The Adventure Begins Here
The Sacred Valley of the Incas, also known as the Urubamba Valley, is a fertile, winding valley on the outskirts of the Cusco region, following the course of the Urubamba river. As a center for agriculture, it was an essential piece in the puzzle of the Inca Empire, and today Sacred Valley tours attract history buffs and adrenaline junkies alike.
The Starting Place for Adventure
Located at a lower altitude than Cusco, Good Life Expeditions recommends that you head straight to the Sacred Valley, the perfect place to acclimatize, before continuing on to Machu Picchu and finally the lofty city of Cusco. Some of our favorite Sacred Valley hotels offer tranquil escapes – to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the valley and as a base for outdoor adventure.
The Sacred Valley is home to some impressive archaeological sites like the mysterious ruins at Moray and the fortresses of Ollantaytambo and Pisac. The valley is scattered with picturesque weaving villages. At the Center for Traditional Textiles in the town of Chinchero, you can learn about traditional textiles, made with natural dyes and techniques passed down through the generations, and purchase souvenirs from the local weavers. Nearby, the natural salt pans of Maras are an extraordinary site and fantastic photo opportunity. A Sacred Valley tour organized by Good Life Expeditions takes in all of these Sacred Valley highlights, depending on your interests.
