Ollantaytambo Things to See and Do

follow us

The Sacred Valley abounds with opportunities to get your adrenaline fix en route to ruins. Leave the tour bus behind, and mountain bike to the Moray Ruins or take a ride down the 14,400-foot Abra Málaga Pass. Trek to the Choquequirao ruins (a journey also known as "the other Inca trail") or whitewater raft the Apurímac Canyon. Ollantaytambo is an ideal jump-off point for outdoor adventures throughout the valley, whether you're interested in half-day, full-day or multi-day trips. All organized trips require a minimum of two people; however, with a group of three or more, prices are lower per person. Full-day mountain bike trips start about $35 (for do-it-yourself types, it's also possible to rent bikes, helmets and gear for about half the price), rafting starts at $20 and myriad multi-day combo trekking/biking trips start as low as $150 per person, but do cost as much as $250 per person for longer, more involved excursions.


For an outdoor adventure on a smaller scale, it's possible to book city walking tours and short horse riding trips at various locations around Ollantaytambo, including restaurants and tour agencies in the Plaza Mayor.
