Itinerary

Met upon arrival in Cusco and be
driven to the village of Chinchero, renowned
for the high quality textiles. Wander the market and
see the techniques used to create the beautiful
shawls and ponchos.

Morning tour to the famous Pisaq market
and nearby ruins, set high above a valley rimmed by
vast terracing. The citadel is magnificent and in the
main ruins we will find temples of the sun, moon,
rain, rainbow, and stars. Lunch will be with a local
family in Urubamba where we sample a delicious
Andean soup. Afternoon visit Ollantaytambo to
see the Temple of the Sun, formed with six gigantic
monoliths.

Visit Moray, the surprising circular terraces
hidden among the hills. Learn the fascinating history
of how the Incas used the slightly different climate
on each level to maximise the crops. Walk through
the valley to the salt mines of Maras.(B,L)

See a different side of the valley on a hike with
llamas through pristine landscapes to the remains of
Inkarakai, formerly a retreat for the Virgins of the Sun.
Enjoy a picnic in the beautiful setting and end the day
at nearby waterfalls. (B,L)

Indulge in a private guided tour of the site and then

Aguas Calientes to take the late afternoon train to
Cusco and on to the hotel. (B)

Sun. Walk along Hatunrumiyoc Street to see the

Roca’s Palace. Visit San Blas quarter with its steeped
cobblestone alleys lined with workshops and galleries,
