Top of the Line Equipment
Peru Travel Sky Domes is dedicated to making sure we have the best equipment available. Casual Adventure Camping Store are NORTH FACE BRAND
Enjoy a good night’s sleep in our spacious 4 season North Face tent. All our tents are built to be four man tents, but you will only have to share with one other trekker. This leaves a lot of room to spread out comfortably and store your duffels. They are an A-frame design, with entrances on both sides of the tent. They also include a vestibule in front, giving you some extra outdoor space to leave your boots and walking sticks. We are proud to be the only company to use these tents.
We use mummy style sleeping bags that are usable in -15° C / 5° F. Please note that if you are over 1.95 meters / 6’4″ tall, you won’t be able to find a North Face sleeping bag rental in Cusco. In this case, it is recommended to bring your own..
A foam mat is included to separate and insulate you from the ground. For added comfort, you may want to consider upgrading, by renting an inflatable sleeping pad, which adds three inches of comfort on top of the provided foam mat. We use Thermarest and Eureka inflatable air mattresses.
All of our walking sticks are by Black Diamond and fold up for when you are not using them. They are sturdy and adjust to your height. Even for those of you who are great trekkers, having a set of sticks is helpful on all treks, especially if the weather turns bad, or when you reach some of the steeper portions of the hike.
There is no need to add additional hiking in the middle of the night when you have to use the bathroom. We set up spotless, environmentally friendly toilet tents, right at your camping and lunch sites. This way, you don’t have to bother with the park toilets, that are not in great condition. In addition, this method lessens our footprint on the environment, while adding the convenience and luxury of a private bathroom to your trekking adventure.
OUR BUFFET FOOD IN THE TOUR

Our trekking chefs are geniuses! It is hard to believe that they can prepare such enjoyable meals with the conditions and equipment provided on the trek. There is no shortage of sumptuous and abundant meals while trekking.
Enjoy the Best Chefs in the Mountains
We include all meals and snacks for every trek until the last lunch (after your tour of Machu Picchu). For your last lunch in Aguas Calientes, or for all train tours, you will have the option to dine at one of the many restaurants in Aguas Calientes village.
All food is prepared from fresh ingredients, that are purchased in the Cusco local market. Everything is transported by the porters, and then prepared by the chef. We do not use any canned or rehydrated food. It is all fresh, healthy and delicious!
Do you have special dietary needs? No problem! We cater to vegetarians, vegans and any food allergies.
How about the water? We take tap water from each campsite and boil it for 15 minutes, so it is safe for you to drink. There is plenty of water provided during each trek, but you will only need to carry enough water to get you to the first lunch stop. You can refill your bottles at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
You will be well fed during any of our Adventure Treks. Food will be provided five times a day, beginning with a big breakfast, a snack, a tremendous lunch, an afternoon tea (happy hour), and finally dinner.
