WHERE THE ANDES MOUNTAINS MEETS THE AMAZON
Raft and fish in pristine waters
The town of Quince Mil is uniquely situated at an ecological divide: at the base of the mystic Andean mountains and the beginning of the Amazon rain forest. With a secluded, family lodge as our base, we will venture out into the neighboring rivers and tributaries in search of local yatorana and dorado species. Just hours from the city of Cusco, you’ll experience much more than the archaeological riches of the Inca Empire!
