Description

Choose the most incredible route to Machu Picchu. Join me on this 4 day multi sport adventure departing from Cusco.

Our adventure begins driving to Chinchero, a village which still has Inca ruins, and forms part of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Then, we’ll follow the Vilcanota river until we reach Ollantaytambo, from where we’ll climb  Abra Malaga (4,350 m). Here, weather permitting, our mountain biking adventure begins amongst the jungle towards Carrizales. Then, we’ll visit the Wamanmarka archaeological site. Later, we’ll meet a local family in the town of Maranura, who will teach us about the harvesting of coca and coffee. Furthermore, there’s the option of a quadbike tour to an area with mesmerizing cascades.

On our second day, we’ll trek along the Vilcanota River and following ancient Inca trails. We’ll also visit the village of Quellomayo, where we may spot hummingbirds, parrots and eagles, and pick local fruits including pacay, mandarins, mangos, coffee and cacao. The trek will take us to the hot springs of Cocalmayo. Then, we’ll get to Santa Teresa for dinner and to spend the night.

Next day, we’ll zip line across mesmerizing sceneries for about 3 hours. Thereupon, a bus will take us to the Hidroelectrical station, to later trek along the Urubamba river towards Aguas Calientes. Here, we’ll get a well deserved break in the hot tubs of Aguas Calientes.

After breakfast, we’ll depart early in the morning to Machu Picchu. Our drive will be blessed with the most breathtaking sunrise with Machu Picchu on the background. Upon arrival, a local guide will teach you everything about this wonderful place, after which you’ll have free time to explore it on your own. Then we’ll head back to Aguas Calientes, Ollantaytambo and finally Cusco.

Don’t miss this amazing opportunity. Send me a request and live a unique adventure in Peru.

I also guide a shorter 3-days jungle tour version of this trip.
