7D | Guaranteed Departure | From Lima to Cusco

What to expect?

This seven-day guaranteed departure tour through the Imperial City is the perfect mix between history and outdoor activities. Appreciate the magnificent natural legacy of the 7-color Mountain, as well as the historical heritage of Machu Picchu, the heart of the most important pre-colonial empire in South America. Also, explore the cities of Lima and Cusco, where you will discover a great testament to the history of the country.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Lima: Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the Peruvian capital combines history with modernity. In its historical centre, colonial architectural structures stand right next to the Pacific Ocean, all seeped in a deeply bohemian atmosphere

Cusco: The ancient Inca capital is a unique blend of pre – Columbian past and Spanish architecture. Its temples, squares and streets are surrounded by hills that amazing places like Sacsayhuamán and Quenqo, 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.

Vinicunca: Around 100 km southeast of Cusco, rests one of the most beautiful wonders of nature: the 7-Colour Mountain. This place, also known as the Rainbow Mountain, has an altitude of 5,200 metres above sea level. The 7-colour Mountain is a natural wonder that enchants visitors from all over the world. The accumulation of minerals during hundreds of thousands of years give it its particular and magical colouration.
