Trailblazer Peru

9 days from £3,808pp

Peru

  • Machu Picchu

Overview & Highlights

Explore two entirely contrasting landscapes of Peru in depth, from the wildlife-rich Amazon rainforest to the mysterious ruins of the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, on this covid-conscious holiday.

  • Sacred Valley: choice of daily excursions to Inca ruins, villages and markets
  • Trekking in the Sacred Valley of the Incas
  • Machu Picchu: guided tour
  • Puerto Maldonado: choice of daily excursions in the Amazon jungle

Discover Peru’s most breathtaking natural scenery and cultural wonders on this covid-conscious Trailblazer holiday. Travel into the depths of the Amazon rainforest, where you’ll stay in the pristine Tambopata nature reserve which shelters river otters and colourful birds. Adventures from your rustic jungle lodge abound: you may choose to hike at dawn to parrot licks, or sail past caiman on ox-bow lakes before unwinding with an Amazonian massage.

From the heart of the rainforest you’ll travel on to the fertile fields of the Sacred Valley, home to Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas. Roam around sacred ruined temples, walk Andean trails, witness bustling markets or simply sit-back with a drink from a local micro-brewery in your first-class countryside hotel, built in the style of a 17th century colonial hacienda.

Staying in fewer locations, yet within striking distance of many of Peru's highlights, this holiday allows you to soak in your surroundings at leisure and explore Peru’s magnificent landscapes in depth, whilst always staying within your comfort zone.
