maras - moray tour


A one day mountain biking trip near Cuzco. Cycling through the Andes, to the town of Maras and the experimental terraces of Moray. Moray was used by the Incas as a sort of open-air crop nursery, know locally as the laboratory of the Incas.

Suitable for beginners and up. We travel around 35km on dirt roads and single track, passing through small villages. With fantastic views of the valley and the hummingbirds flying around, the abundance of butterflies you are reconnected with nature. Lunch at Moray with a visit to the salt mines of Salineras. The perfect excursion for a free day.


At 07:00 am. We pick you up from the hotel and travel by own private vehicle to Chincheros, which takes 40 minutes. Here we begin our cross country biking tour on the nice Andean landscape. We visit Lake Huaypo, Maras-Moray, Salt mining and finally enjoy doing downhill biking to Urubamba in the Sacred Valley. Maras is an Inca settlement, and is a place named Salineras, are extensive terracing salt areas, controlled, and used since before Inca days. This trip is for beginners, and experience bikers, you can choose to ride in asphalt road, dirt road and single trucks.

Will be a nice experience mixing the sport and knowledge of the Inca culture. After 5 hours biking 35km stopping at different view points and lunch at Urubamba and then back to Cuzco.
