Peru Adventure Tours: Maras and Moray Mountain Biking
Maras and Moray Mountain Biking Tour (1 day)
This exciting bike tour takes you to two impressive sites that are often missed on other tours of the Sacred Valley. The first of which is Moray, an Inca agricultural laboratory where each level of the circular terraces provides different temperatures and growing conditions. Experts believe that this allowed the Incas to develop heartier varieties of crops. The stunning views of the surrounding valley and the amazing Inca walls that line each terrace, will ensure that biking here is well worth the effort.
Next, continue your bike tour to another example of Inca ingenuity, the Maras Salineras or Salt Mines. Here you will see hundreds (if not thousands) of small ponds where salty water from a nearby natural spring slowly evaporates in the sun. You will learn about how the salt is prepared and harvested, as well as the history of this and other communities in the area. From here you will descend into the Sacred Valley enjoying even more amazing views of the mountain landscape.

This morning your guide will meet you at your Cusco hotel for a private transfer to Chincheros, located 45 minutes outside Cusco.
From here you will begin your journey on bicycle along a mountain trail. You’ll pass the Huaypo Lagoon on your way to the Incan experimental agricultural site of Moray, where you’ll stop for a visit.
Your journey then continues toward the village of Maras. You will enjoy a picnic lunch and ride downhill all the way to the Maras Salineras (salt mines).
After visiting the Salineras, you’ll follow the trail for about 40 minutes as you descend to Tarabamba in the Sacred Valley.
At the end of the tour, you'll start the drive back to Cusco, arriving at your hotel in the late afternoon.
