Become acquainted with the cultural riches of Lima, then enter the wilds of the Amazon with a two-night stay in Puerto Maldonado. Be awed by the grandeur of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, meet the Uros people of Lake Titicaca and tour the Witches Market regular tourists miss with your expert local leader.

Why we love this trip

  • While Quito's main cathedral is perhaps more famous, the baroque masterpiece of La Compania de Jesus rivals any church in the world for beauty and architecture

  • Take a tour of Quito with our specialist historian guide and discover places of the standard tourist trail

  • The active volcano of Cotopaxi is the highest in the world. Hike through Cotopaxi National Park towards the volcano's perfectly cone-shaped peak, looking out for wildlife along the way

  • Explore Cuenca from a different perspective while taking a tour with a true Ceuncano, you will discover parts of Cuenca not many other travellers have the opportunity to see

  • Experience the untouched world of the Amazon rainforest. Stroll along jungle trails on the lookout for monkeys, parrots, otters and caymans, and sleep in a nature lodge lit by candles and kerosene lamps

  • Peru is a world-class culinary destination. Visit an area unknown to tourists and try a variety of street food and authentic Peruvian desserts

  • Enjoy two included visits to Machu Picchu! One guided tour of the ruins and the second visit with free time to explore on your own

  • The floating reed islands of Uros on Lake Titicaca are a marvel of concept, construction and history. Take a boat tour on the world's highest navigable lake, then spend a couple of nights on a private Island overlooking Lake Titicaca. Watch the sun go down at the highest point of the island while enjoying a truly memorable picnic and drinks

  • Join a specialist historian guide on one of you included visits to an archaeological site around Cuzco who will provide interesting insight and knowledge about Peru's history and culture

Is this trip right for you?

  • Due to the high altitude of some of the places we visit on this trip, some travellers might experience altitude sickness. Please see the ‘Fitness’ section of the Trip Notes for more information about this condition.

  • Accommodation in the Amazon is likely to be more basic than what you might be accustomed to. Rooms are unpowered and the showers are cold water only. On the plus side, you'll have private en suites, romantic kerosene lamps and mosquito nets. Please remember that this is an extremely remote part of the world (which is what makes it so special).

  • The Amazon rainforest can be hot, humid and sticky. Please pack light cotton clothing and insect repellent.

Itinerary

Welcome to Quito, Ecuador! Your tour will begin with a welcome meeting at 6 pm. You can arrive at any time during the day as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Please check with hotel reception or look on the reception noticeboard for where and when the meeting will take place. If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader.

Quito is one of the most beautiful cities in South America, sitting at 2,850 metres above sea level, beneath the snow capped Volcan Pichincha. As we don't spend much time in Quito during the trip, why not arrive early and make the most of your time here? You'll be taken on a guided tour of Old Town and some of the famous sites tomorrow, but perhaps you'd like to explore Cotopaxi National Park, home to the country's famous volcano, or take the TelefériQo Cruz Loma, a gondola lift over the city.

Notes: Due to the high altitude of many of places we visit, including Quito, Lima and Cusco, some people can suffer altitude sickness regardless of age, gender or fitness. Please see the 'Fitness' section in the trip notes for detailed information.

Today after breakfast travel approximately 2.5 hours to Quilotoa, a lake-filled dormant volcano. Although this stunning lagoon looks like a crater-lake, it's technically a caldera formed by the collapse of a volcano.
Quilotoa is located at an altitidue of 3900m. Be prepared with warm clothes as it can get quite cold!
You'll have the option to hike down to the lake. The walk down hill takes approximately 40 minutes.
Please note that the the walk back up to the top can take up to 1.5 hours and is quite strenuous, mainly due to the sandy and steep path. Please speak to your leader if you're concerned about this as you may decide to stay at the top, go for a walk along the crater or simply relax and take in the stunning views.
After exploring Quilotoa, we drive back to the lodge (approximately 2.5 hours) and the remainder of your day is free.

Today is a free day in Peru's capital of Lima, once the most powerful and opulent city on the continent. You'll be doing plenty of sightseeing with your group tomorrow so make the most of your free day today by visiting sites that aren't on tomorrow's itinerary. Perhaps visit the chic suburb of Miraflores, stroll through Lover's Park and Central Park, or visit the Gold and Larco Museums. Lima also has an impressive museum called the National Museum of Anthropology, Archaeology and History of Peru, which is a must-see for history buffs.
Meals Included
  • Breakfast
At approximately 2pm this afternoon there will be a welcome briefing at the hotel with your leader – please double check with reception to confirm the time and place. Later in the day, embark on a walking tour of downtown Lima that takes in the city's historical centre. Flanked by streets of ornate mansions, palaces and churches, Plaza Mayor is the best place to start any exploration of Peru's illustrious capital. Take a walk through the old streets to get a feel for colonial life; on one side of the plaza is the Cathedral of Lima, which houses the remains of Lima's founder, Francisco Pizarro. Visit the nearby San Francisco Monastery, a series of catacombs containing some 70,000 human remains, before continuing into the Central Market, a sprawling series of stalls from which fruits, vegetables and even guinea pigs are hawked. This is a great place to try some local Peruvian fruits and street food. Finish up in Lima's main square, with the option to go for an included dinner in Downtown, or return to Miraflores.

Fly from Lima to Puerto Maldonado today (approximately 2 hours). Upon arrival, the lodge staff will take you to their office in town where you'll leave the majority of your luggage in safe storage. You'll continue travelling with a small pack with only the necessary items for your next two nights in the jungle. Shortly afterwards, leave civilisation behind and venture deep into the Amazon rainforest by motorised canoe, up river to your jungle lodge in the Madre de Dios region. Posada Amazonas is a rainforest lodge that's just a 45-minute boat ride from Puerto Maldonado. The lodge is owned by the indigenous Ese-Eja community of Infierno, and offers a 30-metre canopy tower that provides spectacular views of the vast expanses of forest, Tambopata River and endless opportunities to witness Amazonian wildlife. The lodge is eco-friendly and combines low-impact architecture with traditional native style. Rooms are simple, but comfortable with flush toilets (en suite) and showers (cold water only), and every room overlooks the tropical rainforest allowing you to enjoy this unique ecosystem at any time. Use your evening for relaxing and getting to know the local community.

Notes: Numerous kerosene lamps and candles provide lighting. Electricity and internet are only available in the common areas of the lodge.
Accommodation
  • Posada Amazonas lodge or similar (1 night)
Meals Included
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
This morning, head into the beating heart of the Amazon jungle with your local, multilingual guides, encountering magnificent fauna and flora in their natural habitat. Spot monkeys leaping through the trees, spy multi-coloured macaws gathered at a clay lick, see thousands of swirling butterflies, and keep an eye out for a local family of otters. The guides can also teach you about the medicinal properties and practical uses of the plants. After your hike finishes in the afternoon, it’s time to get back in the canoe and return to Puerto Maldonado. You're then free to sit back and relax in the comfort of your lodge.

Notes: A reasonable degree of fitness and patience is required for this trip. It's not necessarily the distance of the Amazon walks, but how muddy and slippery walking tracks can become during the rainy season. The lodge does provide 'gumboots' if required. Please also see the preparations section above for more information on appropriate clothing and footwear for this trip.

Today, travel back to Puerto Maldonado for the short flight to Cuzco. This flight will be unescorted, however you will be taken to the airport in Puerto Maldonado and met at the airport in Cuzco. Acclimatise to the city's altitude and wealth of sights with a couple of days set aside for exploring. This is a city steeped in traditional history and legend and is a perfect base for exploring the Inca world or taking part in a range of outdoor activities. Your leader will take you on a walking tour through the World Heritage-listed streets of the continent's oldest continuously inhabited city, where colonial buildings sit on Inca foundations and you can feel the energy and history of past generations. The tour will include a visit to the Coca Museum - where you can learn about the infamous plant that has been an essential part of life for centuries in the Andes - and the local San Pedro market. There's also the opportunity to visit a cathedral that was built atop an Incan palace and presides over the Plaza de Armas, the city's cultural heart. It houses an impressive collection of art, and boasts a silver-coloured Neoclassical altar.

Notes: This trip visits places that are at high altitude, and as a result some people can suffer from altitude sickness regardless of age or physical health. Please see the ‘Health’ section of the trip notes for more important information on this.

For art and history, the Contemporary Art Museum, Regional History Museum and Qosqo Native Art Museum can only be accessed with a Boleto Turistico (a ticket that covers archeological and cultural sites), which is included in the cost of your trip. This ticket also gives you access to the impressive stone fortress of Sacsayhuaman, where massive stone blocks that form the walls of this site give you an idea of how highly developed Inca engineering actually was. For lunch or mid-morning coffee and cake, head to Yanapay restaurant at 415 Ruinas St. This restaurant uses all its profits to support children in Cuzco through Aldea Yanapay and its social projects.
Accommodation

Travel by private bus for approximately two hours through the Sacred Valley, a fertile valley on the outskirts of Cuzco. Known to the Incas as Wilcamayo, this region has long provided the main source of food for the high Andes. Venture to a community in the valley to learn about the local lifestyle. If your visit coincides with market day (a Sunday, Tuesday or Thursday), you'll be able to spend your time browsing the stalls in search of hand-painted beads or warm ponchos. Continuing on, drive 20 minutes to Ollantaytambo, which was built over an ancient Inca town, the royal estate of Emperor Pachacuti. On your full day tour of the Sacred Valley, you'll see evidence of the Incas' urban planning and engineering skills in the ruins of ancient aqueducts, irrigation canals, dams on the Urubamba River, imposing sets of terraces and centres of worship dedicated to Pachamama (Mother Earth).
Accommodation
  • Samanapaq hotel or similar (1 night)

Today you will get up very early to witness the beauty of Machu Picchu in the early morning light. At 5.30 am, board a bus for the 30-minute drive up to Machu Picchu. Here you'll be joined by a guide who will take you through the ruins, telling you stories of the site's history and ancestral people. No matter how many photos you might have seen of Machu Picchu, clapping eyes on the site for the first time is always a breathtaking experience. After your guided tour (approximately 1.5-2 hours), you'll have plenty of free time to explore the intricate architecture of this famous Incan site yourself. The mortar-free designs of Machu Picchu's temples, palaces and living quarters are earthquake resistant, and the stones are so precisely cut that to this day not even a knife blade fits between them. Most archaeologists believe the site to be the 15th-century headquarters of ‘he who shook the earth’, Emperor Pachacuti. After taking advantage of the seemingly endless photo opportunities, it's time to return to Cuzco for a well-deserved shower and a pisco sour. The rest of today and tomorrow will be free for you to continue exploring Cuzco.

Notes: Due to Peregrine's internal safety policy, our leaders are specifically prohibited from recommending or assisting with booking trips to the mountaintop ruins of Wayna Picchu.

Travel by bus for approximately 6 hours to the tiny but unique town of Puno (more of less a full day's journey). This scheduled tourist service will take you on decent roads through spectacular mountain scenery, with the chance to stop off at several sites along the way, including adobe Inca ruins. During the journey you'll also make a short roadside stop at La Raya, which, at an altitude of 4,335 metres, is the highest point of your journey. Stop for lunch in the small town of Sicuani, then drive through the large town of Juliaca on your way to Puno, a colourful and lively place renowned for its traditional street dancing performed in celebration of Catholic festive days each February. You will then arrive in Puno: a melting pot of Aymara and Quechuan Indian culture situated on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Traditional Andean customs are strongly represented here and the town, which is famous for its traditional dances, is known as Peru's folklore capital. Many festivals are celebrated here, the best-known of which is the Virgen de la Candelaria. If you're lucky, your visit might coincide with one of the colourful evening parades, when the streets fill with costumed dancers and musicians.
Accommodation
  • Taypikala hotel or similar (1 night)
Meals Included
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
High up in the Peruvian mountains lie the mystical blue waters of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world. From the shoreline, the water stretches out almost as far as the eye can see, its expanses just waiting to be explored. Today, sail across Titicaca to the intriguing floating islands of the Uros. The islands, which were originally built by the Uros to isolate them from rival tribes, are constructed from many layers of totora reeds that grow in the shallows of the lake. As the reeds closest to the water begin to rot, more layers are added on top. These reeds are used for making everything on the islands, including the boats, which can last up to 12 months. Here you will set foot on the islands and learn about a unique traditional lifestyle that’s been around since pre-Inca times. The cruise will also take you to Taquile Island, where knitting is strictly the domain of men, while women focus on the spinning. This is the place to get your hands on some beautiful knitwear. In the evening, retire to your eco-lodge on the private island of Suasi.
Meals Included
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
This morning you will visit the cultural museum on the island. Here you will find maps, pictures of the Lake, and books about history of the lake and its communities. There are handicrafts and fabrics from the different groups that developed around the Lake, types of Andean grains like quinoa, and a chance to learn about the painting process of wool. Next you will navigate the island in Canadian canoes, passing through totora reeds and observing lake birds such as Titicaca flightless grebe, Andean geese, black skimmer, Peruvian booby and many species of gulls. On 106-hectare Suasi Island, you may see mammals such as all four species of camelids (llamas, alpacas, vicunas and guanacos) and viscachas. An easy late-afternoon walk (approximately 1-2 hours) will take you to the highest point of the island – the perfect place to witness an unforgettable sunset over Lake Titicaca's shimmering waters. Enjoy a tasty picnic here while you watch the sun go down.
Included Activities
  • Cultural Museum Visit - Suasi Island
  • Lake Titicaca Canoe Excursion - Suasi Island
  • Spectacular Sunset over Lake Titicaca, Picnic & Drinks - Suasi Island
Meals Included
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
Travel back to Puno this morning and make your way to Sillustani for the afternoon. Here you'll explore the pre-Inca tombs and funeral towers of the Aymara people, towering structures protruding from the rocky landscape. These ruined 'chullpas' were built centuries ago to house the remains of noble men. Afterwards, enjoy a free night in Puno to explore, eat dinner at a local restaurant or relax in the hotel.

Notes: Puno is the hometown of Kusimayo, a terrific local organisation that works towards improving the living condition of children and adults affected by poverty and malnutrition in this part of the world. Take a look at this short video for more information on this wonderful project: https://vimeo.com/154422813. Kusimayo is supported by the Intrepid Foundation which means you can donate to this project and your donation will be match dollar for dollar by the Intrepid Group.

Accommodation

Meals Included
  • Breakfast
Travel by minivan this morning to Desaguadero, where you'll cross the border into Bolivia (approximately 2.5 hours). First stop is the Peruvian migration office, where you'll be asked to leave the bus and proceed through Peruvian migration; then walk across a bridge to the Bolivian side, submit your passport at the Bolivian migration office and reboard the bus – which will continue to La Paz. About 30 minutes after crossing the border there's another stop where the army will again check your documents. Remember to reset your watch, as Bolivia is one to two hours ahead of Peru. On your way to La Paz, stop at Tiwanaku for a guided visit (approximately 45 minutes). The archaeological site of Tiwanaku was the base of a great civilisation that began around 500 BC before mysteriously 'disappearing' around 1200 AD. It is believed that the ceremonial complex dates back to the 8th century AD and was once at the centre of a powerful and self-sustaining empire based in the southern Central Andes. It is also where the Incas learned about building systems and agricultural practices. The sprawling ruins comprise temples, courtyards, terraced pyramids, monolithic stone statues and gateways. The most famous structure is the Puerta del Sol (Gateway of the Sun). From the ruins it's a two-hour drive to La Paz, where you'll spend the night. Due to La Paz's unique location in the middle of a huge volcanic crater, you'll be treated to spectacular views of the city on your approach. Breathe the 'thin' air, marvel at the vistas of buildings clinging to the canyonsides, and explore the lively streets and markets.
Accommodation

  • Breakfast
At at altitude of 3,600 metres, La Paz feels like the top of the world and vies with Tibet for the title of world's highest capital. Despite the city's abundance of colonial architecture, La Paz's indigenous roots run deep and the atmosphere in the market-filled streets is both modern and traditional. Meet your leader and embark on a city tour, beginning with a ride on the world’s highest 'urban' cable car from La Paz to its twin city, El Alto. Here you'll visit an array of craft markets selling goods made from leather, alpaca wool and other traditional materials before continuing into the Mercado de Hechiceria or Witches' Market. Browse stalls stacked high with all manner of strange herbal potions and remedies; this witches market is rarely seen by tourists and a much more authentic version than the smaller one in La Paz. Just outside the market is a street where dozens of doctors or shamans will, for a price, tell of your future health, love, or career. Reboard the cable car to the south of the city and take a walking tour of the extraordinary landscape of Moon Valley. This isn’t a valley, but a maze of canyons and colossal clay spires. Caused by erosion, these rugged oddities make for staggering views. Stop at Mirador Killi Killi for one of La Paz’s most impressive viewing points, then, back at ground level, pay a visit to the National Museum of Ethnography. After lunch, the rest of the day is free. When the sun sets and the temperature drops, join the locals seeking warmth in a bar or restaurant. Please speak to your tour leader for some suggestions of restaurants or places to eat.

Notes: Please be aware that the order of your tour may change slightly according to weather, however you will still visit everything mentioned in the itinerary.
