Itinerary

Day 1: Travel from Cusco and Ride into Peru’s Mountains
Begin your Sacred Valley horseback riding tour with 8:00 am hotel pick-up in Cusco and private transfer to the Sacred Valley. Upon arrival at the ranch, you’ll get to know your friendly Peruvian Paso horse and receive a welcome and safety demonstration with an experienced riding instructor.

After familiarizing yourself with your four-legged companion for the day, you’ll leave the ranch on horseback with your fellow travelers and riding team. In addition to your bilingual guide, a full team will accompany you on your overnight ride, and will help with meals, camp set-up, and care for horses.

In the morning, you’ll set out for a famous salt mine, and discover the area’s awesome history with your trained guide. Around mid-day you’ll stop for lunch, then begin your ascent into the Peruvian mountains. Here, you’ll see spectacular snow-capped mountains in the distance, including the towering peak of Chicon Mountain.

In the evening, you’ll set up camp and enjoy dinner at the rustic campsite of Tiobama.

Day 2: Discover Archaeological Sites and Return to Cusco
After breakfast, you’ll travel from Tiobama on horseback to the archaeological site of Chekoq. Here, pre-Inca civilizations stored food using an ingenious system of underground air-circulation. You’ll tour the site with your guide before continuing onward amid the spectacular mountians of Huaypo.

In the afternoon, you’ll travel to the Inca site at Moray. Here, admire the complex and sophisticated terraces used to grow various crops at distinct climate and temperature levels. From here, you’ll travel back to the ranch for your return trip to your hotel in Cusco.
