Hotel Sol y Luna

Hotel Sol y Luna, 3 nights

The Hotel Sol y Luna is located in Peru’s Sacred Valley of the Incas, not far from the town of Urubamba. Peruvian art adorns each of the first class, comfortable adobe cottages, whose terraces offer spectacular views of the mountains. A place that does things the right way, this hotel has long been among our traveler favorites due to the superb accommodations, location, and service. There are also two outstanding restaurants, and beautiful horses that can be taken out into the surrounding mountains on horseback riding excursions.

Sacred Valley

Fly over the Andes to Cusco, the ancient capital of the Incan Empire.  When you land in Cusco you will be met at the airport by a local representative who will transport you to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, a long fertile river valley surrounded by snow capped peaks that lies between Cusco and Machu Picchu.

Visit remarkable Incan sites and small towns at Pisac, and do some hiking down from the ruins. Afterward you will stop for a lunch at a great small restaurant founded by a renowned local chef. Your private guide will be there to help you make the most of the entire experience.

Day 3

Sacred Valley (Pumamarca / Ollantaytambo)


Hotel Sol y Luna

Hotel Sol y Luna

Includes: Breakfast, Lunch

Hike to the Pumamarca Ruins, a less-visited Incan site that has managed to stay off the typical tourist route.

Enter an area still steeped in Andean tradition; it’s a great place to explore on foot and appreciate the Andes and the way of life of the people who have lived there for thousands of years.

You will also visit the ruins and town of Ollantaytambo, one of the only towns that has maintained the same layout since Incan times.
