Trip Overview

Day 1

Cusco, Peru

Arrive in Cusco (CUZ) before 8:00 PM and take the included transportation to our boutique hotel. 

Get to know your new friends as you begin to acclimate at 11,200 feet and take it easy as you explore the Historic center of Cusco. 

See Cusco's incredible Plaza de Armas at night and feel like you've gone back in time.

Day 2

Explore Capital of Incan Empire

Cusco represents the center of the Quechua culture in the Andes and just by walking the streets you can see the layers of history come alive.

We'll explore the Capital of the Incas like a local as we head up to the famous Christo Blanco to find the most beautiful views of the city. 

Wander through the artisanal market to find beautiful multi-colored alpaca wool sweaters for friends back home. At night, enjoy the local fare as we have dinner in Cusco's, "Plaza de Armas."

Day 3

Cultural Immersion

Drive to the upper part of the Sacred Valley as we visit a small indigenous community in Chinchero.  

Learn how the Quechua people live in the Andes and see firsthand what their spiritual connection to earth & each other means to them.

You'll get to participate in traditions that have been passed down for thousands of years during this community outreach project we've developed with the locals exclusively for Under30Experiences.  

From there, drive through the Sacred Valley and see the Urubamba River as you head to the town of Ollantaytambo where you'll catch the train to Aguas Calientes at the base of Machu Picchu.

Day 4

Machu Picchu

Wake up early and catch the bus from Aguas Calientes up the winding road to Machu Picchu. 

"The Lost City of the Incas" will take your breath away as you weave through the paths and tour this preserved piece of history. 

Explore Machu Picchu with a local guide who will explain the history and magic of this site. After trying to get a selfie with a llama, take the train and bus back to Cusco and reflect on the beauty of what you just experienced.

Day 5

Rainbow Mountain

Today you'll journey southeast of Cusco and climb even higher into the Andes for a colorful adventure.  

Don't forget your coca leaves as you hike up to above 16,000 feet and earn yourself some stunning views of Vinicunca: the famous Rainbow Mountain.  

Once you've taken in the vibrant mountainside, head back to Cusco where you'll have some time to relax and take one last stroll around town before we get together for our final dinner together.

Day 6

Relaxation & Departure

Today is our last breakfast together before heading back or continuing your adventure. 

Say goodbye to the amazing new travel buddies you've made and adios to beautiful Cusco. 

Feel free to stay and explore more of the Andes or take the provided transportation back to the Cusco airport. 

As our Under30Experiences trip comes to a close, we hope you keep in touch with our awesome community and your new friends.
