Short itinerary

Day 1 : Cusco/Sacred Valley train station - Aguas Calientes
Day 2 : Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Cusco/Sacred Valley

The most important place to visit on your trip to Peru or South America is Machu Picchu which was discovered in 1911 after lying abandoned for centuries. We catch the early morning train on one of the world’s great railway journeys.


The track slowly climbs out of Cusco passing through small communities on the high plains. The scenery is spectacular with wonderful views of the mountains and snow peaks of the Andes.
As the train descends into the beautiful Urubamba Valley we will notice that the vegetation becomes increasingly tropical. It is here in amongst this lush vegetation that we find the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu.
