Home Tours Cultural tours Machu Picchu 2D/1N


The ancient Inca city Machu Picchu is situated behind the Sacred Valley and is hidden in the mountain tops of the Andes. A visit to Machu Picchu is for most travellers in Peru the highlight of their trip. You can visit Machu Picchu in an organized 2 or 4 days trek or in a 1 or 2 days tour.

With the 2 days tour, you leave from Cusco by car to Hidroelectrica. This is an 6 hour ride through a beautiful scenery. First the car is climbing up to Abra Malaga, a mountain pass on 4350 meters. From here you have an incredible view, because the jungle area starts at the other side of the mountain pass. Here we go down into the jungle valley.

In one of the villages there we will have a lunch break. When we arrive in Hidroelectrica, we will take the train to Aguas Calientes. When we have time you can visit the hot baths and after that we will have dinner in Aguas Calientes. We stay here for the night and the next morning we will take the bus climbing up to Machu Picchu. There you will have a guided tour of 2 or 3 hours by an English speaking guide and after the tour you have some free time to climb Waynu Picchu, to visit the temple of the moon or to take pictures. Then you can climb down to Aguas Calientes or you can buy a busticket. In the afternoon we take the train back to Hidroelectrica, from where we drive back by car to Cusco.
