Longer Hikes & Camping Trips


Visit Apu Chicon or Pumahuanca River, two of the most pristine, least-visited natural gems of the Sacred Valley, right above Urubamba. Your trip will be led by Avishai, our Associate Director, and includes picnics and nutritious meals cooked by your experienced, friendly youth guides. All equipment included.

Half-day:  A four-hour hike with expansive views of the Sacred Valley
Full-day: If we set aside a full day, we can get far off the beaten path and really explore the natural wonders of the valley
Overnight camping: Includes tents, mats, sleeping bags, and food. You will return absolutely restored and filled with gratitude for the beauty of nature.

The minimum charge is for two people, which allows for a donation to support the Children’s  Home as well as paying for your guide’s time and planning. If you’d like to do a solo hike, just register as if for two people. Thank you!


All hikes, tours, and classes are led by friendly, experienced adolescent youth guides from Niños Del Sol Children’s Home.  Your payment, which is a tax-deductible donation in the United States, helps support the Niños Del Sol Children’s Home in Urubamba and our companion residence for college kids in Cusco.

Our adolescent and young adult Niños designed these programs on their own, guided by their lifelong interactions with tourists to the Sacred Valley. They’re learning business skills as well as practicing their English while they earn a part-time income and help support their home.

We are contacted by many tourists who want to visit our home, bringing gifts or offering the gift of their labor, but for kids, this is a better option. They are learning how to earn rather than passively receive, and they are meeting donors as equals, with something of value to offer in exchange for your donation. Thank you for supporting this program.
