Walking Tour In Peru
Heart of the Inca Empire
Flying up to Juliaca, we skirt the shores of Lake Titicaca (3856m), the highest navigable body of water on earth. From Puno we board a boat to visit the Uros Indians who live on floating reed islands and the more remote community on Taquile island. Then we travel across the altiplano by bus to the Inca capital, Cusco, where there's time to explore the huge city-fortress of Sacsayhuaman and for a day's whitewater rafting.
The High Route to Machu Picchu
We commence this extended route past Salkantay (6271m), one of the world's most beautiful mountains, to eventually join the paved Inca trail leading to Machu Picchu. At Sayllapata we expect to see humming birds, flowering shrubs and a few remote farms. As we climb up to the first high pass (5000m) we'll trek beneath the southern flank of the mighty Salkantay peak and its awe inspiring glaciers. We join the Classic Inca Trail and descend the staircase to the Gate of the Sun to finally feast our eyes on Machu Picchu.
Explore the amazon with a 3-night extension...
It is possible to extend your stay in Peru with a 3-night sojourn in a jungle lodge deep in Amazonia. Flying to Puerto Maldonado, you can explore the Amazon jungle by dugout canoe and also on foot for close-up views of exotic tropical flora. There's plenty of time to relax and soak up the atmosphere.
