This holiday is all about the experiences, the adventures, the unforgettable things you’ll see and do. The landscapes of the Andes fall from ice-jagged peaks down to soft valleys crammed with fruit and pasture and rise again to sun-baked deserts. This is the home of the condor, llama and alpaca, living alongside little-changing traditional communities. The seismic history of empire, colonisation and resistance is evident in the haunting Inca ruins, Spanish baroque architecture and gaudy local markets.
