You will be able to do this and more during this tour while riding a 4-wheel metal beast: an ATV (quad bike). Admire the huge rural meadows that characterize the great Sacred Valley and get to the Salt Mines of Maras, which have been exploited since the Inca age and whose origin still remains a mystery today. Then you will visit the archeological site of Moray, known as a laboratory of Inca agricultural research, where the particular layout of its platforms can still be seen clearly. Let the mysterious Sacred Valley amaze you while being on a quad bike! If you want to add some more adventure to the tour you can combine this quad bike tour and zipline on the same day.
