Overview & Highlights

A highlights holiday where the emphasis is on guided activities which take you deeper than most into the varied landscapes and cultures of the Andes, staying at first class, adventure-focused explora lodges.

  • Panoramic tour of Lima
  • Choice of activities in the Sacred Valley of the Incas
  • Guided tour of Machu Picchu
  • Guided walking Cusco city tour
  • Choice of activities in the Atacama desert

The innovative explora group of lodges, situated on the fringes, or even in the heart, of some of South America's most remote and captivating landscapes, make exploration-in-comfort their watchword. In addition to first class accommodation and gourmet cuisine, a stay there includes a choice of imaginative guided excursions and activities with the flexibility to allow you to choose exactly what you want to see and do. Visit two of these highly rated properties, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas outside Cusco and among the skeletal landscapes of the Atacama desert. Add time to explore the Inca capital  Cusco, Machu Picchu and punctuate your trip with two distinctive capital cities: Lima and Santiago,

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.
