Project Description

Peru

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.

Inland & Amazon

14 days Quito to Quito
It’s quite poetic that Ecuador is the centre of this big, beautiful planet of ours. In so few kilometres, the peaks of the Andes, the jungles of the Amazon, and historical cities all have some square footage here and with this 14-day journey you can see some of it all. Learn about the traditional Quichua culture in the Amazon, find treasures at a local handicraft market, and later slip into a world of “ahh” in a mountain hot spring.
