Foreign Travel Advice

If you want to see the best of Peru in a short time frame, this itinerary takes in all the highlights between Lima and Cuzco and the Inca Trails to the ruins of Machu Picchu. This includes the Ballestas Islands, the Huacachina Desert, the Nazca Lines, the Colca Canyon, Arequipa and, of course, Cuzco itself. We also get you off the beaten track by trekking along on our exhilarating Wild Andes Trail through the remote Andes above the Urubamba Valley. We cap off your trek with a visit to the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. You will see few people on this unique alternative to the Classic Inca trail, which is your other option if you prefer. We will also get you into the local community and have a great Andean homestay with our Quechuan Indian hosts to learn about their culture.
