Rural Tourism - Weaving workshop in Ollantaytambo - Half day - Group service

Don't miss out on this magical opportunity to experience a different way of life!  The alpine scenery and mountainous terrain are simply exquisite but what makes the tour really special is visiting the Patacancha and Huilloc communities, known for their traditional cultural practices. 

This tour gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in traditional Andean culture by taking part in a weaving workshop.

During the scheduled, respectful and low-impact Quechua community visits, we hope to educate the responsible traveler about the ancient weaving tradition and Andean indigenous culture.

    What's excluded :
    • Transportation to Ollantaytambo from other cities, such as Urubamba or Cusco

  • Travel from Ollantaytambo for a beautiful drive through the Patacancha Valley, lined with Inca terracing, waterfalls and traditional Andean farming practices. What makes the tour really special is visiting the Patacancha and Huilloc communities, known for their traditional cultural practices. Upon arriving to Patacancha, you will be given time to explore the quaint village and visit to the Awamaki Weaving Center, where you will get a demonstration of the weaving process, from shearing the wool from the alpaca or sheep, spinning it into yarn on the Andean drop spindle, an explanation of the natural plant dyes, and finally the tools and techniques used to weave the yarn into cloth, and then a wearable garment. During the scheduled, respectful and low-impact Quechua community visits, we hope to educate the responsible traveler about the ancient weaving tradition and Andean indigenous culture. After the demonstration, you will get the chance to try weaving yourself. You will then be invited into the weaver's home to enjoy a lovingly prepared home-cooked meal before returning to Ollantaytambo.
