4 Days / 3 Nights Program

Day
1

Cusco - Málaga Pass - Santa Maria (Biking + Rafting)

We’ll pick you up from your hotel or hostel in Cusco from 5:20 am and then depart in our private transport through the majestic Sacred Valley of the Incas. Our downhill adventure begins at approximately 11:30am at Málaga Pass, where from an altitude of 4320 meters above sea level we’ll enjoy sweeping views overlooking both the Sacred Valley and the jungle. We’ll don our gloves and helmets, receive a quick briefing from our experienced guide, and the set off! We’ll race down trails passing changing landscapes, starting with views of the snow-capped Andes, including the impressive snowy peak of Verónica (5316 meters above sea level). We’ll stop to enjoy our box lunch in Alfamyo with its impressive vistas before setting off for a guided visit of the recently discovered Inca ruins of Huamanmarca Archeological Complex, where among other features you’ll see the usnu ritual site. From Huamanmarka we’ll continue by bus to Santa Maria (1130m), where we’ll arrive at approximately 4:30pm. En route to this charming small town, we’ll pass by increasing greenery and waterfalls as we begin to delve into the jungle landscape with its abundant plant and animal life, which begins at 1500 meters above sea level. We’ll have our dinner in a local restaurant, go over the next day’s itinerary, and spend the night in a basic guesthouse.

Optional: Rafting in Santa Maria (Surcharge) 2 hours of adventure in Santa Maria River with rapids level III and IV.

Santa Maria – Santa Teresa (Trekking)

After an invigorating early breakfast at 6:00am in Santa Maria, we’ll embark on a walking trail filled with natural vegetation as dawn rises. During today’s walk you’ll be able to see tropical birds, fruit trees, orchids, coca and coffee crops, orchards, large rivers, and with luck, some of the exotic animals of the region. Not only is the landscape here truly overwhelming, but we’ll also walk along an original Inca trail which stretches for about a half mile, winding around precipitous drops. We’ll continue the descent until reaching our lunch site, the very small tropical riverside town of Qellomayo, around noon.

After lunch and a rest, we’ll follow the Vilcanota River towards the town of Santa Teresa (1650 meters above sea level) at about 1:00pm, arriving two hours later.

We’ll enjoy our breakfast in the town of Santa Teresa at 6:00am, embarking around 7:30am along an Inca trail that we’ll follow en route to the Hydroelectric Station. During this day’s walk we’ll pass hanging bridges and oroyas, which are a method of crossing rivers and ravines using a cable and hanging baskets, and see many colorful butterflies and parrots. We’ll have lunch en route at noon, possibly at the hydroelectric. Afterwards, it’s three hours more to the small but vibrant town of Aguas Calientes, where we’ll arrive at 3:00pm and accommodate ourselves in our hostel. You’ll have the afternoon free to explore the town, perhaps relaxing in the hot springs for which the town is named, and then we’ll have dinner in a local restaurant at around 7:30pm.
