Cusco - Eco Quechua Lodge: You’ll be picked up at your hotel and taken on a scenic tour of the Sacred Valley, before arriving in Santa Maria for lunch. In the afternoon you’ll trek to Eco Quechua Lodge, where a candlelit dinner in the riverside restaurant awaits.
Llactapata Inca Trail: Starting early, you’ll visit a local coffee plantation to find out more about sustainable growing practices and how coffee has helped to boost the area socially and economically.
Leaving the plantation behind, you’ll embark on an uphill hike towards the Llactapata Pass, where you’ll catch a glimpse of Machu Picchu from the south west. After lunch, you’ll complete the 5-6 hour hike, descending through bamboo forests, spotting orchids and more coffee plantations en route.
Machu Picchu: On your final day you’ll be able to take a tour around the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, left to crumble after the Spanish Conquest and only rediscovered in 1911. Your tour leader will take you around the site in the morning, before heading back to Cusco in the afternoon.
