Shifting focus from landscapes onto our horses, the Peruvian Paso Experience shows off a different kind of beauty.
At an hour-an-a-half, this intimate display celebrates our Peruvian Paso horses. Decorated with ceremonial saddles, our horses swagger across the Main House’s lawn displaying their individual elegance. Our rider – ‘Chalán’ – is equally dapper. Dressed in both a white, artisan poncho and sombrero, he guides each Paso through an equestrian performance, showcasing their unique gaits.
Following this, we will serve a 4-course Peruvian Feast. Our Head Chef has curated the finest Peruvian dishes, with a particular highlight being the ‘Cabrito a la Norteña’: a tender lamb cut infused with organic spices. Equally succulent, may be the iconic ‘Lomo Saltado’; however, we are also pleased to offer delicious pescatarian and vegan dishes, which celebrate a different side of Peruvian gastronomy.
After some fresh coffee, you will have the opportunity to ride our special Pasos. This trek takes you through the nearby ancient community and along the Vilcanota river, giving you the time to properly connect with your horse.
A perfect experience to share with those you love!
