About the Huilloc Community Tour 1D

Add an extra day to your trek and visit the charming community of Huilloc! On this one-day cultural immersion you will visit a Quechua family and experience a bit of life in the rural Andes. Huilloc is a lovely, bustling Andean community located about 30 minutes away from Ollantaytambo, where community members still wear traditional dress. Spending time with a Quechua family is a great way to experience the real Peru in the highlands of Cusco! This is a great cultural immersion experience.

Available on: Lares to Machu Picchu 4D trek; Classic Inca Trail 4D trek; Short Inca Trail 2D trek. You must book a private trek.



Prices are per person in USD, based on group size. We do not have fixed-date group departures. If you do not want to book a private tour, please see our Trekkers Wanted page for a list of open departures within your dates.
