But this tranquil hideaway, designed to resemble an Andean village, also has much to offer within its own leafy gardens. Take a gentle hike around the impressive Inca site of Moray.
The nearby salt pans of Maras, with plots passed down through the generations, are another unforgettable sight, especially when the sun glints off the hundreds of dazzlingly white salt pools etched into the green hillside. For a more adrenalin-inducing adventure, bounce along mud and dirt roads to these ancient sites by quad bike. The twists and turns through the Andes of the Urubamba River helped to form the beautiful landscapes of the Sacred Valley.
The gentle Class I and Class II rapids along the stretch of river near Ollantaytambo make it an ideal spot for beginners, while still packing a heady shot of adrenalin. Beyond the exhilarating whitewater roller-coaster ride and getting drenched in ice-cold spray, there are peaceful sections where you can savour the sunshine as you float between Inca agricultural terraces and buff-coloured canyons under a cobalt-blue sky. The ride threads through fragrant eucalyptus forests and fields of red quinoa and purple lupins, across gentle streams and into age-old agricultural communities, all flanked by the majestic mountains of the Sacred Valley.
