Foreign Travel Advice

If you want to see the best of Peru in a short time frame, this itinerary takes in all the highlights between Lima and Cuzco and the Inca Trails to the ruins of Machu Picchu. This includes the Ballestas Islands, the Huacachina Desert, the Nazca Lines, the Colca Canyon, Arequipa and, of course, Cuzco itself. We also get you off the beaten track by trekking along on our exhilarating Wild Andes Trail through the remote Andes above the Urubamba Valley. We cap off your trek with a visit to the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. You will see few people on this unique alternative to the Classic Inca trail, which is your other option if you prefer. We will also get you into the local community and have a great Andean homestay with our Quechuan Indian hosts to learn about their culture.

Boat trip to the Ballestas islands to view wildlife

Great for lovers of culture and history along with those wanting a trekking challenge (Inca Trails). Plenty of insight into local life and stunning drives across remote Andean scenery. A good mix of camping, with small comfortable hotels and the chance to explore deserts, mountains and wildlife.

Trekking Options:

Option 1 - Trek the Classic Inca Trail up the Royal Inca Road.

Option 2 - Hike unspoilt Inca Trails in remote stunning Andes scenery away from tourist treks on our exclusive Wild Andes trail.

Option 3 - Take a Sacred Valley Tour, visit Ollantaytambo and take the train to Machu Picchu without trekking.

PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST ADVISE AT TIME OF BOOKING IF YOU WISH TO BOOK THE CLASSIC INCA TRAIL OR THE NON TREKKING OPTION, OTHERWISE YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE PUT ON OUR WILD ANDES TREK.

Day 1 - Cuzco (27th May 2020)

Border information: if you are joining in Cuzco, you will most likely enter Peru at Cuzco Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (IATA code: CUZ).

There will be an important group meeting at 10:00am at the joining hotel - please look out at the hotel reception for a note from your leader with more details about this important meeting. There will be a further meeting this evening for our Wild Andes and Classic Inca Trails, where we will have a full detailed briefing from our local trekking guides about the next few days!

The rest of today will be free to explore the wonderful city of Cuzco, discover its many historical gems, or to take part in number of optional activities near the city.

A note on altitude: if you are joining in Cuzco, we strongly recommend arriving at least 24 hours before the trip begins to allow additional time to acclimatise.
