    TRAVEL ITINERARY

    Early in the morning, we will pick you up from your hotel to start our journey in our private vehicle towards the Sacred Valley, passing through the typical towns of Chincheros and Ollantaytambo. We will then arrive at Abra Malaga, located at an altitude of 4,230 m / 13,877.953 ft, where we will begin the downhill bike ride for approximately 4 hours. Along the route, we will be able to observe various archaeological sites such as Inkatambo and Huamanmarca, as well as small villages, fruit fields, rivers, and streams. At the appropriate time, we will enjoy our outdoor lunch, and after a short rest, we will continue until we reach the town of Santa Maria, located at an altitude of 1,430 m / 4,691.601 ft. This is where the bike tour ends, and from this point, we will take a bus to Santa Teresa. In this place, we will enjoy dinner and spend the night at a lodge.

From there, you can appreciate the mountains of Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu, as well as a wonderful jungle with great biodiversity, until reaching Hidroelectrica, where we will have a replenishing lunch. We will then continue the hike, this time alongside the train tracks, until we reach the town of Machu Picchu, better known as «Aguas Calientes.» The tour concludes with a delicious dinner, and then we will rest in a cozy accommodation.

    After your visit to Machu Picchu, we will head back to the town of Machu Picchu. In the town, you will find many restaurants where you can choose according to your preference. You will then need to go to the train station and board the train for approximately 2 hours until you reach the Ollantaytambo station.

    Optional:

    • Huayna Picchu: If you want to add Huayna Picchu to your adventure, with its spectacular views, this must be booked in advance and costs an additional $25 per person. It takes 45 minutes to reach the summit and is quite a challenge.
    • Machu Picchu Mountain: Another option is to climb Machu Picchu Mountain, which takes 90 minutes uphill and is very challenging. It costs an additional $15 per person. This is probably the most beautiful and spectacular viewpoint, where you can enjoy breathtaking views.
    • Buffet Lunch: We recommend the MAPI Restaurant ($20.00 additional).
