Biking tour in Cusco

A full or Half day mountain bike tour around Cusco, near the Urubamba Valley, with visits to many of the great archaeological sites of this historic City.

Travel Program

Cuzco is a city in southeastern Peru, near the Urubamba valley (Sacred Valley of the Andes mountain range. Cuzco was the capital of Inca empire. Many believe that the city was planned to be shaped like a Puma. The city had two sectors: the urin and hanan, which were further divided to each encompass two of the four provinces, Chinchaysuyo (NW), Antisuyo (NE), Contisuyo (SW), and Collasuyo (SE). A road led from each of these quarters to the corresponding quarter of the empire. Each local leader was required to build a house in the city and live part of the year in Cuzco, but only in the quarter of Cuzco that corresponded to the quarter of the empire he had territory in. According to Inca legend, the city was built by sapac Inca Pachacuti, the man who transformed the Kingdom of Cuzco from a sleepy city-state into the vast empire of Tahantinsuyu. But archaeological evidence points to a slower, more organic growth of the city beginning before Pachacuti. There was however a city plan and two rivers were channeled around the city.

Rain season: December to March. Some days are with blue sky permitting to cycle this zone…After rain season (April to June) the mountains are completely covered with snow and the slops are cover with new vegetation making nicer for pictures.
