The package culminates in the mega-diverse, Amazonian tropical rainforest of Tambopata.
A comprehensive 11-day journey showcasing the most fascinating historical sites of Lima, Cusco and Lake Titicaca, and featuring the world’s most famous trek, the classic four-day Inca Trail en route to Machu Picchu. Breathtaking beauty, the hike of a lifetime, and a dose of inspiration that will stay with you long after you’ve returned home.
This Northern Peru package is an 11-day enchanted odyssey. Experience the distinctive regional customs, traditional food and dance of Peru’s northern coast, Andean highlands and cloud forest jungle. The archaeological tours encompass wondrous ancient kingdoms, including the Chimu, who built Chan Chan, the largest mud-brick citadel in the pre-Columbian Americas; the Moche, among the most accomplished ceramic artists of the ancient world; the Tucume, arguably the most prolific and mysterious pyramid builders; and the Chachapoyas, known as the Cloud People, a mystic, warrior culture of great stone builders in their own right. They constructed the impregnable temple fortress of Kuelap, sometimes referred to as “the Machu Picchu” of the north. The Cloud People fiercely resisted but ultimately succumbed to the imperial expansion of the Inca Empire.
The Moche were among the most accomplished ceramic workers in the world, meticulously documenting in highly realistic fired-clay artifacts their culture, population, religion, architecture and agriculture, their wars, ceremonies and burials, their medicine, arts and sexuality. For nearly 500 years, they dominated Peru’s northern coast, before entering a 2½-century period of climate catastrophes and societal decline. This four-day journey is designed to relate the world’s most dramatic story of climate change in the ancient world, as told through an archaeological retrospective of this magnificent, and ultimately self-destructive and doomed society.
A top luxury vacation with Orient Express and Fertur Peru Travel. Spend your nights relaxing in two of the finest, most exclusive hotels that Cusco has to offer, at a great price. Discover and learn about the historic city of Cusco and its archaeological ruins. Travel in comfort aboard the PeruRail Hiram Bingham train from Poroy to Aguas Calientes and then up to the mountaintop to explore the mystic grounds of Machu Picchu.
In the 15th century, the Inca landscape was a sacred space, conceived according to the alignments of “huacas” — mountains, springs, rocks and shrine deities — integrally connected to a lunar-stellar calendar. Inca priest-astronomers read the sky, lining up natural and man-made markers on the horizon that radiated out from Cusco, the navel of the universe.
This 5-day program sets your sights on that celestial sphere. The ancient Inca cosmo-vision will be front and center in your mind as you visit the incomparable ruins of Machu Picchu, Cusco and the Sacred Valley.
