Incas del Perú information
Ever-active Lucho Hurtado of Incas del Perú, located in the same building as the restaurant La Cabaña, organizes many activities. Lucho is a local who speaks English and knows the surrounding area well. He arranges demanding, multiday mountain-bike tours and Andean mountain-trekking expeditions to the lake and glacier in the nearby mountains; the cost for trekking for one person starts at S1170 for a three-day/two-night excursion.
There are also treks on offer down the eastern slopes of the Andes and into high jungle on foot, horseback or public transport. It isn’t luxurious, but it’s a good chance to experience something of the real rural Peru: you can stay on Lucho’s father’s ranch in the middle of nowhere in the high jungle of the central Amazon. Five-day/four-night trips are S975 per person including food. Accommodations are rustic and trips can involve camping.
Incas del Peru also arrange Spanish and Quechua lessons, including meals and accommodations with a local family (if you wish), from about S600 to S900 per week. Lessons can be modified to fit your interests. You can also learn to cook regional dishes, engage in the local handicraft of gourd carving or discover how to play Andean panpipes.
