Hike from KM 104, following the epic ancient Inca Trail to the famous World Heritage Site: Machu Picchu.

Ride to the collection of salt pans in Maras—people have been mining this salt since Inca times.

Let your body relax as you take a medicinal dip in the hot springs in Lares on the final day of your e-biking adventure.

Explore the highlights of Cusco on this incredible 8-day Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu Electric Bike Tour, which is tailor-made for those in the mood for moderate exercise and major views. What better way to discover the hidden gems of Peru than to ride on electric bikes?

You’ll hop off the train at KM 104 for an exhilarating hike to the top. The trail is a magical precursor to the epic, storied views to come.

Day 7 has you back on the e-bike, and this journey asks you to swap your clothes for a bathing suit for a quick dip in the hot springs in Lares. Without a doubt, the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu Electric Bike Tour perfectly combines cultural, historical, and scenic highlights, and you don’t have to work too hard to enjoy an unforgettable adventure.

Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu Electric Bike Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive in Cusco

You’ll meet your guide upon arrival at the airport in Cusco before transferring to your hotel for the night. If you aren’t too jet-lagged, you can ask your guide to show you some of the hotspots around Cusco, such as the Plaza de Armas or the Qoricancha Temple.

When lunchtime rolls around, you can expect a delicious local meal in a restaurant just off of the main square. If there are still a couple of hours left in the day, you may get a chance to go to a local market replete with delicious tropical fruit from the Amazon. At some point, your guide will discuss the exciting, adventurous week ahead.

Kick-off your shoes in the evening and enjoy a relaxing night at your hotel, dreaming of your e-biking excursions ahead.

Day 2 E-Bike Cusco Ruins

Wake up, enjoy breakfast, and get ready for an epic first day of e-biking! Today’s path winds to an array of Inca ruins: Sacsayhuaman, Puca Pucara, and Tambomachay. The last ruin of the day, Tambomachay, is also known as Inca’s Bath, thanks to the waterfalls cascading through the stone channels.

On top of visiting impressive ruins, you’ll get to try out e-biking! First-timers and experts alike will undergo a briefing before riding. It’s a fun, leisurely activity, so you shouldn’t be worried at all about hopping on an e-bike for the first time. On the way back, your guide will choose the route most suitable for your group. They’re always looking out for you!

Day 3 Enter the Sacred Valley

It’s time to leave Cusco! You’ll make your way to the Sacred Valley today. But don’t worry about carrying all of your luggage—a support vehicle will bring your things while you enjoy the scenery and Inca ruins rolling by as you bike.

The day begins with a short bus ride out of Cusco’s chaotic traffic. Once you’re away from the beeping horns, you’ll hop back on your e-bike and head to Saylla, following tarmac road. In Saylla, you’ll veer off and travel down a lesser travelled trail until you reach the Inca ruins of Tipon.

If time allows, you may get to visit more Inca ruins (Pikillacta) and enjoy a scenic lunch with Huacarpay Lake as the backdrop. The afternoon ride will have you riding a stunning route to your next destination: Pisac in the Sacred Valley.

Here, you’ll spend time exploring the local market before hopping back on your bike and riding to Urubamba. Your ride to Urubamba unveils glimpses of traditional farming set against a postcard-painted mountainous backdrop. Thankfully, the support vehicle will follow you, so you can always rest your legs and ride to Urubamba instead.

After admiring this Instagram-worthy spot, you’ll e-bike to your final highlight of the day: the ruins of Moray. Spend the night in Ollantaytambo, relaxing, exploring, or doing whatever it takes to wind down after this phenomenal day!
