Landscapes and Cultures of Peru

Delve into the culture and spectacular landscapes of Peru as you discover some of the key sites.

19 days from £5,240pp plus international flights.

This stunning, 19-day Southern Peru tour takes you to key sites including Machu Picchu and the Sacred valley, Lake Titicaca, Colca Canyon and the Nazca Lines.

  • Guided tours of major sites including Machu Picchu
  • See the Nazca Lines for the air
  • visit the floating reed islands of Lake Titicaca
  • Wonderful marine and bird life
  • Explore historic Lima, Arequipa and Cusco
  • Watch for condors in Colca Canyon
  • Cross the Andes on a luxury train

This is an unforgettable holiday; for 19 days we immerse you in Peruvian history and culture and the glories of the natural world. It's a trip of contrasts - high altitude and ocean, peaceful Andean retreats and bustling cities, natural wonders and manmade splendour.

You'll visit iconic archaeological sites including Machu Picchu and the vast, mysterious Nazca Lines, exploring extraordinary examples of Inca, pre-Inca and colonial architecture and culture. Expert guides will bring everything to life for you, but you also have plenty of time to explore on your own.

City and village tours bring you face-to-face with both historic and present-day Peruvian ways of life, cuisine and art as you shop for crafts and textiles in colourful markets or visit artisan workshops and fine galleries. And boat trips on Lake Titicaca and to 'the poor man's Galapagos' - the uninhabited Ballestas Islands - will give you an insight into the marine life and birdlife of this beautiful country.

You'll travel in comfort, including a day on the deluxe Pullman-style Titicaca Train as it journeys across the Andes to Lake Titicaca, and you'll stay in comfort too. Your accommodation will include an elegant colonial-style hotel in a tranquil part of Arequipa, a 17th century mansion in Cusco, a deluxe eco-lodge and spa in Colca canyon, a beautiful Relais & Chateaux property in lush gardens in the Sacred Valley, a contemporary, luxury hotel by a marine nature reserve in Paracas and a modern hotel with spectacular views of Lake Titicaca.
