Your Mountain Biking Cusco Tour starts with pickup from Ollantaytambo or Urubamba (Cusco pickup available for an additional cost). In Ollantaytambo, you will meet your guide. You will then be transported to the ancient Inca ruins of Moray. This is one of the most important archaeological sites in the Sacred Valley. It was a research center, where the Incas studied different types of seeds.
After visiting Moray, you will receive all of your safety equipment and bike. Your guide will also give you an introduction and description of the route. Then, you will begin biking on trails surrounded by beautiful mountains and impressive glaciers. Along the way, you will stop at lookout points to take pictures. One of the stops will be at the pre-colonial town of Maras. There, you will rest and eat a snack before continuing.
The next stop is at the Salt Mines, a pre-Inca site with interesting architecture and many wells. Today, local people harvest the salt and export it around the world. After that visit, you will take the final stretch of the biking route to Tarabamba. Finally, your driver will pick you up there and take you back to Ollantaytambo.
