The Sacred Valley Ride

Horse Riding Holiday, 11-days/ 10-nights

 

Our signature and most popular ride starts from our riding operation in the heart of the Sacred Valley at about 8,500 feet (2,800m). The Sacred Valley Ride follows a route across the Urubamba River, up through mountain pasture where smiling Quechua children herd sheep and cattle, to highland terraces and small, mountain villages, where the horses' hooves echo on ancient cobblestone roads. Oxen pull wooden ploughs through the fields, travel is largely by foot and the native people speak Quechua, the language of the Incas. The trip includes a visit to the legendary Inca citadel of Machu Picchu and a 2-night stay (mid-trip) in the ancient Inca capital of Cusco. Set departure dates run from April through October.

James - United Kingdom

"A truly wonderful trip. I have ridden in many different countries (and I know how lucky I am). This trip was up there with the best. Fun, feisty horses, history, stunning scenery and great hosts who care about their horses and guests. In that order. Which is how it should be. Thanks, Eddy and Maria for letting us join your family for a short time. It was a delight."  

Barbera Slater - United Kingdom

"Dear Eddy & Maria, thank you and your staff, Fernando & Willie for the most amazing holiday. It far exceeded my expectations and I along with my friends enjoyed every minute on every ride. Each day was so different, it was a brilliant adventure on these magnificent Paso horses. The scenery, countryside and people are beautiful. You fed and watered us very well and took us to some stunning places. I will always cherish this trip and Peru and I hope to come back soon. Thanks again Denise xxx."  

Denise Large - United Kingdom

"Hi Eddy and Maria, Thank you both and your staff for a wonderful holiday. I enjoyed every minute of it, the amazing horses, the beautiful scenery, riding up through the remote villages, experiences never to be forgotten. The food was delicious and the pisco sours went down extremely well !! A holiday of a lifetime. Thank you so much for everything. Love Katrina xx."  

Katrina Clark - Ireland

Michele Juliana - USA

"It was evident that the ride organizer loves what he does, which made the experience that much more pleasurable. His charm and wit along with the panoramic landscape, excellent food and accommodations made for a perfect experience. His small staff was very pleasant, highly organized and made us feel like part of the family." 

Megyn Craine - USA

"Riding these beautiful, spirited and honourable horses was an experience way beyond words. Well, actually it was sublime. Thank you Eddy and Maria you are true horse people as well as fabulous hosts. This ride is an absolute must as the horses are without doubt the best, the scenery spectacular, the ride combines classical riding with the culture and history of Peru, great hotels as well as Maria's exquisite cuisine. Eddy lives for his horses and they show every inch of his love. Thank you also to our great group. We had a ball didn't we!" 

Deborah Walker - Australia

"Stunningly beautiful, fit, willing horses and the most comfy way to ride. Least sore I've ever been on a riding trip. Both the food and the quality of the accommodation were the best I've ever experienced on a riding holiday. Outstanding

You must take it easy the first couple of days. You get extremely out of breath easily. Don't rush and your body will adjust to the altitude in a few days. In addition to riding through spectacular scenery on beautiful horses, you get to visit amazing Inca sights. Cannot recommend this trip highly enough!"  Francesca Chiavarini - United Kingdom

"If you do one riding holiday in your life, make it this one. You won't regret it!"

Siobhan - West Sussex, UK
