Peru Pilgrimage – A Medicine Journey to Cusco & Machu Picchu

Join Us On An Extraordinary Spiritual Journey Before Your Kapitari Retreat

Would you like to deepen your medicine journey with Ayahuasca, to experience a deeper connection with the sacred power places and shamanic traditions of Peru? Once a month we travel to Machu Picchu with a group of special people to discover something deeper than a physical space, to connect with yourself with others and an enigmatic ancient spiritual center.

Join us on a spiritual adventure in the heart of the Peruvian Andes in the week before your Ayahuasca retreat, travel through the sacred valley with a mystic guide to Machu Picchu and experience more of this incredible country! Whether you’re travelling on to the Amazon or not, it’s a powerful heart opening medicine journey, it’s also the perfect preparation for a retreat.

Connect with Mother Earth, Sacred Places & Master Plants

Peru is one of the most staggeringly beautiful, interesting and mystical countries you’re ever likely to visit. It’s geographically diverse, with deserts, mountains and of course the amazing Amazon rainforest. If you desire to connect more deeply with Pachamama (Mother Earth), see spectacular locations that will take your breath away and learn about ancient spiritual wisdom then Peru is where you need to be.


Furthermore, coming to Peru and not visiting places like Machu Picchu and Saqsayhuaman would be like travelling through Egypt and not visiting the pyramids!

On average, about a third of our ayahuasca retreat participants also visit Cusco and Machu Picchu as part of their trip. We’ve teamed up with spiritual tour company Outer Travels Inner Journeys to offer you a spectacular 9-day group journey that you can join if you want to make the most of your time in Peru. Travelling with mystic guides for special ceremonies and meditations at sacred sites along the way.

More than just a tour, this is a shamanic medicine journey through the sacred valley – connecting with the ancient sites and teacher plants of the region to deepen the connection with the medicine plants and yourself.

Highlights Include:

Day 1 - Cusco

Cusco is one of the most beautiful cities in South America. It was the capital of the ancient Incan empire. It’s an incredible place to explore.

Day 2 - Sacsayhuaman

In many respects, Saqsayhuaman is the most impressive of all the ancient sites in Peru (and perhaps even the world). The location isn’t quite as spectacular as Machu Picchu, but take a closer look at the stones and you’ll notice what an amazing feat of engineering it is that almost certainly could not be replicated today. 

Day 3 - Pisac

Pisac is a small town in the Sacred Valley. Above the town is a ruin that almost compares to Machu Picchu. The views of the area are truly spectacular.

Day 4 - San Pedro Ceremony

San Pedro is a cactus that grows all along the Andes and it’s another amazing visionary plant teacher that has been used for thousands of years by the shamans of the Andes.

Day 5 - Ollantaytambo

At the other end of the valley is the town of Ollantaytambo. It’s another truly spectacular place and from here we get the train to Machu Picchu.

Day 6 - Train to Machu Picchu

In the morning you’ll get to explore the incredible ruin at Ollantaytambo. After lunch, we take the train to Aguas Calientes (aka Machu Picchu village) which is one of the most spectacular train ride rides in the world. The views from the train as it snakes through the mountains are magnificent.

Day 7 - Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It truly is a spectacular place guaranteed to fill you with awe and wonder from the moment you arrive.

Day 8 - Return to Cusco

After breakfast, we will return to Ollantaytambo by train and from there we will take the bus back to Cusco. In the evening we'll have a farewell dinner before going our separate ways in the morning.

What makes our journeys unique?

Our adventures are a gathering of like-hearted fellow travellers of the inner, exploring the outer. A totally new experience, immersed in the spiritual essence of Peru. We relax and open ourselves to receive all the Peruvian wonders and blessings through sacred sites and plant medicines. Travelling with awareness, open to love and to existence in the vast cosmology of the Andean world.

General Information

You should arrive in Cusco at least 1 day before the tour begins to help you acclimatise to the altitude.

We'll send you details about booking flights when you register.

At the end of the tour you will need to fly from Cusco to Iquitos (via Lima); however, we can book these flights if you wish at a cost of $250 and includes 2 nights accommodation in Iquitos.

How to register

Before registering there are a few things you should be aware of and agree with.

You need to be reasonably fit and in pretty good health. We’re going to be at high altitude (about 3300m / 10,000ft) for much of the tour and it can be pretty tough on some people, although the majority of people get over any altitude sickness within 24 hours.

Although you won't be doing any long hikes, you need to be comfortable on your feet for several hours, and there will sometimes be walking involved at locations that are rocky and steep to climb - nothing particularly dangerous, but not ideal for people with walking disabilities or chronic pain.

Accommodation will be mostly 2-star hotels, nothing extravagant, but all will be clean and comfortable and have character.

All rooms in hotels are shared (same sex, and 2 people to a room), if you’re coming with a partner or friend please let me know so we can put you together. If you wish to have a single room, it can be arranged at an additional cost of $360 (subject to availability).
