- About Us
Explore the secrets of Machu Picchu and visit a mummy cemetery. Float on the Urubamba River and cycle on the banks of the tranquil Huaypo Lake. All of these adventures form part of our Sacred valley and Machu family holiday experience
The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu make the perfect family getaway. The area offers many comforts and amenities. Yet, it’s small enough to offer that personal touch. This is a great adventure in a marvelous setting. You’ll cycle, float and hike your way through the Sacred Valley against the backdrop of the mighty Andes Mountains.
As your plane touches down in Cusco, your adventure is about to begin. You won’t miss a minute of the magic. Your guide will be waiting with a private van to take you and your family directly to the Sacred Valley (The sacred Valley is the best place to get easily acclimatize). As you enjoy your stay, you’ll become acclimatized to the altitude.
Our first stop is a small farm where your little ones will love meeting the inhabitants. They’re all Andean camelids. Get up close to the gentle alpacas, llamas and guanacos. After the farm visit, we continue our journey to Pisaq to explore the famous Pisaq complex. Here you’ll learn about the might Incas. You’ll get to explore a mummy cemetery and the royal baths. The Miradors in the area will afford you breathtaking vistas of the valley beyond.
Depending on the time available, you’ll enjoy a packed picnic or a delicious lunch at a local restaurant.
After a busy day, we’ll drop your family off at a hotel in Urubamba for a restful night.
After a healthy energy-packed breakfast, we’ll head off to Huaypo Village, a 40-minute drive from Urubamba. We’ll pick up our bikes and then take off on our cycling tour around the tranquil Huaypo Lake. We’ll pass villages and farms against a backdrop of the beautiful Andean Mountains. If you have the energy, we can continue to cycle to Salineras. Alternatively, you can hop into our private vehicle. The next step of our adventure is an easy hour-long hike to the Urubamba River. By this time, you’ll be hungry so we’ll take you to a child-friendly restaurant where you can enjoy some delicious local cuisine.
Day 3 is a lot of fun. We’ve selected the perfect spot on the river for your little ones to enjoy some watery entertainment. This section is safe for children under supervision. We have a six-man boat and a two-man boat so that the children can choose to raft with you or with a guide. Your children will love the boating adventure but we have more in store for them. We’ll board the train in Ollantaytambo and take the spectacular drive to Aguas Calientes Hotel along the Urubamba River all the way into the amazing Andean rain forest. You’ll have lunch on board the train along with live entertainment to keep your children amused.
This is the day you’ve been waiting for. We’re taking the shuttle to the iconic Machu Picchu. Since you have small children, we recommend you take the two-hour tour. We’ll explore the complex and climb the steps of Machu Picchu to reach its highest point. Our guides are used to taking children on tours so they’ll make sure that your kids have plenty of fun and a day to remember. At the end of the tour, we take the train back to Ollantaytambo and then drive to Cusco. If you want to take it easy, you can spend the night in Calientes or Ollantaytambo, returning to Cusco in the morning.
