Full Day Tour

In the morning, we pick you up from your hotel to take you to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. 

Our first stop will be Pisac, here you can walk through the traditional market, a sea of wooden posts placed at random and very close together. Most of it, is located in the Plaza de Armas of Pisac, but extends to the small streets in the vicinity. We will also visit the archaeological site of Pisac, which is located on the slopes of a mountain. Here the guide will explain everything about this site and will answer any questions you may have.

Then, our next destination is Ollantaytambo, where each stone worked is an independent work of art in relation to the others, with different sides, angles and volumes. The ancient Peruvians, oblivious to our ease and pragmatism, had another concept of time and art. Ollantaytambo is also known, for an Inca plot drama entitled "Ollantay", whose protagonist was General Ollanta, which takes place in this place.

Then, we will make a stop to rest in the picturesque town of Urubamba, and then continue our journey to Moray, a gigantic agricultural laboratory. Nearby we will visit the Salineras de Maras, where we will appreciate the salt extraction process.

Finally, we continue towards the town of Chinchero, to admire the beautiful Temple, a structure that mixes Inca and Hispanic architectural tendencies. We arrived in Cusco at 7 pm approx.

Sacred Valley Cusco Altitude

The Sacred Valley is 2700 meters above sea level and stretches along the Vilcanota River.

The valley is characterized by having very special conditions, such as an excellent climate, very fertile lands and the waters of the sacred river of the Incas, the Vilcanota or Urubamba.

Sacred Valley Cusco Weather

The best months to visit the Sacred Valley are from May to October, months in which the temperature varies from 16 degrees to 20 degrees Celsius, in the warmer months. During the day, the solar brightness is full, the weather is warm and very cool, although at night it feels cold, which is stronger during the month of June, which is no obstacle to enjoy the place.

In the months of May to October, you can go hiking, canoeing in the Urubamba River, ride on an ATV Tour in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, horseback riding, walking on dry trails and have a permanent company of the Urubamba snowcapped, which are presented in this time in its maximum brightness and splendor.

In Cusco and the Sacred Valley, the rainy season begins in November and gradually intensifies, with January, February and March being the most intense months, when it rains from 400 to 500 mm.

However, the rainy season is very peculiar and beautiful, because the fields show their best face and splendor. The whole landscape becomes intensely green, the farms or fields are covered with multicolored flowers, the air is purified by the rains, and you can enjoy products of the time.

Sacred Valley to Cusco Distance

The Sacred Valley is composed of different districts, which differ in distance to Cusco:

  • Cusco - Písac: 35.00 km
  • Cusco - Coya: 41.50 km
  • Cusco - Lamay: 45.50 km
  • Cusco - Calca: 51.70 km
  • Cusco - Yucay: 71.20 km
  • Cusco - Urubamba: 76.20 km
  • Cusco - Yanahuara: 88.60 km
  • Cusco - Ollantaytambo: 94.40 km

Cusco or Sacred Valley first

We recommend you visit the Sacred Valley first, because it offers a more authentic view of the ancient Inca civilization and what they were able to build in places like Pisac, Ollantaytambo, Moray. Its 2,800 meters allow a gradual acclimatization, and omit the headaches that come with the altitude in the city of Cusco; but we can teach you how to avoid altitude sickness during the rest of your trip.

On the other hand, new hotels, a craft brewery and good restaurants, with some of the best chefs in the world, are placing the valley among the best destinations in South America.

Packing List

  • Wear comfortable shoes, polos, pants, shorts, poncho (only during the rainy season Nov - Mar) Sun hat, sunscreen, bottled water and personal medications
  • Extra money
  • Portable chargers and cameras

Sacred Valley Tour

The valley area between Pisac and Ollantaytambo is known as the Sacred Valley of the Incas. n this tour we will go through the mountains until we reach the "Sacred Valley of the Incas" - which had a great importance in the Inca culture. The Valley has a more temperate climate than Cusco and we will see a series of picturesque villages, agricultural terraces and many archaeological sites. This tour is the "Traditional" or Classic tour, designed to see the entire Sacred Valley in a single day full of action! If you have more time, we recommend spending the night in the Sacred Valley (we recommend either Ollantaytambo or Urubamba) and so you can assimilate a bit of the relaxed atmosphere.
