Did you know that Cusco means “Navel of the World” in Quechuan? Both the entrance to the Sacred Valley and one of the most interesting and well preserved Spanish colonial cities in America, this fascinating place is the result of its layers of history and culture. Everything in this city located 3,400m above sea level is unique; keep in mind this once was the capital of the Inca Empire and the city that saw the Spanish conquistador, Francisco Pizarro.
Join us on a unique adventure that will show you those famous places you don’t want to miss but also the everyday life of those living there. Visit the world-famous Machupicchu, learn more about the Incas at different archaeological sites, join a sacred ritual known as “Willaq Uma” to connect with nature through Inca deities, stay at the Mullak’s Misminay community where you will listen to local stories by a bonfire and learn about their ways of life - Do not forget to join them in thanking Pachamama (mother earth) for all that she gives us! Do all of this and much more in a country proud of its cultures, breathtaking landscapes and delicious cuisine.
