Machu Picchu Biking and Trekking  (04 Days / 03 Nights)

Get to Machu Picchu, combining mountain biking and hiking, in a mixture of adventure, ecotourism and culture, has converted itself in a new attraction, with the Cusco / Quillabamba asphalted road itinerary, linking with the village of Santa Teresa; the other access way to Machu Picchu, due to its proximity and because it offers you, in addition, alternatives of adventure tourism, such as canopy, cyclotourism, rafting and Cocalmayo´s Thermo-medicinal Baths.

Machu Picchu Biking and Trekking tour is a mix of emotions, in which we’ll travel by bus to the Málaga Mountain Pass (4,350 m .a.s.l.).

Then, we’ll go downhill on mountain bikes, on the stretch to the subtropical jungle, to finally hike to Machu Picchu Pueblo.
