Pelicano: Essential Peru

14 days from £3,131pp
 

Group Journey

 

This is a a fascinating tour through southern Peru, the heartland of the Inca Empire, where plunging canyons and soaring mountains form a spectacular backdrop to ruined temples and fortresses and indigenous markets awash with bold colour.

Stand on the rim of the Colca Canyon as condors soar alongside you and tread a cautious foot on to the floating reed islands on the icy waters of Lake Titicaca. The journey to Cusco is a superb opportunity to drink in the contrasts of the Andean scenery as you descend slowly from the llama-dotted frosted highland prairies to a landscape of small holdings with kitchen gardens and eucalyptus groves on the other side of the watershed.

The adventure continues amid the intricate stonework and cobbled streets of Cusco, the Inca's imperial city, and at the Lost City of Machu Picchu, set on a ridge spur between forested peaks above the River Urubamba, roaring through a tropical canyon.
