Together, you will drive to the Sacred Valley, enjoying lunch along the way and a stop at Manos del la Comunidad to start your immersion into Peruvian culture. 
  • Overnight: Sol y Luna, Sacred Valley
  • Included meals: L

2October 7

  • Wake and enjoy a lovely breakfast at Sol y Luna hotel. Today's activity will allow you to begin the elevation acclimation with a memorable hike along the ancestral routes in the Sacred Valley and a visit to the archeological center of Chinchero. The hike will take 5-6 hours and will be approximately 4-5 miles in length. Following the hike, you will begin your glamping experience, which will combine the beauty of a remote location with a comfortable and sophisticated set up. On a clear night, a bonfire will be lit and you can sit out and enjoy a star-filled sky. 
  • Overnight: Glamping, Sacred Valley (stunning experience...looks amazing!)
