Itinerary

Day 01: Cusco

ou will be met at the airport and transferred to the hotel. There are no activities planned, so that you can arrive at any time. You are free to unwind at the hotel or amble around the town of Cusco, the part of Cusco where the hotel is situated. Some of Cusco’s finest galleries, museums, shops and restaurants are around here. If you have time we recommend the Museo Inca.

Day 02: Sacred Valley Tour

You will be driven to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The Sacred Valley provided the Inca culture with large amounts of food agriculturally and includes various Inca remnants. The valley has been formed by the Urubamba River also known as the Vilcanota River and it goes through Pisac and Ollanaytambo up to the ancient natural sanctuary of Machu Picchu. The Sacred Valley is a lush agricultural region that keeps supplying the Cusco City with lots of its production. We are taken to the impressive Inca site of Pisac, an archaeological complex situated on the hillside high above the town, with amazing vistas of frost-topped mountains. This place has fascinating agricultural terracing carved into the mountainside. Uphill are well-kept temples, including a Solar Clock or Intiwatana which are magnificent designs.

Afterwards we continue to Ollantaytambo, a little town brimming with native atmosphere and occupied since Inca times, we stop at the principle templethat was used as an Incan fortress during the Incas resistance. Beautiful views for some awesome photos.

In the afternoon we return to Cusco, but before we stop in Chinchero, we view the beautiful landscapes and the small colonial church. We will be taken to the hotel. Overnight stay in Cusco.

Day 03: Inti Raymi Festival

Today we will be participating in the celebration of the Inti Raymi, the Inca Festival of the Sun, celebrated each year during the winter solstice. An authentic celebration that dates back from the Inca times to worship Apu Inti Tayta the Sun God. This is the most important Inca festival and Cusco will be filled with parades and processions.

First we go to the temple of the Sun “Qoricancha”, where the Inca will begin the celebration and then follow to the Sacsayhuaman archaeological site, where we have excellent reserved seats to watch the ceremony and spectacular festival. Tonight we have our farewell dinner in one of Cusco’s finest restaurants.

Afterwards, you continue through a mixture of cacti vegetation and a cloud forest towards another Incan significant site – Wiñay Wayna. But before we reach it, we enjoy a refresh in a local waterfall! Later on, you can admire the sunset above Machu Picchu when we get to the Sun´s Gate (Inti Punku) before entering the Inka citadel. However, today is too late to have a guided tour of this overwhelming Incan city so we descend slowly to Aguas Calientes Town enjoying beautiful surrounding scenery on the way! We spend the night in a comfortable hotel in Aguas Calientes.
