Itinerary

Day 1 Lima
Welcome to Peru! On arrival in Lima, you will be transferred to your hotel. The day is free for you to spend at your leisure, and you may arrive at any time. In the evening we will have a group meeting to discuss the plan for the next 10 days, answer questions and go for a first Peruvian dinner out.

Day 2 Cusco
An early morning flight takes us high into the Andes to Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire. After lunch we have a guided tour of Cusco and the ruins just outside the city. You will learn about this city’s fascinating past and present. There is free time for you to shop for souvenirs and experience the sights and sounds of this colonial town. If you feel energetic after trying the highland cuisine you can enjoy Cusco’s wild nightlife.

Day 3 Sacred Valley / Ollantaytambo
We make an excursion along the Sacred Valley of the Incas, hiking at the impressive ruins of Pisac and Ollantaytambo and visiting various Quechua towns. We spend the night at Ollantaytambo.

Day 4, 5, 6 Inca Trail

Today starts the Inca Trail. In the morning we will meet our team of guides, porters and the cook that will take care of us during the hike. After a short bus ride we arrive at the starting point of the 4-day trail to Machu Picchu. We hike through the Andes mountain range to the Lost City of Incas, passing through sierra and cloud forest landscapes.

Day 7 Machu Picchu – Cusco
On the fourth day of the Inca Trail, our steep assents over mountain passes will be rewarded as the mist rises off the mountains revealing the Forgotten City of Machu Picchu. We’ll have a guided tour of the site, and then you will have plenty of time on your own to enjoy the peace and beauty of Machu Picchu before we take the train back to Cusco.

Day 8 Urubamba river rafting – Puno
On our way to Puno we make a stop at the Urubamba River where you have the option to do a whitewater rafting trip. We continue our journey to Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

In the morning we take a boat on Lake Titicaca to visit the floating reed islands of the Uros people. In the afternoon we visit the ruins of Sillustani and fly back to Lima for a last night out.
