As we start the New Year Belmond would like to tell you a little more about some of the special activities that you can enjoy at two of their very remarkable hotels.
Located in the breathtaking Colca Canyon in Arequipa, Belmond Las Casitas offers a variety of unique activities to enjoy while taking the time to unwind and reconnect with nature.
If you’re more of an adventurous soul, then riding Peruvian Paso horses around the Colca Canyon is a must! Journey through the Colca Valley and admire the inspiring views while the horses stop to drink water from the free-flowing river.
Belmond Las Casitas also has their very own trout pond, where guests are welcome to try their luck at fishing to later enjoy their catch at the renowned Curiña restaurant.
For a fun activity for the kids, you can help the farm staff bottle-feed young alpacas, one of Peru’s most adorable camelids, at various times throughout the day. Who wouldn’t want to make a daily habit of this?
Peruvian Cooking Classes:
A Peruvian journey isn’t complete without a cooking class! Belmond Las Casitas’ very own expert chef teaches you about the textures and flavours that make Peruvian cuisine truly unique at their Curiña restaurant.
If you’re traveling to Cusco, Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado, located in the peaceful Sacred Valley, is a haven of indulgence with breathtaking views!
When you start your journey be sure to take part in the following unforgettable experiences.
Picnic Rendez Vouz or Garden Lunch with a View:
Enjoy an unforgettable dining experience with astounding views of the Urubamba River.
Choose between these two guest favourites: A beautiful picnic that starts off with a tantalizing Pisco sour, snacks and dishes made with vegetables hand-picked from their organic garden, or experience an outstanding garden lunch with majestic views of the Sacred Valley mountains that includes a 3-course meal consisting of a garden salad, a variety of home-made breads, a main dish of trout, meat or chicken and a pumpkin cheesecake delight!
