If you are traveling to Cusco from anywhere outside of Peru, you will have to transit through Lima. Lima has direct connections with major cities in the USA and Canada through Delta, United, American, LATAM, Air Canada and with Europe through KLM, Air France, British Airways, Iberia and LATAM. From other Latin American countries, LATAM and Avianca offer good connections. Cusco is very well connected with Lima by air with ~40 daily flights operated by LATAM and Sky Airlines Peru. The flight takes ~90 minutes and is typically priced at USD ~60.
An Airport Express bus (typical fare USD ~8 one way) connects Lima city centre with Jorge Chávez Airport in regular intervals, from 06:00 to 22:00 hours. Taxis cost USD ~15 one way. From Cusco airport to city centre, taxis are the best option (typical fare USD 3.5 - 5). We recommend established cab companies only. Lima to Cusco by bus is not a good option as it’s a long (~1100km), mountainous route and takes ~24 hours. From Arequippa you can take a bus to Cusco which typically takes 10.5 hours to cover ~512km and the fare is in the range of USD 15-30.
Paragliding in the Sacred Valley is one of the most adrenaline pumping and unique ways to see the breath-taking landscapes in the Peruvian Andes. Jumping off a cliff and soaring through high altitudes above the ground below to see rising thermals, lakes, and mountains from a birds-eye-view is a once in a lifetime experience.
The key considerations are the weather conditions and learning how to use the paragliding equipment. If the weather conditions are unstable with strong winds, rain, or turbulence, the pilot can postpone or cancel the trip. In case this happens, it is important to be flexible on when to do this activity. Prior to departing the pilot will give instructions and demonstrate how the paragliding equipment works, which will be useful in this as well as other paragliding adventures you undertake.
