HIKING WALKING/RUNNING

The Inn is a walker's paradise! Just walk out the door and take a casual stroll down a country road or a vigorous hike into a steep walled canyon to see the giant glaciated peaks of the Cordillera Blanca. We have it all! Perfect for all age groups and fitness levels. Walk on your own or take one of the local Spanish/Quechua speaking guides.

If you like running without dogs, traffic and want the challenge of high altitude, this is the place. There are kilometers of trails and roads to take your breath away.

We have included a variety of full day hikes that start from behind the Inn or close to it for you to see what is available in this area.
