This tour of Peru and Bolivia will take you back to a time when the region was ruled by ancient civilizations. Travel from La Paz, the cultural capital of Bolivia, through the Andes and down to the coast to arrive in Lima, the capital of Peru. From the Nazca people and the Incas, through to the period of Spanish conquest, this is a land rich in history and culture.

From an abundant Peruvian coastline to desert dunes rich in archeological treasures, from lush green cloud forests to beautiful colonial cities, from majestic Inca ruins to the remote islands of Lake Titicaca we will explore a truly remarkable region. Abounding in natural beauty and alive with a vibrant and colorful culture this journey through Peru and Bolivia will be an exhilarating and unforgettable experience.

Tour Itinerary:

Days 1–5: Leaving from the cultural city of La Paz we head north across the border into Peru to arrive on the shores of Lake Titicaca. We will visit floating reed islands and Taquile Island, famous for its traditional handicrafts and isolated way of life and have a chance to experience the local culture with an overnight Island home stay. Driving across the Andean plains, we arrive in Cusco, the archaeological capital of the Americas, which will be our base to explore the Inca culture and the famous ruins of Machu Picchu.

Days 6–11: After exploring Cusco we head off into the Sacred Valley of the Incas to visit the colonial village of Pisac, famous for its lively market, and the massive fortress of Ollantaytambo. Following the footsteps of the ancient Incas we will walk the Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu. You will be amazed and intrigued to learn all there is to know about this mysterious race from your expert guide.

Days 12–15: Returning from Machu Picchu we have some time to relax again in Cusco before traveling through the Peruvian high country to Colca Canyon, arguably the world's deepest canyon, and home to numerous Andean Condors. We will take an early morning trip to view Condors circling on the thermals rising up from the canyon floor and enjoy some time hiking in the area.

Days 16–19: We head down now to Arequipa, a beautiful city surrounded by spectacular mountains. Explore the Monastery of Santa Catalina and visit "Juanita" – the Ice Princess, a frozen Inca sacrifice recently discovered at the summit of Mount Ampato. Descending down to the coast of Peru we stop at the ancient Inca port of Puerto Inca.

Days 20–23: A short drive inland will bring us to Nazca, named after the ancient culture that inhabited the area in around 200 AD. We will take a flight over the mysterious Nazca Lines that, to this day, remain unexplained by scientists and archaeologists alike and visit the mummies at the Chauchilla Cemetery. We visit Huacachina, a tiny desert oasis nestled amongst huge sand dunes before arriving at the Paracas Marine reserve, the most important wildlife sanctuary on the Peruvian coast. This is our last stop before arriving into the colonial city of Lima and the end of our tour.
