About the Ñaupa Iglesia Cusco Day Tour

Never heard of Ñaupa Iglesia (pronounced n-yow-pa ee-glay-see-a)? It’s only one of the coolest day trips from Cusco that you can do! If you want a taste of the “real Peru,” beyond the typical tourist circuits, our day trip to Ñaupa Iglesia is for you. This off-the-beaten-path day tour spans centuries of Peruvian culture, from pre-Incan civilizations to contemporary Andean life in the highlands, to the ultra-modern brew pub!

This Cusco day trip takes you out to the Sacred Valley, going high above the market town of Pisac and into the Andean highlands. After a glimpse of traditional Andean life, we head deeper into the Sacred Valley, and back in time. At the Inkariy Museum, we’ll immerse ourselves in Pre-Incan culture, learning all about these ancient civilizations that populated Peru hundreds and thousands of years ago.

Our day trip continues through the Sacred Valley, stopping in Urubamba for lunch before heading on to Pachar for a taste of a very modern delicacy – locally brewed craft beer! (only available Wednesday through Sunday)

Finally, our short Cusco tour culminates in a visit to the spiritual site of Ñaupa Iglesia, a ritual altar carved out of rock and radiating sacred energy.


Prices are per person in USD, based on group size. We do not have fixed-date group departures. If you do not want to book a private tour, please see our Trekkers Wanted page for a list of open departures within your dates.
