Day 1 - Lima
Welcome to Lima, Peru. Transfer to your hotel and explore your neighborhood; or relax and prepare for the adventure of a lifetime.
Day 2 - Lima
The morning meeting welcomes you and your fellow travelers and it is time to decide how you'd like to explore Lima: by foot or by bike. The walking tour takes you through the old streets of this city, built on top of an existing palace and temples; the bike tour has you cycling down from the top of Morro Solar — with stunning views of shimmering Lima Bay.
Day 3 - Lima to Tambopata National Reserve
Enter the Amazon Jungle today after a short flight to Puerto Maldonado, then board a boat along the Madre de Dios River to Inkaterra Hacienda. After lunch, walk through Concepcion Trails — indoor nature trails — where you will learn about the rainforest. At dusk, navigate by motorized canoe for a Twilight River excursion.
Day 4 - Tambopata National Reserve
Venture further into the Amazon with a trek into Tambopata National Reserve — toward Lake Sandoval. Navigate by dugout canoe across mirror-like Oxbow Lake, which is home to abundant wildlife including otters, macaw and red howler monkeys. The Canopy and Anaconda Walk is your passage up towers and across hanging bridges. Breathtaking vistas are dotted with white-throated toucans, squirrel monkeys and the three-toed sloth. A Rainforest by Night excursion showcases another side of the jungle.
Day 5 - Inkaterra Hacienda to Cuzco
We journey to Cuzco today — the former capital of the Incan Empire. Take time to acclimate to the city's 11,150 foot altitude. Relax or enjoy a light stroll around the continent's oldest continuously inhabited city.
Day 6 - Cuzco
A walking tour showcases the charm and history of Cuzco. This afternoon is free, so you can explore your way. Learn about Peruvian culture with a cooking class; or take a bike tour out to the impressive Sacsayhuamán fortress, the Tambomachay temple or more Inca sites.
Day 7 - Cuzco, Ollantaytambo, Aguas Calientes
In the Sacred Valley, visit a local community and learn about life in the Andes. Practice speaking Quechua while you enjoy a delicious lunch cooked by the locals. Then visit the Ollantaytambo ruins before your train ride to Aguas Calientes — the town below Machu Picchu. Relax as you prepare for tomorrow's adventure.
Day 8 - Aguas Calientes, Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, Cuzco
Traverse the zigzagging road as you make your way toward the sacred Lost City of the Incas — Machu Picchu. An insider guide brings the impressive ancient ruins — and Incan Empire's masterpiece — to life. Explore this deeply stirring site, which some say is the spiritual vortex of the world. Many feel a palpable energy described as "tranquil." The scenic train from Aguas Calientes takes you to Ollantaytambo before a transfer to your boutique hotel in Cuzco.
Day 9 - Cuzco
An unscripted day in Cuzco is all yours. Later, a sunset stand-up paddleboard excursion at Piuray Lake is followed by a yoga session. Your amazing Peruvian adventure closes with a delicious dinner and stargazing under the Andean night sky.
Day 10 - Cuzco
Depart for home today.
