Pelicano: Essential Peru

14 days from £2418pp
 

Group Journey

 
This is a comprehensive holiday packed with stunning highlights. It is a fascinating tour through southern Peru, the heartland of the Inca Empire, where plunging canyons and soaring mountains form a spectacular backdrop to ruined temples and fortresses and indigenous markets awash with bold colour. 

Stand on the rim of the Colca Canyon as condors soar alongside you and tread a cautious foot on to the floating reed islands on the icy waters of Lake Titicaca. The well serviced train ride to Cusco, one of the Great Railway Journeys of the World in anybody’s book, is a superb way to drink in the scenery at a relaxed and comfortable pace.

The adventure continues amid the intricate stonework and cobbled streets of Cusco, the Inca's imperial city, and at the Lost City of Machu Picchu, set on a ridge spur between forested peaks above the River Urubamba, roaring through a tropical canyon.
