Peru is a country in South America that’s home to a section of Amazon rainforest and Machu Picchu, an ancient Incan city high in the Andes mountains. The region around Machu Picchu, including the Sacred Valley, Inca Trail and colonial city of Cusco, is rich in archaeological sites. On Peru’s arid Pacific coast is Lima, the capital, with a preserved colonial center and important collections of pre-Columbian art. There are over 3,000 different varieties of Potato grown in Peru. Spanish is not the only language spoken in Peru. Machu Picchu is of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The Largest Flying Bird on Earth can be found in Peru, The Giant Andean Condor.
INCA HEARTLAND & BOLIVIA DISCOVERY
31 days, Lima to La Paz
On this 31-day tour of Peru and Bolivia, explore a side of South America that many visit, but few really get to know. Begin with Peru’s desert coast, where the Nazca lines have mystified travellers for eons. Then trek the Andean highlands, awash in rich Incan culture (both past and present), before experiencing the iconic Machu Picchu, where we are the Inca Trail’s largest operator. Reach even greater heights in Bolivia, where the capital of La Paz is one of the highest cities in the world. South of here, the Salar de Uyuni welcome travellers eager to explore one the planet’s starkest, and most mesmorizing, geological formations. On this tour, feel closer to the two countries’ history, nature, and culture in a way that few ever get to experience.
