First, a brief lesson in kayaking, rowing in the lake with a great view of the snowy peaks of the Urubamba Cordillera, getting close to the native birds who dwell here. Then we get on our mountain bikes and ride over gentle slopes, most of them downhill, passing through Moray, an Inca agricultural experimentation center, until we reach the salt pans at Maras. Here we leave our bikes in our bus and continue on foot down a bridle path that takes us to the Sacred Valley, where we will be picked up by our bus and taken back to the hotel.
