A combination of visiting various archeological sites and passing through the beauty of the Sacred Valley before exploring the most famous archeological complex of Machu Picchu.

01 DAY
In the morning we pick you up at your hotel and transfer you to Maras, where we start walking through the little town, which has a beautyfull colonial architecture which you can see at the nice carved wooden doors in its main street. In nearby Moray you find a natural green house ¨the inca laboratory¨. A huge area of agricultural terrasses with a complex irrigation system, located at 3,450 m.The circles were used for the development of different strains of crops. Between the highest and lowest terraces there is a difference of up to 15 degrees. Although the difference between neighboring terraces is very small, it is great enough to create distinct microclimates that change growing conditions and allow the propagation of a huge variety of plants each with slightly different growth requirements. It is also thought it has a cosmological meaning.   

After this very atmospheric place we walk down to the salt pans of Salineras. Here, more than 5000 terraces are still in production and many families of Maras bring their salt to the market of Urubamba on mules and other various markets of the region. You guide will explain you all about the process which is carried out by the workers to earn the salt. A short but rather steep walk (approximately 40 minutes) brings you to Tarabamba in the Sacred Valley where you take a car to Ollantaytambo. In Ollantaytambo you take the afternoon train to Aguas Calientes.

02 DAY
It is an early start for you to take t bus to reach the sanctuary of Machu Picchu when the sun is rising. You will have a guided tour through the amazing site of Machu Picchu where your guide will explain about the most important sites within the ruins.The tour will last about approx. 2 hours in this major Inca-site and then you have free time to explore the ruins yourself. If you like to climp Hayna Picchu (the mountain within the site of Machu Picchu, from where you have an amazing view over the site) please let us know at the time of your booking, as we need to obtain a permit for your climb.The climb will take about45 min…. one way. You can do the climb after your guided tour. Afterwards you can take the bus down to Aguas Calientes where can enjoy a dip in the nearby hot springs and lunch (not included). In the afternoon you take a train back to Cusco. Please ensure you are 20 minutes before departure time at the train station in order to board your train.
