A once-in-a-lifetime tour of culture-rich Peru that uncovers the mysteries of the Incas, including Lake Titicaca and Machu Picchu - includes all travel and more
Soak up the 5,000-year history of the Incas with an epic adventure across Peru, from the colonial capital city and remote islands housing traditional communities to the archaeological capital of the Americas, the mighty Machu Picchu and deep into the age-old Amazon rainforest.
First stop: the colonial-cool capital of Lima. Unfurling from the craggy cliff-flanked coastline, the sprawling city is glorious in all its chaotic charm, where modern high-rises rub shoulders with pre-Columbian temples and candy-coloured colonial gems. During your two-night stay, visit the city’s clutch of art-rich galleries and insightful museums, before feasting on plates of ceviche washed down with punchy pisco sours – just save room for the silk-smooth Amazonian chocolate.
Next up, it’s on to Puno for a two-night stay on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Here, you’ll visit Taquile – a tiny speck cast adrift from mainland Peru – swinging by Huayliano to marvel at islanders’ local crafts, before skimming across the mirror-still lake to eye the floating islands of Uros scattered throughout the nature reserve. Cusco is next on the agenda, passing beautiful 17th-century churches, crumbling ruins and picturesque viewpoints en route to the former Inca capital.
After a good night’s sleep, you’ll hop aboard an expedition train to trundle towards your next destination: the awe-inspiring Machu Picchu. Here, you can marvel at the mysterious ruins of the 550-year-old Inca citadel presiding proudly over the Sacred Valley, against a dramatic backdrop of forest-cloaked Andes Mountains.
After a one-night stay in Aguas Calientes, it’s back to Cusco for three further nights, where you'll have ample time to explore the archaeological capital of the Americas on your own clock and on an optional (chargeable) whirlwind tour that offers further insight into its rich heritage. You'll then fly to Puerto Maldonado and continue into the deep, lush and enticing Amazon for your final two nights.
