8 D | Guaranteed Departure | From Lima to Cusco
Explore Peru by air, sea and land on this eight-day tour of the archaeological, cultural and natural treasures of this fascinating country. Discover the mysterious Nazca Lines from the sky, see the abundant fauna of the uninhabited Ballestas Islands as you sail by boat, and explore the remains of the Inca Empire and the country’s beautiful colonial cities by land.
Lima: Named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the capital of Peru is a blend of history and modernity. The colonial historic centre, the bohemian district and its modern attractions sit on the edge of the Pacific Ocean.
Nazca Lines: Take a once-in-a-lifetime flight over the desert and witness these mysterious geoglyphs that were carved into the ground by early Peruvian civilisations around 2000 years ago.
Ballestas Islands: Behold the natural diversity of the sea that surrounds these protected island sanctuaries. Home to such fascinating creatures as sea lions, dolphins and the Humboldt penguin, they are a must-see for wildlife lovers.
Cusco: The ancient Inca capital is a unique blend of a pre-Columbian past and Spanish architecture. Its temples, squares and streets are surrounded by hills that hide fantastic archaeological sites such as Sacsayhuamán, Qenqo, Puca Pucará and Tambomachay.
Machu Picchu: The ‘lost city of the Incas’ is what draws thousands of people to Peru each year. Hidden among the vegetation, this mountain-top citadel, built in complete harmony with the landscape, hosts a wealth of rooms, temples, bridges and religious sites that offer the visitor a chance to get closer to Peru’s fascinating past.
