Hiking in the Sacred Valley, Peru
While the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu is known for its legendary hikes, visitors can cross scenic terrain in nearby Sacred Valley with Explora Valle Sagrado. This high-end, all-inclusive resort (opened July 1, 2016) challenges travelers with daily experiences, with more than 20 options to choose from. The most physically demanding (yet rewarding) hike is 8 hours and 11 miles through the vast, scenic landscape, crossing the Urubamba mountain chain and over a trail that goes along the second highest peak in the region, the Sawasiray, at an altitude of 10,900 feet high. The resort also features a fantastic spa where calf muscles can get proper attention post-hike.
Three-night, all-inclusive package is $1,910 per person for a double room (inclusive of transportation, all guided excursions, meals and alcohol). explora.comBack to top
