries, to meet local weavers and farmers and get a glimpse of the distant past.
We offer unique multi-activity adventures for all fitness levels. At the day’s end, guests relax in a comfortable lodge with wonderful amenities - it’s the best of both worlds. Expert guides accompany are on hand throughout the journey and share their knowledge of natural history, culture, and local traditions.
All itineraries include explorations of the breathtaking Inca sites of Pisac, with its remarkable stone structures, Ollantaytambo, where the rebel Inca leader Manco Inca defeated the Spanish in battle, and incomparable Machu Picchu, the crowning glory of the Incas and the archaeological wonder of all South America.
For the most comprehensive experience, we recommend the seven-day trip but if guests are short on time, the five-day journey includes the most iconic Inca sites of the Sacred Valley and the best activities in the Lares region. Weekly departures from March to December.
