Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado
A Sacred Journey
Settle onto a blanket beside the flowing Urubamba River and let the spirits take over. The hotel's signature spiritual Andean ceremony, led by a local shaman, is an unforgettable experience that aims to connect guests to nature—and, in many cases, help them re-connect with themselves as well. Through chanting, the offering of fruits and coca leaves, and other time-honed rituals, the shaman will offer thanks to Pachamama (aka Mother Earth), and ask her for her blessings. For those who are open to this spiritual ritual, it's a rejuvenating, centering experience that honors the heart of the Sacred Valley.
