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.
