Discover Sacred Valley

Km. 75.8, Carretera Urubamba-Ollantaytambo, Valle Sagrado, Cusco, Peru

The Sacred Valley stretches out from Pisac to Ollantaytambo, an area that once formed the heart of the Inca Empire. Mystical ruins still emerge from the surface of the earth alongside the towering Andes. Cloaking the hustle and bustle of daily life, a soothing hush lingers in the air above the valley—a gentle reminder to reflect on this region’s fascinating past and enchanting natural beauty.

Rushing through the seam of the valley is the Urubamba River. Crystal clear lakes, dramatic gorges and trickling tributaries form in its wake. To the north the majestic Machu Picchu rises. Nestled in the valley further south is Rio Sagrado. Our rural oasis is the perfect base from which to explore this ancient paradise. Or to simply relax and be pampered Peruvian style.

Destination Guide: Unlock Sacred Valley, Peru

When the Incas moved north of Cusco to the Urubamba Valley, they knew they had come across sacred land. With a rolling river mirroring the Milky Way, fertile soil in which crops could flourish and a pleasant year-round climate, this land would become home to one of the world’s greatest civilizations. They left long ago, but the valley remains honored, seemingly untouched by the hands of modernity. This is a place to unwind, to uncover rich history, but most of all to reconnect with nature.
