How far is the lodge from Huaraz?
We are located 35 minutes North East from Huaraz by a rough dirt road. Whilst you don’t need 4 x 4 to access us we recommend arriving whilst there’s still daylight. GPS WILL NOT WORK, however, we will send you directions upon confirmation of reservation. Our location is perfect for people whom want direct access to day hikes but not recommended for people wanting quick and easy access to Huaraz.
Do we need a car?
Whilst renting a car can give you lots of freedom to explore the area, many of the roads aren’t very well marked and GPS does not work well in the area. Per request we can arrange safe-taxi transfers between all trailheads, bus stations, airports, and various areas. There’s also collectivos that run between a neighboring town and Huaraz, which is about a 20 minute hike from our front gates.
How can I get from Lima International Airport to Huaraz?

What sort of activities are there to do?
Given our close proximity to Huascaran National Park we have a myriad of day hikes outside of our front gates in addition to rock-climbing, mountain biking, and horse riding. Please see our recommended tour packages to get an idea for area activities.
