Gentle cycling through farming communities
Leave the bus behind and cycle through the Sacred Valley. You will follow quiet, traffic free roads into the heart of this rural area. While many people visit the Sacred Valley, few every venture to the far side of the river to get a real taste of village life.
This ride is perfect for families: its versatility means it can be easily adapted to suit every level and age. It’s an incredibly scenic ride through the non-tourist side of the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
You begin with a fifty minute drive to Pisac. At this small town based in the Sacred Valley of the Incas we can stop for a stroll around the lovely plaza and artisan market stalls.
Here you unload the bikes, kit up and take a dirt road to the Andean village of Taray and on along the valley. This lovely route passes local villages and old haciendas, where traditional farming methods are still used. All set beneath the backdrop of the snow-capped Urubamba mountain range.
You have a support vehicle on hand which will set up your lunch at a scenic spot. After lunch you can carry on through the villages of Qoya, Lamay and Calca. If feeling strong you could continue to Urubamba or even Ollantaytambo.
