Located between Cusco and Machu Picchu, explora Valle Sagrado was designed as the base from where you can explore a remote and amazing site: the Sacred Valley of the Incas. All our programs include accommodation, transfers, meals and beverages, and a selection of more than 20 exclusive explorations developed by explora.

Through our explorations, you can visit from Cusco to Machu Picchu, passing by remote villages, archaeological sites such as Ollaytantambo, Moray, Chinchero and Pisac, and this region’s high peaks, like La Verónica or Incañan.

Built amid Inca remains and terraces, our hotel is located in one of the remotest haciendas of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The lands have an ancient cornfield and the Casa de Baños Pumacahua, a colonial mansion that belonged to Peru’s hero, Mateo Pumacahua, and the current location of the hotel’s Spa. All of this makes explora Valle Sagrado a unique site in the region.

Sacred Valley –located at the heart of the ancient Inca Empire–is a particular mix of natural and cultural beauty that has attracted explores and travelers for hundreds of years. Located at the foot of the mountains where the Inca civilization once flourished and zigzagging around the waters of Urubamba River, Sacred Valley is a place with endless possibilities for explorations.

Its unique geography, the Inca remains and the authenticity of the local people inspired us to create paths that will let you discover all its charms. With over 20 explorations, that can be completed either on foot, by van or bike, our travelers discover from traditional towns barely touched by the force of globalization to ancient ruins perfectly preserved from the passing of time, and lagoons at the foot of snow covered mountains.

Our explorations, always led by a competent guide from our School of Guides, are made in groups of up to eight travelers and carried out at three different levels of geographical differentiation: valley, plateau and mountain. In order to really soak up this destination, we think you need to travel around these three areas. In the Urubamba River valley we visit Pisac, Ollantaytambo, and Moray, among other archaeological sites; in the plateau, we go to the Huaypo Lake, we travel around local trails between lagoons, farm communities, and cornfields; we also visit mountain peaks, an area not well known by tourists.  The altitude of our explorations ranges between 2,800 and 4,700 meters above sea level (9,186 and 16,404 f.a.s.l.) and consequently, some travelers need prior acclimatization. We suggest beginning with explorations at less altitude in order to scale up slowly towards the mountain peaks.

For those of us who have experienced full day explorations, some of the greatest attractions in the area were the Machu Picchu* sanctuary and the city of Cusco. If our travelers choose to take one of these options, we recommend a minimum of four nights. Less time is just not enough to have an exploration experience in which you can really get to know the diversity of this valley, with many places yet left to discover. A six night program is a good option to achieve a thorough knowledge of the Valle Sagrado and Cusco region.

* Due to the site’s restrictions, the Machu Picchu exploration –a main attraction in the area and a National Park with restricted access– combines explora and third party services. These have an additional cost of USD 300 for adults and USD 250 for children under 11. Please confirm with our reservation team with at least 30 days in advance to your arrival. Three-night programs do not allow booking for this exploration.
