The Adventure Begins Here

Sacred Valley

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 Inca Empire’s puzzle. 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 you head straight to the Sacred Valley, the perfect place to acclimatize, before continuing to Machu Picchu and finally to the lofty city of Cusco. Some of our favorite Sacred Valley hotels offer tranquil escapes to relax, enjoy the valley’s natural beauty, and outdoor adventure.

The Sacred Valley is home to some impressive archaeological sites like the mysterious ruins at Moray, Ollantaytambo, and Pisac’s fortresses. At the Center for Traditional Textiles in Chinchero, you can learn about traditional textiles made with natural dyes and techniques passed down through the generations. Purchase souvenirs from the local weavers.

Nearby, the natural salt pans of Maras are an extraordinary site and fantastic photo opportunity. The valley is scattered with picturesque weaving villages. A Sacred Valley tour organized by Good Life Expeditions takes all of these Sacred Valley highlights, depending on your interests.
