Meals on the Hike

When hiking, food is one of the fundamental parts of the hiker. Therefore, we always prepare nutritious and balanced food along the way in order to have adequate and correct nutrition while you make your journey. In Salkantay Trekking, we offer a great variety of local dishes for you to taste the typical food of the region.

We present the meals as a buffet option so you can choose what you want to eat. You can't imagine the delicacies prepared by our professional chefs on the route. They all do wonders with the limited products they bring on the trek, and hikers have rated their dishes better than several traditional restaurants in town.

The excellent food is prepared in small tents and on campfires, so our talented chefs adapt to the area and the conditions of the trip. They prepare each food instantly and with the proper protocols to make it delicious and safe. If you look at our reviews, you´ll see that our hikers are always satisfied.

Each of our professional chefs is well trained in haute cuisine schools and by Salkantay Trekking to delight you with the tastiest meals. We are sure that you´ll be more than satisfied with the food and snacks that we´ll provide during the trip.

We offer hearty breakfasts as a base meal for your trekking day, followed by lunches, dinners, and snacks, all served with a gentle smile to give you the energy you´ll need on the trek.

Do you have dietary restrictions? That's not a problem. We cater to everyone; if you are vegetarian, vegan, or have any food allergies, let us know so that our professional chefs can take it into account and you can still enjoy the best food with the restrictions you indicate.

Food with dietary restrictions
All the food prepared along the route contains fresh ingredients purchased in the local markets of Cusco, transported by mules, and selected by the chef. You won't find canned or rehydrated food here - everything is fresh, healthy, and delicious!

What about water? In each group, we bring tap water to filter and boil before each meal. You´ll receive hot and cold water when you taste your food, and you´ll also find bottled water in small stores along the route, as well as snacks and other beverages.

In addition, each day, we´ll provide you with coca tea to prevent altitude sickness and give you extra energy for the trek.

Each meal, along with snacks, will keep you going strong until you eat again.

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.
