Peru’s Sacred Valley is brimming over with opportunities to get out and explore, particularly for those seeking to get in touch with nature. But, not everyone is looking for an extreme experience, and that is where soft adventures come into play. There are many ways to explore and stimulate the senses for explorers of most ability levels. It’s not necessary to be an avid athlete to go e-biking, zip-lining, horseback riding, or even rock climbing. All of these activities are suitable for beginners and prove to supply unforgettable and unique adventures in the spectacular landscapes surrounding Cusco.
Hop on an e-bike to explore a variety of landscapes in an energetic and sustainable way. Distinct immersive tours with Venturia take the curious and ambitious to view the Sacred Valley on a different level. Imagine pedaling through farther-flung landscapes dotted with mysterious lakes. It’s a way to see a side of Peru as you never imagined was possible.
If you initially think that rock climbing seems a little over-ambitious for a soft adventure, guess again. Perhaps, you’ve never tried assisted rock climbing aka via Ferrata. It’s a very popular adventure for beginners (including kids ages nine and up) on the Via Ferrata under the Natura Vive Skylodge Adventure Suites. With this tour, it’s possible for those with zero experience to strap up and rock-climb a 400-foot vertical course. The assistance of harnesses, carabiners, metal ladders, bridges, and more help travelers ascend above the Sacred Valley with an experience not easily replicated.
Since we’re talking about getting new perspectives of Peru’s grand landscapes; a ziplining tour can get you soaring above the river, canyons, and cliffs without taking flight. Many travelers have no idea that the Sacred Valley can be enjoyed this way, through a network of seven interconnecting zip lines that string up to 2,500 m in length. This activity, also near the Sky Lodge, is appropriate for ages nine and up, with no prior experience required.
For the super ambitious soft adventurer, Venturia offers a combined tour of the above two options for an extra-action packed today. The activities will start in Pachar. First, climb to the top of the wall, then, take the zip line all the way back down again. It’s especially grand for an adrenaline-filled day with the kids but it’s also enjoyable for the young-at-heart of every age.
