Floating City of Belen
3 Activities
The only way to explore Belén is to hire a canoe and guide to take you through the canals, and the sturdier city center on stilts where the famed street market is located. Peruse the stalls for tropical fruits and herbal medicines and healing elixirs brought in daily from more than 150 native communities upriver. If you would rather let a guide take care of the arrangements, visit the town as part of a larger full-day excursion.Most tours cruise along the Itaya river in a canoe, making stops in special places along the way such as the native community of Yagua to learn about the daily life of the Bora people, before navigating the Momon river to see the filming locations of Hollywood movies such as Anaconda and Terminator and visiting the Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm. If you have more time, take a two-day tour that ventures to Monkey Island, a small island which shelters a large number of monkeys in their natural habitat, before overnighting in an eco-lodge.

Huaca Rajada (Sipán)

Most day tours include guided excursions to the Royal Tombs Museum of Sipán and Túcume (Valley of the Pyramids), the 8th-century site encompassing dozens of mounds and pyramids once belonging to the Sicán culture.

Awana Kancha
24 Activities
Awana Kancha is close enough to Cusco to explore in just a few hours; however, the textile mill’s vicinity to Pisac and other Inca archaeological sites means that tours often combine the outpost with other attractions on a full-day tour. First-time visitors short on time can get an introduction to Cusco’s major sights and observe local craftspeople spinning wool and weaving textiles on a half-day tour.

Santiago de Surco

Inca Trail
262 Activities
For many travelers to Machu Picchu, hiking the Inca Trail through the Sacred Valley is as much a part of the bucket list experience as seeing the ruins themselves. It typically takes four days to cover the distance between Cusco and Aguas Calientes, with overnights at Huayllabamba, Pacamayo, and Huinay Huayna on the way. Shorter one- or two-day treks are also possible for more inexperienced walkers. To walk the trail, you need to join a group of fellow hikers led by a licensed guide. Trail permits are limited, with only 500 hikers permitted on the trail at any given time (including tour guides and porters), so you'll need to book ahead.
