Maras and Moray by ATVs

If you go with your partner, you have two options: to go both in an ATV and only one drives at a time, or you can each go in your own vehicle.

Bungee jumping

Did you know that Cusco has the highest Bungee Jumping in Latin America? If you and your partner like extreme adventure sports, you can not miss this experience: a jump from a stand located 122 meters high, only tied to your ankles, with a safety harness at the waist and with incredible views of the Sacred Valley.
