Days 2 - 4: The Amazon
A short flight takes us to the jungle community of Puerto Maldonado, the starting point for our journey into the Amazon. From here a bus, followed by a motorised canoe ride downriver brings us to our jungle lodge.

After an early breakfast we set out on a guided walk of the rainforest. We’ll trek through dense jungle and marshland whilst our guide points out the various species of bird and plant found in the forest.

Later we enjoy the view of the lake and the canopy wildlife from a viewing platform. Here you’ll be able to see parrots, toucans, and herons as well as turtles and caiman. After lunch back at our jungle lodge we’ll spend the rest of the afternoon at the Gamitana River where you can try your hand at fishing or simply take a dip.

The famous Inca ruins of Machu Picchu seen on the Inca Trail - a highlight of our Peru Tours.
Days 5 - 10: The Inca Trail
A full day is spent visiting the Sacred Valley of the Incas, including the Pisac ruins and the famous traditional Indian market of the same name. We also visit the temple fortress of Ollantaytambo with its enormous Inca terracing constructed on the side of a steep mountain. For those who have chosen to hike the Inca Trail Trek, we begin a once in a lifetime journey on the ancient trail of the Incas. During your hike you will cross spectacular passes and visit more Inca ruins en-route to Machu Picchu. A relatively easy 13km walk on day 1 will get you limbered up for the highest pass at Warmiwanusca (4200m) which we reach before lunch time on day 2. After the pass it is all downhill as the trail winds its way along ancient Inca stairs. On our last morning we rise early for the final walk to the Lost City of Machu Picchu and greet daybreak over the famous ‘Sun Gate’. Enjoy free time to explore Machu Picchu on your own. Later you will have the chance to soak your tired muscles in the hot springs at Aguas Calientes before returning to Cuzco by train. If you are not participating in the trek then you will visit Machu Picchu by train and have plenty of free time to enjoy the activities available in and around Cuzco.

In Puno we will learn about the way of life and culture of the Uros people with a boat visit to the floating reed islands. You’ll also get a chance to practice your bartering skills at the colourful market, arguably the best place to pick up an alpaca sweater.

Enjoy the many Peruvian delicacies on offer in the fantastic restaurants and lose yourself in Santa Catalina Convent with its maze of cloisters and decorative buildings. Next we visit the nearby Colca Canyon, considered to be one of the deepest canyons in the world. En-route we travel into the high, barren Andean landscape, passing through ghost towns destroyed by earthquakes while learning about the local fauna and flora of the region. At the canyon we’ll walk along the edge catching sight of soaring giant condors and, if possible, enjoy a relaxing soak in the neighbouring hot springs before taking an overnight bus to Nazca.

These designs, including a monkey, spider and hummingbird are best viewed from the air on an optional flight though there is a viewing tower to enable all visitors to see the distinctive lines and shapes. Later in the day you have time to visit the underground aqueducts, gold mines and ceramic shops, and the extraordinary Chauchilla Cemetery where you can see the ancient mummies which still have skin and hair intact. We then travel deep into the Huacachina oasis where you’ll have the chance to try sand boarding down the enormous dunes. Or for the brave amongst you, take a dip in the murky waters of the lagoon, said to contain therapeutic properties. Travelling down the Atlantic coast we reach the town of Pisco. By boat we head out to the Ballestas Islands, home to thousands of sea lions and teeming with over 150 species of bird life. From the boat you may spot dolphins and seals playing in the waters and our cruise will also take us past the mysterious Candelabra figure engraved on the side of a mountain, believed to be linked with the lines of Nazca.

Inca Trail , Lares Trek or Machhu Pichhu by Train

If you have always dreamed of trekking the Inca Trail you will need to book your trip in advance (4 months is ideal) as the number of Inca Trail permits is limited to 500 per day. Booking early gives us the best opportunity for securing one of these permits.

When booking your tour with us we'll need your full name as it appears in your passport, date of birth, nationality and passport number. With this information we can then apply for a permit.

If the Inca Trail is unavailable, you can opt to hike the Lares Trek. With its breathtaking passes, glacial lakes and hot springs, this less crowded option, which also ends with a full day’s visit to Machu Picchu, is thought to be equally if not more spectacular than the Inca Trail. Alternatively you could also choose to spend your time in Cuzco and take a day trip to Machu Pichhu by train.
