About this trip

Admire sacred archaeological sites, colorful markets, breathtaking  scenery, and delve into the rich culture of the Quechua Indians, the  Inca descendants, in a very personal relationship with the land, the  people, and their customs. Among the highlights of the trip are visits  to Cusco, capital of the vast Inca State, known as the navel of the  ancestral world, and, of course, a day of marveling at Machu Picchu, one  of the seven wonders of the world. One event that makes the trip truly  unique is a visit to the traditional highland community of Amaru, where  we will participate in their communal workday, share a meal, enjoy  weaving demonstrations, music and dancing – a cultural exchange that  deepens the appreciation of Quechua history and social life.


Our hosts, Roman and Fielding Vizcarra, owners of the Pisac Inn and Peru Cultural Journeys, dedicate their lives to the celebration and preservation of traditional Andean culture. Meals are provided by the Pisac Inn’s restaurant Cuchara de Palo, celebrating the wealth of Peruvian Cuisine, and dedicated to organic, locally sourced and fresh ingredients. Peru’s ancient agrarian tradition resulted in an abundant diversity of products, with a myriad of flavors, colors and aromas that have won special recognition for Peruvian Culinary Art as one of the most exquisite and sophisticated on the planet.


Throughout our travels the yoga sessions will allow time for  reflection and integration of our incredible experiences, but if you or  your travel companion do not practice yoga, you can still join the tour and use the yoga time to spend at your leisure. The daily yoga practice ranges from an invigorating vinyasa sequence, to a restful, restorative session, depending on the other activities of the day and the needs of the group.


This Andean cultural journey combined with a yoga retreat sets  the stage for a profound cultural and personal experience. The woven itinerary, accommodations,  and meals celebrate the Andean perspective. Your participation directly  supports sustainable efforts to preserve traditional Andean culture.
