Itinerary

Lima

Welcome to Peru! Upon arrival at the Lima airport you’ll be transferred to our hotel in the popular Miraflores district of the city. The rest of the day is free to relax or explore the city before our welcome meeting at 6pm this evening where you will meet your tour leader.

The Amazon Jungle

Lima - Puerto Maldonado. This morning we head to the airport for our flight to Puerto Maldonado, our gateway to the Amazon jungle. Upon arrival we’ll travel by canoe to our lodge for the next two nights. After a break for lunch we’ll stretch our legs with a jungle walk, during which we’ll learn all about primary and secondary rainforest. This evening we’ll embark on a Twilight River excursion to learn about ecosystems, constellations and nocturnal animals, followed by a delicious dinner.

The Amazon Jungle

On day 3 we hop in a canoe and sail out onto our lodge’s private cocha. Whilst floating on the peaceful water, you can try some native fishing techniques and admire the stunning surroundings. We’ll then disembark the boat at the ruins of the Fitzcarrald steam boat and learn a bit about its history before heading back to our lodge for lunch. Next up is a cruise to Rolin river island, where we’ll do a spot of bird-watching and wander through its beautiful vegetation. Finally we will check out the ldoge’s inland collpa, walking to one of their four clay licks. After learning all about collpas and looking for animal tracks we will head back to the lodge for dinner.

Cusco

Puerto Maldonado - Cuzco. We take a canoe ride back to Puerto Maldonado for our flight to Cuzco on day 4. After hotel check in spend the rest of the day at leisure adjusting to the altitude.

Cusco

 The following morning we enjoy a tour of Cuzco and its nearby ruins taking in some of the city's most important landmarks, such as the Plaza de Armas, Koricancha Temple and the Sacsayhuaman Fortress. The afternoon is yours to do as you please.

Sacred Valley

Cuzco - The Sacred Valley. Today we enjoy a full day tour of the Sacred Valley. Our first stop is the popular Pisac Markets, where artisans from the region get together and exchange or buy and sell their products. There's plenty of time to explore the market, see the variety of colourful handicrafts and textiles on offer, and barter for souvenirs. This afternoon we visit Ollantaytambo's fortress with its enormous Inca terraces constructed on the side of a steep mountain. After a tour through the area we check into our hotel for the night.

Machu Picchu

Sacred Valley – Machu Picchu - Cuzco. Today is the day you’ve been waiting for as you finally get a chance to witness first hand one of the most fascinating ancient sites in the world. In the morning we will take the train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes and then board the bus to Machu Picchu – remember to look out the windows as the scenery along the way is utterly breathtaking. 

Situated on a mountain ridge above the Urubamba River and surrounded by tropical forest, the Inca city enjoys a truly spectacular setting. When we get there, a guided tour will take us through the citadel. Built in the classical Inca style with polished dry-stone walls and terraces that seem to have been crafted naturally from the rock escarpments, Machu Picchu is a spectacular testament to the greatness of the Inca civilisation. The ruins are divided into the Urban and Agricultural Sectors with features ranging from terraced fields and water fountains to storage buildings, guardhouses and religious temples as well as bridges on the trails leading out of the citadel. After the tour there's plenty of time independently explore and take photos before we take the train back to Cuzco from Aguas Calientes.

Cusco

Our tour comes to an end after breakfast today. A transfer will take you to the airport for your onward travel, or opt to end your tour in Lima with our Cuzco to Lima flight add-on. Adios!
