The coloured dress and bowler hat of the weather beaten lady selling potatoes in every shape, size and colour. The disdainful stare of a llama as you cross the altiplano. The cacophony of macaws at the salt lick in the rainforest. The views€ross Lake Titicaca from Taquile, a view fit for the gods. All the colourful shades of Peru. We start in Lima, the bustling capital, with time to see the highlights. We fly up to Arequipa where views are dominated by El Misti (5800m), the dormant but still impressive volcano. The climate here is warm and pleasant all year around. We have time to enjoy the colonial architecture and particularly a trip around the Santa Catalina monastery, dating from 1570. It looks little changed in all that time. Next we drive€ross the altiplano with herds of vicuna and llama grazing beside the road to the arid Colca Canyon, one of the natural wonders of the world. Watch condors rising on early morning thermals it is not uncommon to feel the draft as they soar close by, unconcerned by your presence. We sail to Lake Titicacas unique floating islands and travel out to Taquile Island for probably the best walk of the holiday. The views€ross Lake Titicaca to the Andes range are as spectacular as any. Cuzco has amazing Inca temples and fortresses, and we visit one of the best Andean markets at Pisac during our stay in the Sacred Valley. The train journey to Machu Picchu is just as breath-taking as the Lost City of the Incas itself. Finally, by the Madre de Dios River in the Amazonian rainforest, we can enjoy unimaginable flora and fauna more diverse than anywhere else in the world!
