Short Description

This grand Peruvian experience combines two of the world's premier destinations: Machu Picchu and the Amazon rainforest. On this 14-day journey you will visit Cusco, the Capital of the Inca Empire, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, finishing your trip deep in the Amazon rainforest. Explore the markets and ruins of Cusco and the Sacred Valley, journey by train to the "Lost City of Machu Picchu". From Iquitos you will sail upriver on a luxury riverboat. You will sail along tributaries of the Amazon River to the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve. Along the way you will spot pink river dolphins, learn about the local flora and fauna, take canoes up smaller tributaries, visit local communities, and fish for piranhas.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

Itinerary

Day 1: Lima

Upon arrival in Lima, You will spend the night in the Wyndham Costa del Sol Airport Hotel, located just outside the terminal.

Day 2: Lima- Cusco- Sacred Valley

In the morning, a short flight takes you to Cuzco, where You will be picked up and shuttled to scenic Urubamba, in Peru’s Sacred Valley. This gorgeous landscape was the Inca heartland, and your hotel, the Hotel Sol y Luna, will let you acclimate to the region’s altitude in comfort and style.

Day 3: Sacred Valley- Pisac Ruins / Market- Ollantaytambo

After a hearty Peruvian breakfast, You will spend a full day at two royal ruins in the valley around Urubamba—both built by the emperor Pachacutec. The first, Pisac, is a vast residential and military complex, built amid sweeping agricultural terraces and overlooking a quaint market town selling alpaca sweaters and handicrafts.

The second, the fortress of Ollantaytambo, terrified the Spanish with its gargantuan parapets, and is set in the only surviving Inca village in the Andes. Afterward, You will be brought back to your hotel to rest.

Day 4: Urubamba- Machu Picchu- Cusco

However many selfies you’ve seen of that iconic sugarloaf backdrop, nothing can prepare you for the moment when you get to the top of the ridge and actually see Machu Picchu for yourself. With its sun temple, royal quarters, and purling fountains, this New World Wonder dazzles with its imperial stonework.

On this day, You will take a luxury train from Ollantaytambo, after which you can climb to the sun gate and cross an Inca bridge. You will overnight at El Mapi Hotel in Aguas Calientes, huddled beneath Machu Picchu Mountain.

Day 5: Machu Picchu- Cusco

Most visitors feel one day at Machu Picchu is too short. So the next morning, you can hike up to the Sun Gate or climb Huayna Picchu, the sacred mountain containing hidden Inca shrines. From there, it’s back by train to Cuzco, where You will rest in Aranwa Boutique Hotel, just steps from the main square.

Day 6: Cusco

Inca walls on every corner; three-tiered fortresses; Quechua women in colorful traditional garb: this is Cuzco, which the Incas considered the spiritual center of the universe. Even today, the city’s energy is unmistakable, as you wander through echoing churches and the most sacred Inca temple of them all, the Qorikancha.

You will also visit several Inca ruins just outside the city, including Sacsayhuaman, the citadel where the Incas nearly defeated the Spanish in battle—and which is carved from some of the most massive stones on the planet.

Day 7: Cusco- Lima

After a half day to wander Cuzco at your leisure, You will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Lima. There You will overnight at the San Augustin Exclusive Hotel, in the seaside district of Miraflores.

Day 8: Lima- Iquitos

In the morning, a short flight takes you to Iquitos, the largest city on Earth inaccessible by road. There, prepare to be thrilled by the exotic sights of the jungle, including an iron house built by Gustave Eiffel, a floating market, a manatee rescue center, and more.

Next up: transfer to the Amatista, the air-conditioned wooden riverboat that takes you to heart of the Amazon. On board, You will be on the lookout for jungle birds, iguanas, and the magical pink dolphins that, legend says, use their charms to hypnotize unsuspecting women.

Day 9: Marañon and Ucayali rivers

After breakfast, a boat excursion brings you to the meeting of the Marañon and Ucayali Rivers, which together give birth to the mighty Amazon. Macaws, three-toe sloths, and monkeys frolic on shore as you pass.

After lunch, You will stroll along the banks of the Ucayali to experience its exotic flora and fauna, such as the ten-foot Victoria Regia water lily, the giant otter, and the Amazonian manatee. In the afternoon, it’s back to the ship, for an evening of socializing with your fellow passengers and a dinner of gourmet jungle cuisine.

Day 10: Rio Ucayali / Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

Pacaya Samiria Reserve is Peru's largest national park, and home to more than 200 avian and 10 primate species. Here, on an early-morning outing, You will encounter rare specimens such as cocoi, striated herons, macaws, squirrel monkeys, caimans, and sloths. Back on board for breakfast, You will enjoy a fascinating presentation on the history and culture of the Amazon's main tribes.

In the afternoon, You will have a rare opportunity to meet a key figure in the Amazon: a practicing shaman. Entering an out-of-body trance, this traditional religious healer enlists the denizens of the spirit world to cure the sick—and bring the deceased down to their final rest. When you talk to him, You will learn about both his spiritual craft and the rainforest plants that, for centuries, have been treasured for their curative properties.

Day 11: Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

The jungle is especially luminous in the early morning. To immerse yourself in its beauty, You will head out on a pre-breakfast excursion, to watch the river turtles, cormorants, and wattled jacana wake up and start their day. Later, You will stop in at the home of an indigenous family, to learn about their ancestral way of life while sharing a midday meal.

The afternoon is your free time to relax. After dinner, You will take a night time boat ride into the wild, where bats, capybaras, and poison frogs reveal another side of the Amazon. Your flashlight may catch the red gaze of a black caiman, or reveal the glowing yellow eyes of a jaguar!

Day 12: Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

Picnic breakfast in the jungle, piranha fishing, travel in a dugout canoe: such is the agenda for your last full day up into the Amazon, as you explore the Nahuapa River and its tributary, Choroyacu Creek. The impressively bio-diverse ecosystem here is famous for its fish-among them, the fearsome piranha.

You can relax, though: these ferocious biters are more eaten than eaters, being a dietary staple for many of the rainforest’s indigenous tribes. Afterwards, You will have time to swim with the river dolphins before heading back to the riverboat for a leisurely afternoon-and final night time excursion.

Day 13: Pacaya Samiria National Reserve

On the return trip to Iquitos, You will stop at the Sapisapi River and the jungle port town of Nauta, near the meeting of the Ucayali and Marañon. Here You will have a chance to browse the local market before celebrating with a farewell dinner and party.

Day 14: Iquitos- Lima- Home

After breakfast on board your ship, You will disembark in Iquitos for your flight to Lima. Connect with your international departure.

Our travel specialist did an excellent job to accommodate our time and budget.  We saw and did an enormous amount.  The guides were excellent and very informative.  It was wonderful to be picked up and guided around, whether it was to have our boarding passes printed and handed to us or to learn of the history/current affairs of Peru.  Thank you so much.

They were very punctual and the guides were accommodating and informative. The service exceeded our expectations. The hotels were wonderful and the staff great. All forms of transportation were perfect and all were very polite. In Peru, my stay in in the Amazon lodge was a once in a lifetime experience - staying in the heart of the jungle and being at one with nature was an amazing feeling. The staff there were very attentive and friendly. The lake Titicaca tour in Puno was also a lot of fun - especially visiting the floating islands and learning about its nature and history was very interesting!

Our agent was responsible and flexible and put together a nice package for our relatively short trip. It was a great balance of time on our own to explore and time with a guide. The only minor issue was in getting the written itinerary cleaned up so that it clearly reflected our travel plans. I would definitely use this company again. The local tour company (drivers and guides) were great.  They were friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible.  It was great to have people who grew up in the area and who had also been well-trained in the history and culture.  However, the most enjoyable part of the trip was our stay at Sol y Luna.  This is a treasure of a hotel tucked away on a nondescript side street in the Sacred Valley.  Words can't even describe how wonderful it was.  I've traveled all over the world, and I've never stayed at a hotel this nice for a reasonable price.
