Atacama Desert & Geysers
From Chile's cosmopolitan capital, we fly north to the Atacama and our first view of the high Andean peaks. We explore the remarkable Moon Valley on foot and take an early morning trip to watch one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in the Americas; sunrise at El Tatio geysers.
Crossing the Bolivian border, we climb aboard our four wheel drive jeeps that will carry us for several days through a dramatic landscape of coloured lagoons, barren desert and across the breathtaking salt flats of Uyuni until we reach the remarkable colonial city of Potosi. With stops to explore Sucre and La Paz, we take a boat from Copacabana out to the Isla del Sol on Lake Titicaca. Here we have several days to relax. Venturing out to nearby islands by boat and on foot we discover the timeless way of life that endures here.
Train to Machu Picchu
From Puno, the altiplano gives way to deep valleys protected by craggy peaks. Continuing to the Sacred Valley, we take the train to Machu Picchu, where the forbidding landscape of high passes and hidden valleys meant this great Inca legacy remained undiscovered for hundreds of years. Staring down at this iconic stone citadel will seem a fitting end to our journey across the Andes.
