Join us on a four-day adventure from Cusco to two of the most magical corners of the Andes: Rainbow Mountain and the Inca citadel of Macchu Picchu.
Cusco, Rainbow Mountain, and Machu Picchu 4-Day Tour
Day 1: Cusco
In the morning, we will be waiting for you at the arrivals terminal of Cusco airport. From there, we head to the hotel so you can settle into your room and relax ready for the adventure ahead.
Once you are settled, we'll take a guided tour of Cusco and its four ruins. First, it's the Temple of Qoricancha, known as the Temple of the Sun and one of the most important religious centres of the Inca Empire. Then we continue the tour and you'll discover the fortress of Sacsayhuamán, the Qenqo shrine and the Puca Pucara or Red Fort watchtower.
Finally, we will visit Tambomachay, the so-called Inca Bath, and end the tour at the hotel in Cusco at 7 pm.
Day 2: Rainbow Mountain
We will leave the hotel very early to start a two and a half hour journey to the town of Anchi Pacha, where we'll enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast. After eating, we will begin a walk along the Quesyuno trail, located more than 4000 metres above sea level.
Along the route, which takes around two and a half hours, we'll have impressive views of the mighty Ausangate mountain and, if we are lucky, we will encounter some llamas, the typical animals of the Andes. Finally, we'll reach one of the most fascinating places in Peru: Rainbow Mountain. You'll be enchanted by its spectacular range of colours and the legends that surround this iconic natural wonder.
At the end of the guided route around the colourful mountain, we'll climb back down and head to eat at a local restaurant. After this, we will return to Cusco, arriving there at 7 pm.
Day 3: Machu Picchu
No trip to Peru should miss Machu Picchu and this is your opportunity to see one of the wonders of the world. We'll leave the hotel in Cusco at around 4 am and make our way to Ollantaytambo train station. There, we will board a train and set off on a spectacular railway route through stunning mountain landscapes to the town of Agua Calientes.
Once in Aguas Calientes, we'll catch the bus up to one of the wonders of the modern world: Machu Picchu, often called the lost city of the Inca Empire. We'll enjoy a fascinating guided tour of the ancient citadel and learn all about the secrets hidden in its ruins.
We'll finish the tour returning to Aguas Calientes where we'll indulge in a delicious lunch before taking the train back to Ollantaytambo and from there a bus to Cusco.
Day 4: Cusco
On the last day, you will have the morning free to explore the city of Cusco. You can visit emblematic places such as the Plaza de Armas, the San Blas neighborhood, the Piedra de Doce Angulos or "Twelve-Sided Stone", and the local San Pedro market.
We'll meet up again in the afternoon to take you to Cusco airport where our fantastic 4-day adventure finishes.
This tour includes 3 nights accommodation with breakfast, at the San Blas Hotel in Cusco, or similar. When making the booking, you can choose between staying on your own in a single room or sharing a double room.
