From $150


The Sacred Valley is vast and stretches for miles with many small indigenous towns, Camelid farm, secluded weaving villages, and ancient Inca Ruins including Pisac, Ollantaytambo and Urubamba. The tour starts at the massive Pisac ruins with its impressive Inca cemetery of more than 2,000 tombs, engineered farming terraces carved into the mountain, the Inca tunnel and the religious area of this important citadel.

The ATV tour includes the Salt Mines in Maras which has thousands of salt ponds carved into the mountainside fed by natural springs above; and the Terraces of Moray, built in the form of an amphitheater and have different temperatures at each level to grow crops. It was watered through a complex irrigation system and allowed the cultivation of the Incas to grow over 250 types of vegetables. The tour ends at the fascinating and imposing site of Ollantaytambo, a truly impressive Inca ruin with the Sun Temple, the water fountains, the temple of Inkawatana and the impressive storehouses.

We will pick you up from your hotel at 7:30am and head to the Sacred Valley of the Incas

Our first stop is the Manos de la Comunidad, which has a variety of Camelids that are indigenous to Peru, including the llamas and alpacas.

At the farm you get to pet, feed and take pictures with these adorable animals. Additionally, we find local women dressed in traditional clothing, demonstrating the weaving process using the wool from the animals.

As we leave, we will pass through a museum and souvenir shop. The staff are always around to answer any questions, but don’t feel pressured to buy anything.

The next stop is the Mirador of Taray. stretching out in front of you, as far as the eye can see, is a beautiful panoramic view of the Urubamba valley, made up of the surrounding mountains and the gushing Urubamba river.

Next up, the Pisac archaeological site. This is the location of the biggest Inca cemetery with more than 2,000 tombs lining the mountain side. Explore the many Inca farming terraces, food storage warehouses, and the water channels built for irrigation purposes before heading back to the van.

We head to Urubamba for lunch, passing small farming towns like Coya and Calca before stopping at the outskirts of Urubamba for a delicious and varied buffet lunch. The restaurant has an impressive spread and is vegan and vegetarian friendly.

On our way to the ATV camp, the guide offers a quick lesson on the correct use of the ATVs so we are ready and raring to get going as soon as we arrive. We take our ATV through secluded indigenous villages to the Salt Mines.

Once at this incredible historical site, we will learn about how it has been mined since pre-Inca settlements and continues to be the bread and butter for this small community.

The salt stream above feeds the thousands of salt pans, once the water has evaporated the salt is collected and sold. The salt mines are one of the few left in the world that produce a natural pink salt and have not adopted any modern techniques for mass salt mining.

The locals have full mining rights and all the salt sold on site belongs to the locals. These saltpans still supply Peru with over 90% of its salt. A great place to grab another souvenir.

We jump back on our ATVs and head over to the archaeological site of Moray, which was an agricultural laboratory from before the Inca time. It works by creating various micro-climates for growing food.

These levels of terraces were carved before the Incas took control of the Sacred Valley and they were continued to be used by the Incas in order to research optimal growing conditions for their crops.

The Incas upped the anti a little, by bringing in different soil samples from other regions to optimize their research. The locals were still using Moray for growing their crops until the 1970s when it was preserved and protected for tourism.

After our guided tour of this incredibly unique site, we head back to the ATV camp. There we leave them behind and head to Ollantaytambo, our last stop of the day.

We take a little time to explore this quaint Inca village and the amazing Inca Ruins on the hilltop above. These ruins are where the Incas fought their last battle with the Spanish conquerors, before they had to retreat and flee into the dense jungle.

Most of the structures were unfortunately incomplete. There is a section with a number of boulders that were carved, but didn’t make it to their destination. Another possibility is that the battle was so intense, it caused a lot of damage to this massive Inca site

After our tour ends in Ollantaytambo, we drive you back to Cusco, arriving at around 6:30pm.
