We don’t need to sell Peru as a travel destination. Its spectacular sights and bucket list reputation speaks for itself. We’d probably mention the dazzling landscape of the Sacred Valley or the lush beauty of the Amazonian jungle, maybe even the mouth-watering cuisine or the charming warmth of local people. But all you need to know is that this epic adventure covers this diverse country in 11 days of pure Peruvian escapism. Be it hiking 15km through amazing Inca scenery, mountain biking past ancient ruins or discovering the lost city of Machu Picchu, prepare for a thrilling adventure of once in a lifetime experiences. Alpaca selfies and pisco sours all round.

Day 2: Palaces, parks & potent pisco

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.

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!

Important notes

Fly into: Jorge Chávez International Airport, Lima

Fly out of: Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport, Cuzco

For this trip you will need to fly into Lima on day 1 of the trip. We will pick you up no matter what time you arrive on this day but do try and get into Lima before 4pm if you can. The trip ends in Cuzco so you will need to fly home from here.

WE DO NOT CLIMB RAINBOW MOUNTAIN on this adventure. However, we still do a tough 15km trek up to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu.

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.
