Traditional villages, rural landscapes and hilltop Inca ruins bring you closer to Peru's fascinating past and present.
The Urubamba Valley, known as The Sacred Valley of the Incas lies just north of the Inca capital of Cusco and today is one of the best places in Peru to see Inca traditions and the descendants of a once great civilisation. The dramatic landscape is charactarised by steep mountains, snow-covered peaks and traditional agriculture, small towns come to life in colourful bustling markets and outstanding Inca ruins, particularly those at either end of the valley in Pisaq and Ollantaytambo, demonstrate the enduring brilliance of the Inca people and their customs and ways of life. The people still speak the native Quechua language and conserve ancient customs and ancestral rites.
