Earlier this year, The New York Times included explora Valle Sagrado in its list of “52 places to go in 2017”. Today, you should find out why you have to plan a visit this season.
Between May and October, the sun shines more than ever in the Sacred Valley favoring conditions for photography. Valley mountain highlights and brighter colors will showcase this destination’s nature and landscapes better than in other seasons. Additionally, a new photography program has been scheduled for August 15-22, 2017, led by Japanese Photographer Katsuyoshi Tanaka, who will teach our travelers about photography while going to special places.
During this season rainfall is less frequent and temperatures are warmer, only slightly over 20°C (68°F) during the day. Nights are colder, so you should bring along warm clothing.
The Inca legacy is still alive at the Sacred Valley and local inhabitants follow and honor millenary traditions. During June’s solstice there are celebrations honoring Sun God, also known as Inti Raymi; while the Pachamama (Mother Earth) is celebrated in August. Communities make offerings to Goddess Earth in retribution for what she gives them. Other celebrations during this period are Peru’s national festivities and Carmen Virgin’s Holiday, including parades, food festivals, and music shows.
We are about to begin our second season in the Sacred Valley of the Incas and we want to celebrate this year’s achievements and welcome the next. We invite our travelers to live a unique exploration experience in this amazing Peruvian destination with a 40% discount. In these almost 12 months of operations, more than 2,000 travelers have lived the explora experience at the Sacred Valley; we opened our Pumacahua Bath House Spa, and we have consolidated our travelers’ experiences by constantly improving our exploration routes.
This is the first season of our Pumacahua Bath House Spa so all our travelers have the chance to enjoy this unique place. The Pumacahua Bath House is a colonial house recovered by explora which was built in the seventeenth century and belonged to one of Peru’s Independence heroes, the Mateo Pumacahua Inca Cacique. This unique spot includes a pool an outdoors Jacuzzis, massage rooms, a sauna and a steam bath. Taking a bath while gazing at the mountains that once sheltered the Inca Empire or taking a rest among walls with more than 400 years of history is certainly a unique experience.
