We will pick you up from your hotel at approximately 7:30 am. After we pick you up you will take our transport through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, which will take about 4 and a half hours until we reach the Malaga Pass (Abra Malaga) where we will start our bicycle adventure (subject to modifications due to climate conditions such as rain, snow, etc.). We will then descend on bicycle for about 2 to 3 hours until we arrive at the town of Huamán Marca. Here we will leave the bicycles and take our mini van to Santa Maria. Throughout the day we will be able to observe the typical vegetation of a cloud forest as well as many incredible views of the Sacred Valley. When we arrive to Santa Maria we will spend the night in a hotel.

After lunch, we will begin our trek which will take about 9 hours in total and include many ascents and descents. Along the way we will observe a range of vegetation as we pass through beautiful local villages, and we will also have the opportunity to use part of the ancient Inca Trail that is perfectly preserved. We will also observe much wild fauna and different types of native birds. We will then arrive at the hot springs of Cocalmayo where we can enjoy a relaxing hot soak in the thermal baths. Finally we will arrive at the town of Santa Teresa where we will spend the second night in a hotel.
In Santa Teresa we will begin the day with breakfast at 6:30 am and be ready to continue our hike for 3 hours towards Hidroeléctrica where we will have lunch in a restaurant. After lunch we will continue our hike for 3 more hours towards Aguas Calientes where we will stay in a hostel and have dinner at 6.30 pm.
