For the newlyweds looking to start their lives together on the right foot, spirited adventure travel operator Mountain Lodges of Peru has a solution. Mountain Lodges of Peru’s Lares Adventure offers fully customizable five and seven-day itineraries on the Lares trail to Machu Picchu.

These itineraries offer a wide range of activities that keep you active and inspired during your honeymoon, as you exercise your body, as well as your mind, and learn more about the local Andean communities.

Activities include hiking to iconic, archeological Inca sites, authentic cultural exchanges with remote mountain communities whose traditions have remained unchanged for centuries, and visits to local markets and museums. Time can also be spent participating in yoga and meditation sessions (upon request), biking, and much more.

After a day filled utilizing your body and mind, you and your spouse can head down to the high-end lodges that serve as luxurious base camps.

Don’t let the term base camp scare you. No tents will be pitched here! Chefs at each lodge prepare healthy, gourmet meals that include traditional foods such as quinoa and local cereal, fresh veggies, fish and meats.

Following your guilt-free, gourmet meal, unwind in your personal Jacuzzi. Still not feeling up to par following your hike in the mountains? Massage services are provided to help soothe your sore muscles. 

Five day, four night packages are $2,250 USD per person, while seven day, six night packages are $2,950 USD per person. This rate includes accommodations, all meals (except breakfast on the first day and dinner on the last day), transfer services, guided tours, daily a-la-carte activities, any necessary entrance fees and permits, and tips for all of the staff at the lodges and in the field, except for guide tips.
