Ayahuasca is more power than any mushroom or LSD. So I was very scared to try it even though people I respected over the years insisted I should. Finally after about a decade of hearing how mindblowing DMT is (the active hallucinogen) we gave it a shot at Etnikas and boy are we glad we did. Ayahuasca did not just... More

I spent three profound days at Etnika's retreat. If you would like to try for the first time or to continue your work with Ayahuasca, it is a very safe and beautiful place. The staff is very attentive, the shaman and the medicine are powerful. The rooms are cozy, blankets and heaters will keep you warm. There is a hot... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful my experience at Etnikas was. The staff are warm, loving and professional and genuinely care for the well being of their guests throughout the ayahuasca experience, which can be intense and frightening. If you are considering an ayahuasca experience, look no further. I hope to be back in the next 12 months. I... More

This is the absolute highlight of my trip to Peru - it is the most worthwhile thing I have ever done. The staff and shamans are all incredibly warm and helpful guides who radiate love and wisdom. The retreat is beautiful and peaceful and you are kept warm and comfortable at all times. The Ayahusca is intense and at times... More

I will start by saying, yes this expensive and can do something similar for much cheaper. But, when I made my decision I decided I wanted a place where there was not 25 people, there was not added distractions or uncomfortability. My money paid off. The facilities are perfect, the shamans were amazing, the help was incredible and the experience... More

I can't say enough good things about Etnikas and their staff. Ayahuasca is a hugely challenging experience and the staff at Etnikas did everything right in terms of providing a safe, comfortable and suitable environment in which to drink. The shamans I worked with (Javier and Juan) were incredibly good men and I felt so lucky to have them looking... More

This was 1 of the best decisions I made in choosing Etnikas. I was on the 3 day retreat in Cusco. I had the most amazing time there. The staff were so helpful, friendly and reassuring. I dont think I could say enough good things about Etnikas. The location was beautiful and the all the ceremonies were truly wonderful. I... More

I recently did the seven-day retreat. Everything was organised brilliantly from start to finish. The supervision during my time at the retreat was absolutely amazing. Angel was a great spiritual guide and helped me enormously throughout my time there. He really was an inspiration. So too was Christine. Her guided meditations during the walks along the creek and in the... More

Etnikas was incredibly professional taking care of the booking. I felt safe and that my entire wellbeing was taken care of during the ceremonies. They answered and questions and have a very well rounded approach to wellness. The retreat centre is in a beautiful, peaceful location. I did the 7 day option, which included transport and accommodation to Machu Picchu,... More

I had the honour to take part in the Ayuhuasca retreat 20-22 May - that turned out to be a warm and profound experience! I felt very well taken care of during the stay and with all my heart I say THANK YOU! Birgitta Hallqvist, Oslo-Norway
