Explora Sacred Valley
• Sacred Valley of the Incas • 30 included expeditions by vehicle, trekking and mountain bike, suitable for all levels of fitness • History and culture abound
Framed by summits which once housed the Inca civilization and zigzagging along the waters of the Urubamba River, the Sacred Valley, Cuzco and Machu Picchu are destinations with endless exploration possibilities.
The Sacred Valley of the Incas is an area of extraordinary beauty, situated around 60 minutes drive from Cuzco. An advantage of staying at the explora Sacred Valley Hotel is that you are nearly 600 metres lower than Cuzco and acclimatization to altitude is much easier at these levels. You will not notice the higher altitude by the time you return to the city. The hotel contains 44 spacious and well-appointed rooms and 6 suites located in one of the region's most remote and ancient corn plantations close to the Urquillos village. It is designed in line with its surroundings, generating a dialogue with the high Andean mountains as well as the surrounding plantations that are still being harvested by townspeople today. explora Sacred Valley is renowned for its fine cuisine, featuring both international and local dishes.
Over 30 included tour options by vehicle, foot or by mountain bike are inspired by its unique geography, Inca ruins and the authenticity of its people. Our explorations, always led by a competent and bilingual guide from our Guide School, take place in English or Spanish for groups of up to eight people. Travellers will explore the colonial history of Cusco, the architectural magnificence of the Incas in Machu Picchu, discover isolated villages, and marvel at archaeological sites such as Ollantaytambo, Moray, Chinchero and Pisac.
