    "Just want to thank you for securing our trip on the Anacoluthe. It was a great time and we would highly recommend it. The barge was well appointed, the staff was fantastic and our guide was one of the best. And the food and wine were to die for. Thanks again for your help!"

    "This is just a wee note to tell you how very much we enjoyed our holiday. It could not have been better and will indeed be hard to surpass. We have lived in the lap of luxury in beautiful countryside and have been taken care of magnificently. You could not have been more attentive.

Itinerary

Day 1) Arrive Lima, Peru and overnight.

Day 2) Continue by airplane to Cuzco. Arrive, acclimate. Walking tour of city. Overnight.

Day 3) After an early breakfast depart from Cusco to drive along the beautiful Vicanota valley to the town of Checacupe, for a visit to the Colonial Temple of the Immaculate. We then continue for another hour’s drive anticipating the beginning of our Peru Trekking adventure and we arrive at the starting point of our trek at 14,077’. A short two mile Peru trek that gains just 200’ is a good warm up. We meet our hosts and overnight in the first of four community-built lodges.

Day 4) Our 11 mile trek begins after an early breakfast and takes us through the wide valley of the Upis, with spectacular glaciated mountains looming above the valley. We pass waterfalls and the Paloma lagoon where we will see llamas and alpacas dotted across the landscape, to reach Machuracay Tambo at the base of Apul Ausangate mountain, the highest in the Cusco region.

Day 5) We ascend to 16,900 feet in a demanding 18-mile day filled with one dramatic vista after another. From the glaciated south face of “apu” we travel on to the red sandstone formations of the “Nevado Del Inca” and reach our second lodge on our Peru trek.

Day 6) Today offers a geological kaleidoscope as we hike through mountains with red, ochre and blue strata as we trek some 25 miles over passes that vary from 15,500 to 16,200 feet. Hopefully we will see the graceful vicunas. Another lovely lodge awaits us at day’s end.

Day 7) Our last pass is Anta Pass and we then start a gradual descent to 12,700 feet where we will begin to see the first signs of houses and crops, the landscape wll then change to red sandstone then limestone which provides a perfect stone forest habitat for the vizcacha (a member of the chinchilla family). By the time we reach the valley our van will be waiting to take us to Cusco to overnight and celebrate and reminisce.

Day 8) Travel home or continue to Machu Picchu for more Peru trekking tours.
