Cuzco

Bienvenidos a Peru! Upon arrival at Cuzco airport you’ll be met & transferred to your hotel. The rest of the day is free to explore this charming city which is easily navigated on foot. The Plaza de Armas & the Catedral de Santo Domingo sit at the heart of Cuzco’s cultural centre. The modern square is a bustling tourist hub, with bars, restaurants & shops flanking the northern & western sides of the squares, offering a distinctly European vibe. Tonight at 6pm our welcome meeting takes place. Please note: You may wish to arrive a day or two earlier in order to adjust to the altitude. Pre tour accommodation can be booked upon request.

Sacred Valley

Cuzco - Sacred Valley. Today we set off on our journey to the Sacred Valley. We stop at the Pisac market, a colourful marketplace filled with handicrafts, textiles & produce. There's time to shop for souvenirs before we head to the remarkable Incan fortress & the citadel of Ollantaytambo with its giant Inca terraces built into a steep mountainside. The fortress was constructed to guard the entrance to this part of the valley & protect it from possible invasions of tribes from the jungle lowlands.

The Inca Trail

Sacred Valley – Km. 82 – Huayllabamba – Pacaymayo - Winaywayna. On day 3 the real fun begins as we embark on the four day Inca Trail trek through spectacular mountain scenery, dense sub-tropical jungle & misty cloud forest, taking in Inca ruins en route. The day starts with the whole group being taken from the hotel to Km. 82 where we’ll meet our trekking guide & porters. We’ll then begin the Inca Trail trek, walking along the Urubamba River with spectacular snow-capped mountains as our backdrop. From the Urubamba Valley we’ll head towards the Kusichaca River & set up camp in Huayllabamba, where we can rest our weary feet after our 11km trek.

The next day is the most challenging as we hike to Warmihuanusca Pass, which translates as 'Dead Woman's Pass' & is the highest pass on the trail at 4200m. We hike for approximately 7km, part of which will lead us to the top of the pass, where we’ll be able to see the path that leads to the Runkurakay ruins. We camp for the night in Pacaymayo, located at 3,600m above sea level.

On day 5 we continue along our route, heading first to the Runkurakay circular ruins. After looking around we’ll make our way through forest & jungle until we get to the Sayacmarca ruins. From there we continue our journey across the Lago Seco & ‘The Tunnel’, a natural cavity, which occurred during a landslide. Eventually we’ll arrive at the Phuyupatamarca ruins, our final cultural stop for the day. Once we are done here we will proceed to Winaywayna for the night after 9km of walking.

Note:If the Inca Trail is not available we offer the Lares Trek & if you prefer not to trek at all, you can opt to take the train to Machu Picchu on day 3 & enjoy extra time in Cuzco on days 4 - 6 with some additional included excursions. Breakfasts included only. Please refer to the Trip Notes or further information.

{tab Day 6}

Machu Picchu

Winaywayna – Machu Picchu – Cuzco. Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for – we finally get to see the world famous Machu Picchu. But, before we get to the main destination, we’ll stop off at the Winay Wayna ruins, the second most important archaeological site after Machu Picchu. After this, we cross our final pass – Inti Punku (the Gate of the Sun) – which leads us to the lost city of Machu Picchu.

Situated on a mountain ridge above the Urubamba River & surrounded by tropical forest, the Inca city enjoys a truly spectacular setting. Built in the classical Inca style with polished dry-stone walls & terraces that seem to have been crafted naturally from the rock escarpments, Machu Picchu is a spectacular testament to the greatness of the Inca civilisation. The ruins are divided into the Urban & Agricultural Sectors with features ranging from terraced fields & water fountains to storage buildings, guardhouses & religious temples as well as bridges on the trails leading out of the citadel. After a guided tour there's plenty of free time to explore this mystical, ancient citadel before we head down to the town of Aguas Calientes. In the afternoon we’ll take the train back to Cuzco.
