Itinerary



Upon arrival at the Lima airport, meet our Incas Expert Travel representative for a transfer to your confirmed Lima hotel.


If arriving early, you can also take in scenic Parque del Amor (Love Park) in Miraflores for views of Lima's gorgeous coastline.



Begin your jungle adventure with a flight to Puerto Maldonado. Meet the lodge staff on arrival, transfer to the port, and board a motorized canoe to travel by river to your lodge.

Spend the rest of the afternoon acclimating to the rainforest environment. Your naturalist guide will tell you more about what to expect during your stay.



Your excursions today will allow you to glimpse the incredible biodiversity of Peru’s rainforest. Visit an oxbow lake to observe hoatzin birds, squirrel monkeys, and giant otters. Learn about medicinal plants and how Amazonian communities use them. At night, join your guide to spot critters that only come out after dark.



Continue your exploration of the rainforest with a visit to a clay lick where parrots and macaws gather. Explore a trail that winds through giant ceiba trees reaching 500 feet (150 meters) tall. Travel by boat to an organic farm where locals cultivate a range of fruits and vegetables, some of which will be strange and others familiar.



After a final breakfast at the lodge, board a boat for the journey back to Puerto Maldonado and transfer to the airport for your flight to Cusco.

Upon arrival at the Cusco airport, meet our representative and transfer to your hotel. You have the rest of the afternoon to explore the city. Remember to take it easy on your first day at altitude.



Begin your day with a private guided tour of Cusco’s most important sites. Start with a visit to the Cusco Cathedral and Qoricancha. Later, see the impressive ruins of Sacsayhuaman.

Spend the afternoon at your leisure. Shop with locals at San Pedro Market or wander the streets of bohemian San Blas.



Meet your guide for a trip to the Sacred Valley. Your private tour visits the concentric circle terraces of Moray which descend nearly 500 feet (150 meters) into the earth, the multi-hued salt pans of Maras, and the monolithic fortress ruins of Ollantaytambo. At the end of the tour, catch the train to Aguas Calientes, base town for Machu Picchu.



Wake up early and meet your guide for a memorable walk through the “lost city of the Incas” and let yourself be swept away by the magical landscape that surrounds this important ruin. Finish up with last photos and then return to Aguas Calientes town for the return trip to Cusco.

Upgrade options:
Climb Huayna Picchu for views over the ruins or add an extra day in Machu Picchu.



Enjoy a final breakfast at your Cusco hotel. Then meet our representative for a transfer to the airport to begin your journey back home.

You can also customize this itinerary to continue your exploration of Peru’s wonders.
