What to expect?

Itinerary

Stop At: Inca Jungle, Cusco, Cusco Region

  • After a 6:00 am pickup, you'll take a 3-hour ride into the mountains, arriving at Malaga Pass, where will start our descent on mountain bikes, descending for about 3 hours, as we pass through small villages, orchards, rivers, and streams, eventually reaching the town of Huamanmarca. After lunch and a short break, we will begin the rafting trip encountering class III and IV rapids while accompanied by a professional safety professional.

Stop At: Inca Jungle, Cusco, Cusco Region

  • The first couple hours of this day will be spent hiking up a fairly steep grade, but there will be many stops in order to learn a bit more about the rich variety of flora and fauna that can be found in the region we are in. One of these stops will be a family house where we will rest for 20 minutes and supply ourselves with more water and some regional tropical fruit.

  • Afterward, we will descend to the small town of Quellomayo where we will stop to eat lunch and rest in the nearby hammocks. We then continue for 2 more hours of walking, eventually arriving at the hot springs of Cocalmayo, where you will have plenty of time to enjoy the naturally heated water of the baths

Stop At: Inca Jungle, Cusco, Cusco Region

  • After breakfast, we will begin the trekking course to Aguas Calientes at approximately 7 AM. We will walk for 3 hours in the Aobamba Valley until we reach the Intihuatana sector, where we pass to government control post and continue the trek. Lunch will be included along the path and we will have the opportunity to see a series of waterfalls and admire the majesty of the surrounding mountains Machupicchu and Huayna Picchu. Here you also have the opportunity to see an astronomical sundial used by the Incans, as well as other constructions such as the Incan citadel of Machupicchu. After 3 hours of walking, we will arrive in Aguas Calientes alongside the train tracks that lead to the small town.

Stop At: Machu Picchu

  • This last day starts very early. We will wake up at around 5.00 am have breakfast and then take one of the first buses to Machu Picchu. There are two good reasons to be at the entrance of Machu Picchu very early:

  • It is well worth the effort to get up early as the Inca city is quietest in the early morning and you will have plenty of time to take photos and enjoy the sunrise over Machu Picchu.

  • Our guide will give you a tour around Machu Picchu telling you about the history of Machu Picchu and the most important temples and altars. Of course, he will also take you to the classical viewpoint (sacred Rock Hut), this vantage point offers a terrific view of the whole Incan city. After that, if you still have plenty of energy you should climb Huayna Picchu Mountain. This is the steep mountain dominating the background of Machu Picchu. From the top of Waynapichu, you have an absolutely stunning and breathtaking view of the complete Machupicchu area. It takes 1 hour to climb Waynapichu and 1 to 1 ½ hour (depending on if you want to make a detour to the great cavern) to return down. Once you feel that you have seen every corner of Machupicchu you will take a bus down to the village of Aguas Calientes to have lunch.

  • Usually we hike back down to Aguas Calientes around 1:00 pm. if you go down early enough, you can have lunch (it is not included but it can be added up to the package), visit the hot springs in town, go to a museum, or shop at the artisan market. We will take our train ride at 18:20 PM to Ollantaytambo. A private bus will pick up our group and drop you off at your hotel in Cusco at about 10:00 PM.
