Day 2 Fly Cusco - Afternoon Walking Tour

An early morning flight brings you to the Inca capital of Cusco. After settling into your hotel, you can tour Cusco's largest open market and the adjacent witches' market, where natural medicines and charms for curing heartache and other afflictions are sold. Travelers will also have the opportunity to visit the Center for Traditional Textiles in Cusco, a local organization committed to preserving the region's weaving traditions. Watch weavers demonstrate their craft and learn about the history and processes of Peru's most well-known art form. The evening is yours to take in some of Cusco's varied and exciting nightlife.

Day 3 Rafting on the Upper Urubamba River

Drive past terraced fields of corn, potatoes, and quinoa as you travel to the Vilcanota section of the Upper Urubamba River. After your safety briefing, you’ll put in on the Urubamba River, which winds from the snowcapped Andes to the Amazon jungle. The Vilcanota section offers challenging class III-IV rapids between the months of January and April and exciting class IV-V from April to November. For those looking for less extreme Peru adventures, other stretches of the river offer class II-III rapids year around. After your raft trip, enjoy a picnic lunch along the riverbank. This afternoon, return to Cusco, where you can explore the monasteries, cathedrals and Incan ruins of Cusco on your own or with your guide.

Day 4 Mountain Biking Chinchero

Today, rise early for your journey to the village of Chinchero. Chinchero is a town made up by several communities and whose main income comes from textiles and tourism here we can partake in a weaving demonstration, learn about indigenous medicinal plants and see the ancestral way of life of Andean People.  Afterwards, ascend to Allpachaca, at 12,000 feet elevation, to begin your biking tour. You will ride for 3-4 hours, past beautiful Piuray Lake and the local farms and villages until you reach the community of Tauca (12,660 feet). After lunch, get settled into your community campsite where you will be spend the night. In the evening feel free to talk a walk around the community and maybe meet some of the locals.

Day 5 Hiking the Quenua Sundur Valley

After breakfast, begin your horse-assisted trek to the Queñua Sundur Valley. Along the way, visit several archeological sites rarely visited by outsiders including Kinsa Salayo and Huchuy Qosqo. Enjoy sensational views of the Sacred Valley and the Urubamba Mountains with their impressive glaciers. Tonight camp near Huchuy Qosqo, known as "Little Cusco". Your guides will set up camp and make dinner you relax and enjoy the ruins of Huchuy Qosqo. Today's hike totals 8 miles in length.

Day 6 Huchuy Qosqo - Train to Machu Picchu

Rising early, explore the ruins of Huchuy Qosqo with your guide. This "Little Cusco" is inaccessible by public road, making it one of the least visited major ruins in the area. After exploring the ruins, you will hike to Lamay (approximately 3 miles), descending into the Sacred Valley. On the trail to Lamay you will see towering Andean peaks and smaller ruins in the distance. Your driver will be waiting for us at the end of the trail for a last lunch before taking you to the train station in Ollantaytambo.

The train follows the Urubamba River as it tumbles its way towards the Amazon and the sacred city of Machu Picchu. Arrive to Machu Picchu Pueblo (formerly called Aguas Calientes) to relax, enjoy dinner (the trout fillets are delicious), and prepare for your visit to Machu Picchu tomorrow.

Day 7 Visit Machu Picchu Ruins - Return Cusco

Wake early to watch the sunrise over Machu Picchu. Today your guide will begin to unravel the mysteries of this sacred site, explains the care that went into its construction. Though no one knows the full significance of the ruins at Machu Picchu, recent archaeological excavations have uncovered a series of caves that may have been the site for religious ceremonies portraying the Incas’ creation story. These caves suggest that Machu Picchu may have been a “huaca”, or sacred spot, worshiped as a point where man emerged from the ground. This evening, you'll return to Cusco by train.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
