All travel junkies dream of going off -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 beauty. Climbing this remote Andean peak is just one part of an epic adventure that positively brims with once-in-a-lifetime experiences. When you’re not making Pisco Sours in Lima or immersing yourself in the Inca heritage of Cuzco, get ready to boat through the lush Amazonia jungle by night, discover the Lost City of Machu Picchu and mountain bike the mighty highlands of the Sacred Valley. Learn why Lima is a leading food capital of the world with a cooking session led by the chefs at one of the capital’s most lauded restaurants. Marvel at Inca ruins and swing through the jungle canopy. Hike your heart out before chilling in gorgeous mountain lodges, surrounded by emerald slopes and cloud forest. Camp out beneath the stars and savour the best of home-cooked Peruvian cuisine. Our getaway to this magical land is not for the fainthearted, but boy, does it deliver the wow factor. Determined adventure-seekers in search of the holiday of a lifetime: this has your name on.

Extend this adventure by heading to the shimmering salt flats of Bolivia

We also run an alternative Peru adventure with a 15km trek to Machu Picchu instead of Rainbow Mountain

Itinerary

Day 1: Pisco Sours all round

Touch down in lively Lima and toast your fellow Flashpackers as you mosey around the bars of Barranco, one of the capital’s hippest domains. Learn how to make potent Pisco Sours and raise a cheer to the adventure ahead

 

Bienvenidos! Welcome to Peru. Arrive by 3pm where 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*. Meet your fellow Flashpackers and guide, before an evening of bar-hopping in the vibrant Bohemian neighbourhood of Barranco. Dive head-first into the local party culture by learning how to make your own Pisco Sours, frothy egg white topping and all. After all, it’s only polite to salute the national drink of Peru… Strap yourselves 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: Foodie delights and ancient sights

Take a guided walk around the ancient sights of Lima, before learning how to conjure up authentic Peruvian cuisine at one of the city’s most innovative restaurants. Watch the chefs work their flair in the food capital of South America and try out your own skills. Tuck into a hearty lunch and later on, grab another taste of Lima’s eclectic bar scene

 

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 a fancy restaurant 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: The call of the jungle

Fly to the Amazon, and arrive by boat at your beautiful lodge by the Madre de Dios river. Get right to the beating heart of this tropical wonderland with an immersive jungle trek. Then, as evening draws in, hop aboard a thrilling night-time boat ride down the river, with the dark shadows of the forest and the call of the wild all around

 

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. Freshen up, and then trek through the Amazon amid a steamy variety of towering tropical trees, medicinal plants and exotic fluttering butterflies. Return to the lodge to relax in your wilderness surroundings, before an exciting night-time boat ride listening to the calling wildlife and gazing up at the starlit sky. A delicious dinner awaits you back at the lodge. This is jungle life at its finest!

Important notes

Fly into: Jorge Chávez International Airport, Lima

Fly out of: Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport, Cuzco

Trekking Rainbow Mountain is a difficult trek due to the high altitude, anyone who books on this adventure must speak to us so that they know what they are signing themselves up for.

At certain times of the year Rainbow mountain is not accessible as it is too cold, so during these months we run a slightly different itinerary which can be seen by clicking on the link at the top of the page. For these adventures, we will take the 15km trek up to the Sun gate at Machu Picchu and it is also a day shorter. If you have any questions about this or would like the Flash Pack team to send you some more details of the itinerary please just say. 

For all Peru trips the adventure starts in Lima and ends in Cuzco. Try and get flights that arrive before 4:30pm, however, we will pick you up no matter what time you arrive. For your flight home you can leave anytime from Cuzco on the last day. As it is such an active adventure we do recommend spending an extra night in the charming city of Cuzco if you have time.

Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change. These changes can happen with little notice due to availability, poor weather, seasonal changes, or other circumstances beyond our control. From time to time we may also make changes to your itinerary to try out new ideas and keep things fresh.
