Sacred Valley

Program Overview

The mountains of southern Peru are home to some of the highest peaks and greatest biological diversity in the Americas.  


They are also home to the hemisphere’s oldest continuously inhabited city, Cusco, which was considered the navel of the Incan empire of Tawantinsuyu.  Just outside of Cusco, along the honored Vilcanota and Urubamba rivers, runs the Sacred Valley, where many of the Inca’s most important cities and agricultural lands existed.  Here resides both a historic and a living culture, where mountain traditions mix, and sometimes clash, with modern Peruvian life.

Program Highlights
  • Delve into environmental issues through site visits and discussions pertaining to agricultural diversity and climate change.
  • Journey by foot along antiquated path with breathtaking views of lakes and waterfalls.
  • Stay with a family of Incan descendants in the village of Paru Paru, an off-the-tourist path community in the Sacred Valley.
  • Explore your own living connection with the earth through ceremonies facilitated by renowned wisdom keepers  from the Queros nation.
  • Learn basic phrases in Quechua  through interactive classes and excursions.
