Return to Peru- Secrets of the Sacred Valley

Everyone was in shock!

With soft paint brushes, two volunteers carefully, brushed away the dry soil at the base of an old wall, revealing their startling find, a 1,200 year old bony skull. It was... a human sacrifice, and not the first we would discover!

We were close to the dusty village of Huaro, some 40km southeast of Cuzco, in the renowned and revered Sacred Valley, breaking ground at a new archaeological dig with team members of the Earthwatch Institute. In searching for artifacts from the ancient Wari Empire, a people that predated the Inca's rise to power, what we would unearth, would surprise and confound archaeologists, students and scholars alike.

With more than 300 diverse Inca ruins, the Sacred Valley to this day, holds many forgotten secrets, some of which we had come to uncover.

Join Voyageurfred for the adventure, on a journey of discovery through the lush Urabamba River Valley, deep in the Andes Mountains, exploring the ancient cities of the Inca and Wari people who inhabited this region, while learning the stories, legends and rituals of this unique place.

From remote hillside digs, through rustic villages with beautiful Spanish cathedrals, to the hidden, mountain-top Inca cities of Ollantaytambo and famous Machu Pichuu, it's a remarkable odyssey you don't want to miss.

A vibrant and colourful 90-minute show, it features stunning imagery, startling revelations, memorable Peruvian music... and lively travel lore!
