Join in to experience the mystical and cultural wonders of the Sacred Valley. On Vajra Sols 5th annual retreat to the ancient and mystical land of Peru, the journey is highlighted by a visit to the impressive Inca ruins of Machu Picchu, one of the world's most extraordinary archaeological wonders and voted as one of the Best 25 Trips in the World by National Geographic Adventure. Be ready to open your path to an unforgettable and mystical adventure and enter the fascinating world of Peru on a trip of a lifetime!
The first five nights are spent at a beautiful lodge set in the outskirts of Urubamba town in the Sacred Valley. For the night in Aguas Calientes and the two nights in Cusco, you stay at moderately priced and comfortable hotels. All rooms have private bathrooms.
The Vajra Sol retreat begins in Cusco and ends in Cusco after breakfast. Please plan on the day prior to the retreat start date and the day after as travel days between your home and Peru when coordinating your trip.
The trip begins in the culturally rich city of Cusco where we meet before heading to the Sacred Valley. Youll spend five days exploring the sites and vibrant Quechua markets in this beautiful valley surrounded by the awe-inspiring Andes mountains. Your mind, body, and spirit will be opened through daily yoga sessions and you will connect to the powerful healing energy of mother nature at an idyllic retreat lodge.
You will then cross the valley to Ollantaytambo where you take a scenic train ride along the Urubamba River to arrive at Aguas Calientes, your base from where you tour Machu Picchu. Your travel ends back in Cusco walking through the cobblestone streets, taking in the fusion of the ancient and modern cultures of Peru.
A 1.5 - 2 hour yoga session will be held daily during your time at the lodge in the Sacred Valley. The style of yoga practiced is Vinyasa flow in combination with Restorative yoga. There is a powerful energy that is felt in this area of the Sacred Valley which is an ideal and conducive setting to reflect openly and to explore on a deeper level one's yoga practice. The fresh Andes mountain air energizes the mind and body and the inspiring views give a feel of a freedom from time. Here you will experience a transformative connection to nature and self.
The staple food in Peru is quinoa, potato, meat, and vegetables. Vegetarian meals are also available. There will be 5 lunches and 6 dinners included in the package price.
Peru is currently a very popular travel destination and you are advised to book early for international and domestic flights. Book your flight to Lima, the capital of Peru. The airport code is LIM.
Depending on the arrival time of your international flight into Lima, (many are night flights from the U.S. / Canada arriving in Lima late evening or early morning), you may have to spend the night in Lima (contact Vajra Sol Yoga Adventures for hotel options). The next morning you will take a domestic flight from Lima to Cusco. If your flight arrives in Lima in the morning hours you then can catch a domestic flight to Cusco. Allow at least 2-3 hours in between your international and domestic flights in case of delays.
Flight time from Lima to Cusco is one hour. It is recommended to book these domestic flights in the morning as weather is typically better and there is less chance of flight delay or cancelation.
LAN Airlines, TACA Airlines and Copa Air have international flights from the US / Canada to Lima with connections to Cusco. Multiple US carriers fly into Lima.
