EXPLORA Sacred Valley, Peru
Located at the foot of the mountains where the Inca civilization once proliferated and zigzagged through the calm waters of the Urubamba River, Sacred Valley brings together a unique blend of natural beauty that has attracted explorers and travelers for hundreds of years.
The capital of the powerful Inca empire was built in the heart of the Peruvian highlands: the city of Cusco, surrounded by majestic mountain landscapes and fertile valleys. Among them, Sacred Valley was chosen by the Incas to build some of its most important architectural works and to develop the complex irrigated terraces that, until today, are used for food cultivation.
Located between Cusco and the sacred city of Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley extends along the footprint of the Urubamba River, covering different colonial towns still marked by the legacy of the Incas and is considered the place that has given rise to the best corn grains of Peru.
The Explora Valle Sagrado hotel offers more than 30 explorations, which can be done on foot, by van or by bicycle, for travelers to discover from traditional towns, barely touched by the force of globalization, to ancient ruins impeccably preserved by the passage of time and lagoons at the foot of the snowy peaks.
Get carried away by a place of intrepid landscapes and blend with a culture full of history that will make you live unforgettable experiences.
