Horseback Riding is a beautiful and unique way to explore part of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. While not having to walk, you can relax and enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the Green Valley in its fullest bloom. Visiting the Maras Salt Mines and the ancient Inca Terraces of Moray, you will also satisfy your urge to know more about the Inca culture and the past times. As well, you will have loads of fun riding your horse with your family and friends – a great experience you don’t want to miss while staying around Cusco.


Day 1

We will start our Horseback Riding Tour in the small town of Paucarbamba. You receive your safety equipment and a small demonstration of the basic instructions of how to ride a horse (in case you don’t have any experience). From here, we will ride uphill until we reach the high mountains of the Sacred Valley while enjoying beautiful panoramic views of the snow-capped mountains of Verónica and Chicón. After a 3-hour ride, we will reach the archaeological site of Moray: We will discover the Inca Laboratory Terraces and then continue our ride to the small town of Maras, where we have our box lunch and a short break. Afterward, we continue descending to the Maras Salt Mines. We will stay here for a short while, enjoying the great ambiance and visiting the various tourist shops. Finally, we will finish our tour in Tarabamba where our transport service will be waiting for us to transport you back to Ollantaytambo or Urubamba.
