Itinerary

Day 1 : Mountain biking from Chinchero to Moray and Maras, overnight Urubamba

Visiting: Cusco, Moray, and Maras

One of the best one-day bike rides in the whole of the Andes, we start from the town of Chinchero and cycle past Lake Huaypo to the spectacular circular ruins of Moray for lunch. We stop to take in the spectacular view of the Sacred Valley at the town of Maras, before braving the huge downhill through the saltpans of Salineras on old mule trails. At the bottom we cycle past the Urubamba river and rejoin our support vehicle, where we can relax for the short drive to your hotel in Urubamba.

Day 2 : Lares hotsprings descent and camp overnight

Visiting: Sacred Valley

This morning we drive into the Andes until we reach the top of a high pass, the starting point for our descent. Surrounded by breathtaking views, we then enjoy an awesome downhill on dirt road until we reach the valley. Arriving at the village of Lares (famous for its weavings and indigenous dress) , we soak away the afternoon in “Los Banos del Inca”- a perfect temperature hot spring in an awesome location, before returning to our campsite for the night.

Day 3 : Mountain biking from Lares to Calca Inca Trail

Visiting: Sacred Valley, Cusco

Driving back up into the Andes we descend into the Sacred Valley using a mix of ancient Inca trails and rough dirt road. We have a chance to hone our cycling skills on original Inca steps and can see Inca tombs en route as we cycle through an absolutely gorgeous ravine far from the road. By the time we reach the town of Calca we will have done 1,400m of descent, where we can meet our vehicle and relax for the short drive back to your hotel in Cusco.
