    This route first takes us to Ollantaytambo, also known as the “living Inca city”. From there we travel to the archaeological site of Moray, a laboratory of experimental farming where different microclimates are used to grow crops. From here we continue to Maras and a large lagoon, an ideal place to take a stroll and have lunch, to then follow to the town of Chinchero. The road crosses several fields where we will see farmers working or looking after their animals.

Afterwards, we continue on bicycle, from the top of the slopes of the valley we descend on a wide path kept in good condition. The journey offers interesting views towards the mountains and the Urubamba river.

The Pumamarca remains pose a conundrum to archeologists and explorers: their origins and functions are still unknown.

    We explore the famous historical sanctuary of Machu Picchu, one of the most impressive architectural expressions of the Inca civilization. We leave the hotel towards the train station in Ollantaytambo, where we take the train to the town of Aguas Calientes to ascend to Machu Picchu by bus. We explore this magical place for approximately three hours. This version does not include the hike to Puerta del Sol or Inti Punku. Once we’ve visited the sanctuary, we leave Machu Picchu and head towards the station to take the train back.

    *This exploration combines Explora services with third-party services, meaning it must be confirmed with our booking team at least 50 days before the visit. It has an additional cost of USD $400 for adults and USD $350 for children (up to 11 years). The exploration to Machu Picchu is provided through the rail company Perú Rail in the “Vistadome” or “Expedition” modality, depending on availability. The entrance to Machu Picchu must be at 11am.

    This exploration reveals the influence of the Spanish conquest in the region, embedded in art and in the religious syncretism that resulted from the encounter of these cultures. We begin by touring the first of three Canincunca churches that we visit in this exploration. We then walk to the Huaro church and take a van to the Andahuaylillas church, where we tour the choir and the museum. Next, we hop on a van towards an Inca road, where we take a light trek to a wetland, perfect for bird watching and having lunch. Finally, we take the van to the Tipón archaeological center, a token of the Inca’s knowledge of fluid power.
