DAY 4 – Terraces of Moray, Saltpans of Maras, Wayra Ranch Barbecue and Show

At the unique archaeological site of Moray, in the southern highlands, view one of the most extraordinary examples of Inca landscaping. Intriguing agricultural terraces were built here that gradually reduce in size as they descend into a natural depression formed by the mountainside. Tour the Saltpans of Maras, where salt is still produced using the same methods as in the Pre-Inca period. Afterward, stop at the Wayra Ranch just outside of Urubamba. Here, a delicious barbecue lunch awaits you on the garden view terrace. Witness a lively Peruvian Paso horse demonstration, performed by “Chalanes” on horseback, dressed in their finest linen outfits. This authentic performance is a wonderful display of coordination, discipline, and passion that sheds light on the strong Spanish influence in the highlands.

DAY 5 – Pisac, Andean Market, Ollantaytambo, Aguas Calientes

This morning, we drive to the vast Pisac complex, where our walking tour reveals a moon temple similar to the one found at Machu Picchu. Descending to the rustic Andean village of Pisac, we follow the crowds to the traditional Andean market where stalls extend from the main plaza into the inclined streets leading to the foot of the mountain. Hundreds of vendors appear, with stalls engulfing the streets in a blanket of vivid colored crafts from hand-knit woolens to trinkets and alpaca clothing. After time at leisure in Pisac, we visit the ruins of the Incan fortress in Ollantaytambo, last stand of the Incas in their defense against the Spanish conquistadors. This site, abandoned before completion, offered archaeologists a glimpse into the sophisticated engineering of the Incas. Next, at the Ollantaytambo train station, we board the Vistadome train that travels along the scenic Urubamba River to Aguas Calientes, with spectacular panoramic views of the countryside. We’ll check into our hotel at the foot of Machu Picchu in a Garden of Eden setting amid orchids, waterfalls, and hummingbirds. Tonight, a gourmet à la carte dinner

DAY 6 – Explore Machu Picchu, Private Spiritual Ceremony

An unforgettable and exciting day exploring the crowning achievement of Inca ingenuity – the mystical ancient citadel of Machu Picchu! Declared by UNESCO as one of the “New Seven Wonders of the World,” Machu Picchu was virtually unknown to the western world until Hiram Bingham’s rediscovery in 1911. View the majestic wonders of this 15th-century retreat, abandoned nearly 100 years later with the arrival of the conquistadors. See the highlights of the site including the imposing Temple of the Sun, the House of the Priest, the Sacred Plaza and the intricately carved rock likely used as a sundial by the ancient Incas. The images of this glorious monument to a lost civilization will truly be a lifelong memory. The rest of the day is yours.

After lunch at the hotel, the Vistadome train takes you back to the station in Ollantaytambo.

DAY 8 – Puka Pukara, Qenqo, Sacsayhuaman, Choir Performance

On this day of discovery, we visit the ruins of Puka Pukara, a red Incan fortress that stands on a hill with views over the surrounding countryside and the Sacsayhuaman fortress, a superb example of Inca construction techniques. Here, using massive boulders, the walls were cut and placed together with incredible precision and amazingly without a single drop of mortar to hold them in place. Then to Qenqo, one of the finest examples of artfully carved rock displaying complex patterns of geometric reliefs and puma designs. On top of the rock, view the embedded zigzag channels which served to divert liquids or sacrificed llama blood for purposes of divination.

On to the colonial section of the city, a UNESCO declared World Heritage Site, built in the 17th century atop existing Incan foundations, creating a one of a kind architecture. Visit the Cathedral, the Santo Domingo church, built on top of the religious complex of Koricancha that once held the extraordinary Temple of the Sun, deemed the center of the Inca world dedicated to its highest Gods. This temple’s walls and floors were allegedly once covered by sheets of solid gold.
