All travel junkies dream of going off the radar. Of discovering some far-flung location that is far from the eyes of tourists yet totally awesome at the same time. Peru’s Rainbow Mountain is one of these places. Hiking its colourful heights is nothing short of spectacular, it can render you breathless and dizzy at times, but all is forgotten when you reach its stripy summit bursting with colour and awe-inspiring beauty. Hiking this secret mountain of the Andes is just one part of this epic group tour full of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. You’ll trek through the lush Amazonia jungle, discover the lost city of Machu Picchu and mountain bike through the highlands of the Sacred Valley. It’s not a trip for the fainthearted, but boy is it a trip for determined adventure-seekers who want the holiday of a lifetime.

Itinerary

Day 1: Lively Lima and its ancient bottom

Bienvenidos! Welcome to Peru. Your adventure begins with a transfer from the airport to the hotel, then it’s time to ditch the bags and get ready to explore Lima’s lively blend of cultures*. You’ll spend the afternoon discovering the city’s rich history (the city really is built on top of an ancient palace and temples), and our bilingual guides will take you to three of the most traditional bars and taverns in downtown Lima, Pisco cocktails and all. So strap yourself in and prepare for an unforgettable Latin American adventure!

*Don’t worry if your flight arrives late, we’ll pick you up from the airport whatever the time is!

Day 2: History and haunted bars in Lima

Today kicks off in Lima’s grand main square, the Plaza de Armas, where you’ll find the decadent Presidential Palace and the beautiful cathedral. The fun continues to the upmarket district of San Isidro where you can admire the Huaca Huallamarca, a pre-Incan pyramid which looks even more striking against the contrasting modern buildings. Then enjoy a wander through the swanky neighbourhood of Miraflores, and explore Parque del Amor (Love’s Park) with stunning views across the Pacific Ocean. Afterwards you’ll head to the fancy restaurant of Lima 27 where you’ll watch the chef demonstrate how to prepare Peru’s main dishes. It’s then time to show off your culinary prowess and cook a Peruvian dish yourself, before tucking into a typical Peruvian lunch. As the evening descends, the city changes gear and the nightlife kicks into action. There’s two bars worth checking out—an old, reputedly haunted, German lounge known for its live piano music, and a 1920s bar where you’ll find some pretty potent Pisco sours.

Day 3: Arrive in Amazonia for jungle treks and boat rides

Your Amazonian adventure begins with a flight from Lima to Puerto Maldonado. After meeting your guide and getting your official waterway permits, you’ll step aboard a typical Amazonian boat and cruise along the Madre de Dios River to your jungle lodge. After freshening up, you’ll then trek through the Amazon with a steamy variety of tropical trees, medicinal plants and fluttering butterflies. Return to the lodge to relax in your exotic surroundings, before an exciting night time boat ride listening to the calling wildlife and gazing up at the starlit sky. A delicious dinner is then waiting for you back at the lodge, this is jungle life at its finest!
