Life changing!

We had the absolute privilege of trekking the Trail of the Apu with the Andean Lodges team. Bruno, our guide, was amazing. He was knowledgeable about the geography, the people, the challenges of altitude, and the amazing history of the region. His pop culture knowledge was pretty impressive too! We had a ton of fun and lots of laughs.
Nico, Nellie, Jorge, and Senor Kruz took incredible care of us throughout our five days. We had delicious three-course meals every evening, comfortable beds with fresh sheets (and warm water bottles), and a llama herd that did all of the heavy liftings. It's rare today to go somewhere that is so uniquely beautiful in every way. Thank you, Andean Lodges team, for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Incredible Scenery, Excellent Guide, Comfortable Lodges, Great Food!

This trek exceeded our expectations! It is in a remote location with few other tourists and the hiking is spectacular. Our guide, Alfredo, was excellent. He judged the group well and added on some side trips that made the trip extra special, especially an amazing ridge walk on a clear day. Our cook, Esteban, was also excellent and the entire crew was friendly and helpful. The lodges have no electricity or central heating but are comfortable with private bedrooms and bathrooms. We enjoyed being "off the grid" and eating by candlelight. It is chilly in the bedrooms at night but hot water bottles tucked in the beds help with that. Warm showers were much appreciated. We highly recommend a long acclimatization period or taking prophylactic altitude drugs so that you can enjoy the trek without worrying about altitude sickness.

Amazing Ausangate Trip

It was an amazing experience, the whole trip was great, we began with a comfortable trip around the Vilcanota Valley (cool views) then we have lunch made by the local people of Chillca's Town. During the following days, we hiked around the Ausangate, you can get great shots, the views are awesome. Totally recommended.

Unique, unforgettable trek

My husband and I trekked with Andean Lodges in the beginning of September 2019. What an experience! Andean Lodges met and exceeded our expectations with their wonderful hospitality and service. This is truly a one-of-a-kind trip: to be able to trek in a lesser visited area of Peru and spend each night in comfortable, beautiful lodges with delicious food was truly a luxury. It was also wonderful to meet so many of the locals and learn about their lives in the Andes.

We traveled quite extensively and Andean Lodges is truly one of the best companies we've ever dealt with. I can't recommend them enough!
