    • A light day pack to carry your things
    • Your Boleto Turistico (Tourist ticket)
    • Water bottle and water
    • Money for snacks, souvenirs and tips

    You can also see What to Bring for our comprehensive recommendations on what to pack for a trek in the Andes. For more great suggestions, check out our blog about How to Prepare for a Trek in Peru.

Optional Extras & Upgrades

    When calculating the cost of renting equipment, calculate using the length of the entire trip, not just the number of trekking days. Even though you won’t use the equipment on the final day it will still be ‘on the road’ and unavailable for others to use.

    Please be careful with rented equipment! You are responsible for the cost of replacement if something is damaged or broken.

    • Light-weight aluminum walking stick. Two sticks are recommended for tough hikes.
    • Combine with a day trip to Machu Picchu, either at the beginning or end of your trek
    • Horseback riding – ask us for pricing

Itinerary

We will pick you up early from your hotel in our private transport and take you high above the city of the Cusco. From here, we will either continue by vehicle or by horse depending on what you chose at the time of booking.

We spend the morning visiting the most famous ruins just outside Cusco, Tambo Machay, Puca Pucara, the Temple of the Moon and Q’enqo, ending up at the spectacular fortress ruins of Sacsayhuaman. Our flexible itinerary allows you to walk down from Sacsayhuaman to Cusco (an interesting walk and helpful for trekkers needing to acclimatize to the altitude) or take private transport.

After lunch at a local restaurant, we will have a walking tour of Cusco, the ancient capital of the Incas and the “Navel of the World”.  Our afternoon tour includes the Cathedral, Q’oricancha (theTemple of the Sun), as well as eminent weaving houses in the city where you can learn a little about this living tradition of the Incas.
