North west of Cusco, the Sacred Valley is one of the most beautiful and historically important parts of Peru. The Valley was one of the bases of Inca civilisation, the river that winds its way through believed to be aligned with the cosmos. Jacada Travel will help you explore this region of Peru in real luxury, unlocking its secrets and providing insight into its fascinating history.
Several of the Inca’s finest works were built in this region making it a fantastic place to take in the ancient culture of Peru. Explore the fortress town of Ollantaytambo, the ancient Inca terraces at Moray and the salt terraces at Maras.
The valley is also home to many indigenous people living the same way they have been for centuries and it’s possible to visit local markets and communities.
The Hiram Bingham and the Vistadome luxury trains depart from Cusco and stop in the Sacred Valley on their way to Machu Picchu. Speak to your Travel Designer about incorporating the Sacred Valley into your luxury tour of Peru.
