Start in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed historic centre to admire the colonial magnificence. Explore the 17th century San Francisco Monastery.
Day 4: Urubamba Valley Fly to Cusco and transfer to the Sacred Valley. Begin in Pisac to see the ruins and explore the colourful market. Continue to Ollantaytambo where you will meet an Inca community. Here you will have the opportunity to interact with the town’s inhabitants, as well as seeing the beautifully-preserved Inca houses and ancient Inca fortress.
Day 5: Huilloc Community Spend the day in the remote village of Huilloc, approximately 40 minutes transfer from your hotel, where you’ll catch a glimpse of the authentic culture of the valley’s Quechua communities. You’ll be able to interact with the villagers, share lunch with them and witness their day to day life.
Day 6: Train to Machu Picchu Leaving the Sacred Valley today, board the panoramic Vistadome train for your journey to Aguas Calientes, gateway to the world-famous Macchu Pichu. Transfer into a bus for your journey to the ruins.
Day 7: Machu Picchu Enjoy the morning at leisure or choose one of these optional tours: take the challenging hike up to Huayna Picchu, a viewpoint overlooking Machu Picchu; Aguas Calientes’ thermal baths for a relaxing soak; or a second entrance to Machu Picchu for further explorations – perhaps even venturing up to the Intipunku or Sun Gate. This afternoon, return to Aguas Calientes and take the train to Cusco.
Day 8: Discover Cusco
Today’s touring will include visits to the Plaza de Armas, once the heart of the Incan capital of Huacaypata; and Coricancha, the temple of the sun. Head just out of town to the ruins of Sacsayhuaman and Puka Pukara, the ‘Red Fortress’.
Day 9; Train to Puno Today take a train from Cusco to Puno. Journey through amazing Andean landscapes to Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca, passing through the spectacular Peruvian highlands. The train has 4 dining cars, a bar car and an observation car. Along the way you will enjoy a gourmet lunch prepared with exquisite Andean ingredients and there will be music and dance shows on board.
Day 10: Lake Titicaca Journey by boat across Lake Titicaca to the floating islands of Uros, which are constructed entirely from reeds. Spend some time exploring and meeting the local Uros people before continuing to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Taquile. Once a stronghold of the Inca, you’ll find wonderful textiles here. After your tour of the island, head back to Puno.
Day 11: Colca Canyon Today travel to Colca, approximately a 5 to 6 hour drive, passing through Lagunillas and Tocra along the way. Keep your eyes peeled for flamingos, Andean ducks and llamas. Reach Pata Pampa at 4,820 metres altitude, where you can admire the volcanoes Ampato, Sabancaya, Hualca-Hualca and Mismi (the source of the Amazon River), as well as views of the Cordillera de Chila. Once in Chivay, enjoy the view of the terraces of the Colca Valley before time to bathe in the natural hot springs.
Day 12: Travel to Arequipa After an early breakfast, depart Colca and travel to Arequipa. En route, stop at Condor Cross for a picturesque view of the canyon, and hopefully a few sightings of the native condors gliding on the thermals.
