Peruvian Journey With Nazca, Ballestas Islands And Machu Picchu

from
£1899/per adult

Overview

Historically rich and riddled with World Heritage Sites, ancient Incan landmarks and dazzling metropoles, Peru is as culturally diverse as they come.

For this twelve-night getaway, jet off to the must-sees of this South American slither of paradise – from spellbinding city streets redolent of centuries past, to out-of-this-world landscapes such as Lake Titicaca and the Nazca Lines, you’ll have the chance to see it all.

Starting off in Lima, enjoy a sightseeing tour of the capital’s unmissable landmarks and monuments. While away the hours in its thrumming colonial centre, stopping in at the Museo Larco (home to pre-Columbian art), the iconic Plaza de Armas and the 16th century cathedral. 

Then, briefly swap city for sea with a boat tour of the idyllic Ballestas Islands before proceeding to the city of Nazca on the southern coast. Here, history buffs will be in their element; you will have the opportunity to take an optional trip over the impressive and mysterious Nazca Lines, a series of pre-Columbian geoglyphs etched into desert sands.

Next up, head to the thronging colonial streets of Arequipa, a city fringed by three mighty volcanoes and chockful of baroque-style buildings made from white volcanic stone. Lose yourself in the hustle and bustle of the Plaza de Armas, marvel at the Santa Catalina Convent and gaze up at the Church of the Company. 

Then, spend some time at the Colca Valley and Canyon – one of the world’s deepest at 4000 metres and a brilliant trekking destination. With frozen-in-time indigenous villages, an emerald-hued valley and giant Andean condors constantly soaring through the pockets of this bulbous piece of land, the Colca area will no doubt be a highlight of your tour. 

You’ll then stop off in Puno, nestled on the shores of Lake Titicaca (the world’s highest navigable lake) and the country’s ‘folkloric capital’ before heading to the former hub of the Inca Empire – Cusco.

Here, dive headfirst into the history of this sparkling city with a sightseeing tour, and visit nearby archaeological sites, such as Tambomachay and Qengo. You’ll find that Incan ruins lurk around every corner in Cusco, majestic and unexpected.

The last leg of your tour will be spent in the Sacred Valley, home to remote villages, wrinkled by time, and then in Machu Picchu, an impossibly beautiful Incan citadel nestled high up in the Andes Mountains.

 Cap off your holiday with a guided tour of this 15th century treasure dubbed ‘the Lost City of the Incas’ and whose age-old rooms, temples and monuments are slowly being eaten away at by the jungle.
