Explora Sacred Valley

Adventure across the Sacred Valley of the Incas

A remote lodge set on Inca terraces

Tucked away in one of the Sacred Valley’s most secluded haciendas, next to the tiny village of Urquillos and close to many of the area’s most important Inca settlements, Explora Sacred Valley is the wonderful hub from which to explore this incredible region of Peru.

Carefully built within an ancient corn plantation set on Inca terraces, 50 rooms – six of which are suites – drink in views of the surrounding fields and mountains. Each is modern in its simplicity and thoroughly comfortable, allowing you to rest and recharge after a busy day of exploring the lodge’s remote surroundings.

For dining Explora Sacred Valley offers cuisine inspired by the Andes and its diversity of products, ingredients and traditions. Through the lodge’s gastronomic experiences you’ll be able to connect with the territory inhabited here and enjoy the local culture straight from your plate.

For relaxation you can slip into the outdoor swimming pool or relax in any of the hot tubs, the massage room, steam rooms and saunas. All of these are all set within Pumacahua House, a carefully preserved colonial building on the property. A communal dining room, bar, library and living area sit at the heart of the lodge.

During your stay you can discover the area with a selection of over 20 exploration activities. These include a range of hikes to colonial towns, snowcapped mountains, high altitude lagoons and Inca archaeological sites. You can also enjoy half and full day mountain bike rides and tours to Cusco, Machu Picchu or more off-the-beaten track locations.
