Inca Trail & Amazon Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Lima

Get acquainted with Peruvian culture on a guided walking tour that takes in the sights and delights of this irrepressible capital.

Day 2 Cuzco

Cuzco is the gateway to Machu Picchu and a city with majestic architecture, impressive ruins, a lively town centre and cultural significance around every cobblestone corner.

Day 3 Sacred Valley/Ollantaytambo

The Sacred Valley was once the heartland of the Inca Empire and now contains picturesque villages and impressive archeological sites. Located in the Urubamba Valley, the city of Ollantaytambo is an incredible archeological site and the starting point of the classic Inca Trail trek.

Days 4-7 Inca Trail/Machu Picchu/Cuzco

Winding around mountains, through valleys and up steep slopes, the iconic Inca Trail is a series of beautiful vistas and challenging hikes all the way to Machu Picchu. Built sometime in the 15th century and rediscovered in 1911, the staggering ruins of Machu Picchu were thought to be an estate for the Incan emperor, Pachacuti.

Day 8 Cuzco

A World Heritage site set among red-green hills with ruins scattered close by, Cuzco is impressive in every way - be it history, culture, nightlife or architecture.

Days 9-10 Amazon Jungle

Travel up river in a motorised canoe to an eco-friendly jungle lodge. Fall asleep to a chorus of nocturnal creatures and wake to exotic birdcalls. Take a guided walk through the jungle with a local guide and learn about the Amazon's exotic wildlife and indigenous inhabitants, as well as the medicinal properties and practical uses of native jungle plants.

Days 11-12 Lima

Leave the amazing Amazon behind and return to Puerto Maldonado, where a flight will take the group back to Lima. The trip ends here but there's plenty still to discover in Peru's intriguing capital, so perhaps plan to spend a few extra days exploring the sights.
