Itinerary

Day 1:Cusco - Santa Maria (Biking - Rafting)

We will leave the Imperial City of Cusco and head towards the Sacred Valley of the Incas. It is here that we will have our buffet style breakfast.

We will continue on to Abra Málaga (4,350 meters) (14,160 ft), the starting point of our biking tour. After a short explanation to help orient you, your guide will provide you with the necessary equipment for the activity. We will begin our 3-hour, bicycle descent (9 55km) (5.93 miles) until we reach the town of Huamanmarca. During the trip we will experience the beauty of the snow-capped mountains and the tropical forest. It is here in the tropical forest that our Peruvian Amazon adventure begins. We will cross small streams and we will enjoy the change from cold to a tropical climate.

 

 

 

 

During the journey we will stop several times to review bicycles and equipment. We will arrive at the town of Santa María (1 200 masl) (3,937.01 ft.), where we will have our lunch and stay for our first night in a hotel.

 

 

In the afternoon you have the option of rafting on the Vilcanota River. This river offers category III and III + rapids. For this activity we will give you helmets, windbreakers and category V life jackets. This activity is available between the months of April to December, and you must be able to swim to participate in accordance with Peruvian law.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 2:Santa Maria-Santa Teresa (Trekking - Hot Springs)

After a delicious breakfast, we will be ready to make the first day of trekking to Santa Teresa.

 

The first two hours of our tour we will ascend the terrain. On the way we will have several stops to learn a little more about the richness in flora and fauna of the area in which we find ourselves. We will also

 

 

stop at the home of a local family, where we will learn about their customs and traditions.

Later we will cross a section of the Inca Trail that formerly connected the Sacred City of the citadel Machu Picchu to the last Inca refuge, Vilcabamba. Here our guide will explain a little more about the history of the Incas and also the Incan communication system (the route of the Incas).

At this point we have the pleasure of experiencing some of the most impressive views of the Huancarccasa canyon, the majestic Salkantay.

We will then descend to the town of Quellomayo, where we will enjoy a delicious lunch and a relaxing rest in the hammocks of the restaurant.

 

We will continue for two more hours until we arrive at the thermal baths of Cocalmayo, where we will spend a while enjoying this enchanting place. When the whole group is ready, our private transport will take you to the town of Santa Teresa, where we will spend our second night.

Day 3:Santa Teresa - Hydroelectric - Aguas Calientes

On day three we will have the opportunity to do the zip line activity with one of the highly trusted operators in the area. This activity is optional and lasts approximately two hours.

 

We will then have breakfast. After breakfast, we will board our transport to the hydroelectric plant, where the government control is located and the entrance to Machu Picchu National Park (Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary).

At this point we will start our trekking to the town of Aguas Calientes, passing through the area called Intihuatana, a small archaeological site where the guide will share an explanation to better understand the site.

 

Then we will continue to Inka Rakay, where we will enjoy our lunch. During the journey, we will enjoy and contemplate the majesty of the Machu Picchu mountains, Huayna Picchu as well as other agrological sites in the heights of the mountain. We will finish the hike in the town of Aguas Calientes, where we will spend the third night of the tour.

Day 4:Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco (Trekking)

This is the most important day of the tour, today you will visit one of the seven wonders of the world.

The tour will start very early, to appreciate the sunrise in the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu.

Our day will start with the option of hiking or taking the bus.

 

Once inside the archaeological site, you experience a two-hour guided tour of the Inca city of Machu Picchu.  You will see its most important temples, such as the Temple of the Sun, the Temple of the Three Windows, etc.

 

You will then be free to explore Machu Picchu on your own. If you booked in advance, to hike Mt. Huayna Picchu (height: 2,800 meters / 9,186.35 ft.) or Machu Picchu mountain (height: 3 082 meters)(10,111.55 ft.) you will have that opportunity after your guided tour.

 

You must make the reservations to hike either mountain three months in advance for an additional cost of US $ 20. Space is limited to only 400 people a day to climb Mt. Huayna Picchu.

We also recommend allowing time to relax, meditate and rest while taking advantage of the magical and spiritual energy of this great wonder.

After you have finished enjoying Machu Picchu, you will return to Aguas Calientes to take the train back to Ollantaytambo or Cusco.
