During this multi-day excursion, guests will get the chance to hang out in the coastal town of Ica, famous for its vineyards, the city of Huaraz, known for its demanding mountain hikes, as well as several other notable sights in the Cordillera Huayhuash.

What to expect?

  • Beginning in Lima, you’ll head to the coastal town of Ica for some local vineyard sampling for the day. Following this, you’ll head to Huacachina, the very definition of a “desert oasis,” for a sandboarding adventure on the surrounding desert dunes.

  • Then it’s on to Huaraz for a 3-day mini-trek through Huayhuash. The shortened 3-day excursion allows you to experience an abbreviated version of the long trek, while not compromising on the stunning views.

  • As an aside; this route is a little more demanding than the more classic Santa Cruz trek route. It is considered to be suitable for novice trekkers and hikers; however, ensuring that a program of acclimatization is followed properly before departure. During the trek, you will be rewarded with a series of glacial lakes and snow-capped Nevadas along the way.

  • This 3-day trek is centered around the incredible Jahuacocha Lake area; considered one of the most scenic places in alpine trekking, to trek and camp out. Along the route you’ll see the important sights of the Cordillera Huayhuash; hit the Rondoy Valley, scale the impressive Sambunya Pass and experience the beautiful natural Jahuacocha Lake.

  • Following your trek in the Huayhuash, you’ll spend a final night in Huaraz before heading out onwards to Lima for your onward connecting flights. It’s never goodbye, only until the next time!
