Detailed Description

Get ready to be awestruck on this 12-day tour through the Andes and Amazon, meant for hikers, boaters, mountaineers, ornithologists, historians, ecotourists, or those who have ever had a desire to see magnificent mountains and breathtaking rainforest. Your time in Peru will take you along the Sacred Valley of the Andes, hiking through the splendored countryside and along the trails of history with Inca ruins climbing the foothills, stretching all the way to Machu Picchu, the treasure at the end the journey. Spanish colonial grandeur decorates Cusco, and the awesome depths of the rainforest are filled with majestic birds and unique wildlife.

This spectacular journey begins with your arrival in Lima. The eclectic range of the neighborhoods have risen from the colonial past and merged with the modern city. Arrive in the heights of Cusco and venture into the Andes where you will take your first step along the Inca Trail and into the sensational greenery of the Sacred Valley. With each step you will walk along the path of the Inca, along the valley floor, past the ruins of Llulluchapampa, over the sky pass of Warmiwanusqa at 13,000 feet above sea level. You will watch as the mountains open up and spotlight the amazing citadel of Machu Picchu. After you explore the city you will return to Cusco and venture around the surrounding ruins and wonderful lingering Spanish Architecture.

Your exploration continues with your descent into the Amazon. Cruise up-stream from the bustling city of Puerto Maldonado, where you can see men pan for gold in the river basin, and arrive at the Refugio Amazonas. Venture into the canopy and experience the Macaw Clay Lick, where the brilliant hues of the birds swirl along the clay cliff and beaks nibble at the soil. Experience the rainforest through the eyes of a researcher spending time in the Tambopata Research Center while howler monkeys hoot and holler in the trees. Paddle along the Condenado Lake and watch the caiman bathe on the beachside. As you leave the Amazon you will watch the trees recede beneath you and know how unique your journey has been. You scaled mountains, watched the stars hover just out of reach, witnessed the colorful world of macaws, and discovered just how amazing Peru can be.
