Hot-Air Ballooning
Since 1988 a company based in Cusco, Globos de los Andes, has been running tourist hot-air balloon flights over the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Setting off in the morning from the community of Maras, 55 kilometres from the city of Cusco, balloonists take to the air and enjoy an unusual view of the Cusco countryside: its snowcapped peaks, several archaeological sites and main towns.The company also runs flights dedicated to bungee-jumping over the Cusco area, including the Inca fortress of Sacsayhuamán. Please contact the hotel to find out more.

Mysticism
Peru's folk healers draw on their knowledge of the past to cure their patients in ceremonies imbued with a mixture of traditional medicine, Catholicism and natural plant extracts, such as the San Pedro cactus.

Weaving
Contemporary Andean weavers are heirs to a rich textile repertoire that goes back thousands of years. Weaving workshops, lectures by weavers and textile experts, and visits to Peru's leading collections of ancient textiles can be arranged.

Archaeology
The pre-Inca and Inca cultures of Peru created some of the most stunning artwork and monuments known to mankind. Visit Peru's major archaeological museums, slide lectures and visits to excavations in process, when possible.
