Itinerary

PACKAGE DETAILS

Half-day Mountain Bike Tour with Visits to 4 Archaeological Sites

We will pick you up from your hotel at 9 am and travel by private transport to the Qorao pass. From here, we will get bicycles and bike to Tambomachay, which is the first archeological site around the mountain of Cusco.

Next, we will continue cycling to Pucapucara, Temple of the Moon, Qenqo, and finally explore the beautiful Fortaleza of Sacsayhuaman.

Along our journey, we will pass amazing landscapes and small villages, where some local farmers will be very curious to see us biking! In the afternoon, we will finish our bike tour and end in the main square of Cuzco.

Where we will be exploring: Cuzco is a city in southeastern Peru, near the Urubamba valley (Sacred Valley). Cuzco was the capital of the Inca empire.

Many believe that the city was planned to be shaped like a Puma. The city had two sectors, the urin and hanan, which were further divided into the four provinces, Chinchaysuyo (NW), Antisuyo (NE), Contisuyo (SW), and Collasuyo (SE). A road led from each of these quarters to the corresponding province of the empire.

Each local leader was required to build a house in the city and live part of the year in Cuzco, but only in the part of Cuzco that corresponded to the provinces of the empire where he had territory. According to Inca legend, the city was built by Sapac Inca Pachacuti, a man who transformed the Kingdom of Cuzco from a sleepy city-state into the vast empire of Tahantinsuyu. Archaeological evidence, however, demonstrates a slower more organic growth to the city beginning before Pachacuti.

NOTE:  The changing weather of Cusco
The rainy season lasts from December to March. On some days the sky is still blue and allows for a nice bike ride.
Directly following the rainy season, usually between April to June, the mountains are completely covered with snow and the landscape is completely covered in fresh green and perfect to capture beautiful photos.
From July to November, the weather is mostly sunny.

Bikers should be relatively acclimatized to being over 3000 meters. The day before the tour, all participants will meet with the mountain bike guide in our office or at the hotel. He will give an introduction to the tour and you can check the quality of the bikes and equipment that we will use on the tour.
