Cusco: Walking the ruins around Cusco

Visit Us

Walking the ruins around Cusco

This guided walk explores the historical and architectural legacy of the immediate region around the imperial capital of the Incas. On foot you can better appreciate the context of the ruins around Cusco and how they connect to one another, and it’s also a great way to acclimatise in preparation for longer treks.

You’ll visit key ancient sites including the imposing fort of Sacsayhuamán, the Temple of the Moon and the sanctuary of Q’enqo, resembling an amphitheatre of solid stone.
