Detailed Description

There is no better way to experience a country's natural beauty than to venture beyond the city limits. On this adventurous, two-week expedition, you will travel by plane, train, boat, and bus to uncover a multitude of breathtaking panoramas. Follow in the footsteps of your expert guide through the depths of the rainforest, peaks of the Andes, and along each scenic winding bend in between. Meanwhile, delve into the captivating history and culture of this beloved country that has been woven into the very fabric of Andean tradition to this day.

You will start your journey in the bustling capital of Lima, which is known for its opulence, intellect, and artistic innovation. Tour the city center to admire the unique blend of ornate Spanish architecture and robust Inca stonework. Then, travel south to the desert oasis of Huacachina where you will hold on tight as you plummet down undulating sand dunes that converge at a serene lagoon basin. For the next three days, you and your guide will trek through the secret labyrinthine paths of the Amazonian Jungle where you will uncover indigenous bird and mammal species and spend the evenings in your luxurious outdoor lodge accommodations.

In the days to come, return to Cusco, which is the former birthplace of the Inca Empire. Amble along the cobblestoned streets that were present during the Spanish Conquest of the 16th Century. The careful craftsmanship and architectural expertise at sites like the sun temple of Qorikancha, which is the military fortress of Saqsaywaman, and the lavish baths at Tambomachay are a testament to a civilization's acute engineering capabilities. Finally, depart Cusco as you set course on a magnificent three-day hike along the scenic Inca Trail. At last, you will reach the esteemed ruins of Machu Picchu and spend the remainder of your trip exploring the grounds and ruminating in the splendor of the majestic masterpieces.
