Highlighted Experience

SACRED VALLEY This 70-mile narrow strip of land, in the Peruvian Andes runs nearly from the old imperial capital of Cusco to the mysterious citadel of Machu Picchu. With a backdrop of the snow-capped Andes, the fertile river valley winds below ancient agricultural terraces and numerous Incan ruins. Many locals still speak Quechua - the language of the Incas. They continue to grow corn, raise llamas, alpacas and weave beautifully colored textiles much as their ancestors did before the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadors five centuries ago.
