ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Start of Program
Sep 12, 2014
Program begins at the hotel in the Urumbamba Valley (Sacred Valley) on day 2 in Peru with the Orientation.
You will be staying at the Casa Andina Private Collection Valle Sagrado that night.
Location: Urumbamba Valley (Sacred Valley)
Nearest airport: Cusco
Transportation to site: A group arrival transfer is organized for all participants who purchased an air inclusive program and arrive on the group date. Other participants are encouraged to take the group transfer if their flights arrive in time. The transfer to the first program hotel exceeds an hour in length. For this reason, we strongly suggest participants plan for flights to arrive in time to take the group transfer. If this is not possible, participants may contact Road Scholar Travel Services to arrange a private transfer. Taking a taxi from the airport is not advisable as it will be very costly, and it may be difficult to locate a taxi who will travel an hour from the airport. IMPORTANT: The flight from Lima to Cusco at the beginning of the program is not included in the program cost. If you have booked your air through Road Scholar, we have arranged this for you. If you are arranging your own air, please make sure to take this flight into consideration. The group arrival flight is LA 2047 LIM-CUZ. It arrives into Cusco at 10:35AM on September 12th. Your group leader, Juan Carlos, will be on this flight with you.

Nearest airport: La Paz
Transportation to site: A group departure transfer is organized for all participants who purchased an air inclusive program and depart on the group date. Other participants may take the group transfer as long as their flights depart at or around the same time as the group flights. The airport is about a 20 minute drive from the hotel in La Paz. Participants unable to take the group transfer will be able to arrange a taxi to the airport. Your group leader and the hotel concierge can help you arrange this.

Type: Four-Star Hotel

Description: The Sacred Valley’s most complete hotel: a mountain chalet-styled retreat with panoramic Andes views from every room and every angle. On more than 8 landscaped acres (3 hectares), it breathes an air of tranquility and relaxation. Unique among Sacred Valley hotels – most of which remain isolated in the valley, offering precious little for guests to do – it contains an extraordinary, full-service “Sacred Spa”, a domed Planetarium & Observatory for stargazing in the massive Southern Hemisphere sky, and gourmet restaurant and bar. The 85 inviting, spacious rooms overlook the property’s extensive gardens and feature either private balconies or sunny sitting areas. Equidistant between Urubamba and Ollantaytambo, in the Sacred Valley of Cusco, the hotel is perfectly positioned for easy access to the valley’s abundant attractions and incomparable Inca ruins, including world-renowned Machu Picchu.
