Quad Biking

Description

Quad Biking

This Quad tour through the Andean highlands offers guaranteed adventure! The tour takes you off-road on small trails that allow you to explore the landscape of the Sacred Valley off the beaten track.

The Moray Inca ruins as well as the Maras salt mines are part of the tour. Together with your specialised guides you will cross the Andean highlands off-road and reach the archaeological site of Moray in the Sacred Valley. In these circular terraces the Inca experimented with different agricultural conditions for their crops. Furthermore, the tour will stop at the famous Maras salt mines, consisting of roughly 4000 pools where salt is harvested since Incan times.

An instruction and test ride with the Quad bikes is part of the tour. It is advisable that participants have had drivers lessons.


Itinerary

The Quad tour can be done either in the morning (approx. 8:00 A.M to 1:30 P.M) or the afternoon approx. 1:00 P.M to 7:00 P.M).

Pick-up at your hotel or other point in the Cusco city centre and transfer to the starting point near the town of Maras, where you will be equipped with protection gear. After a safety briefing and time to practice driving the quad bike, we will start the tour into the direction of Moray. After the visit of the Maras terraces, we will get back to the bikes and drive the windy roads to the salt mines of Maras. We will visit the salt pools and you will have time to buy souvenirs.
