Depending on your time of arrival, we have plenty of suggestions for you to make the most of your first day in the city. We’ll hand you your travel kit and have a short briefing to answer any last-minute questions.

Day 2: Lima Huariques & Bike Tour

If you wish to discover the new and traditional flavors from the local picturesque Lima neighborhoods, this is the adventure for you! We start in Barranco, where we’ll enjoy the spectacular views of the Bay of Lima as we ride our bikes. On route, you will try delicious seafood tapas, and causa Limeña, one of the most popular Peruvian dishes. We continue our adventure with a Lomo Saltado, and with delicious picarones, a traditional dessert. Finally, some refreshing craft beers will be waiting for us before starting our journey back to our hotel.

Day 3: Flight to Cusco & Farm Lunch at Sarapampa in the Sacred Valley

Flight to the city of Cusco and head towards the Sacred Valley Incas. We’ll have some exciting stops on route to enjoy this very scenic journey to its fullest. First, we’ll stop at Sarapampa, a beautiful country manor that has been farming some of the best corn in Cusco for over three generations. Our host will welcome and show you around the hacienda before settling in for a delicious meal. Then, we’ll visit the Pisac traditional market to appreciate many local customs and regional products, before heading to your charming countryside hotel.

Day 4: Ollantaytambo Fortress & Andean Pachamanca

Start your day visiting Ollantaytambo, a charming village that has not changed much since Inca times. This town is famous due to the Ollantantaytambo archaeological site, a place with impressive Inca stonework only seconded by Machu Picchu. For lunch, enjoy a traditional Peruvian food called Pachamanca. Pachamanca, which in Quechua means Earth Pot, is a traditional cooking technique that has the food prepared underground using preheated stones and leaves to separate ingredients from the soil. The main components are tubers, beef, or lamb, and aromatic Andean Herbs for flavor. Finally, we’ll return to our charming hotel in Urubamba to spend the night.

Day 5: Andean Ceremony at Viacha Community & Glamping experience

The community of Viacha is your destination for today, where your hosts will greet you with open arms. After lunch, we will spend the afternoon with our host family and learn about their traditions and customs. Continuing your honeymoon in Peru, take part in an Andean ceremony. In Peru and especially in the Andes, the marital union between two individuals is a significant celebration in which nature plays an important role. The service performed by an Andean priest is a way of gratitude to Mother Earth that will bring prosperity and happiness to the couple. By night, enjoy your glamping in this beautiful setting.

Day 6: Hike to Pisac Archaeological Site

Time to say goodbye to your new friends and start an easy 2 hours downhill hike to the archaeological site of Pisac. Together with your guide, you’ll explore this fascinating archaeological complex. You’ll enter the site in the highest section and start descending through the agricultural terraces, all the way to the Pisac market. Once in the town, you’ll have some free time to explore its renowned market, full of different products, such as artisanal handcrafts or fresh produce. This market is a must-see in the valley.

Day 7: The Lost City of Machu Picchu

Board the train to Aguas Calientes from the Ollantaytambo station. Once at Aguas Calientes, we’ll drop off our luggage at our hotel and head up to Machu Picchu. We take a 30-minutes bus up the steep zigzagging road to Machu Picchu Citadel, located on an impressive mountain setting. The afternoon is a great time to take the guided tour around the main areas of the citadel, as many travelers are leaving the site at this point. We will explore the ancient city of Machu Picchu for about 3 hours. Finally, we will return to the Aguas Calientes town to spend the night in a nice hotel.

Day 8: Train back to Ollantaytambo & Transfer to Cusco

We prepare to make our way to Cusco, the old Inca Capital. Today, we’ll be traveling aboard the Vistadome train that offers not only panoramic windows but a fashion show onboard featuring the exclusive baby alpaca wool collection. Our private transport will be ready to take you to Cusco as soon as you arrive. Cusco is one of our favorite cities in Peru, and we will be more than happy to present you with plenty of recommendations.

Day 9: Vinicunca, the Rainbow Mountain

Head south for about two and a half hours towards the starting point of today’s adventure. This high-altitude hike begins at about 4,500 m (14764 ft) and reaches its highest at the top of Vinicunca at around 5,200 m (17060 ft). Whoever prefers to, can hire a horse from the local community to make it easier. Although it’s not an easy adventure, the astonishing landscape with the vibrant colors of the Andes Mountain Range makes this journey well worth the effort.

Day 10: Culinary Class in Seledonia’s Mesa

Enjoy Cusco from chef Seledonia’s view! Discover the variety of local products at Cusco’s San Pedro Market, taste exotic Peruvian fruits, and meet Seledonia, our friend, and chef.

This area of Peru’s coastline is blessed with beautiful beaches and sun all year round.

Wake up in your beachfront lodge and enjoy the entire day free.
