There are also ponchos, sweaters and bags.
Enjoy a Sacred Valley lunch at Wayra Ranch. As you walk up to the entrance of the ranch, you will see that the flowers and landscape are enough to grace the cover of any travel magazine and as you enter front doors you soon realize this is not your typical ‘ranch’. The decor inside the Wayra Ranch is one of a 5-star hotel, boasting local colors, crafts and animals. The ranch is equipped with a full bar, fireplace and enough room to entertain a full wedding party. In the terrace, a feeling of personal paradise overcomes you. You’ll be surrounded by wafting aromas of freshly baked bread from the ranch’s traditional wood ovens, as well as tasty empanadas with various fillings, served with lemon juice and hot pepper sauces, just to whet your palate. You will also enjoy a variety of potatoes grown in remote Andean communities, whose inhabitants preserve these potatoes as a part of their own histories. You will be amazed with the many varieties and their unusual tastes, which reveal themselves in sauces, prepared with local herbs grown in the ranch gardens. In the summer, the ranch will have recently harvested corn. With this same maize, you get to sample delicious chicha de jora and frutillada, typical local alcoholic beverages. As you enjoy your appetizers and drinks, dishes including local tamales, anticucho kebabs, roast lechón (sucking pork), baby chicken and salmon trout baked with local herbs will be served at your table, cooked to your taste, with abundant house salad made with products from our organic garden.
