Itinerary

Day 01: Cusco – City Tour

Welcome at Cusco’s airport by our transfer and transportation to your hotel (Coca tea courtesy).

Day 02: June 24th: Inti Raymi Festival or festival of the Sun.

After visiting the great Incan architectural achievements it will be clear to you that the Sun was the main deity worshiped in the Inca culture. In today´s Inti Raymi all of the significant Sun Festival rituals are re-enacted (don´t worry, the llama sacrifices are simulated!). This special day also includes The New Fire Celebration. No fires were allowed in the city on this day until a hollow mirror was used to concentrate the sunlight onto animal fur and kindling. Only then were all other fires started from this source.

You will see the Inca carried through the streets of Cusco on a litter and toasted with chicha (a fermented corn drink). The ceremony concludes with the Inca giving a speech in the native Quechua language.
