Cusco, the center of the world as referred by its originary “Quechua” name is located in the very heart of the Andes Mountain Range of Peru. It is world renowned for its fascinating cultural heritage and breathtaking archeological remains.

The first part of the trip will take place in the “Sacred Valley of the Incas” where we will be able to explore the mountains and ruin sites unlike no other, we will take numerous varieties of trails and Inca-ruin that will have us visiting some of the most amazing places whilst running. 

Our main Base will be the Town of Urubamba, Capital of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, where all the energy and amazing climate has been inspiring generations of kingdoms to declare it as such an important location. 

The first part of the trip includes runs in the mythic Moray Ruins, the unique Maras Salt Mines and Inca Trails or “Qapac Ñans”such as Lares and Cachi Cata, that used to connect all of the cultural exchanges in the prime of the Inca Empire. 

A the trip flows on, we will dive deep into the outstanding ancient and actual culinary experiences of Peru, with each stop designed for the trip. We will also have a taste of the upcoming amazing local-ingredient-inspired brewery’s  of the Sacred Valley and be able to compare them with the ancient ceremonial drinks that have been produced for centuries.
