Sacred Valley Horse Riding & Pisac
Sacred Valley, Peru
Enjoy an unforgettable horse ride in the Sacred Valley (all abilities welcome) combined with a visit to the local market, Inca Ruins of Pisac and lunch. The Sol y Luna horses are Peruvian Paso horses, which are unique to Peru and truly wonderful to ride.
After a short orientation, you will set off along Sacred Valley passing through many different rural communities where many are still dressed in traditional clothing from Inca times. It is a gentle ride and a great way to see how the locals still live their lives with very little impact from the modern world. Lunch is at Wayra, the Sol y Luna's signature restaurant and includes delicious local ingredients and traditional dishes. Afterwards, you will be treated to a Paso Horse show from their stables. In the afternoon you will visit the picturesque Andean village of Pisac. The village is famous for its local market and superb artisan stalls. Time can be spent shopping or, for the more energetic, visiting the extensive Inca ruins at the top of the hill. Pisac ruins have much to explore, with a circular hike along well-defined Inca trails passing through royal buildings, look-outs, terraces, tunnels and irrigation channels. You can also visit a traditional bakery to try freshly baked bread and learn about the guinea pigs of Peru down in the village itself.
