Detailed Description

Peru vacations are full of history, and this 7-day excursion is meant for desert dwellers, mountain men, beach bodies, nature lovers, cultural enthusiasts, and myth seekers. Venture to the unexplained and impressive Nazca Lines that illustrate the Wonders of the World and onto desert plains. Watch playful sea lions bask in the sun. See remnants of cultures that predate the Inca and glisten beneath museum light. Walk along the famous steps of Machu Picchu and be swept away by the majesty of the hilltop city. This is Peru, where the modern world mixes with the collective decadent past and gives you the opportunity to submerse yourself in history.

Begin your indulgent historical wandering with your arrival in Lima. The capital city spreads along the expanse of flatlands until reaching foothills and the sea. The Museo de la Nacíon contains relics of Peruvian civilizations throughout history, including the Chavín stone carvings that glow beneath the museum lights. Travel into the desert and ascend into the sky. Spread across the arid earth lays a number of perfectly symmetrical drawings that range in size, carved deep enough into the ground to be visible from the air, and large enough to not be seen at eyelevel. Cruise into the Paracas Nature Reserve, out into the sapphire water of the Pacific to the Ballestas Islands. Blue footed boobies and pelicans glide through the air while Humboldt penguins soar through the water.

Arrive in Cusco where the Inca capital is filled with beautiful contradictions, from the opulent architecture and fabulous modernity, to the colorful connection to history, within its people and foundation. Journey into the Sacred Valley and board a stunning train that will take you to Machu Picchu, bringing you along the valley floor, through dense jungle, and onto the foothills of the Lost City. Scale the stone stairs of the hillside and watch as the walls open up and Machu Picchu stands grandly before you, climbing up and atop the mountain. Return to Cusco with the history of the country still shining in your eyes before you depart for home. The country’s history is riddled with beauty and pain, connection and loss, but you will witness the majesty and the wonders wrapped decadently in the proud culture of Peru.
