Want more days? Fewer days? Less city life? More wildlife? Let us know! We do the planning just to make it easy on you, but the trip is all yours – we’ll add or subtract based on what matters most to you.

Days 1-3

The Sacred Valley

  • Inca past meets Peru’s present: Tour the Maras salt mines and Moray terraces.
  • Lunch at a spectacular Sacred Valley ranch with an award-winning Peruvian Paso Horse Show.
  • Scenic 1st Class Vistadome train ride to the foot of Machu Picchu.

Begin exploring the unfathomable scenery, history and archaeology of this mystical valley surrounded by the peaks of the Andes. The days are filled to the brim with unforgettable views and cultural strongholds, but you can take everything at a leisurely pace! In addition to Inca ruins, you’ll see locals work the looms to produce those iconic textiles, visit Peru’s liveliest artisans’ market and enjoy a couple of gourmet meals along the way.

Days 3-4

Machu Picchu

  • The big event: See the sunrise & stay overnight at Machu Picchu!
  • Full day private guided tour and gourmet lunch at the Sanctuary Lodge.
  • Exclusive entrance & aerial view from a mountain peak above Machu Picchu.

Watch the sun rise over Machu Picchu in one of the quietest hours of the day. You’ll have this profound experience almost entirely to yourself, before hiking to the peak of one of the two limited entrance mountains surrounding Machu Picchu for an unrivalled bird’s eye view of the Inca city. Your private guide will provide you with all the facts, figures and legends while making sure you avoid the crowds to get the most from this once in a lifetime experience.

Days 4-6

Cusco

  • Private tour of Cusco’s highlights including aerial city views from Sacsayhuaman.
  • Explore Cusco’s authentic museums, Inca ruins, unique shops & enchanting streets.
  • Taste the best of Cusco’s local Peruvian fusion cuisine at our favored restaurants.

From the Temple of the Sun and Cathedral to the Inca Citadel of Sacsayhuaman and all the secret stops in between, Cusco is just ripe with historical stops and archaeological sites. The Inca capital is also home to a number of incredible restaurants and romantic bars that will keep you entertained all night. Many visitors like to add an extra day in Cusco to give them more time to soak up the atmosphere.

Days 6-9

The Amazon

  • Stay in a beautiful eco-lodge in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon.
  • Wildlife spotting & exploring the flooded forests of the Amazon.
  • Visit indigenous communities & learn about this magnificent ecosystem.

There’s nothing quite like waking up to the sound of monkeys and exotic birds. With binoculars and cameras at the ready, you’ll explore the “Lungs of the Earth” and the entire natural wonders of the Peruvian Amazon. Traveling responsibly is extremely important and nowhere more so than in the Amazon. We make sure to only use lodges that work sustainably and sensitively with the local indigenous population and that offer low impact excursions when exploring the Amazon’s flora and fauna.
