Tour Details

Bike Tour Maras Moray in Cusco offers a fantastic half day mountain biking experience in the Sacred Valley of Incas. Riding along the Urubamba river with a backdrop of stunning Andean Landscapes dotted with small villages, this is a lifetime experience. 

You can do the tour while acclimatising in Cusco before your trip to Machu Picchu. Not only will this be a good activity to help you acclimatise but also you will learn a lot about Inca and pre Inca history. 

Maras Moray Mountain Bike tour is quite a relaxed experience. The tour includes all essential gears, bikes and a professional guide. 

Both Maras and Moray are a prominent part of the Sacred Valley. The Incas and Pre Incas relied on these sites for their income. 

Maras:

Maras Salt Terraces have a series of salt pools which have been in use since Pre Inca times. This has been passed down generation to generation. Salt Farmers here continue to practise the traditional salt farming methods.

Moray:

The circular terraces of Moray was the blue eyed baby of Incas. This is where they experimented with the growth conditions of crops. 

There are different levels dug into the ground. Each level has a different temperature. This site was considered by Incas as an agricultural laboratory.

Itinerary

Bike tour to Maras Moray

The half day tour starts with a pickup from your hotel in Cusco. We will then be driving you along the Sacred Valley. The route offers great views of the Andes and farming villages. 

We will then be stopping at Cruzpata. Here our crew will be waiting for you with bikes and gears. 

You will then have some time to get used to the bike. We will then begin with a gradual downhill Peru Mountain Bike Tour along the Huaypo Lake to the archaeological site of Moray, Maras and the salineras or salt terraces.

The guide will be leading the group on a bike. The van will be trailing behind. If in case you feel sick or tired to bike, you can always get back in the van. 

Our guide will be giving you a detailed tour of each site. You will understand how farming and agriculture has made an impact on life today. 

Please note, in order to protect the salt mines from contamination, local authorities have imposed a restriction on tourists entering the salt terraces. However, you will have a nice view from the nearby view point. 

After the tour, we will be riding to Pichingoto. Here our crew will be collecting the bikes. We will then be driving you back to Cusco city.
