Itinerary

Our expedition begins at 7:30 a.m. we will pick you up from your hotel, in the city of Cusco in our private vehicle. We will then travel to the SANCTUARY OF COCHAWASI, a refuge for animals rescued from traffickers in our area.

In the sanctuary, we will learn about and grow an appreciation for a large variety of the Andean fauna.

We will see many llamas and alpacas, as well as some animals rescued after natural disasters, such as pumas and the spectacled bear (a species that is only found in Peru).

We will even appreciate a family of condors. The sanctuary is managed by Peruvian and foreign volunteers.

After visiting the sanctuary we will travel to the viewing point of TARAY. Here we will have a panoramic view of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and at the same time observe a large portion of the Andes mountain range complete with its majestic snow-capped mountains.

After ample time for photographs, we will continue to the town of LAMAY. Here you will witness the unique cooking techniques used to prepare an Andean delicacy enjoyed for centuries here in Cusco, the guinea pig.

If you wish you can taste this emblematic and exclusive Peruvian dish. Our car tour will end in the town of OLLANTAYTAMBO, where we will have a brief time to explore this small town known for keeping many Incan houses from the past intact.

After exploring, we will take the train to our final stop the town of Aguas Calientes.

As we journey by train we will observe the change of ecological zones between the Andes and the high jungle, we will experience a change in the vegetation and the climate as it becomes warmer and more humid as we approach our final station.

Upon reaching the town of Aguas Calientes, you will be taken directly to your hotel. In the evening you will have the opportunity to visit the thermal baths.

Before resting, we will have a meeting with our guide in your hotel to finalize every detail of the most important day of your trip, your visit to Machu Picchu.

Today we will not only arrive at one of the seven wonders of the modern world, but we will do it very early to enjoy the sunrise.

Our day will start  taking one of the first buses to the site. The bus will take us on a twenty-five minute trip from Aguas Calientes to the control entry gate of Machu Picchu.

After passing the control, we will have a two-hour guided tour of the archeological site where you will learn about the most important constructions and temples of the citadel, both in the agricultural area and in the urban area.

At the end of our guided tour, you will have free time to explore Machu Picchu on your own. You will have the opportunity to return to the aforementioned areas you visited on the tour or do one of the different hikes that leave from the citadel.

The less strenuous options are the Sun Gate (Puerta del Sol, Inti Punku) or the Inca bridge. You also have the option of doing one of the more physically challenging hikes of Mt. HUAYNA PICCHU MOUNTAIN OR THE MACHU PICCHU MOUNTAIN.

The entrance to one of the mountains is included in the package (both are subject to availability). If you desire to hike one of the mountains please, consult us at the moment of making the reservation.

After enjoying your visit we will return by bus to the town of Aguas Calientes, where the train station is located. The two-hour train ride will take us from Aguas Calientes to the Ollantaytambo station.
