Foreign Travel Advice

If you want to see the best of Peru in a short timeframe, then this trip is a must. This fantastic itinerary takes in all the highlights between Lima and Cuzco, including the Ballestas Islands, the Huacachina Desert, the Nazca Lines, the Colca Canyon, Arequipa , Cuzco itself along with the Inca Trails and the phenomenal ruins of Machu Picchu.

The trip is packed with highlights but our travellers tell us that the best part of it all is our Wild Andes trek above the Urubamba Valley which leaves the tourist trails behind, as well as our stay in a remote Quechuan village with our local hosts.

This trip also crosses the high plateau of the Altiplano into Bolivia at the serene shores of Lake Titicaca and its sacred Inca island of Isla del Sol, before moving on to the thriving Bolivian city of La Paz.
