Lima

Coastal Lima is one the largest cities in South America, making it a fantastic place to begin your Peruvian adventure. Explore the catacombs beneath the city, known for being one of the best-preserved crypts on the continent, and delve into pre-Columbian artistry and a fascinating archaeological collection at Larco Museum. Got time to spare? Be sure to sample some of the local fare, perhaps try your hand at sandboarding, and don’t miss a gentle amble around the 16th-century Plaza de Armas.

Amazon Rainforest

Your Amazon adventure begins in Puerto Maldonado, where you’ll wind your way down the clay-coloured Madre de Dios River until you reach the hidden jungle lodge you’ll call home for the next two nights. Set off on foot to explore the depths of the jungle and the wonders of the protected Tambopata National Reserve, teeming with exotic wildlife and tropical fauna and flora. Climb the exhilarating Inkaterra Canopy Walkway to experience the rainforest and its animals from the jungle canopy. Join a guided twilight river boat ride to witness the enchanting day to night transformation of the rainforest, as it comes alive with the curious croaks and calls of the jungle’s nocturnal creatures. A little peckish after your jungle adventures? Tuck into hearty buffet lunches and sublime à la carte dinners, craftedusing local Amazon ingredients.

Cusco

Explore the delights of Cusco; wander the streets admiring the fascinating Inca stonework and colonial buildings of the city – the home of the Inca Empire for two centuries. Take your time touring the sights – you’ll be acclimatising to the 3,450m altitude! Visit the Temple of Qorikancha, the most significant temple of the Incan Empire. Marvel at the important archaeological Inca sights, overlooking the city with their subterranean tunnels and zig-zag carved stone channels. Back above ground, head to the picturesque neighbourhood of San Blas – browse the area’s artisan workshops and art studios before resting your legs in one of the city’s best bars or restaurants. Immerse yourself in the Peruvian culture and food with a cooking class that will teach you traditional recipes, handed down over generations. Your efforts will be rewarded with refreshing drinks and a delicious four-course tasting menu. Fancy some time to unwind? Enjoy a leisurely day stand-up paddleboarding and lunching at Lake Piuray, just a short ride away from Cusco.

Sacred Valley

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is a corridor in the Andes rich with fertile green plains, dotted with Inca ruins and peppered with local villages. View the entire valley from El Mirador and learn about the history of the Incas. Wander the ruins of Pisac and Ollantaytambo, and enjoy the cobblestone streets and local market, where you can sample local food and get a glimpse of traditional rural life. Get a real taste of the Sacred Valley by spending time at a working farm, where you’ll learn about hacienda life and local food production before sampling a farm-to-table lunch, with the beautiful valley as your backdrop.

Full-day tour incl. Hacienda Sarapampa

4* Casa Andina Premium Sacred Valley Hotel (or similar)

Machu Picchu

Wind your way through the valley by train to the depths of the Peruvian cloud forest, high amongst the Andean Mountain peaks. From here it’s a short but steep bus ride to the 2,430m-high ‘Lost City of the Incas’, Machu Picchu. Tucked away on a ridge with a unique subtropical climate, you’ll find the historic 15th-century Incan citadel of Machu Picchu, which remained a secret for many years until it was discovered in 1911. Along with a local guide, explore the upper terrace and ruins of this archaeological wonder whilst soaking up the incredible panoramic views. When the time arrives to say farewell to Machu Picchu, you’ll begin the journey back to Cusco. Peruse the cultural and archaeological gems of the city at your own leisurely pace…
