Day 2

Lima

This is the starting point for your adventure. Meet your group, then perhaps soak up some of the sights – as one of South America's largest cities there's plenty to do here, from visiting one of the many museums or the cathedral, to stocking up on some local souvenirs.

Day 3

Tambopata

Fly from Lima to Tambopata. Spend some time relaxing in a hammock, enjoying the local swimming hole, before embarking on a wildlife-spotting night tour. The next morning, head out early to catch the jungle at its wildest (and coolest). Walk slowly through the forest searching for wildlife before heading out on an oxbow lake by canoe. Search for anaconda, the elusive giant river otter or black caiman. Even if you don't spot these shy creatures, there are plenty of other birds, interesting plants and other animals to discover.

Included Excursion:
Wildlife-spotting night walk, jungle tour, caiman-spotting cruise

You’ll ascend to 4,198m at Dead Woman’s Pass, pass through sweeping cloud forest, and spy the beautiful terraces of the Winay Wayna ruins. Before dawn on the final day, you’ll reach Sun Gate just in time to witness daybreak over 15th-century Machu Picchu…

Day 10

Machu Picchu

See the Inca city of Machu Picchu in the soft morning light, take a guided tour of the complex and admire the gorgeous mountain scenery. A World Heritage site and definitely one for the bucket list, Machu Picchu is one of the finest examples of preserved Incan settlements anywhere, and is further enhanced by its dramatic natural setting. Your guide will tell you about the history of the site, and show you around the key sights including the Temple of the Sun and the Room of the Three Windows. Perhaps visit the Inca bridge, suspended over a 579-metre-high cliff and with fabulous views of the mountains (optional extra cost). Return to Cusco by scenic train.
