We´ll pick you up at your hotel around 4:00 a.m., to go to Ollantaytambo train station, to catch the train that will take us to Km. 104 of the railroad, where we´ll start our walk in a landscape of sub-tropical forest.

Then, we´ll ascend towards Inti Punku, “The Sun´s Gate” for a one hour walk along a path made of flat stones, on the edge of mountainous cliffs, where we´ll be able to enjoy the first panoramic view of the majestic “Machu Picchu”. From Inti Punku, we´ll descend towards Machu Picchu and once there, we´ll take the bus towards Aguas Calientes, to settle in a previously selected hotel, enjoy the hot springs and spend the night.


Early in the morning, we´ll go up with the first bus to Machu Picchu, to enjoy the dawn in this magic place, before the arrival of other tourists from Cusco. Once there, we´ll be able to enjoy the tranquillity of the Incas´ Lost City, on a 2 ½ hour tour with our guide, followed by some free time to walk around the Sanctuary or to ascend to Mount Huayna Picchu, where one can observe spectacular views of the whole complex of Machu Picchu, as well as valleys and mountains that surround it or we can visit the Temple of the Moon and the fabulous Inca´s Bridge.
