Start with pickup your hotel around 8:00 AM and enjoy a scenic 1-hour ride until you reach the Via Ferrata base.

What people are saying about Sacred Valley

Best trip we did, and worth every penny. Word of warning, the description is wrong on the timing. It takes about 1hr 40 to get to base camp... The entire activity is NOT five hours (you'll be gone from 8 am-5pm) which gave me a heart attack because we planned it on the day we were flying out and expected to be back at 1 p.m. but our guide got us a car to return to Cusco to make sure we got to the airport on time. Best tour we had during our time in Peru, hands down!

An amazing experience with incredible guides! Highly recommended
