Cusco – Anta – Killarumiyoc – Cusco

Set off on an unforgettable ATV adventure, offering two distinct departures to suit your preference: a refreshing early start at 9:00 am or a more tranquil experience beginning at 2:00 pm.

Your adventure kicks off in the historic city of Cusco, the gateway to the Andes.

Along the way, witness the grandeur of the Zurite terraces, a testament to Peru’s rich agricultural heritage and architectural prowess.

The pinnacle of our excursion is the arrival at the sacred site of Killarumiyoc. This ancient Incan ceremonial center, dedicated to celestial observations, is a window into the past. Stand in awe before the “Stone Moon,” a crescent-shaped marvel skillfully carved into rock, symbolizing the deep connection the Incas had with the cosmos.

As our journey winds down, we make our way back to Cusco, carrying with us memories of an exhilarating ride, intertwined with a profound cultural experience. This one-day excursion is not just an adventure on wheels but a journey through time, offering a unique perspective on the rich history and stunning landscapes of Peru.
