Run by: Journey Latin America
Reference number: MTISI009PERBOLCHI
This thrilling private journey captures the natural and cultural highlights of the southern Andes of Peru, the altiplano of Bolivia and the salt flats straddling the border with Chile.
Arrive in the vast metropolis of the Peruvian capital, Lima, and move on to historic Cusco, the former Inca capital and a treasure trove of Inca stonework and colonial architecture. Travel onwards into the fertile Sacred Valley of the Incas and travel by rail alongside a tempestuous river to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, set on a sub tropical mountain saddle above the Urubamba Valley.
Drive on to the icy, sapphire waters of high-altitude Lake Titicaca and continue overland to vivacious La Paz, squatting in a high altitude bowl at the foot of the massive bulk of snow-stifled Mount Illimani. Continue south and discover the glittering salt pans of Uyuni, an otherworldly experience. Cross the border into Chile and round off the holiday in its capital, Santiago.
