Explora Valle Sagrado is a multi-award winning lodge, integrated into its naturally and culturally rich surroundings. The essence of a stay here is unique compared to other Sacred Valley experiences. Each day is dedicated to introducing you to the most remote locations that are far from the tourist routes, whilst ensuring that key places aren’t missed. It is an opportunity to plan a bespoke journey through this important land with skilled and passionate professionals.
The lodge is within walking distance from Urquillos, a small and traditional settlement home to a lively and proud community that Explora works alongside. It is entirely immersed in the surroundings, there are vestigial Inca remains on site and neighbouring the lodge is an ancient corn plantation that still operates today. Watch the Andean communities thrive from the large windows and adopt the similarly slow pace of life.
Whilst providing outstanding adventures of the Sacred Valley is forefronted in Explora’s work, coming back to a comfortable stay is just as important. The lodge feels Scandinavian in design, with warm wooden panels and vaulted ceilings, the modern interior is airy and light, and beds are absolutely vast. Enjoy the spa in the historical, and divine looking Pumacahua Bathhouse - a 17th century colonial building beautifully restored. Unwind properly after a strenuous day hiking.
This lodge is incredibly immersive, and all bookings are fully inclusive of experiences, accommodation and food. Enjoy the silence and privacy of the privileged location overlooking the cornfields and the Vilcabamba mountain range, and feel the full effect of the Sacred Valley’s magic on daily excursions.
