Itinerary

Welcome to Peru! Get a feel for Lima's colourful past on a walk through the well-preserved historic centre.
Water stretches as far as the eye can see at Lake Titicaca, home to many unique communities. Travel to Puno on the shores of the lake and take a tour by boat to the Uros floating islands. Be welcomed by locals on an island homestay and pick up some quality knitted goods handmade by the local men on Taquile Island.
Take time to acclimatise to Cuzco's 3,400 m altitude by taking a slow stroll around the Inca-built walls that line Cuzco's central streets.
Travel through the lush, green Sacred Valley, known to the Incas as Wilcamayo. Stop at Pisac, famous for its colourful artisan markets, and meet with locals en route to Ollantaytambo, a geometrically perfect town.
Wind through Peru's Urubamba Valley on a train ride to Aguas Calientes. Nestled in the cloud forest at the foot of Machu Picchu, Aguas Calientes is a top spot to overnight. Visit a colourful butterfly farm or spend the afternoon resting in natural hot springs.
Join a local guide for a tour of the awesome, unforgettable ruins of Machu Picchu. Return to Cuzco and get reacquainted with this magnetic, charming city.
Rise early and jet to Puerto Maldonado to explore the wilds of the iconic Amazon. With the help of a local guide, spot unique flora and fauna.
Return to Lima for a final dip in Peru's cultural melting pot.
