Location Information:
Once considered an afternoon stop-over on the way to MachuPicchu, more and more visitors are deciding to make Ollantaytambo the primary destination from whence they can experience the Sacred Valley and all it has to offer. In contrast to Cuzco, the small village atmosphere, lower altitude and easy access to incredible hikes has prompted many of our guests to feel more comfortable here and thus extend their stay. Ollantaytambo is called “the last living Inka village” as it has been continuously inhabited since the 13th century. It was the town for the Inkan Nobility and High Priests and once you are here it is hard not to notice the magic. So come walk the streets of gigantic jigsaw stonework or try some chichi (Inka Beer- fermented corn) with the indigenous people who are the direct descendents of the Inkas. Let us introduce you to some of these wonderful local people who can guide you into their world, provide cultural connection within traditional communities where tourist seldom venture and lead you on stunning treks through the natural wonder.

Casa De Wow!!!

Casa De Wow!!!

Ollantaytambo, Peru · Member since January 2012

Casa de Wow!!! began as the creative venture of Winn and Wow.
Winn comes from Asheville, NC in the United States. She had a three month trip planned for Peru and upon arriving in Ollantaytambo was unable to stick to her return schedule. She found the traditional culture, natural beauty and ease of life in Ollanta irresistible. Winn is into permaculture, progressive consciousness, divine feminine and spiritual adventure. She also just published her first book called, Death is a Miracle!

Wow (aka Roberto Canal Luna) is a native quechua of Ollantaytambo. His family heritage traces back to the days of the Inkas and his family home here retains original Inkan stonework. Wow is an incredible creative artist. He works in many mediums, though fabric art is his first passion. Wow also is a spiritual guide, working with the local plant spirit medicine, whacuma... his tours are amazing, authentic and unique!
