What to expect?

Pass from the beaches to the mountains of Peru, crossing the mountain range and the high plateau in this fascinating 12-day seat in coach tour. Visit the main historical, cultural and natural attractions of Lima, Paracas, Arequipa, Puno and Cusco. In addition to delighting your sight with unique landscapes, puff up the palate with bold flavors and nourish the essence of the most traditional villages. Close your adventure with a visit to Machu Picchu, the impressive Inca citadel that captivates the entire world.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Lima: Named as a World Heritage Site by Unesco, the Peruvian capital is a sign of history and modernity. Its historic centre maintains the colonial architectural ensembles that coexist closely with the Pacific Ocean and its natural Bohemian essence.

Ballestas Islands : Visit a fascinating marine sanctuary in the Pacific Ocean where sea lions, penguins and birds find refuge.

Arequipa: Take a walk through the ‘prohibited city’ of Santa Catalina, visit the Jesuit church, and enjoy the majestic views of El Misti Volcano.

Lake Titicaca: Take a ride on a catamaran on the highest navigable lake in the world and enjoy memorable stops in Taquile Island and the floating islands of Uros.

Cusco: The ancient Inca capital is a unique blend of pre-Columbian past with Spanish architecture. Its temples, squares and streets are surrounded by hills that hide amazing places like Sacsayhuamán and Qenqo, Puca Pucará and Tambomachay.

Machu Picchu: The ‘lost city of the Incas’ 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 visitors a chance to get closer to Peru’s fascinating past.
