What you'll do

In the morning we leave from Urubamba in transport towards the starting point of our hike. We will hike within beautiful nature along a magical river to the ruins. Having arrived we will share a typical Andean lunch (vegetarian). During the hike I will teach you a bit about medicine plants and the Andean Cosmovision as well as playing some ancestral music for you. The archeological site is a very sacred place. We will enjoy a ceremonial fire so you can understand the importance of the fire for the Andean people. In the afternoon we will return to Urubamba, fully connected to nature, its elements and Andean wisdom. The day will finish in our home with a big spacious garden to enjoy a Peruvian cup of coffee or typical herbal tea. My English is basic, but it is a perfect opportunity to practice your Spanish or Quechua. If you don´t speak either of them, my wife will accompany us, who speaks English and German fluently. At a small additional cost we can also include a powerful cacao ceremony to this tour. I would be delighted to send you more details upon request.

Ivan

Hello, I am Iwa and come from an indigineous Quechua speaking community in Bolivia. Since more than two years I have been with my little multicultural family in Urubamba, in the Sacred Valley. I am an experienced mountain guide with various years of experience and knowing the area inside out because I live here and hike frequently, I am also a musician of ancestral music and artist. It is my passion to share my wisdom and ancestral knowledge with you. During my tours I offer an authentic experience through my music, small rituals and connecting to nature´s elements. We can also include a powerful and magical cacao ceremony to the tour at a small additional cost. On request I would be delighted to send you more details.
