The ATV tour only covers a part of the Sacred Valley tour, in the last years it was taking more importance thanks to the demand required by all the adventurers of the world for its easy access and economic cost. The adventure sport of zip line and ATV in Cusco, differs from other adventures such as the trek to the RAINBOW mountain, in that during its journey it does not require much physical effort and is highly recommended to acclimatize the body before starting adventures such as the Inca Trail, Lares Machu Picchu, Choquequirao or private tours to Machu Picchu.

Overview

Sacred Valley

Just a one hour drive from Cusco, shadowed beneath the emerald Andean peaks lies the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Here, you’ll find beautiful villages that modernity has barely touched as well as Inca sites, such as those near Pisac and Ollantaytambo and Chinchero.

Pisac

The mountain town of Pisac is famous for two things: its magnificent Inca site and its colorful artisan market. Start by exploring the Inca citadel, which sits on a plateau above sweeping agricultural terraces. At the top of the site is the Sun Temple, which contains an abstract yet significant carved rock hitching post; this is thought to be symbolically tied to the sun as it journeys across the sky. Back in town, Pisaq’s artisan market happens daily, but peaks on Sundays, when the selection of weaved blankets, knitted scarves, cozy alpaca jumpers, ceramics and other traditional products is particularly wide ranging.

Chinchero

Chinchero’s Sunday market was originally set-up so that people living in the valley and the surrounding hills could trade produce. No longer is it just a local affair. Visitors now come from far to browse for handicrafts produced by the indigenous weaving community here. Chinchero’s weavers are artisans in the truest sense; they harvest wool, produce their own natural dyes and hand weave their textiles and clothes .

Ollantaytambo

Named after the Inca chief Ollanta, this town is now the kick-off point for the Inca Trail. But even if you aren’t hiking the world famous route, Ollantaytambo’s cluster of well-preserved Inca site and relics form an attraction in their own right. The town retains its original Inca walls and street grid, and the formidable fortress here was one of the last Inca bastions to withstand the attacking Spanish.

Moray

This stepped, amphitheater-like pits are believed to have been used by the Incas to experiment with groundbreaking agricultural methods. Because of the different elevations, the temperatures between each layer of the pit can vary by several degrees. These distinct microclimates allow different types of vegetables and cereals to grow, which couldn’t otherwise survive in the harsh Andean environment.

Duration: 7 hours.

Ziplining Tour + 4- Wheeler Tour to Moray and Salt Mines of Maras

The perfect tour for the visitors, where the beginning of the trip to Racchi will begin. Racchi is located in the middle of magnificent natural paradise where we will begin the zip line and feel as though we are flying through the air! Through the flight on the zip line the participant will have the ability to appreciate the various Andean mountains and paradises, the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the lively culture of the Racchi community.
After a short break and snack, we will continue on 4-wheelers to the archeological center of Moray. Moray is a set of circular terraces that were used as an amphitheater and as an agricultural laboratory by the Incas. Then we will continue on 4- wheelers to the salt mines of Maras, which is an artisanal salt extraction location. Following our tour at the salt mines, we will return to Cusco.
The zip line is a sport that is increasingly practiced and especially in the sacred valley due to the beautiful views, the snowy mountains, the farmland. Currently there are many companies that provide the zip line service in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. This extreme sport needs a safety equipment approved by all the corresponding institutions. We offer security when making the zip line. It is mandatory for the passenger to use all the safety equipment and be present at the informative talk. In addition, if this is the first time you have done this sport, you must be accompanied by an instructor, for those who like extreme positions, you should first consult with the instructor if you can do it. The company responsible for providing the service provides safety equipment such as:
  • Harness Avao bod.
  • Boreal helmet.
  • Trac plus zipline pulley.
  • OXAN heavy duty oval carabiner.
  • WILLIAM large capacity carabiner.
  • Pro traxion pulley.
  • RESCUE of side plates mobiles.
  • JOKO I 70 cm Mooring element.
  • JOKO-Y Mooring Element.
These equipments need to be used in an adequate way to guarantee the physical integrity of the users The deep knowledge of each one of these elements destined to hold the users of the canopy while they are more than 80 meters above the ground is a very important measure to consider to avoid the possibility of a fall. The safety with which this operation is carried out depends on the responsibility of the canopy guide in the use of this equipment. For the use of these equipments it is necessary to carry out the different practical tests and evaluations in order to generate the necessary experience and then put them into practice in real conditions with a high safety margin. The constant review of these equipment allows us to evaluate their deterioration for the subsequent withdrawal of equipment that is not in good condition and the periodic maintenance of these to extend their useful life. Proper storage of this equipment prevents them from coming into contact with products or other conditions that damage the materials from which they are made.

    An Amazing & Educational Experience

    The one-day zip-lining and ATV tour was amazing! It was the perfect combination of education and adventure. Prior to visiting Peru, we found Pumadventures online and, upon landing in Cusco in the late afternoon, we contacted the company who was able to pull together a day tour for the next day. So lucky that they were able to connect us with a driver and tour guide that were both very friendly and very knowledgable. Edgar in particular was incredible. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting Cusco!
