  • Description


    We manage a family hostel in Huaraz, in the heart of the Cordillera Blanca, in the Peruvian Andes. Huaraz is an authentic and lively city. The region is ideal for discovering the Andes and its inhabitants, but also for going on an adventure in the mountains around us. Within Huascaran National Park (listed as World Heritage by UNESCO since 1985) there are countless trekking routes of one or more days (among the most beautiful in the world), climbing routes for all levels , ascents of glaciers for the bravest (20 glaciers over 6000 meters above sea level!).
    The language used in the family is Spanish but we can also communicate in English, French, German, Dutch, Hebrew and Arabic.
