Enjoy your trip to Peru with the best and most unique rates!
Day 1. LIMA
Upon arrival in Lima, there will be a reception at the airport and will then be transported in our executive coach to the deluxe 5 star Country Club Hotel. You will have the option of a pre-dinner massage in the hotel’s exquisite restaurant.
Day 2. LIMA – CUZCO
In the morning, you will be transported to the airport for your flight to Cuzco. Once you have landed, there will be a reception and you will then be transported to the five star Monasterio Hotel. After lunch at the hotel, a private, guided walking tour of the city of Cuzco will follow. This includes exploring the Main Square, the Cathedral and the Koricancha or Temple of the Sun. You will then return to your hotel for dinner and a folkloric show.
Day 3. CUZCO
After breakfast, enjoy a tour of the ruins surrounding the Inca capital. This tour includes the Sacsayhuaman Fortress overlooking the city of Cuzco-a pre-Inca architectural masterpiece; Kenko, a rock sanctuary whose main attraction is the monolithic altar representing a puma; the red fortress of Puca-Pucara; and finally Tambomachay. Following the tour which lasts 2.5 hours, we will have lunch at La Casona del Inca, situated in the hills above Cuzco with a stunning view of the city. Afterwards, you will have the rest of the day to relax enjoy the city.
Day 4. CUZCO – MORAY – MARAS – OLLANTAYTAMBO
After breakfast, we will depart by private vehicle to just outside Chinchero, where we will begin our mountain bike ride, totaling over 22 miles of back roads and trails. Initially, we will be on backroads for approximately 1 hour, climbing several hills, witnessing scenes of rural Andean life, before arriving at the Inca site of Moray. This is a fascinating, unique ruin; a fabulous amphitheater of terracing that was used as an agricultural experimental site by the Incas. They took advantage of the microclimates produced by the varying altitudes to breed new varieties of their crops.
We will then retrace our route briefly and leave the backroads, transitioning to a 2-track road that later becomes a trail. The route is mostly flat and downhill, with one steep and technical downhill slope, followed by a short but steep uphill. Those who prefer to ride in the support vehicle are free to do so.
Following a 45 minute ride, we will reach the village of Maras where we will rejoin our support vehicle in the town plaza for a picnic lunch. Then, it is back on the bikes for a mostly downhill ride to the salt pans of Maras. The salt pans are an unforgettable site. The people of Maras have diverted a salt-laden spring coming out of the hillside, evaporating the water to collect salt, as their ancestors have done for centuries. We will walk among the salt pans, admiring a scene largely unchanged from Inca times.
From the salt pans we have a final technical bike ride, downhill into the Sacred Valley town of Urubamba. On this half hour section, there are few rocky drops that can be either ridden or walked. There is also the option of taking a support van along another route. Upon arrival to Urubamba you will be transferred to Ollantaytambo for accommodation at Pakaritampu Hotel and will have dinner there.
Day 5. OLLANTAYTAMBO – URUBAMBA RIVER – RAFTING – PISAC
Once you have finished breakfast, we will partake in the spectacular mountain setting of Ollantaytambo, the ruins set on the edge of town. Before transferring to our put-in, is Panchar, some 10 minutes from Ollantaytambo. After a briefing in techniques and safety, we will commence the beginning of your rafting adventure on class III and IV rapids for 4 hours. This will be followed by a picnic lunch by the banks of the river before returning to Ollantaytambo around 15:00. A visit to Pisac Market (Tuesdays, Thursday, and Sundays only) is a good option before driving back to Ollantaytambo, heading straight for the ruins on the edge of town. The ruins are well worth a guided tour as this is the last undefeated bastion of the Incas. There will be an early dinner and a briefing on the up and coming Royal Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
Day 6. ROYAL INCA TRAIL TO MACHU PICCHU
There will be an early rise and breakfast in order to catch the train headed to Machu Picchu. We will ride aboard the Vistadome train, taking in the enthralling views of the encompassing mountains, with snowcapped peaks in the distance as we slowly lose elevation and head into the high altitude cloud forest. Our destination, the Machu Picchu gateway town of Aguas Calientes is reachable only by train or air and is nestled among stunning, steep mountains shrouded in the cloud forest.
We will then begin the start of the Royal Inca Trail, for which we will depart the train before reaching Aguas Calientes. We will commence our hike by crossing a hanging bridge over the Urubamba River to approach the small but interesting Inca archeological complex of Cachabamba. After a brief visit of this site, we will begin a 4 hour ascent to the ruins of Winay Wayna of 2700m/8829ft. From here the trail winds downhill (45 minutes) into the lost citadel of Mach Picchu where you will arrive at your accommodation, the Sanctuary Lodge Hotel, right at the entrance of Machu Picchu. Here you will have dinner and prepare for your next adventure tomorrow.
Day 7. MACHU PICCHU
You will have the pleasure of a full day’s private guided tour of Machu Picchu, the most spectacular ancient city in the world. Built by the Inca Pachacutec, this architectural feat is comprised of stone blocks fitted with masterful precision; Machu Picchu harmoniously blends into the mountain landscapes. There are many theories as to the origins of Machu Picchu, however three of the most accepted ideas include a temple to the sun; a fortress against the jungle inhabitants; or a sanctuary for the Incas. This fabulous city has houses, temples, warehouses, a large central square- all connected by narrow steps and is surrounded by terraces cut into the mountain side which were used for agriculture.
After the tour, you will have free range to enjoy this magical and spiritual wonder. There will be lunch at Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge before returning to Cuzco in the evening aboard the luxury Hiram Bingham train. This will be followed be reception and transfer to Monasterio Hotel.
Day 8. CUZCO – PUNO
You will be transported to the railway station for the wonderful trans-altiplano Inca express. Lunch will be served onboard the ‘Orient Express’ of Peru. Along the route there will be plenty of opportunities to see alpacas or vicuῆas in their natural habitat along with the marvelous scenery of the altiplano. There will be a stop at the highest point, La Raya, 4319m/14169ft as well. Alternatively, you may also fly to Juliaca and then transfer to Puno. There will be reception and transfer to the 5 star Libertado Hotel, situated on the very shore of Lake Titicaca.
Day 9. KAYAK LAKE TITICACA
After an early breakfast, you will be transported to Llachon. Before we get into the pristine waters of Lake Titicaca, you will be outfitted with your kayak jacket, spray skirts, life vests and receive a brief kayak lesson for our paddle along the peninsula and across the channel to Isla Taquile. Kayaking the clear blue water of this huge lake sitting at 3810m/12,500ft is a memorable experience. We will pass village life on the shores of the peninsula. Then, as we head across the channel of Isla Taquile, we gain our first views across the full distance of the lake, the total distance is about 8.9km/5.5mi. In our stable sea kayaks we will be able to take our time and perhaps take a break on the water for a snack. Upon reaching Isla Taquile, we will walk 20 minutes or so (less than a mile) to have lunch. After lunch, we again will board our kayaks for a short kayaking adventure around the Isla Taquile, affording enchanting views of the hills and mountains surrounding the most navigable lake in the world-all the way into Bolivia-and a unique view of the island.
We will rejoin the support boat for a ride back to the lakeside city of Puno, stopping along the way to the floating islands of Uros. The floating islands, constructed from the reeds that grow around the lake, date back centuries ago when people began living on them as a way to avoid conflict with other civilizations living around the lake. You will then be brought back to your hotel and have a farewell dinner.
Day 10. PUNO – JULIACA – LIMA
After breakfast, we will head towards Juliaca, with an excursion to the Silluastani towers. The pre-Inca Silluastani funeral towers lie next to Umayo Lake and form part of one of the largest and most important necropolis’ in the world. This was the place where both the altiplano civilization and the Incas with their wives, ‘Collas’ honored their dead through the preparation of the afterlife. They were abandoned when the first Spanish Conquistadors arrived. With over 90 chulpas (tombs), all built from volcanic rock, those of the Inca’s construction can be easily identified by their finer detail. Afterwards, you will be brought to Juliaca airport for the flight back to Lima and transported to the deluxe 5 star Country Club Hotel. You will have time to relax and enjoy a health spa before a delicious dinner at an internationally renowned Lima restaurant.
Day 11. LIMA
You will have a leisurely day before your transport to the airport and your return flight home.
