In this tour of Peru you will have the opportunity to get in direct contact with the Andean tribes, participating in the ceremony of the San Pedro Holy Plant in a lagoon near Cusco. You will visit the ancient Inca archaeological site of Pisac and take a spiritual excursion in the Andean lands inhabited by the indigenous communities of the Quero.
You will thus be able immerse yourself deeply in the Andean cosmovision, accompanied by healers and shamans of the Quechua, Amazon and Quero communities.

You will also enjoy the panorama of the Sacred Valley and visit the archaeological site of Machu Picchu, participating in the ancient Inca initiation ceremonies, including reading of coca leaves and offers to Mother Earth.

Direct contact with local indigenous peoples will be a constant part of the journey, first staying in a Quechua local house, sharing meals with the family. Later, time will be spent with the Quero community, isolated for about 500 years, a characteristic that has allowed it to keep the Inca wisdom intact. It will be a life-changing experience.

(Quero people live in villages at over 4000 meters above sea level, so it is essential to be in good physical shape and well equipped - you will receive all the necessary information once we have received your booking. Local staff wil provide food, camping equipment if necessary - tents, sleeping bags - and horses for transporting equipment and supplies).
