Northern Peru & Andes Cultural Tour

14 days from £2,421pp
 

Group Journey

 
On this adventurous itinerary you will be rewarded by magical landscapes, archaeological treasures, and encounters with welcoming people who will give you an insight into life in the region. The remote highlights of the north of Peru attract fewer visitors than the south, and as such there is a lower level of tourist infrastructure and some long road journeys, but each day offers a fascinating insight into the country’s rich cultural history.

A taste for adventure and discovery is a must; this is a trip through the authentic South America which has remained unchanged for decades.

What our experts say

For lovers of history and archaeology, the Tico Tico journey is a dream come true. The itinerary travels to northern Peru, where there is a multitude of sites where the vestiges of a range of pre-Columbian cultures are laid bare.  Visit the adobe pyramids of Moche Chan Chan, and the Chachapoyan fort Kuelap, perched on a mountain top. Colonial gems are not ignored however: Trujillo and Cajamarca  are brilliant examples of these.
