Spend a very special day in the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, away from the crowds on a beautiful boutique family ranch. Choose your favorite activities, and let us take care of everything else. We will create a custom itinerary for your family or your group based on your interests and preferences, so that when you arrive, you can relax knowing that every element of your day on the ranch will be tailored for you. Every minute detail will be organised with care so you can relax and enjoy. We promise you an unforgettable day in the Sacred Valley.
With the ranch as your base for the day, you can visit one or several treasures of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, either on foot, horseback, or mountain bike. You’ll also be able to enjoy gourmet Peruvian organic meals, relax at the ranch, and take one of our hands-on artisan workshops.
Our ranch is special because our food is as local and as seasonal as it gets - it’s all grown on-site and it’s all organic. Our chefs prepare both traditional and modern Peruvian delicacies. Our horses are exceptional: well-trained and well-cared-for Peruvian Paso horses. Our bilingual guides and hosts are locals knowledgeable about the area and dedicated to your group for the day. Our ranch family will prepare and serve your delicious meals, carry your gear, assist you at every turn and provide door-to-door service.
The day starts when our private vehicle (a comfortable sedan or a van) picks you up from your accommodation in Cusco or the Sacred Valley. The same vehicle will be standing ready to take you back to your desired destination at the end of your Ranch day experience.
You can create your itinerary as you desire; we suggest starting with a horseback ride, hike or mountain bike ride, having a picnic in the Sacred Valley and later returning to the Ranch to enjoy a delicious organic meal surrounded by majestic mountains. You’ll have views of native plants and free-roaming horses as you eat, while hummingbirds are fluttering their wings just under your window, with the nearby waterfalls providing the soundtrack for your meal.
On our ranch you can connect with Mother Nature in a uniquely beautiful place, while being active and immersing yourself in tailored local experiences. May we recommend a few sample itineraries…
