Detailed Itinerary

Upon your arrival in Cusco, our representative will welcome you and transfer you to the hotel. At your hotel, receive a short briefing and the rest of the morning to enjoy some leisure time to rest and acclimatize to the altitude.

At 1pm, pick you up at your hotel to begin the tour of the Imperial City of Cusco, a unique blend of Andean and Spanish cultures. Then, we continue our journey visiting the Santo Domingo Convent built over the Temple of the Sun (Koricancha), as well as the Ancient Inca Palace and the main worship center of the Sun God.  We proceed to visit the archaeological site of Sacsayhuaman, which dominates the city. Finally, we go to the fascinating ruins of Qenqo, Puca Pucará and Tambomachay, located in the north east of the city.

Afterwards we take you back to the hotel in early evening. Glamping Peru Treks sets you up in one of the best hotels in Cusco.

  • 5* Accommodation: Aranwa Hotel
  • Meals included:  Lunch

We start this beautiful day at 7:30am, when the guide picks you up at the hotel in Cusco in our private van. We journey through the Sacred Valley of the Incas towards Pisac. Our first stop is at the Mirador of Taray to enjoy an expansive view of the Urubamba valley and its traditional farming villages. You will see how little the agriculture in the Sacred Valley has changed in the past five hundred years.

Later, we drive to the archeological site of Pisac, see an impressive Inca cemetery with more than 2,000 tombs. There, we can admire the carefully engineered farming terraces carved into the mountain, explore the Inca tunnel and the religious area of this important citadel. Here, we will spend about 2 hours exploring the Inca city. Head down to the colorful market of Pisac and then drive to Urubamba for a delectable lunch.

Our next stop is the archeological site of Moray also known as “The Greenhouse of the Incas” a deep basin of architectural wonder. Levels of terraces are carved into a huge bowl, which was carefully engineered by the Incas. The terraces have varied microclimates depending on how deep into the bowl they are placed.  Archeologists believe that they were used by the Incas to discover the optimal growing conditions for their crops and to experiment with hybridization.

Continuing on our journey to the colonial town of Maras, we look down onto the pre-Inca salt “mines,” called salineras in Spanish. Thousands of salt pans have been passed down through countless generations and used for salt extraction since before Inca times. There is a hot spring at the top of the valley that discharges a small stream of heavily salt laden water, that they divert into salt pans and evaporated to produce salt. This is one of the few places in the world where you can find naturally pink salt!

Finally, we drive to our hotel Aranwa in the Sacred Valley; for a night of pampering and relaxation. Try out their spa or visit their orchid garden with an array of flora and fuana native to this part of the region. Other great activities include a fishing area, Unno Spa, golf carts to move around their extensive property, a library for light reading, an outdoor pool, a jacuzzi or pay a visit to their Pisco bar for some local and international refereshments.

Your guide will have all of your permits and tickets.

At the start of the trail (2,720m/8,923ft) you will cross the Vilcanota River and follow its scenic route. The first day is relatively easy, a warm-up along the rolling ‘Inca flat’ terrain.  There are great views of the Inca Fortress of Huillca Raccay, the vast and incredible Inca site of Llactapata, (also called Patallacta), the Urubamba mountain range that divides the jungle, the Andes Mountains and the beautiful snow-capped peak of Veronica (5,860m/19,225ft), also known as W’akay Willca. You stop for your first gourmet lunch at Hatunchaca, after which you only have about three hours of walking to camp.

Our first campsite is about 2 hours past the small village of Wayllabamba (3,000m/9,842ft) located in the temperate green valley of the same name. Temperatures at night can be as low as 5ºC, depending on the season. It is generally colder in the dry season from May to September.

Your guide will wake you up at 6am with another hot cup of tea or coffee before you get up for breakfast. You start the day with a gentle climb towards the archaeological site of Phuyupatamarca, which means ‘Village in the Clouds’.  Here, we reach the third highest point along the Inca trail (3,680m/12,073ft). The views of the mountains, canyons and surrounding areas are spectacular!

The extensive Inca site of Phuyupatamarca, is located a few minutes’ walk from the third pass.  After visiting this site, you continue walking down 3,000 stairs through the cloud forest to the impressive Inca site of Intipata. As you descend from the mountains, you will feel the temperature rise. Not only are you approaching Machu Picchu, but also the beginning of the Amazon jungle! After taking some time to visit Intipata, you continue to your third campsite Wiñay Wayna (2,680m/8,792ft). Today, you will only walk about 4 to 5 hours.  You will arrive at camp by lunchtime!

Enjoy an elaborate lunch, rest a little and explore the Wiñay Wayna campsite and its surroundings. Temperatures during the night are about 12º C/53º F.

At that point, the majestic Machu Picchu Citadel will be in front of you with its mystic beauty – an incredible sight for all to see. At the Sun Gate, watch the sunlight spreading down over the citadel like melting goal, as the sun rises behind you.

Finally, we walk downhill towards Machu Picchu Citadel (2,400m/7,872 ft.). After walking for about 40 minutes, we enter the citadel from the top through the “House of the Guardians”. From there, we proceed towards the control point, where we register and leave any large backpacks or walking poles. According to the government, you can only take small bags into the citadel, such as camera bags. Inside the cidatel you will not be able to enter with your walking poles because they can damage the stones.

The guide will give you the full tour, which takes about two hours. You get to see a a lot of the important parts of the Cidatel of Machu Picchu, with explanations from your guide about significance and use of each site by ancient Incas. Learn about how Machu Picchu is divided into three sectors: agricultural, residential, and religious.

After your tour, those who have booked in advance for the extra hikes up Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain will have time to enjoy the tour on their own. When you have had your fill of the exceptional views of Machu Picchu, take the bus back down to Aguas Calientes for lunch. Depending on your train departure time, you may also have time for some shopping, sightseeing or a visit to the museum or hot springs.

Day off to rest and enjoy Cusco.

Cusco is a very walkable city with a lot of attractions. We recommend trying places like San Blas. The markets, the restaurants and the ambiance are not to be missed. Next is San Pedro Market, to get a few souvenirs for friends and family and to observe how the locals go about their daily lives.

Finally, head to Plaza de Armas, if you are lucky, you might catch some of the street dance festivities that happen so frequently here. Plaza De Armas the historical center of Cusco, has a great vibe and an electric nightlife. If you want a little food to remind you of home, they have anything from KFC, Chinese, Thai, Middle Eastern/ North African food like Falafel, Japanese, they pretty much have everything. You crave it they have it. Also note massages sold in the historical center are some the cheapest you will get anywhere else in the world. So why not spoil yourself, the next day you have a hike to the summit of Rainbow Mountain.

  • 5* Accomadation: Aranwa Hotel

Pick up from your hotel at 4am, begin with our amazing Rainbow Mountain Trek Adventure.  We set out on our drive for 3 hours through the South Valley, ending up at the trailhead at Llacto (4,638m / 15,216 ft).  Along the way, there are amazing views of farming Inca terraces, traditional villages, valleys and high Andean peaks.

The herds of alpacas and llamas near your breakfast place will entertain you in the early morning. Once we reach the trailhead, we start on our hike following a lovely stream. As you start your hike, you will have views of the Ausangate Mountain and glaciers. You can interact with the local people, who are still keeping traditional Quechua culture alive. Learn about their traditional clothes and the significance of the different hats worn by the men. The people here are so friendly and patient, even with very little Spanish and no Quechua, they are keen to share so much about their culture. Our guide to teach you a few words of Quechua!

After a total hike of 1.5 hours, we finally reach the summit of Rainbow Mountain. The hike up to Rainbow Mountain is gradual , with no steep inclines except for one at the very end. You have the option of hiring a horse from the locals to take you on the trail but the last incline is too steep for the horses. So you have to walk up the last section of the trail. Rainbow Mountain sits at the highest altitude so far, at (5,020m /16,466ft). After admiring the unique beauty of this mountain, you will have time to explore the area at your own pace. You can take pictures or just soak up the view. We will spend approximately 30 minutes at the top. Afterwards, there is an optional hike across to the top of the Red Valley.  This walk takes about 45 minutes longer to get back to the trailhead.

At this point, we hike back down the way we came. The hike takes 1 hour, then we enjoy our lunch prepared by our cook. We make our own food on this tour, so be sure to let us know of any allergies or dietery restrictions and we will gladly accomodate you.

We will embark on a 3-hour journey back to Cusco and drop you off at your Cusco hotel, arriving around 6:30pm.
