This adventure-lover’s experience also features hotel pickup, three nights of guesthouse accommodations, guide, bus and train transfers, three days of meals and snacks, entrance fees and all necessary biking, ziplining and rafting equipment.
What to Expect
Day 1: Cusco to Malaga High Pass, Mountain Biking to Santa Maria Village and Rafting Activity (L/D)
After a hotel pickup between 6:40 - 7:00am, you will head on a 1.5-hour ride to Ollantaytambo. Here you can have a quick breakfast and buy snacks. Then, you'll continue for 1.5 hours more towards the Malaga High Pass (2.7-miles/4,350-meters) where your adventure begins. After a safety briefing, you will enjoy a thrilling 2.5-hour bike ride down into the lush and humid jungle. You will see Huamanmarka archaeological site along the way, before arriving to Santa Maria village at around 2:30pm. Here, you will enjoy a rafting adventure of 2.5 hours down Class III and IV rapids on the Urubamba River. You will spend the night at a basic, rustic guesthouse in Santa Maria.

Day 2: Trek to Santa Teresa Village (17 kms) (B/L/D)
After morning breakfast, you will enjoy a day of hiking through the jungle mountains to observe beautiful pristine landscapes, abundant flora and fauna and friendly local people. Halfway during the trek you will enjoy lunch and relax as you take in the fresh mountain air. In the afternoon, you will reach Santa Teresa village (1-mile/1,680-meters) where you will stay overnight in a guesthouse. (Optional hot springs at an extra cost).

Day 3: Zip-line Activity and Trek to Aguas Calientes (B/L/D)
Today, you will enjoy a 2-hour morning canopy excursion as you fly through the treetops on South America's highest and Peru's first canopy zip-line. Traverse over 1.5-miles (2,500-meters) of cables with the longest ride covering .25-miles (400-meters) and the highest at one-mile (150-meters) high. Then, you will hike for 3 hours down an easy trail along the train tracks from Santa Teresa to the Hydroelectric power station. Here, you will stop for lunch and then hike for 3 more hours on foot to reach Aguas Calientes town. You will spend the night at a cozy hotel for a well-deserved shower and good night's sleep.
