Highlights
    What to Expect
    We start from Ollantaytambo, where the guide awaits ready with all necessary equipment and bikes and the transportation. We will leave Ollantaytambo and go towards Moray, where the bike ride will begin. Previously we will visit the archaeological site of Moray.

    Moray is one of the very important archaeological centers located in the Sacred Valley. This place was a research center, where for many years the Incas studied the different types of seeds that they would use in the valleys of culture.

    After visiting Moray, the guide will provide you all the safety equipment and bikes and will give you a small introduction and presentation of the route where we are to ride the bikes and have fun!

    This route has beautiful views of the mountains and glaciers that surround the area. The guide stops at strategic points where you can take the best pictures of the scenery including the pre-colonial village of Maras. In Maras we rest before we continue and eat some snacks that the guide will provide you.

    Continuing the tour we will stop at the Salt Mine, where we enter to visit the place. The Salt Mine is pre-Incan. You can appreciate the architecture of the building, where local people work to produce salt for local and national consumption, although today some production is being exported to different parts of the world.

    After visiting the Salt Mine take again the bikes and go down in the last part of the route to Tarabamba where our driver will be waiting for us.

    We load the bikes and return back to Ollantaytambo.

    Really enjoyed this. It's always hard to gauge route difficulty, but if you've done any sort of mountain biking you shouldn't have any problem with this. Plus, if you've not, just take it easy or there's no shame in pushing (down or uphill!). Amazing scenery and Jose and crew

    I booked the Abra Malaga tour but we did the Maras and Moray tour instead. My husband and I are active but this was a humbling experience- it was out of our comfort zones in a good way! Our guide Jose was so kind and patient with us novice mountain bikers! But above and beyond

    Jose is very knowledge about the places we visited and very very patient in guiding me during the bike tour. I was not very experienced on mountain bikes and I hiked the bike a lot, but Jose waited and helped me carried the bikes when the trail became too much for me, and I
