Itinerary

Day 1: Cuzco - Santa Maria, Peru

Today we leave Cuzco between 6:20 – 6:30am (you will be picked up from your accommodation between 6:00 – 6:30hrs), to journey by road in a van making our first stop after 1.5 hours in Ollantaytambo where we can have a quick breakfast and buy some snacks.

Then we continue driving for another 1.5 hours up to the Malaga High Pass (4,350 meters) where our guide will provide us with a safety briefing before we begin our adventurous 2.5 hour bike ride down into the lush and humid jungle.

We will see Huamanmarca Archaeological site along the way, cruise through fruit plantations and over rivers before arriving to Santa Maria village (1,400 meters) at around 2:00-2:30pm where you will have the rest of the day at leisure.

You may choose to participate in an optional rafting activity or walk around town on your own.

Enjoy your night at a basic, rustic guesthouse.

Day 2: Santa Maria - Santa Teresa Village, Peru

After an early morning breakfast, we will begin our day of hiking through the jungle mountains to observe beautiful pristine landscapes, abundant flora and fauna and friendly local people.

Have lunch halfway during the trek and relax breathing fresh mountain air.

In the afternoon we will arrive to Santa Teresa village (1,680 meters) where we will stay overnight in a basic rustic guesthouse.

Day 3: Santa Teresa Village - Aguas Calientes, Peru

Take an easy 3-hour hike along the train tracks from Santa Teresa to Hydroelectric Station where you will stop for lunch. Continue 3 more hours on foot to reach Aguas Calientes town, where you will find internet cafes, cafes with board games and cards, plenty of shops and places to relax.

(Most people hike this portion of the trek but there is an optional train ride from Hydroelectric Station to Aguas Calientes if you’re feeling tired).

Overnight in a hotel tonight for a well-deserved shower and good night’s sleep.

Day 4: Aguas Calientes-Machu Picchu-Cuzco, Peru

We will catch one of the first buses (05:30 am) to Machu Picchu (25-minute ride) in order to appreciate the magnificent city in the early morning light as the mist dissipates.

A walking tour (approximately 2 hours) is given by your guide and after this you can explore the mysterious city on your own. If you still have energy you can also climb the Huayna Picchu Peak (to be booked in advance at an extra cost).

Return to Aguas Calientes by bus.

If time allows, visit the local marketplace next to the train station and shop until the train whistle blows, signalling your return to Ollantaytambo.

From Ollantaytambo, you will take a bus back to Cuzco arriving around 08:00pm.

You will be dropped off at the Plaza San Francisco. Please make your own way to the accommodation of your choice upon arrival.
