Looking for some fun, this multi-active trip to Machu Picchu, features mountain biking in the Andes and archaeological sites, rafting in one of the best sections of the Urubamba rain forest and a guided tour around the Impressive Machu Picchu
Throughout this trip you will find the Andean Mountain packed with unique ruins, charming villages, Salineras (Inca salt mines that still is in use), the rain forest and Machu Picchu. Be ready to stop and explore the surrounding and take photographs of the astonishing views of each destination during the whole entire trip.
At 8 am your tour guide and our van/bus will meet at the lobby of your Hotel. It takes one hour drive to Maras where your guides will provide a trip orientation about the mountain biking. After everyone feels comfortable we begin our ride with a nice mountain bike through a well maintained dirt road, learning about the unique environment while we travel through Moray complex.
“Moray was an Inca agricultural complex, no one knows exactly the purpose of this site, but the most acceptable theory is they used to serve as agricultural research center. The temperatures between terraces can vary by more than 20 degrees”.
Lunch will be served after the guided tour with the view of Moray complex and the mountain range of the Sacred Valley.
After lunch, we will begin the second section riding on the superb circuit of Salineras salt mines ”Salineras are thousands of small ponds carved into the mountains. This place were constructed during the Chanapata culture between AD 200 and AD 900, and has been in use since Inca times”. Moray – Salineras mountain biking is an activity that fit perfectly into our Machu Picchu Adventure tour and combines properly with the rafting in the rain forest and the Machu Picchu complex.
