Description

The options to reach Machu Picchu are endless. So on this occasion I’d like to offer a unique route to this marvelous place, crafted for those who are truly looking for an adventure.

We’ll drive between the dazzling hills that border Cusco and across Chinchero, a typical peruvian town, which keeps much of the Inca architecture and overlooks the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Later, we’ll head to Ollantaytambo. Thereon, we’ll climb the mountain pass Abra Malaga (4,400 m), the starting point of our biking adventure. We’ll descend in the middle of the forest that join with the hot valleys of the Amazon Basin. Also, we’ll bike through enchanting villages, get the chance to observe the local flora and fauna and visit Wamanmarka, a marvelous archaeological site. It is here where we’ll meet a local family, who will teach you about the harvest of coffee and coca, and where we’ll spend the night.

After an exquisite fresh breakfast, our second day will be full of adventures, visiting the Vilcanota River, and the village of Santa Teresa (1,850 m). If we have enough time we can explore the hot springs of Cocalmayo. Then, we’ll reach the hydropower station, and trek towards Aguas Calientes (2,005 m).

Finally, on our last day, we’ll drive towards our crown jewel, Machu Picchu, where our guide will explain everything about the life in the citadel, along with its cults and ceremonies. After a 2 hours guided tour, you’ll get the rest of the afternoon free to explore this fantastic place. So you can climb Huayna Picchu (must be booked in advanced) or simply take in the breathtaking sceneries. To end our trip we’ll drive to Aguas Calientes, then take our train to Ollantaytambo and then back to Cusco.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity. Request to book this trip, and live an incredible adventure in Peru.
