Tour Plan

We will pick you up between 5:30Am and 6:00AM at your hostel or hotel. After which we´ll head towards the sacred valley of the Incas, along the way you will get a chance to see picturesque villages and beautiful landscapes, arriving at Ollantaytambo at about 08:00AM. Here you will have a chance to get some breakfast and stock up on some things you might have forgotten to buy. At 08:15AM the bus heads towards Abra Malaga (4350 m.a.s.l.) which is the point of departure with the bikes, we will descend for 3 hrs., passing through small villages, orchards, rivers and streams, reaching the town Huamanmarca (1250 m.a.s.l.) around 12:00PM. approx. While descending it´s possible to see the vast changes in flora and fauna and the effect of oxygen level and altitude.

In Huamanmarca lunch will be served, a buffet restaurant who mainly uses local ingredients and prepares unique dishes. After a short break we´ll head towards Santa
Maria where the group will divide into 2: the ones who booked the rafting and the ones who didn´t. The ones who did book the rafting will be picked and brought the rafting camp, where they will receive a briefing and instructions. Safety is a priority, so you
will be handed out all the protection gear necessary, during the rafting a safety catamaran and cataraft will always accompany us. The rafting guides are well trained and have tons of experience on the river. Depending on the season the river will be between class III and III+, in case the river will be class IV or higher for security reasons we will cancel the rafting refund your payment. The travelers that didn’t book the rafting tour will go with an assistant guide in our private bus for 20 min. to the next town of Santa Rosa, from this point we will walk for 45 min. approx. until reaching the eco lodge called “La Choza”, there they will have the chance pick coca leaves, coffee beans and maybe some other fruits or vegetables.

At the end of the rafting adventure, the bus will be waiting the group to take them to the town of Santa Rosa where they as well will start the hike towards our jungle lodge La Choza. La Choza is a unique chance to enjoy the pure jungle in its best way, the guest family who receives you there still does things in the according to tradition, in a way you can say it´s travelling back in time for 200 years.
