This morning, after breakfast, you will be transported back to the Iquitos Airport for your flights to Lima and Cusco. Upon your arrival in Cusco, your guide will pick you up and you will then transfer to the heart of the Sacred Valley.
Cusco, the ancient capital of the Incas, is a dizzying 11,200 feet altitude above sea-level. Your home base for exploring this incredible area will be in the Sacred Valley, which is approximately 9,000 feet altitude and gives you an easier transition to the altitude.
Upon arrival in the Sacred Valley, you will check-in to one of the most incredible hotels in the whole country, Hacienda Urubamba. This luxury hotel is immersed in the countryside in a gorgeous area. It spans approximately 100 acres surrounded by the world famous Andes mountains.
All of the luxury casitas feature breathtaking views of the valley, immersing guests in open space, serenity and relaxing solitude. Architecture and interiors are inspired on the area’s cultural history, with colonial furniture, authentic Inca masks and handcrafted woodwork that add to the hacienda’s local charm.

The Sacred Valley of the Incas
The Sacred Valley of the Incas is often our guest’s favorite experience on the trip. You will be able to observe llamas and alpacas at the Awanakancha llama reserve, as well as local Andean women making textiles. You will then observe the world famous Pisac artisan market and Pisac archaeological site, high above the Sacred Valley. Following your lunch on the banks of the Urubamba river you will explore Ollantaytambo: the Living Inca City, one of the most stunning sites in all of Peru.
After marveling at the Ollantaytambo archaeological site, you will return to the Hacienda Urubamba for an evening of relaxation, stunning views, and maybe even one of the included hotel excursions like stargazing, where you can learn of Incan astronomy.
