Full description

Embark on an incredible experience on four wheels during this guided ATV adventure tour from Cusco through the Sacred Valley. Take in views of the Urubamba Mountains as you venture to Maras and the archeologist site of Moray.

Leaving by van from Cusco, travel for approximately one hour to the community of Cruz Pata in the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Get ready for the start of your adventure after approximately 15 minutes of ATV training.

Once ready, drive approximately 1.5 hours to the archaeological site of Moray to closely observe the remains of the terraces built by the Incas to experiment with the adaptation of crops.

Later, hop back in the van to continue to the salt mines of Maras (outside only). Enjoy beautiful views of the Urubamba Mountain range and contemplate the peaks of the Verónica and Chicón Mountains.

At the historic salt mines, you'll have the opportunity to take pictures from a viewpoint as well as buy the products made from the same salt that is found there.

At the end of the trip, take a different route back to the city of Cusco, ending a day full of adrenaline.

It was amazing!!! You go by van to a place where you pick up the quad. The scenery on the way is breathtaking. You visit Moray first (you have to pay the entrance fee if you don't have the ticket, it costs 80 soles). After that you return to the van and go to Maras (the salt flats) by van. The ticket costs 10 soles. Super attentive guides!

The quad experience was nice. You get very dusty, so you definitely shouldn't take too much with you. It's a pity that you only have 15 minutes on site in Moray. There is a longer stop at a souvenir shop on the way to the salt mine. It's a shame as the portion had something of a coffee ride. However, the salt mine is worth a visit. However, you could save yourself the stop in the shop. Entry to Moray is expensive. Unfortunately, you only spend a short time here.

The ATV to the Circular terraces was awesome!!! And the circular terraces itself was amazing!!! Edgar did a great job explaining the history of the terraces. He also was very patient and kind, staying with me as I huffed and puffed going back up. The same was true of our other guide, whom I missed getting his name. He stayed with me as well during the uphill climb from the salineras. Both of them also took awesome videos of us, making the videos look like it was taken by a drone. Thank you guys for an awesome experience!!!
