Cusco and the Sacred Valley
The ancient Inca capital of Cusco is the starting point for our Andean Adventure. A fascinating fusion of Inca and Spanish building styles, combined with the colourful local sights and sounds, means there's plenty to be explored. From here we head to the Sacred Valley via Pisac, famous for its bustling market, to Ollantaytambo where there's time to try white water rafting on the Urubamba River.
Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu
Threading our way through the Cordillera de los Andes, we should enjoy marvellous views of the ancient cloud forest and glaciated peak of Salkantay (6271m) - the 'Maker of Awesome Skies'. We'll camp near crumbling Inca sites where the only access is on foot. Finally, we descend the winding stone steps to Machu Picchu itself: straddling two peaks of the Andes, the terraces, residences and temples perfectly preserve the ancient world of the Incas. After exploring this unique site, we board the train back to Cusco.
Explore the Amazon with a 3-night extension...
It is possible to extend your stay in Peru with a 3-night sojourn in a jungle lodge deep in Amazonia. Flying to Puerto Maldonado, you can explore the Amazon jungle by dugout canoe and also on foot for close-up views of exotic tropical flora. There's plenty of time to relax and soak up the atmosphere.
