Machu Picchu, Perú
WHY JOIN US
We invite you to be part our next trip, where Wheel the World will be enabling a new travel experience in the touristic capital of South America!
Cusco, and Machu Picchu, is one of those iconic destinations that every passionate traveler wants to explore. Until now, there is no special offer for people with disabilities to visit and enjoy as anyone else all the attractions of Cusco.
The purpose of this trip is to explore together, a team of people of all abilities, the coolest places of Cusco while training a tour operator on how to receive future travelers with disabilities. This story will be captured in an inspiring documentary that you will be part of.
We have only 12 spots available!

Day 2 - November 21st
In the morning, you will visit the huge “Inca Ceremonial Center of Sacsayhuaman”. This enormous structure overlooks the city of Cusco. Later, you continue visiting another important Inca site known as “Qenqo”. This is a place with subterranean passages and carved stone channels in a zigzag pattern. In its inner part, there is a carved stone table where it is said the Incas mummified their dead. Afterward, you will do a short visit to the archaeological Inca sites of “Tambomachay” a temple dedicated to the God of Water and “PucaPucará”.
After these visits, you will return to Cusco and have a free afternoon.
Day 3 - November 22nd
In the morning, travel by private car through the Sacred Valley (approx 2 hours total drive), on the outskirts of Cusco. You will head to a community in the Valley to learn about local lifestyle and activities and if our visit coincides with the market day you can spend time browsing the stalls in search of hand-painted beads or warm ponchos and maybe practicing some of the local language, Quechua. Later you will continue to the town of Ollantaytambo which has been built over an ancient Inca town. We will ride an adaptive bike around Ollantaytambo and explore its beauties (no previous experience needed).
Day 4 - November 23erd

This morning you'll wake up quite early in preparing to take an early train (depending on availability the train may depart between 6 and 8 am) you will take the train from Ollantaytambo to KM104 which is the beginning of the trek. Begin the trek by crossing the Vilcanota/Urubamba River, and we'll enter the Inca Trail at approximately 9 am. Shortly after, it's on to the Inca ruins of Chachabamba.
