Day 1 Cusco / Santa Maria

Today we leave Cuzco between 7:00 - 7:30am to journey by road in a van making our first stop after 1.5 hours in Ollantaytambo where we can have a quick breakfast and buy some snacks. Then we continue driving for another 1.5 hours up to the Malaga High Pass (4,350 meters) where our guide will provide us with a safety briefing before we begin our adventurous 2.5 hour bike ride down into the lush and humid jungle. We will see Huamanmarka Archaeological site along the way, cruise through fruit plantations and over rivers before arriving to Santa Maria village (1,400 meters) where you will enjoy your night at a basic but cozy hostel.

Day 2 Santa Teresa

After an early morning breakfast, we will begin our day of hiking through the jungle mountains to observe beautiful pristine landscapes, abundant flora and fauna and friendly local people. Have lunch halfway during the trek and relax breathing fresh mountain air. In the afternoon we will arrive to Santa Teresa village (1,680 meters) where we will stay overnight in a hostel.

Day 3 Aguas Calientes

Take an easy 3-hour hike along the train tracks from Santa Teresa to Hydroelectric Station where you will stop for lunch. Continue 3 more hours on foot to reach Aguas Calientes town where we will have free time to relax our sore bodies in the hot springs for a well deserved bath (10 soles extra). There are internet cafes, cafes with board games and cards, plenty of shops and places to relax there as well. (Most people hike this portion of the trek but there is an optional train ride from Hydroelectric Station to Aguas Calientes for $18 USD if you're feeling tired).

Day 4 Machu Picchu / Cusco

We will catch one of the first buses (05:30 am) to Machu Picchu (25-minute ride) in order to appreciate the magnificent city as the mist dissipates at sunrise. A walking tour (approximately 2 hours) is given by your guide and after this you can explore the mysterious city by yourselves. If you still have energy you can also climb Huayna Picchu (2720m/8890ft)!!! Return to Aguas Calientes where you can visit the local marketplace right next to the train tracks and shop until the train whistle blows, signaling your return to Ollantaytambo. From Ollantaytambo, you will take a bus for the last section of highway to Cuzco arriving back around 10:30pm. You will be dropped off at the Plaza San Francisco. Please make your own way to the hostel of your choice upon arrival.
