Zip Line Peru – Sacred Valley

Zip Line is a new alternative adventure for all ages. With the Sacred Valley Via Ferrata – Canopy, you can safely climb a 300m rock wall. During the ascent you will have the opportunity to enjoy the mystical landscape of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. No previous experience is necessary.

The climber is permanently tied to a steel cable that runs through the entire route. Canopy does not require any climbing rope, instead metal ladders, bridges and similar facilities are used. Zip Line demands the physical difficulty of climbing but needs only beginner’s skills, and provides access to very high and extreme vertical sections of a mountain that could only be accessible to experienced rock climbers.

Location: The activity takes place in Pachar, located between Urubamba and Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley.
Difficulty Level: Easy. No previous experience in the same or similar activities is needed.
Note: For private groups rates, please ask.
