Our Cooks

We understand how important a nutritious and hearty meal is after a challenging day of trekking. You need something to warm you up and regain all those burnt calories. That’s why we employ chefs with years of experience cooking on the trail and extensive knowledge of ingredients and nutrition. That way, they can provide filling and varied meals with only the freshest of ingredients and many flavors.

Each year, Salkantay Trekking has an annual course for our chefs to help train, develop their skills, and create new dishes. Each of our menus is put together by an Andean nutrition expert. Many of the local dishes prepared on the routes are extremely nutritive and contain plenty of carbs - perfect for trekking!

Every chef prepares different meals depending on what food they have available as well as using their own family recipes to make the tastiest and most delicious options. You can guarantee that you'll be well-fueled on our treks with tried and tested recipes over generations.

What makes these trips different?

We believe that a vacation should be more than a hotel room, a flight and a rental car. It should be more than the sum of its parts. We also believe a challenge can help you grow and a trip can stir the soul. We create journeys worth taking - for the traveler, for the host and for the world.
