Tico Tico: Culture of the Northern Andes

14 days from £2,338pp
 

Group Journey

 
On this adventurous itinerary you will be rewarded by magical landscapes, archaeological treasures, and encounters with welcoming people who will give you an insight into life in the region. The remote highlights of the north of Peru attract fewer visitors than the south, and as such there is a lower level of tourist infrastructure and some long road journeys, but each day offers a fascinating insight into the country’s rich cultural history.

A taste for adventure and discovery is a must; this is a trip through the authentic South America which has remained unchanged for decades.
