Apus Peru Comfort Camping
What is it and why should you do it?
About five years ago, long before we heard the term “Glamping,” we at Apus Peru innovated a “Comfort Camping” option so that folks could relax in comfort after a long, hard day of trekking. We included such amenities as a real camp bed, large tents for extra comfort, and even portable hot showers to freshen up after the trek.
With a dash of luxury, this new style of camping/ trek adventure is for people who want an ideal camping experience at the end of the day. It is for folks who love the idea of sleeping under the stars but who still want to indulge in those creature comforts after the large effort they have expended – in other words, they want the best of all worlds!
We at Apus Peru don’t like to overstate things – but some companies might call this “Luxury 4-Star Camping” or “Deluxe Camping”. This alternative for your Peru trip opens up camping to a wider range of people: folks who might not otherwise have the chance to experience camping in Peru will be likely to choose this option.
Comfort Camping enables you to concentrate on what is important: spending quality time with your family, friends, and loved ones. It allows your entire family to trek in comfort, and is a good choice for a multi-generational camping trip. That is not to say that you and your loved ones won’t be expending a strenuous effort during the daylight hours, as you climb Inca staircases at high altitude, and descend into verdant valleys; but at the end of the day, when everyone is likely to be hot, tired, and exhausted, the whole group will be able to relax in comfort.
The Comfort Camping option offers, among other things, a thicker Thermarest mattress that’s six inches off the ground, an inflatable pillow, deluxe sleeping bags, and a larger tent you can stand up and move about in. Perhaps best of all, you will be able to take a short hot shower after a day of intense physical exertion!
