Due to COVID-19 Corona virus pandemic and certain travel restrictions we are applying some temporary policy changes to some of our tours.

For Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges (IT-PEIR01):

The situation in Peru has improved significantly in the past few weeks so we are planning to restart our programs in March 2021 (we normally close in January and February due to the heavy rainy season).
We have also established more flexible terms and conditions for new bookings made in 2021, allowing guests to move their trip to a different departure date up to 1 month in advance.

We are reducing our number of rooms for sale in order to reduce the number of people on the route and in our lodges.
We are also increasing the number of vehicles to respect social distancing.
While on the trip, we will arrange for separate dining tables for each group and slightly different start times to allow for proper distancing. 
Masks are required at all times, as well as shields during transportation on trains and at airports. 

Machu Picchu Sanctuary is open to visitors at 50% capacity. Reservation for 2022 entry permits will open soon and we recommend that you provide us with your travelers information (full names, passport number, nationality, date of birth) as soon as possible to purchase these permits (non-refundable).

Every step of our guest experience has its own set of protocols to guarantee your safety and wellbeing while fulfilling our vision: Providing an excellent service.
