Equestian test

Experience a horseback ride like no other. Gallop through undulating open vistas. Climb rugged high mountain trails and meander beside raging rivers.

We’d like to introduce you to your trusty steeds: the finest American Quarter Horses from top farms in Uruguay. Our horses have also been through an extensive training program, which means they’re the perfect trail companions to riders with a range of experience in the high mountain terrain.

Those in search of a true once-in-a-lifetime experience can choose to make their pilgrimage to Machu Picchu in comfort with our sure-footed horses as their ideal traveling partners. Guests on horseback may choose to use Mountain Lodges of Peru’s outstanding collection of satellite lodges along an uncrowded route that led early Incas to the great city of Machu Picchu.
