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.
July 15-22 Limited Space
Private departures for families, friends & recovery groups available. Call for details.
The accommodations selected for this sober adventure were chosen for a combination of privacy, convenience, and authenticity. In Cusco, we stay in an historic colonial hotel located in the center of town. Once in the Sacred Valley, our accommodations range from one night in a remote comfortable camp with cots and bedding to several nights at a private luxury lodge with its own fruit trees and lovely grounds. All accommodations are of the deluxe or luxury category (except the tented camp) and have private bathroom facilities.
High in the Andes, our lodgings enhance the experience, providing peace, authenticity and a sense of place.
Our trips are specifically designed for sober travelers, and they include the services of a sober travel facilitator who runs meetings as well as meditation and yoga activities. All activities are optional, but they are designed to create community amongst like-minded people.
Activities on our adventures are all optional, and often include opportunities for participants to spend down time on their own or hanging out with others. After all, we are all about community. The hikes are all considered moderate or easy, though they take place at altitude.
