• Here bikers will change in to the kit provided by us (gloves and helmets) following a 20 minute briefing by our experienced tour guide.

• Then the fun begins… freewheeling down quiet but challenging dirt roads, passing by ever-changing landscapes with ice capped mountains in the background. You will not want to catch your breath until the first pit stop in Alfamayo, some 2 hours from your starting point.

Day 02: Santa Maria to Santa Teresa – Inca Trail (B) (L) (D)

 

• Breakfast

• Rise and shine at 5.30am, shake off any weariness from your limbs with the finest indigenous coffee prepared by your landlady.

• Under dawning skies you´ll begin your walk which gets progressively steeper until arriving at a welcoming family restaurant in Santa Rosa, where you can relax in hammocks admiring the coca plantations and enjoying refreshments while being entertained by the family monkey.

• After a short while you will board the real Inca Trail, which winds around precipitous slopes and sheer drops for approximately half a miles – be warned this is not for people who suffer from vertigo! The descent continues for just over two hours until you reach Qellomayo village, where you will have lunch. Make sure you have saved enough energy for the final stretch, a riverside walk along the mighty Vilcanota River until reaching the hot springs of Colcamayo one of the best in the region.

You will be rewarded for your efforts with a view of Machu Picchu from the top of Llactapata, flanked by the towering peak of the majestic Salkantay.

• Your picnic here is unlikely to be forgotten for long time; gazing down on all those tourists who took the traditional Inca route – probably because they didn’t know about your route!
