Huaypo Lake activity day, Cuczo

If you want to reconnect with nature and try your hand at a few new activities, this could be the tour for you. For this experience you’re headed for the natural beauty of Huaypo Lake. On the journey from Cuzco you’ll pass through local villages and farms; watch daily Andean life unfold as children make their way to school and farmers go about their days.

Once you arrive at the lake you’ll met your guide who will give you a short talk on safety and run through the basics of kayaking with your group. Then it’s time to get in the water and explore. You’ll paddle gently through the waters soaking up the natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere. Keep your eyes peeled for the many types of birds that live in this area; you might also spot local fishermen out looking for a catch.

Be sure to take in all the views – from the middle of the lake you’ll enjoy a wonderful scene backed by the snowy Andean peaks. Once you are done kayaking you’ll return to the shore and drop off your equipment. Next up, you can take a horse ride through the surrounding area for a different perspective of this breathtakingly beautiful corner of the world.

Let's talk
I’m a landscape buff, so love Peru for its combination of deserts, snow-capped Andes and Amazon jungle. I’ll never forget experiencing sunrise at Machu Picchu – I climbed 3,000 steps in the dark to get there in time, but the colours of the morning light were definitely worth it!
