Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco - Abra Malaga - Santa Maria

Stop At: Cusco Cathedral, Cusco, Cusco Region
At 6:00am we will start the tour with a transfer from your hotel to Alfamayuc. Our destination for the day will be the small village of Santa Maria at 1,430 meters. On our way, we’ll be able to see sloppy hills and snowcapped peaks of the Mountains. We will have some opportunities to take some pictures along the way as well. We will arrive in Alfamayuc and go on riding for a number of hours by bicycle to Santa Maria. The 3 - 4 hour downhill ride is exhilarating and relaxing at the same time.
When we arrive, we will have some free time to rest or explore before having dinner. Overnight

Day 2: Santa Maria - Santa Teresa

Stop At: Inca Jungle, Cusco, Cusco Region
We begin the day with a healthy breakfast, and then we will walk through the tropical forest for a short period along the road before taking a trail through coffee and coca plantations and passing through farms which grow tropical fruits. After climbing for a while we will connect with a "tropical Inca trail", an original Inca Path.
There are great views along this section as we descend down some impressive Inca stairs while admiring the canyon of the Vilcanota River. Please note, this is VERY challenging for those with vertigo or a fear of heights! There will be many photo opportunities on the way. We will also have a chance to visit the local Coca Plantation. At last, when we arrive in Santa Teresa, we will be able to enjoy the hot springs which is optional (not included in price). We will relax there until it is time for dinner. We will spend overnight in a nice local hostel in Santa Teresa.
