City: Cusco, Mountains // Activities: Quad bike tour, visit of Moray and Maras salt mines // 

 Why you'll love this experience:

 Our itinerary is unique and allows you to be at Maras without the large tourist groups!

 Ride on modern and well-maintained ATVs up to 45 km/h (28 mph).

 Perfect mix of adventure and sightseeing.

 

Visiting the top tourist destinations of Cusco is always a great adventure. Imagine an ATV tour through the beautiful Andean postcard-like landscape that will leave you speechless. You will be able to do this and more during this tour while riding a 4-wheel metal beast: an ATV (quad bike).

Admire the huge rural meadows that characterise the great Sacred Valley and get to know the Salt Mines of Maras. They have been exploited since the Inca age and their origin still remains a mystery today. With our tour, you will get there without being surrounded by large tourist groups that either visit before or afterwards. Next, you will head to the archeological site of Moray, known as a laboratory of agricultural research that allowed the Incas to test and plant different crops at various elevation levels.

You will spend around 20-30 minutes at each of the sites. Let the mysterious Sacred Valley amaze you while being on a quad bike! If you want to add some more adventure to the tour you can combine this quad bike tour and zipline on the same day.
