Itinerary

Day 1 : Cusco - Abra Malaga - Santa Maria - Santa Teresa

Pick up time is 6:00 a.m. 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 masl) (14 160 ft), the starting point of our biking tour. After a short explanation to help orientate you, your guide will provide you with the necessary equipment for the activity. We will the 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 tropical climate. During the journey there will be several stops 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 we have the option of rafting on the Vilcanota River (US $ 35 ). This river offers category III and III + rapids. For this activity we will give you helmets, windbreaks 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 Teresa - Hidroelectrica - Aguas Calientes

On day two 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 archeological 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 3: Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Ollantaytambo - Cusco

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 (US $ 12). Once inside the archaeological site, you will have a two-hour guided tour inside 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 (2,800 meters)(9,186.35 ft.) or Machu Picchu mountain (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 energies of this great wonder. You will have enough time to explore Machu Picchu on your own, because then the guards will ask you to leave. In the afternoon, according to the departure of the train ticket, you will descend walking on your own to the town of Aguas Calientes to get the train back to Ollantaytambo where the group will be picked up and transferred to Cusco city.
