    Food & Drink

    Healthy Organic Gourmet meals in all of your Lares Trek To Machu Picchu?

    Daily Seasonal Food on each trip and Tours

    Peruvian cuisine has only recently exploded onto the international culinary stage, but Peruvians have always been crazy about their nation’s culinary heritage, and they steadfastly cling to the traditional, multiculti flavors of home. Even in the face of modern gastronomic innovation. A range of climates, from high altitude to low, offers an impressive diversity of produce. Yes, that means potatoes over 3800 kinds but also a variety of corn and other grains, to say nothing of the country’s native aji chilies that are often puréed into sauces.

    Coffee, Tea, Water, & Assorted Beverages

    Every morning and afternoon, before and after your daily hikes you will find hot drinks and snacks in your dining tent.
