Cycle out of the plaza and follow a beautiful dirt road alongside the River Urubamba. Vibrant fields of corn, kiwicha and quinoa line your route as cheery farm workers put down their tools to wave as you pass. En-route we enjoy a picnic lunch.
The very fit can cycle all the way back to the hotel, or the support vehicle can take you back at any time to the hotel.
Day 4: Pachamancas, Paddleboards and Salt Pans (B)
Head to the shores of Lake Huaypo with fantastic views across to the snow-capped Urubamba mountains. Prepare your own lunch, Pachamanca, a very traditional Peruvian meal where meat and vegetables are cooked on hot stones in a hole in the ground. You’ll have time to enjoy some fun on the water paddleboarding, before you head to the spectacular Salt pans of Maras and hike along an old mule track, used to carry salt down to the valley. Return to your hotel late afternoon.
Day 5: Hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu (B)
Today is the day you reach Machu Picchu. Built over 500 years ago, this is one of new Seven Wonders of the World. Take an early train to start your hike along the Inca Trail. A few hours climbing brings you to the beautiful Inca terraces of Wiñay Wayna where you enjoy a box lunch. A further gentle two hours, a final set of steps, you pass through the old Incan gateway, turn to your left and there it is. Machu Picchu unfolds before your eyes.
Tonight, you spend the night in the town below, perhaps enjoy the medicinal waters of the hot springs, but above all dream about tomorrow and your chance to explore fully the ruins of Machu Picchu.
Day 6: Machu Picchu- Stones, Sacrifices and Spectacled Bears (B,D)
Revisit Machu Picchu with your guide today. From altars used for human sacrifices, temples carved in the shape of condors through to stones used to tie the sun, this is a history lesson everyone will enjoy. After a fantastic day, board the train to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery on your journey to Cusco to your hotel.
Day 7: Sacsayhuaman, Tunnels and Chocolate Making (B,D)
Visit the old Inca hilltop fortress of Sacsayhuaman today with a spectacular view of Cusco. There is an impressive system of tunnels to explore. Walk back down to Cusco where you are free to relax and enjoy some lunch.
