The majestic peaks surrounding Peru’s Sacred Valley create a playground for nature enthusiasts, and with an extensive network of trails around the property, there is no shortage of hiking and birding opportunities. These mountains are also home to vibrant Quechua communities and the lodge gives guests a direct link to the traditions of these vibrant cultures.

Food and Drink

The lodge is home to an impressive ten-acre farm, where crops are cultivated using traditional hand tools and oxen—methods used by Sacred Valley farmers for centuries. Guests are invited to pick their own produce, including native crops such as artichokes, potatoes, and quinoa. The kitchen then uses these organic ingredients in the preparation of gourmet meals, infusing them with a blend of local and international flavors. With a large selection of macerated piscos to choose from, there are also plenty of ways to enjoy Peru’s national drink, the pisco sour.
