Enjoy a good night sleep in our 4 season igloo waterproof, spacious and professional EUREKA tent. All our tents are 4 person tents. ONLY 2 people will sleep in each, leaving lots of room to spread out comfortably and store your duffel bag. They also include a little vestibule in front, giving you some extra outdoor space to leave your boots and walking poles so you don’t have to bring the dirt inside.
Comfortable foam mattresses are included to separate and insulate you from the ground. We are proud to be the only company providing comfortable foam mattresses for FREE to all of our clients.
Our Thermarest Air Mattresses can be rented to add additional comfort!
The dining tent is used as our room to get together during meals or tea time; and it gives us a chance to sit down, relax and chat before and after our meals.
The interior of the dining room includes tables and chairs. The tent has two doors on each side, which will be adapted according to the day’s conditions (sunny days, windy days and rainy days).
We use late model vehicles for reliability and safety. Our drivers are fully licenced and very professional.
This has been very much appreciated by most of our clients, especially by our female trekkers, who want a private, clean and sanitary toilet! SAM Travel Peru toilet facilities have an individual tent and a “camping toilet with a seat.” Check out the picture below which illustrates how we set up our camping toilet on the trek. Our toilet is always set up a comfortable distance from our campsite. At night if you need to use the toilet it is readily accessible and clean, unlike the facilities supplied by the government which can be dirty.
We protect our environment by using Responsible and Sustainable facilities. We make a hole 30 cm deep under the seat and the waste goes right in. At the end of our stay we will fill it in without creating any contamination to the environment, SAM Travel Peru will NOT use any chemicals which can contaminate the environment. We do NOT put the waste into plastics or biodegradable plastics, because they are still distructive to our environment and we really care about protecting our earth.
We protect our crew with our toilet procedures. They will not have to touch the waste because it is in the hole. We really care about protecting our team (guides, porters, cook) Our TEAM is what really makes SAM Travel Peru stand out from all of the other competitors.
TIPS: Please always take your own toilet paper with you and put it into the plastic bag provided!
We provide the following items to our porters and cooks for free: Jacket, sun hat, warm hat, t-shirt, pants, hiking boots, conmfortable duffle bags, canteen, girdle for protecting their spine, sleeping bags, mattress and insurance.
