We invite you to come fly with the wind, cycle along Andean terraces, kayak under snowcapped peaks and trek the ancient mountain pathways of the Incas. Discover remote villages, colonial churches and mysterious heritage sites on horseback or by quad bike. Home to Andean civilization for more than 500 years, the Sacred Valley is also a veritable treasure trove of historic sites including Machu Picchu and vibrant, thriving cultural traditions. For those who prefer their cultural immersion in the kitchen, we offer an array of the Sacred Valley’s most palatable pleasures.
A natural playground for adventure lovers, the Sacred Valley offers adrenaline pumping activities above and on the ground, on two or four wheels, by native Paso horse, on foot and even on the water.

In the Sacred Valley
Long known as the gateway to Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley is actually home to a rich diversity of cultural offerings, beginning with our own Sol y Luna artisans. Elsewhere in the Valley, the last ‘living’ Inca civilization endures and testify to the nurturing relationship between man and land here in Sacred Valley since ancient times.
Sol y Luna hosts a daily show demonstrating the elegance of their lilting and gentle gait to the rhythm of the Marinera, an Peruvian dance emblematic of Spanish Criollo traditions.
Sol y Luna invites a group of talented local women to demonstrate textile production, from the untangling of the natural wool fibers, to spinning and coloring with natural dyes made of flowers, roots and herbs according to ancestral techniques and preparation of the loom.
Those who attend this interactive workshop will be able to take part with our artisans in the different stages of pottery-making and can take away the piece they will have produced together with the memories of this pleasant experience.
In the relaxed coziness of our Wayra terrace, Sacred Valley’s Cusi Wasi theater company brings to life the myths, ritual and legends of Andean civilization.
To connect our guests through all the senses to the exceptional flavors of the Sacred Valley, Chef Nacho and our culinary team lead in-depth, palate led adventures into this fertile landscape and among our friends, the traditional Andean farmers growing naturally organic produce in ways little changed since the Inca Empire.
This pleasant, relaxed outing with our Chef to a nearby farm and the local market leads into the heart of Peruvian cuisine.
A fully interactive session held in the Wayra kitchen, this is a hands-on opportunity to work side by side with our Sol y Luna chefs.
Take your turn with the carving knife or simply continue sipping as the instruction moves on to indigenous appetizers like ceviche, duo de ocopas and quinoa soup, followed by a classic Andean lomo saltado.
Kunata Wasi exhibits Sacred Valley’s finest and most sophisticated folk art, typically the work of anonymous hands expressing the lives of the Andean people. Original works by our favorite contemporary Peruvian artists such as Federico Bauer, Jaime Liebana and ceramicist Marilyn Denemostier, taking inspiration from Andean popular culture are also on display.
Hummingbirds and butterflies flutter among our 25 acres of private gardens abundant with indigenous flowers and native bird species.
