Overview & Highlights

A group tour to Peru, Bolivia and Chile which provides comfort as well as remote adventure. Includes Cusco, Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca. Continue to La Paz in Bolivia and drive across the dazzling Uyuni salt flats to the Atacama Desert in Chile.

This adventurous yet comfortable journey through the Andean heartland explores a variety of mountain landscapes. After exploring the misty cloud forests surrounding Machu Picchu, and crossing sapphire-hued Lake Titicaca, traverse the sparkling salt flats of Uyuni before descending to the arid rocks of Atacama - the driest desert in the world.

Throughout, a rich indigenous culture is manifest in intricate and brightly coloured costumes and markets bursting with produce and crafts. The imposing ancient ruins bear testament to the region's complex and tumultuous history. The desolate high-altitude desert of south-western Bolivia is beautiful and utterly remote, with rough roads and basic infrastructure (even the hotels are constructed from salt!). An adventurous spirit is necessary to get the most from this memorable trip.
