Design your unique journey from an exciting list of adventure and cultural immersion activities


The city of Cusco, the ancient capital of the Incan Empire, was placed on the World Cultural Heritage list by UNESCO in 1983, and is one of the most important destinations in Peru and all of South America. This legendary city is known worldwide for the large number of archaeological remains left by the Inca culture, and is the gateway to one of the most majestic archaeological sites that exist throughout the continent, “The impressive citadel of Machupicchu”.

The cathedral in Cusco was built in 1539, and later between the years 1560 and 1664 a new cathedral was constructed. It was designed in the shape of a Latin cross.  The façade is in the Renaissance style contrasting with the Baroque and Plateresque.  The Cathedral is also famous for its splendid interior with colonial-style goldsmith’s work, woodcarving and a valuable collection of canvases in the style of the so-called Cusqueña School.

Koricancha and the Convent of Santo Domingo

The extraordinarily crafted Temple of the Sun at Koricancha (Koricancha means “courtyard of gold” in Quechua) was the most sumptuous temple in the Incan Empire.  In addition to hundreds of gold panels lining its walls, there were life-sized gold figures and solid gold altars.  The mummies of the Incan nobles were kept here and used during the religious ceremonies.  After the Spaniards looted the temple and emptied it of gold, the exquisite polished stonewalls were used as the foundations of the Dominican Convent of Santo Domingo, but some parts of the original temple still remain today.


The Sacsayhuaman complex is located on a steep hill above.  For many years it was considered to be a fortress.  However, modern researchers hypothesize that it was part-residence to the wealthy nobility, and part-temple for religious ceremonies.  Although the Spanish demolished the buildings, the remains of this place are still impressive!  The grounds surrounding Sacsayhuaman are still used today for the colorful festival of Inti Raymi which is held on the 24th of June every year.


Qenko is a strange Incan temple carved out of huge stone.  Q’enko comes from the Quechua language and means “Labyrinth.”   There are carvings everywhere, although some are a little indistinct.  There are many zigzag channels on top of the rock, probably used for pouring sacrificial chicha (a local wine made from maize).  Inside the rock there are a number of caves, passageways, and an altar.

Puka Pukara

Puka Pukara translates to “the red fortress.”  This is a small site and although the name suggests it was a fortress, it does not appear to have any defensive purpose.


Tambomachay in Quechua means “place of rest.”  This “water resort” in Incan times, was a sacred site used to worship the water deity, and had magnificent channels, aqueducts, and waterfalls.
