Day 4. CUZCO - SACRED VALLEY - PISAC RUINS HIKE - OLLANTAYTAMBO (B & L)

After breakfast, a private full-day excursion to Urubamba, the sacred valley of the Incas and to the ancient Inca market town of Pisac, founded during colonial times, and set at the foot of a hill crowned by the remains of an ancient Inca city. On Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, Indians barter their products in the main square and artisans from around the area sell their woven alpaca wool blankets and ponchos, engraved gourds, antique reproductions, jewellery, etc. On Sundays, it is also the meeting place for Mayors from all the villages in the region, dressed in their traditional costumes to attend morning mass. At Pisaq we will hike directly up to the ruins at the top of the town. Your private vehicle will meet you at the top where you will transfer down into the valley for lunch in Urubamba. A visit will be made to Ollantaytambo where you can hike up to the very top as the ruins were built up a mountainside. This is the only Inca town that was not defeated by the Spanish and a chance to explore the ruins before heading to the Sol y Luna Lodge and Spa in your own bungalow. Relax and enjoy the environs of the lodge.

Day 5. HUCHUY QOSQO HIKE (B & L)

After breakfast a private transfer to the town of Lamay. Arrival and begin your hike to the fascinating site where the Inca chief Viracocha lived. Walk over the bridge in Lamay and continue on the path behind the houses. You can easily see the path climbing up the hill and you might even see some part of the ruins high above you. This is an advanced hike. It will take about two and a half hours to reach the ruins and from there you will have a wonderful view into the Urubamba valley, and of the villages of Lamay and Calca. The mummy that was found here is said to be Viracocha. The ruins are part stone and part adobe and of special interest is the presence of horizontal wooden braces inside the corners of some of the buildings. There is a fine 'kallanka', great hall, some 40m long, a great esplanade, where were held parades, and lots of terraces. Some of the houses are ‘post-inca’ , but in inca-style, and there is a Spanish-style reservoir. Going down to Calca will take about three hours. The path starts behind the reservoir, where you will have to cross a small stream. In the valley behind you can continue on this small path to Calca. Arrive to Calca, and private transfer to the Pakritampu Hotel in the town of Urubamba.
Free evening.

Meals: B & L

Day 6. ROYAL INCA TRAIL TO MACHU PICCHU (B, L & D)

Early wake up and breakfast in order to catch the train headed to Machu Picchu. We will ride aboard the Vistadome train, taking in stunning views of the mountains all around, with snowcapped peaks in the distance as we slowly lose elevation and head into high altitude cloud forest. Our destination, the Machu Picchu gateway town of Aguas Calientes, is reachable only by train or air and is nestled among stunning steep mountains shrouded in cloud forest.
Start of the Royal Inca trail, for which we will depart the train before reaching Aguas Calientes. We will commence our hike by crossing a hanging bridge over the Urubamba River to approach the small but interesting Inca archaeological complex of Cachabamba. After a brief visit of this site we will begin a four hour ascent to the ruins of Wiñay Wayna 2700m/8829 ft; an important Inca spiritual site, and one of the finest of all Inca ruins. At this point the trail joins with the main Inca Trail. From here we will be walking on Inca pavement. The Inca Trail cuts across the ridge above Machu Picchu to finally reach Intipunku or Gate of the Sun, at 2700m/8829 ft. From here the trail winds downhill (45 minutes) into the lost citadel of Machu Picchu, at 2400m/7872. Arrival to Machu Picchu and accommodation at the 4* Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel. This hotel is beautiful as it has many unique features including fireplaces in most rooms, a spa, an orchid garden and eco center, 2 restaurants, a eucalyptus sauna, mini tours of a twilight walk, tea house ceremonies, spectacled bears, orchid walk, hummingbird tour, nature walk, and it sits back in the cloud forest, but is conveniently located within walking distance from the town.

Day 7. MACHU PICCHU (B, L & D)

A full day's private guided tour of Machu Picchu, the most spectacular ancient city in the world. Built by the Inca Pachacutec, and comprising stone blocks fitted with masterful precision, Machu Picchu harmoniously blends into the mountain landscape. There are many theories as to the origins behind Machu Picchu but three of the most popular ideas include a temple to the sun, a fortress against the jungle inhabitants or a sanctuary for the Incas. This fabulous city has houses, temples, warehouses, a large central square, all connected by narrow roads and steps, and is surrounded by terraces cut into the mountain side which were used for agriculture. After the tour, free time to enjoy this magical and spiritual wonder. Lunch, Dinner, and Accommodation at the Sanctuary Lodge Hotel in a room with a view, located directly outside the Machu Picchu ruins themselves. Enjoy the tranquil night and the amenities of the hotel.

Sanctuary Lodge Hotel   |  Meals: B, L & D

Day 8. MACHU PICCHU – OLLANTAYTAMBO (B)

Early opportunity to return to the site and enjoy a wonderful sunrise over Machu Picchu. Time for some private reflection before returning for breakfast. Today no guide is provided as we feel that Machu Picchu requires a certain amount of self discovery to be fully understood. Take any of the several paths around various parts of the site (we will provide a map to help you), trek up to Wayna Picchu or walk down to the Inca’s bridge. Let Machu Picchu unfold all its mysteries for you, take in the breathtaking cloud forests and jagged mountains, or marvel at the extraordinary Masonic precision of the ancient Incas. Either way, your day of self discovery will be a day never to be forgotten. Return to your hotel for lunch before returning back down to Aguas Calientes by bus. Some free time to visit the colourful town before boarding the Vistadome train in the early evening for the return train to Ollantaytambo. Transfer to your hotel, the Sol y Luna

Sol y Luna Lodge and Spa   |  Meals: B

Day 9. PASO HORSE RIDING IN THE URUBAMBA (B, L & D)

After breakfast, start of a beautiful horse riding route to Pichingote, Rio Grande and Pumahuanca where you can enjoy the exhilarating ride that only the Peruvian Paso horse can give! We visit out-of-the-way Quechua communities and meet the local people in a natural village setting. We cross the Urubamba River and visit the ancient settlement of Pichingote, a tiny village of 6 families, who claim to be immediate descendants of the original Inca settlers. The village is nestled against a cliff and the houses of the inhabitants are partially built into the rock face. We stop for our picnic-lunch in Pumahuanca, an area protected to preserve its important fauna and flora. The scenery is breathtaking. A relaxing ride for all abilities with no difficult climbs and plenty of time to stop for a refreshing drink or memorable photos. Actual riding time 5-6 hours. Return to your hotel, for dinner and accommodation.

Meals: B, L & D

Day 10. URUBAMBA RIVER RAFTING (B & L)

Day 11. CUSCO – LIMA (B, L)

After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your flight to Lima. Arrive Lima, enjoy a private guided visit of colonial and modern Lima, including the cathedral, dating from 1654, the main square, which still houses the original bronze fountain built in 1650, and the San Francisco Convent and its catacombs. Known as the city of the kings, Lima was founded in 1535 by Pizarro and rebuilt in 1991, the same year that UNESCO declared it a world heritage site. One of the very few South American cities that preserve the colonial past, Lima was home to the Spanish viceroy during the time of the Spanish colonialists. The tour will include a visit to the residential areas of San Isidro and Miraflores, before stopping at Larco Mar to enjoy a view of the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Lunch at the Casa Moreyra.
