Fly to Cusco, the impressive Andean city that was once the capital of the Inca Empire. Head into the Sacred Valley of the Incas, stopping at AWANAKANCHA to meet local families who preserve the ancient technique of Pre-Columbian weaving using South American camelid fibers. Here is your chance to get up close to the various camelids indigenous to the region, including alpaca, llama, guanaco, and vicuña. Next, continue to PISAC, an old mountain village where you will have free time to shop for local wares such as alpaca sweaters and blankets, jewelry, or hand-painted ornamental dishes and vases.

Day 3 Sacred Valley. Excursion to Machu Picchu

Transfer to the Ollanta station and board the Expedition TRAIN for a short journey through the lush Urubamba Valley to Aguas Calientes, the town at the base of the mountain where Machu Picchu is located. Then, transfer to a motorcoach for the ascent to legendary MACHU PICCHU, the “Lost City of the Incas,” high above the steep valley overlaid with dense tropical jungle. Your Local Guide will bring you closer to the lives and mysteries still hidden in these amazing structures built by the Pre-Columbian masters of this sacred land. Later this afternoon, return by train back to the Sacred Valley and then to your hotel for dinner.

Day 4 Sacred Valley–Cusco

Travel from the Sacred Valley to Cusco, the ancient capital of the Incas. En route stop at semi-circular KENKO Temple with its stone altars and labyrinth of passages, and see the ancient site of Puca Pucara before the TEMPLE OF SACSAYHUAMAN, perched on a hillside overlooking Cusco. It remains unfathomable how and when this fortress of gigantic stones—with some blocks weighing more than 350 tons—was built.

Breakfast Breakfast

Day 5 Cusco

Enjoy a full day at leisure to explore the city of Cusco. Perhaps take an optional walking tour to learn more about the Incas and their struggle against invading Spaniards. Visits include the imposing Cathedral and the Inca Temple of the Sun, Koricancha, which became the Spaniards’ Santo Domingo Monastery.

Breakfast Breakfast

Day 6 Cusco–Juliaca–Puno (Lake Titicaca)

Board a flight to Juliaca and travel to Puno on the shores of Lake Titicaca, visiting the ruins of SILLUSTANI en route. At this pre-Incan burial ground, see where the ancient Aymaras buried their high priests in chullpas—above-ground, cylinder-shaped tombs dating back to the 1400s.

Breakfast Breakfast

Day 7 Puno. Excursion to Lake Titicaca

Today, take a motorboat to the fascinating UROS ISLANDS on LAKE TITICACA, home to the Uros Indians, who were forced to live on the lake as the Inca Indians pushed farther into their territory. These islands are completely made by reeds and are continually added to as they disintegrate to the bottom of the lake. You may also choose our optional excursion to Taquile Island which was once part of the Inca Empire and was one of the last areas of Peru to be conquered by Spain in the 16th century. The Spanish banned traditional dress on the island, which is why the Spanish peasant dress can still be found today. Tonight, your Tour Director hosts a memorable farewell dinner at a local restaurant.

Breakfast Breakfast
DinnerDinner

Day 8 Puno–Juliaca–Lima

Depart for Juliaca this morning and fly to Lima. On arrival, your Local Guide focuses on the city’s colonial heritage during a walking TOUR. Start at the Plaza de Armas to see the Government Palace and the Cathedral. From here, stroll to the venerable SAN FRANCISCO MONASTERY with its splendid 17th-century cloister murals. The remainder of the day is at leisure. Tonight you may want to join our optional excursion to visit the Larco Museum with time to explore and have dinner at its restaurant.
