Peru in Depth

Boasting the wild forests of the Amazon, the volcanoes and canyons of the arid south and the lush green valleys of the Andean cloud forest, Peru is a stupendously diverse country. Over the course of this three-week itinerary, you will discover all the historical highlights of this charming nation and soak up the breath-taking vistas of the Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca and the Amazon basin.

Beginning with a sophisticated stay in Lima’s fashionable Miraflores district, travel south for a night in the city of Arequipa and an exploration of the Colca Canyon – one of the world’s deepest and most dramatic ravines where giant condors fly. You will then stop at Lake Titicaca before exploring the wonders of the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu with a luxury, lodge-to-lodge trekking programme. To conclude your trip, you will spend three nights in the Peruvian Amazon on an exclusive river cruise experiencing the magic of this vast, untouched wilderness and its fascinating fauna.

By staying in sustainable mountain lodges during your trek to Macchu Picchu you are directly supporting the local communities in this region - 80% of lodge staff are local and many of them are direct descendants of the Incas. Mountain Lodges of Peru also have a joint venture with the Huachuasi. This means the local people are shareholders and directly involved in the tourism industry.
