Day 4 - Jungle Lodge to Cusco
Spend today exploring the beautiful city of Cusco - wander the main plaza, visit the Tread Right support weaving centre or feed your sweet tooth with a visit to the chocolate museum.
Day 5 - Cusco to Sacred Valley
An iconic symbol of Peru, you'll be stopping off at a llama farm to show some love to these furry favourites up close. Then stop off to witness the ancient Incan art of weaving in practice by a group of talented local artisans. Throughout the journey, play close attention to your surrounds – there’s the chance to spot the Incan farming technique of terracing, as well as the ‘salineras’ (salt mines). Your explorations of the Sacred Valley will begin with a guided tour of the Pisac and Ollantaytambo ruins
Day 6 - Sacred Valley to Aguas Calientes or Inca Trail Trek
Can you feel the excitement mounting? Yep – those are pretty much the feels when Machu Picchu is quite literally on the horizon. This afternoon we’ll hop on the train to Aguas Calientes, a cute town in its own right complete with roaring river, quaint bridges and local haunts, but most famously known as the gateway town to Machu Picchu. We’ll meet up with those who opted for the one day trek, and basically spend the evening hyping each other up for what’s to come tomorrow.
Day 7 - Machu Picchu to Cusco
Built around 1450 at the height of the Incan Empire, Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the seven wonders of the new world.
Day 8 - Depart Cusco
It’s time to say adios to your travel buddies as your trip ends after breakfast.
