Today you'll arrive in Lima and will be greeted by your host. Your private transfer will then take you to the selected hotel. At your hotel, a healing sauna session awaits you to prepare you for the adventures that are to come. 

In the evening, you'll receive a welcome dinner at a traditional Peruvian taberna. Set in a converted house in the old seaside resort of Barranco, this tavern recreates simple and seasonal criollo dishes as they would traditionally have been prepared at home. 

*The hotel sauna is open until 9:00 pm.

It's time to head to Cusco and the incredible Sacred Valley! Your transfer will take you to the airport where you'll board the flight to Cusco and upon arrival, you'll be taken directly to the Sacred Valley of the Incas to avoid altitude sickness. You will begin today's tour with a visit to the town of Pisac, and the nearby Inca site. While walking through the city, you'll get to experience its history and stroll through the beautiful square and the picturesque Andean handicraft market.

Later, you'll check into Hacienda Sarapampa where Maria del Pilar and Joseph, the third generation of Giant White corn producers, will welcome you to this beautiful colonial place. With them as guides, you'll have a unique experience where you get to learn first-hand about the unique Giant White Corn of the Sacred Valley (the only one in the world with a protected designation of origin!), its production and life at the hacienda. Get ready to be spoiled by the hosts with a corn-based lunch including an array of fresh, locally sourced produce and stories from the lands. 

There will also be time for pampering at the hotel. You'll have a 30-minute massage session that will help you settle in and get attuned to the energy of the Andes mountains. 

Today, you'll go on an amazing lake tour surrounded by snow-capped mountains, where you'll experience the true taste of the roots of the Andean culture: Pachamanca. Pachamanca is an ancient culinary practice that uses an underground stone oven that ends in a traditional meal. While the land does its work and the food is cooking, you'll have time to enjoy outdoor activities such as paddle boarding or kayaking on the beautiful Piuray Lake.

You'll complete the experience by witnessing the unearthing of the food and enjoying a lunch surrounded by nature and stunning views. This Pachamanca is led by cooks from the community who over time have merged their culinary tradition with the knowledge of professional chefs. After lunch, a special native pago ceremony awaits which is a thanksgiving ritual to Mother Earth. During this guided ceremony, the participants ask for her blessings and protection and thank her for her gifts. Mother Earth and nature are deeply stored in the Peruvian culture and many people who live here still honor and have a close connection to her. 

You will end today's adventures by visiting the stunning terraces of Moray and the Maras salt mines. Here, you'll enjoy an afternoon rest and the incredible views that these wonders offer. Back at the hotel, a wellness hydrotherapy session awaits at the hotel’s top-notch water circuit.

Today you'll leave Cusco early and board a train that will take you along the Urubamba River in the Sacred Valley of the Incas toward Chachabamba. Once you get off the train in Chachabamba, you'll begin your tour with your guide by crossing the suspension bridge at 54.6 miles (104 km) altitude and start a three-hour ascent to the ruins of Wiñay Wayna. This is one of the most important ceremonial Inca sites!

You'll follow the Inca Trail that climbs to the ridge above Machu Picchu before finally reaching Intipunku — the Sun Gate, and then descend. Prepare yourself for another unforgettable experience as you take in the view of the once-lost citadel perched above the Urubamba River. This is, without a doubt, how the Inca meant Machu Picchu to reveal itself to its visitors. You can then choose to descend by foot to your hotel, located in the town at the foot of the hill, or take a 40-minute bus. After leaving Machu Picchu, you will head to your hotel and enjoy a well-deserved 60-minute regenerative massage, ready to tackle a new adventure tomorrow!

After a hearty breakfast, you’ll head back to the citadel of Machu Picchu and the surrounding sites and a 30-minute bus ride. On this three-hour tour, you'll have the chance to get intimate knowledge of the Incas way of life, their belief system, societal organization and ultimate demise. It's time to get close, listen carefully and take in this thrilling tale every bit as impressive as the landscape it is set in.

There will also be a guided hike up to Machu Picchu’s sister peak — Huayna Picchu. A fascinating archeological site in its own right, this mountain rises from the Valley and stands like a watchful guardian. It takes about an hour and a half to climb, but the reward is well worth it with a 360-degree view of the lost Valley of the Inca.

In the afternoon, it's time to return to the town and after a nice lunch, the train will be waiting to take you back to Ollantaytambo. From here, your private transport will take you to your hotel in Cusco where a fine dining experience awaits. The dinner will take place at Cicciolina, which is a renowned cosmopolitan restaurant that offers innovative dishes based on Andean tradition. Then it's time to say goodbye to Cusco. 

After the physically demanding last couple of days, you will start your final day in Cusco in a more relaxing manner with a yoga session. With a setting that simply could not be better, you'll experience yoga at a studio at the top of the hotel, making you feel as though you were floating over the old city below.

The fun is definitely not over after your session, so look forward to another tour that begins with a visit to the Cusco gastronomic heart — the San Pedro Market — where you'll learn about and taste incredible Andean ingredients. Afterward, you'll put this knowledge to practice in an interactive healthy cooking class, gaining knowledge of the properties of renowned Andean superfoods, such as native potatoes or quinoa.

Following the market visit and a delicious lunch which you make yourself (or almost—wink wink), a private guide will share secrets about this magical city. This will be the perfect ending to your journey in Peru. So take in the last of Cusco as you explore the city on foot, navigating it as if you were a local. Because what memories are better than the ones that are rare?

In the late afternoon, you'll head back to the airport for your flight to Lima, where you'll catch your international connection. Whether you are going home or on adventures somewhere else, make sure to let this journey sink in. Peru is a place that no one forgets and now, you will have seen one of the most magical places in the world. 

Until next time!
