The Sacred Valley unveils its riches slowly, tantalisingly revealing Inca ruins at Pisac, vibrant Indian markets and the ancient fortress of Ollantaytambo. Be transported back in time by the precise stonework of the Incas and the well-preserved ruins of their towns, all the while surrounded by the dramatic mountain peaks and terraced farmlands of the foothills.
Exploring this landscape on horseback is a chance to discover a traditional way of life, passing through remote rural communities where locals dress in clothing little changed since the Inca period. Or get a bird’s eye view as you soar over the valley on a tandem paraglide, taking in the captivating landscape from above.
