An exploration of our planet’s most mystical historical site high in the Peruvian Andes
High in the Andes resides a destination so mysterious that it lay in hiding for hundreds of years. Machu Picchu – the Lost City of the Incas – originated in the 15th century, built as a massive stone citadel. Now partially uncovered, those who delve into its history are provided a spiritual encounter like none other on the planet. On our Peru journey, we’ll explore the historic colonial city of Cusco then head into the Sacred Valley, walking the traditional trails that line the slopes of some of South America’s most impressive mountains. Morning yoga and mindfulness complement our local activities, and evening meetings build the all-important recovery community that accompanies us on our journey.
Private departures for families, friends & recovery groups available. Call for details.
High in the Andes, our lodgings enhance the experience, providing peace, authenticity and a sense of place.
