Lima
City
When you touch down in Lima, you'll be met and transferred to The Lot Boutique Hotel to relax after your journey. The next day you'll make the most of Lima with a tour of the 18th-century Real Felipe Fortress and the traditional La Punta District. Admire the wooden colonial mansions and oceanside promenade before stopping for lunch by the sea.

The afternoon will be spent exploring Lima by bike. You'll start at the iconic La Marina Lighthouse and visit Love Park where you'll see The Kiss sculpture before continuing to the Barranco District passing through the Larcomar Mall along the way. Soak up the artistic atmosphere of the Barranco District, home to artists, authors, and musicians. You'll visit the Puente de Los Suspiros, known as the Bridge of Sighs, before finishing your tour with a snack and excellent views of the Pacific Ocean.

3
Huancayo
General Tour
Leave Lima behind and hop aboard a train to Huancayo. This 14-hour journey is the second highest in the world and the highest in Latin America. En route to Huancayo, you'll pass the Mantaro Valley and the Cordillera de Los Andes, ascending to the highest point of the journey at 4,781m above sea level. At Huancayo you'll be met and transferred to the Hotel Presidente Huancayo.

4
Huancavelica
General Tour
It's time for another unforgettable train journey, this time a five-hour ride to Huancavelica. A diverse Peruvian landscape of canyons, ravines, tunnels, bridges, jungle, and highlands will rush past your window. At each stop, vendors board the train with snacks of corn, cheesy potatoes, and local drinks. In the early afternoon, you'll arrive in Huancavelica and enjoy a tour of the city to visit temples, hot springs, and the abandoned Santa Barbara mining complex before settling into the Hotel Presidente Huancavelica.

5-6
Ayacucho
General Tour
Today you'll travel by road to Ayacucho. The seven-hour journey will be broken up with stops at Choclococha and Azulcocha. Don’t forget to look out for llamas along the way! Check in to the Hotel Sevilla Ayacucho and the next day treat yourself to a well-earned breather and spend your time as you please. Either explore Ayacucho by yourself or if you'd prefer, hop on one of the optional tours. You may choose to tour the Wari Archaeological Complex, the Pampa de Ayacucho and the artisanal village of Quinua on an historical tour; or take a full day optional trip to Huancaraylla - a hidden wonder in the corner of Ayacucho. This river is made up of small turquoise and emerald green pools, where you can spend the day exploring and have lunch with a local family.

 

7
Andahuaylas
General Tour
It's time to hit the road again, this time with a six-hour drive along a lesser-traveled route. Watch the scenery change as you trundle by and pampas grasses are swapped for wide-open valleys. Your journey will be broken up with a visit to an artisanal sugar cane distillery for a delicious tasting before arriving at La Mansion Casa Hotel in Andahuaylas.

 

8
Capuliyoc

Today it's on to Capuliyoc, with a visit to Pacucha Lake and the ruins of Sondor along the way. On arrival, you'll pitch up and spend your first night under canvas.

9
Playa Rosalina
Activity and Adventure 
Today is the first day of your five-day hike. This epic trek will send you off the beaten track and into the heart of the Peruvian Andes. You'll kick off with a walk along Capuliyoc, with views of the Apurimac Canyon and the trail that lies ahead. A few hours later it's time for vital sustenance, before hiking down to the rushing waters of the Apurimac until you reach Playa Rosalina which is where you'll spend the night next to the shores of the river.

Choquequirao
Activity and Adventure
After breakfast, you'll cross a suspension bridge and then it's time for an uphill walk to Marampata, where you'll enjoy a lunch in a meadow. The afternoon hike ascends a steep trail as you start to appreciate the Apurimac Canyon from above. The trail becomes more forgiving as you approach the hanging valley where the site of Choquequirao is found. Set up camp near the site - enjoy the one off experience of camping under the stars right next to an ancient Incan relic!

11
Santa Rosa Baja
Activity and Adventure   
Today has an exceptionally beautiful hike in store as you'll have time to explore Choquequirao, a fascinating ruin often described as a mini Machu Picchu. But thanks to the challenging hike required to get here, it is much quieter than its famous counterpart. You'll have plenty of time to explore the ruins including a delicious lunch nearby. Keep a lookout for condors soaring over the deep canyon.

12
Coca Masana
Activity and Adventure
Today you will start your descent down the Apurimac Valley. It's a steep and slow journey, but along the way, you'll be treated to some striking views out across the river valley. From here it's up to Chiquiska for some rest and a spot of lunch, before continuing to the small village of Coca Masana, with its typical Andean houses and rural atmosphere.

 

13-14
Cuzco
Activity and Adventure
Wake up early for breakfast – today is the last day of the hike. It’s back to Capuliyoc for its excellent lookout point and fine weather. Once you reach the area and have had a chance to explore, you'll board a bus back to Cuzco and El Mercado hotel where your feet will enjoy a well-earned rest.

Spend the next morning on a half day walking tour of the city's main sites. Visit the San Cristobal viewpoint and go back in time at the Sacsayhuaman Archaeological Site and the Qenqo Amphitheatre.

15
Sacred Valley
General Tour  
It's an exciting day today as you're off to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, staying at Casa Andina Premium Valle Sagrado. The tour starts at Chinchero, a traditional Andean village with bags of character and historic buildings. Visit the colonial church and marvel at its extensive collection of paintings from the Cuzco School of Art. From here it's on to the Maras Salt pans where you'll get to see an expanse of ancient salt terraces gleaming in the sun.

Continue to the ancient Moray Terrace, which experts think may have been a gigantic agricultural laboratory, an astronomical observatory or a place of worship – or maybe all three! Your trip finishes up at the Inca fortress and citadel of Ollantaytambo. Built before the Spaniards arrived, it was created to guard the entrance to this part of the valley and protect it from the tribes of the jungle lowlands.

Machu Picchu
Activity and Adventure 
From Ollantaytambo, you'll hop aboard a train to Chachabamba, from where you'll start your hike on the Inca Trail toward Machu Picchu.

17-19
Cuzco
Activity and Adventure
It's time to board a bus back to Machu Picchu, the best-known archaeological site on the continent. Part of the ancient city's appeal is that despite being discovered over a hundred years ago, archaeologists remain mystified about its purpose. The ancient network of palaces, plazas, and homes may have been built as a military center, rulers retreat or a ceremonial site.

Your tour guide will talk you through the history and various uses of the temples and palaces. The ruins are the size of a village, so you'll have plenty of time to explore and soak up the ancient atmosphere. After your morning at Machu Picchu, you'll enjoy lunch before heading to Aguas Calientes where you will have time to explore before driving to Cuzco and El Mercado Hotel.

The remainder of your time in Cuzco is yours to spend as you please, but if you like, you can join an optional tour. Choose from a full day Three Mountains Trek, a half-day of cultural trekking, or a half-day at Condor Canyon.
