Full description
After pickup from your hotel in central Cusco, head straight into the wondrous landscapes and views of the Sacred Valley. After pausing for the vistas in the town of Pisaq, you’ll continue to the sustainable farm and village. Once you arrive, you’ll be greeted warmly by the villagers, who will give you a tour of the communal farm that they tend.

Next on the agenda is a visit to the Kinsaqocha lagoon, where you’ll have an unmatched panorama of the Andes and the valleys below. Marvel at the tranquil vastness beneath you as you search the trees for local birds and wildlife. Afterwards, you’ll participate in a workshop about local medicinal plants and artisanal crafts unique to the region. 

To cap things off, you’ll enjoy a hearty local meal, including stews made with the diverse selection of local potatoes. Afterwards, you’ll head back to your hotel in Cusco.
