Meals On the Hike

When you’re hiking, food is one of the most important parts. We understand this and always take nutritious and well-balanced food along on the trail. A majority of our meals are buffet-style so you get to choose what you want to eat. We offer a large variety of local dishes for you to try food from the region, which is also high in nutrition.

Only expert mountaineering cooks prepare the dishes and many of our trekkers have rated their plates better than many traditional restaurants in the cities. Each meal, along with the snacks, will keep you going until you eat again.

The excellent quality food is prepared by our top chefs in small tents on small stoves to adapt to the area and conditions on the trip. If you look at our reviews you’ll see that this doesn’t hinder the quality in the slightest and our trekkers are always pleased.

Our entire cooking staff is trained in top chef schools and by Salkantay Trekking to make the tastiest food. We always offer hearty breakfasts as a base meal for your day of hiking followed by lunch, dinner, and snacks, all served with a smile. We’re sure our delicious meals will exceed all of your expectations!

All the food along the routes is prepared with pure fresh ingredients purchased in the local markets in Cusco, transported by mules, and then put together by the chef. You’ll find no canned or rehydrated food here - everything is fresh, healthy, and delicious!

Do you have special dietary needs? That’s not a problem! We cater to everyone whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, or have food allergies.

What about water? With each group, we take along tap water to filter and boil before each meal. You’ll get hot and cold water with all your food and can also find bottled water at small shops along the trail, as well as snacks and other drinks.

We’ll also provide you with plenty of coca tea, which is extremely helpful in the mountains to prevent altitude sickness as well as give you some extra energy for hiking.

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.
