If exploring Peru’s Sacred Valley on the way to visit Machu Picchu is high on your client’s bucket list, Libertador Hotels, Resorts, & Spas is offering a new way for travelers to do exactly that with its new Sacred Cycling package.
Available at Tambo del Inka, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa in the Sacred Valley, the Sacred Cycling package is an alternative to hiking the Inca Trail for outdoor enthusiasts hoping to explore the countryside and go off-the-beaten-path. To help with the altitude adjustment if needed and open up the experience to those who may not otherwise feel fit enough to participate, the specialized bikes provided with this package are electric, double suspension, frame and mountain rims, with pedal assist systems and central motors.
The Sacred Cycling package includes three nights of accommodations in a premium guestroom, access to the water circuit at the resort’s Kallpa Spa, free WiFi, late checkout, unlimited coca tea, daily buffet breakfast and one dinner for two, plus a full day at Machu Picchu. Also included in the package are a 4-hour Andean Brews Exploration excursion, which exposes travelers to 1,000 years of brewing techniques including an Andean “chicha” brewing experience and a modern hand crafted beer tasting, plus the Salt Mines and Andean Lakes excursion. On this 6-hour excursion, cyclists will ride north to the district of Yahanuara, and then take a scenic detour to the Maras Salt Mines, which are still in use since the Inka times and produce a rare pink salt. From there, guests will continue upwards to Lake Huaypo for a picnic lunch. Guests booking this package can also head to the spa for a 20 percent discount off of any treatment. Those wishing to extend their trip can book additional nights at either the Tambo del Inka or the Palacio del Inka with a 20 percent discount. Rates for this package start at $2,995 pp dbl.
