Exploring The Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu

Touring The Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu

A stone’s throw beyond Cusco’s wonder is the Andean Sacred Valley, a riveting countryside where, as we’ve said before, “the Inca past meets Peru’s present.” Filled with trails, tiny villages, and arguably South America’s most important landmark – Machu Picchu, it’s an unmissable stop on your journey. Spend a day visiting unfathomable lookouts which gaze at the towering Andes and the markets blooming with excitement and Peruvian Spanish.  Dip your toes into the gourmet cuisine found throughout the Sacred Valley’s many hidden restaurants and instead of dessert, take a train to the foot of Machu Picchu.

If you’re planning on making Machu Picchu a star event of its own, take advantage of a privately guided full day tour where your tour guide will lead you to the ruins just as the sun peeks its head over the valley. Without the usual hoards of tourists, the private tour allows you to revel in the majesty and beautiful haunting echo of one of the world’s most complex civilizations. Follow up with an out of this world lunch at the Sanctuary Lodge before heading up one of the remote mountains of Machu Picchu for an aerial view and different angle of the ancient citadel. Read more about Peru’s highlight destinations…
