Signature Peru: Classic highlights of Peru

14 days from £3,597pp
 

Private Journey

 
This thrill-a-minute journey captures the natural and cultural highlights of this extraordinary country. Arrive in the vast metropolis of the capital, Lima, and move on to the arched colonial plazas of Arequipa, Peru’s atmospheric White City, which sits in the desert in the shadow of Volcano Misti. Travel by road up through stark desert scenery to remote Colca Canyon, where a traditional rural lifestyle has been preserved. 

Drive on to the icy, sapphire waters of high-altitude Lake Titicaca. Continue by luxury train (until May 2017, thereafter by road) to historic Cusco, the former Inca capital with its meticulous Inca stonework and graceful colonial architecture. It’s a short drive to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Continue by rail through a narrow gorge to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, set on a mountain saddle above the Urubamba Valley.
