7 Day Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu
Day 1 - Arrival in Lima, Peru
Welcome to Peru! Today is a transit day, and after a long flight you're probably looking forward to a nice meal and some relaxation. The Costa del Sol hotel is located right across the street from the airport and is the best choice for travelers connecting to Cuzco. However, if you arrive to Lima in the early afternoon, you may choose to stay in the district of Miraflores. In this case, a representative will meet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel.
Day 2 - Lima to the Sacred Valley
In the morning, you will just need to walk back across the street to check in for your flight to Cuzco. Your guide will meet you when you arrive to bring you through spectacular scenery to your hotel in the Sacred Valley. On the way, you will visit the town of Pisac and the Inca ruins in perched on the hillside above the valley. Relax in the peaceful surroundings of your country hotel and enjoy the property’s gardens and facilities as you settle in and acclimatize to the altitude.
Day 3 - Private Sacred Valley Tour
The Sacred Valley is a land lost in time. This agricultural region once fed the Inca Empire, and today families farm using ancient techniques. In private transport your guide will take you into this mountain-ringed valley to visit Moray, a circular terraced agricultural site, and the Salinas salt pans. In the afternoon, you'll explore Ollantaytambo with its massive ruins and charming town before returning to your hotel in the Sacred Valley.
Day 4 - Private Machu Picchu Tour
This morning we will bring you to the Ollantaytambo train station for your train to Aguas Calientes. On arrival, take a short bus ride to the gates of Machu Picchu. Uncover the secrets of Machu Picchu during a guided tour of this Incan citadel. You’ll visit the most important parts of the ruins to learn how and why they were constructed. After the tour, you’ll have time to further explore the ruins or sit back and enjoy the magic of Machu Picchu. Spend the evening at your exclusive hotel, enjoying the stunning views.
Day 5 - Revisit Machu Picchu
Today you’ll return to Machu Picchu to explore its far reaches. The more energetic members of the group can also hike to the top of Huayna Picchu for a bird’s eye view of the ruins. The steep path takes about an hour and a half to ascend. In the afternoon descend to Aguas Calientes to return to Ollantaytambo on the Vistadome train. We will meet you at the station and bring you back to your hotel in Cuzco by private car.
Day 6 - Private Half Day Cuzco City Tour
During your tour of Cuzco, the capital of the Incan Empire, you’ll visit Sacsayhuaman, an immense Incan complex with impressive stonework; Koricancha, one of the most important Incan temples (the walls were once actually coated in gold!); and Cuzco’s Cathedral where you’ll learn about the Cuzco School of Art.
Day 7 - International Departure
Enjoy a final morning waking to the Andean sun before meeting your transfer to the Cuzco airport. You’ll fly back to Lima, where you will connect to your international flight home. (Optional recommended excursion) - Depending on the time of your international flight out a private tour of Lima's key sites can be arranged. You will visit the Larco Archaeological Museum, the San Francisco Monastery and its catacombs, Lima's historic colonial squares, and the picturesque waterfront district Miraflores.
Start your exploration in the Sacred Valley. A couple thousand feet lower than the city of Cuzco, this helps with acclimatization. After exploring the Sacred Valley of the Inca, you'll continue to the Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu, before returning to the ancient Inca Capital of Cuzco.
