The Sacred Valley of the Incas

explora Valle Sagrado was designed as a headquarter from where to explore a remote and great destination: Cusco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley of the Incas. All our programs include accommodations, transfers, meals and beverages, and a selection of more than 40 explorations developed by our outdoor team.

Our explorations take travelers through the colonial history of Cusco and the architectural magnificence of the Incas in Machu Picchu, isolated villages, archaeological sites such as Ollantaytambo, Moray, Chinchero and Pisac, to Andean pampas and mountains or Apus, considered by locals as guardians of people and nature.

Why explora?

Located between Cusco and Machu Picchu at an altitude of 600 meters (2.000 feet) below the ancient Inca capital city, explora Valle Sagrado offers visitors an in-depth exploration experience from a base hotel immersed in the history of the Incas.

70 km from Cusco and at the heart of the Inca Empire, <em>explora</em> Valle Sagrado is sited in a protected and quiet hacienda, surrounded by cornfields and with views to the mountains.

Location

The Pumacahua Bath House is an old colonial manor located on one side of the hotel’s corn terraces. Rescued by our restoration and archaeology team, it contains the hotel’s spa where our guests can enjoy massages, a swimming pool, steam baths and saunas.

Spa Pumacahua Bath House

Some of the areas we will be visiting in Valle Sagrado include Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, Zapacto, Maras, Quimsacocha, Pisac, Cusco, Moray, and many others.

Privileged views

We offer more than 30 explorations for you to choose –on a daily basis and with the help of our guides– how to visit Cusco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. The options include treks, bike rides, and trips by van, with different durations and difficulty levels.

Explorations

Given the region's outstanding ancestral and cultural heritage, the commissioning and construction of the Valle Sagrado project was done in the most responsible way, working in close coordination with the Peruvian archeology institute. At the same time, we worked with the area's communities and we hope – starting as from this year – to establish a conservation and social responsibility program.

Sustainability

Since we believe that it is important to leave all daily concerns behind, our hotels are all inclusive: explorations, food, beverage, and transport.

All Inclusive

Exploring Cusco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley

Traveling through archaeological Inca sites, following the course of the Urubamba River by bike, visiting Machu Picchu or arriving at a glacier nearby Cusco are some of the explorations carefully designed by explora for its travelers. Through more than 40 options to explore, either walking, by van or riding a bike, our travelers discover from traditional villages still untouched by globalization to perfectly preserved ancient traces and lost lagoons in the Andean pampa.

    Nothing not to love

    This is our fourth explora hotel and we love them. The whole experience is wonderful. Every day there is a choice of expeditions ranging from half day to full days with very knowledgeable/expert guides. The walks cater for all abilities and they also offer cycling and horse riding. There was a wonderful spa and pool if you want to chill. The food is terrific and the staff is absolutely charming. We are looking forward to explora opening their next lodge...we will be there.

    Magical!

    Explora is a truly magical place. Gorgeous hotel, luxurious rooms, food and drinks to die for, and the excursions are phenomenal! The guides here are fantastic, they know everything - history, archeology, culture, geology, etc. You really learn the "why" behind the excursion topics. And they are each exclusive and unique. The bike riding was so much fun, and we felt we were watching Game of Thrones when learning about Machu Picchu history - we were on the edge of our seats! I cannot recommend this place enough, we were heartbroken when we left. We hope to come back soon!

    Simply the best!

    Spent a week here and it was one of my favorite trips ever. For a property to truly be 5-star, no detail can be overlooked and this Explora delivered on every level. Upon arriving at the airport, we were in Explora's capable hands and for the next week, we enjoyed hiking in amazing locations, eating wonderful food, and just relaxing in our suite and/or at the spa. I cannot recommend staying here enough. I would gladly repeat this entire experience. Thank you, Explora. I am coming back.
