EXPERIENCE

Explore the Sacred Valley of the Incas on a guided tour from Cusco. Visit the town of Chinchero, the circular agricultural terraces of Moray, and the Maras Salt Mines. Enjoy a buffet lunch in Urubamba and end the tour in Ollantaytambo.

Start the day with a hotel pick-up from Cusco and head to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Admire the diverse crop fields and picturesque towns that contrast with the snowy mountains and sacred mountains that have been venerated since before the Incas.

Visit the town of Chinchero, located at 3,772 meters above sea level. Explore the town’s archaeological sites, a 17th-century colonial church with canvases from the Cusqueña School, and a typical market where you can still exchange. Focus on traditional weaving handmade by pure Andean women.

Next, visit the circular agricultural terraces of Moray, an experimental agricultural center. Continue to the Maras Salt Mines, which contain more than 4,000 wells from which one of the best salts in the world is extracted.

Head to Urubamba to enjoy a buffet lunch in a typical restaurant in the area. Taste typical flavors of the region before continuing to the living Inca city of Ollantaytambo. Admire its military fortress, which was built to protect the Sacred Valley from possible invaders.

End the tour at 3:30 PM when your transportation leaves you near the Ollantaytambo train station.
