Itinerary Inspiration - Peru to Perfection
Iconic Peru in one classic itinerary
This supremely diverse example itinerary is a journey through Peru’s most spectacular landscapes, verdant ecosystems, fascinating cultures, ancient history and thriving cosmopolitan cities.
In Lima you’ll wander through colonial facades and high rises, take bracing walks along crumbling pacific cliffs, visit stately museums and cutting edge art galleries and sample the city’s phenomenal gastronomic scene.
Moving to Cusco and the Sacred Valley you’ll witness Machu Picchu in all its ancient splendor and hike through Andean countryside dotted with colorful villages before boarding the luxury Hiram Bingham train – an experience in its own right as you indulge in four courses of fine dining.
Lake Titicaca presents the opportunity to stay in the beautiful Relais & Châteaux Titilaka, a beautiful lake side lodge set totally off the beaten track among infinite skies and snowcapped peaks. Here you can enjoy the great outdoors, walking, canoeing and biking, explore ancient Inca and pre-Inca ruins and visit the floating reed islands of the Uros people.
The contrast could not be more staggering as you arrive in the Amazon jungle and board the Delfin I. Journeying aboard a luxury vessel on the mighty Amazon River you’ll creep through the sultry undergrowth on foot spotting fascinating flora and fauna, sail a dhow and fish for the famous piranha.
This itinerary is the perfect framework for a spectacular journey through Peru’s wildlife, landscape and cultures past and present but it is just the beginning!
