Often referred to as the “Land of the Incas,” Peru is a magical world of myths and legends. Hike the Inca Trail or climb aboard the Orient Express Hiram Bingham rail service to the ancient site of Machu Picchu, named one of the seven new wonders of the world. Machu Picchu, a mysterious and mystical place built by the Incas around 1460, is the most visited site in Peru and world renowned not only for its architecture, but for its spectacular mountain location overlooking the Urubamba River.
From the air, view the mysterious Nazca Lines, ancient geoglyphs, etched in the sands of the arid desert coast in southern Peru.
Picture yourself enjoying a stay in a luxury eco-lodge in the Amazon River Basin. Embark on day trips of hiking, rafting, bird and animal viewing.
Tour the Sacred Valley of the Incas via bus, hiking or biking. Visit ancient ruins and the fortress of Ollantaytambo, shop for local handcrafted goods in Pisac Market, see the Salt Terraces. Marvel at the people and traditions of Peru, a beautiful country with a rich culture and history.
Consider extending your cultural tour across the border into Bolivia.
Boasting the world’s highest navigable body of water, Lake Titicaca, as well as its highest capital, La Paz, Bolivia is a country of mystical places and ancient wisdom. It is where the Inca world was born. Even today, Bolivian healers called Kallawaya, speak in the ancient language of Ayamaran, promote a balanced life and inner peace and honor Mother Earth (Pachamama) through sacred rituals. Because of its relative remoteness and its strong native culture, Bolivia is often referred to as “The Tibet of South America”. Discuss the opportunities available in Bolivia with your Tour Specialist.
