Itinerary

Receive a morning pickup from your hotel in Cusco, after which you’ll be transferred for 50 minutes into the Peruvian countryside, passing through the typical town of Chincheroen route. Make your first stop in the small town of Maras, offering you the chance to catch a glimpse of daily life in one of the region’s small towns. Wander the streets of this typical village and sample some “Chicha,” a Peruvian-style corn beverage.

Leaving Maras behind, you’ll drive for another 30 minutes to Moray, an Inca-era archaeological site. Learn about the design and purpose of this circular style terrace system, a complex that was built by the ancient civilization as a testing ground for various micro-climates and different types of agricultural crops.

You’ll have one hour on site. After your Maras visit, make a stop at the “Salineras,” a collection of salt mines used since the Inca period to extract salt. The pattern formed by the area’s range of more than 3,000 small salt pools makes for a visually-arresting view for visitors. After your visit to the Salineras, you’ll receive a ride back to your Cusco hotel.
