In the attached PDF you will find a day-by-day description. Underneath a general explanation of what you will see and feel.
1) PACIFIC OCEAN COAST AREA
We start our adventure in Lima, the capital city of Peru which is located in the frontline of the Pacific Ocean! A city where eating fresh fish, seafood, vegetables, and fruit is part of their daily life. Their fruit and herbs variations at their markets are amazing and you will be wondering about the name of that new exotic fruit you have never seen before. A gourmet city with an excellent quality and creative cuisine combined with its delicious Pisco Sour cocktails is waiting for you.
Lima is the result of an interesting blend of history, multiracial mix of people, and an amazing multicultural place. Friendly and service oriented, sophisticated and exotic, you will be surrounded by cars which you wonder how they still work; modern, colonial and pre-Inca pyramids can be found in one same street. You will discover Old Colonia Lima by walking with local experts, show you the museums and historic buildings which are worth seeing, and “Limeños” favourite market. Good design and excellent quality textiles, alpaca garments, jewelry and handcraft art.
2) ANDES MOUNTAINS AREA
From the coast line we fly to the Andes main city of Cusco. Cusco was the heart of the Inca Empire and an access point to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu.
Your 5 days plan is based on three main areas:
a) The SACRED VALLEY OF THE INCAS was named so by them due to its immense importance for the Inca Empire Period.
The valley is incredibly large, amazingly fertile, surrounded by beautiful and magnificent Andes Mountains and a wide river which is essential for their living. In certain months rafting can be organized. Fortunately indigenous agriculture is ongoing, and it brings us 4,000 varieties of potatoes, corn, quinoa, other cereals you won’t even recognize, coca leaves, vegetables and fruits.
We suggest changing one of your car journeys into an easy going horse riding at 4, 000mts altitude among the richness of Peruvian agriculture and farmers, no need of previous experience is required, This option is decided individually and can be done over there.
b) MACHU PICCHU & AGUAS CALIENTES VILLAGE. Sleeping in “Aguas Calientes” will allow you to see Machu Picchu in the early morning when only some few are allowed to climb the Huayna Picchu Mountain Peak Your group will have a private English expert guide for a couple of hours at Machu Picchu archeological site. Lunch at the Machu Picchu luxury restaurant located at an exclusive site. After lunch take pleasure on walking around Machu Picchu freely and enjoy its magic.
Sleeping in-situ at Machu Picchu ruins is possible only at one Luxury hotel, where at least 3 months reservation is needed. If you wish to do so, please let us know as soon as possible!
c) THE UNEXPECTED, UNKNOWN & COLORFUL CITY OF CUSCO. Cusco was the political and military capital of the Inca Empire, the largest in pre-Columbian America. It included a large portion of South America; this is part of present Ecuador, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile and small part of Colombia.
Cusco is a must due to its history and heritage buildings, and we promise you its charm has only increased with time, small Inca streets, great textiles, amazing restaurants which are hidden in small courtyards decorated by a New Yorker, an ex-hippie, or a Peruvian artist. Once again you will find a delicious cuisine everywhere around.
Surrounded by Incas archaeology and historic colonial architecture you will understand the importance of the Capital City of the Empire and the effect the Spanish conquer had.
Remember, our goal is to show you what we love and enjoy! So we won’t let you miss the main food market and best of all…. Eat a huge avocado and drink a real fresh seasonal fruit juice. This market is the place where locals have their daily lunch. If you feel, buy some coca leaves and let a “chaman” read what the leaves have to tell to you.
Cusco is a pleasant surprise for everyone!
3) AMAZONAS NATIONAL PARK AREA
You have seen the Pacific Coast, the Andes and now you will experience some life-changing days free from the complexity of city life in the peaceful landscape of the Amazonas. Trust us, it will only make a positive impact on you.
Your days will pass-by doing exciting and fun activities surrounded by nature’s beauty, together with moments for your own listening to the sounds of the Amazonas.
You fly back to Lima, visit main neighbourhoods and….. take pleasure of Peruvian cuisine and a Pisco Sour before you get back home full of photos and anecdotes to tell!
We guarantee you a trip that you will always remember.
