Tour agencies in Cusco would have you believe that trekking or riding the train between Cusco and Aguas Calientes are your only two options to get to the lost city. Do something a little different with Ollantaytambo Adventure Center. OAC offers a two-day trip starting in Ollantaytambo, that's heavy on the trekking with a stint in a car. It's $240 for two people, and $230 with three or more.
Rutas Ancestrales Follow the trails the Incas used to trek. For a map, more information or to hire a guide, visit the INC office located in the fortress monument.
