The adventure starts with pickup at your Cusco hotel, where a vehicle takes you into the countryside with a stop for a meal at a bed and breakfast. At the top of Abra Malaga, get fitted for a helmet, gloves, and mountain bike to descend through the Incan Valley. Choose to upgrade for a whitewater rafting tour. The group meets to spend the night at a Santa Rosa ecolodge.
On the second day, hike on the Inca trail past farms growing coffee, pineapples, and other fruit. As you descend to the village of Quellomayo, your guide points out local flora and fauna. The trek encompasses a suspension bridge, waterfalls, rivers, and a cable train, ending at the Cocalmayo hot springs. Spend the night in Santa Teresa.
Start the third day on a zipline (available by upgrade; reserved in advance) or with a hike to Hidroelectrica where the group meets for lunch at a cottage on Machu Picchu’s flank. Walk the railway path through the jungle to Aguas Calientes for dinner and rest.
Begin your trek to Machu Picchu on day four to catch the sunrise. Meet a guide for a 2-hour tour of the sanctuary, followed by free time. If reserved in advance, hike to Huayna Picchu (own expense). Return on your own to Aguas Calientes to catch the return train to Ollantaytambo, or opt to spend an extra night on your own before returning to Cusco.
