National Geographic Traveller (UK) has teamed up with Peru's tourism board, PROMPERÚ, and experiential travel group Explora to offer a four-night, all-inclusive stay in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru
Exploring archaeological Incan sites, following the Urubamba River by bike or trekking on a high-altitude glacier near the ancient city of Cusco are some of the immersive outings designed by Explora. The winner will have more than 20 expert-guided adventures to choose from including walks, hikes, bike rides and drives, all designed to facilitate cultural and historical discovery — from traditional villages to the vestiges of fallen empires in the Andean pampa.
Explora pioneered high-end adventure travel in South America, providing guests with access to some of the continent’s most remote areas from a luxury base. Explora Valle Sagrado is in one of the region’s most remote and ancient corn plantations, close to the village of Urquillos. Its design is inspired by its surroundings — high Andean mountains arranged around a valley.
Your prize: A four-night stay for two at Explora Sacred Valley. Includes flights, transfers from Cusco, full-board accommodation and a choice of expert-guided excursions.
