Exploring Rainbow Mountain Peru

Exploring Rainbow Mountain Peru

As an avid trekker and outdoor enthusiast, the vast offerings of Peru and the Andes Mountains are a dream come true. Occasionally I find myself overwhelmed by the options I have at my fingertips, but when I arrived in Cusco for the first time there was no doubt in my mind what my priority adventures were – the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and a trek to the beautiful Vinicunca, Rainbow Mountain Peru. If you are a like-minded outdoor enthusiast, contact Aracari or email travel@aracari.com for a tailormade trip to Peru including…

Yumbilla Waterfall Hike: A walk in the cloud forest

Yumbilla Waterfall Hike: A walk in the cloud forest

Only an hour’s drive away from Gocta Waterfall – the main attraction in this beautiful part of Chachapoyas, in Northern Peru, Yumbilla waterfall offers a great second hike if you’d like an extra day exploring the mystical cloud forest.  I visited Yumbilla on a recent inspection trip with my colleague Claudia, one of Aracari’s travel planners. A quieter trail, very few people venture to Yumbilla or have even heard of it, and because of that you’ll be rewarded with a serene and tranquil walk through the forest – we only passed one small group…

Sarcophagi of Karajia Tour

Sarcophagi of Karajia Tour

The Chachapoyas people buried their important dead in high, difficult to access locations, facing the rising sun or a village, and always close to water. The sarcophagi of Karajía stand proudly on a ledge above a river gorge in the Chachapoyas region – a stunning site in a quiet, unassuming location in Chachapoyas – very easy to miss if you don’t know where to find it – which is why we recommend visiting the sarcophagi of Karajía on a private tailormade Chachapoyas tour. I visited Karajia with Yasmin, one…

Weekend in the Andes, Llanganuco Lodge Peru – Part Two

Weekend in the Andes, Llanganuco Lodge Peru – Part Two

Weekend in the Andes And Lauren, too! | Shortly after the sun had set over the Cordillera Negra, the equally as amazing moon emerged over the opposite snow covered peaks, slowly creeping into the dark sky and illuminating the valley.  Light pollution is relatively unknown to this remote area, and this gave us an unencumbered view of the celestial bodies that dominated the night sky.  We convened in the candlelit lodge, joining our fellow guests, who gathered around the communal dining table or snuggled into the couches enjoying…

Freewheeling across the Andes: Peru Motorcycle Tours

Peru Motorcycle Tours Coasting along the open road, the exhilarating feeling of cruising through wild mountain landscapes between multiple points of interest: Peru motorcycle tours are a great way of blowing off steam and having the freedom to visit destinations that you wish on your own schedule. The King of Jordan recently tried his hand at this innovative way of travelling during his visit to Peru for the summit of South America-Arab countries, he went all the way from Lima to Cusco on his bike. Aracari’s close friends…
