You will arrive in Cusco and be transferred to Calca which will be your main base throughout this program.
Calca is a colourful little town, nestled amongst the mountains in the Sacred Valley, 9,600 ft above sea level, on the Urubamba River. It is known for its temperate climate, checkerboard fertile fields, tranquillity, and towering mountains.
It is very central which makes it a great location from which to explore and home to Mount Pitusiray – considered as one of the most important mountain gods in the region.
In Calca you will either be staying in a homestay or a hotel depending on the time of year. Homestays are an option outside of the month of January and June/July. There are about 6-7 families who will host, each family has up to 2 beds for hosting.
If homestays are not an option for certain program departures, then you will stay in a hotel that is close to the main plaza of Calca.
3 meals a day provided.
