Nazca Lines & Colca Canyon
Leaving Lima, we drive via Paracas to Nazca where we can view the mysterious Nazca Lines - huge, geometrical figures cut into the stony desert floor (800 AD). Continuing into the highlands, we see the sights of Arequipa (2350m) and journey to the Colca Canyon, one of the most impressive on the planet.

Lake Titicaca & the Altiplano
We travel across the Andes to Lake Titicaca, passing jagged snow-capped peaks. We take a boat out to visit the Uros Indians who live on floating reed islands before continuing to Taquile island, exploring the pre-Inca ruins here. Then we drive across the high Altiplano, pausing at the impressive graves at Sillustani and the pre-Inca temple of Raqchi, to Cusco (3400m), the Inca 'Navel of the Universe'. There's also the chance to visit lively Pisac market, one of Latin America's most famous markets.

Machu Picchu - the Lost City
We travel by train to the amazing ruins of Machu Picchu, which hang on the clouds like an eagle's nest. There may be a chance to follow part of the Inca Trail here, and you'll have the opportunity to do some whitewater rafting through the Sacred Valley, where we spend the last nights of our trip relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere.
