Over the next few days explore the rainforest with your lodge guides. The exact order of activities and trips may vary. Today, for example, you might walk one of the trails around the lodge, identifying vegetation such as bread fruit trees and rubber trees. After lunch and some downtime, at dusk you could take a canoe trip on the river, looking for nocturnal wildlife.

This morning you may canoe on the nearby oxbow Sandoval Lake, learning about its formation, vegetation and wildlife, which includes blue and yellow macaws, and red howler monkeys. In the afternoon, walk on the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway and learn about its conservation work. In the evening, head out on a night walk to spot wildlife emerging at dusk.

Travel back to Puerto Maldonado's airport by shared transfer and fly to Cuzco. On arrival, you'll be met and transferred to your hotel in the historic former capital of the Inca Empire. We suggest spending the rest of the day relaxing, perhaps taking short walks and acclimatising to the altitude.
Day 7 Cuzco
This morning you're picked up from your hotel by your driver and guide for a private half day tour of Cuzco and several nearby Inca sites. Visit a former Temple of the Sun, and head out of the city to explore ruins such as Tambo Machay, an Inca fountain, and Quenqo Temple, a huge carved monolith. You have the afternoon free - this could be spent ambling around the colonial backstreets and markets.
Day 8 Sacred Valley
Travel by road out of Cuzco with your private guide and driver and enter the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Here, enjoy a private guided tour of key sights such as the Pisac market and terraces, and the fortress town of Ollantaytambo which offers impressive views out across a mountainous valley.
Day 9 Machu Picchu
Take the train to Machu Picchu, accompanied by your guide. This journey follows the rushing Urubamba River. You arrive at the site in the afternoon and take a private tour of the ruins with your guide. They show you the site's highlights, such as the Intihuatana Stone, known as the 'hitching post of the sun'.
Day 10 Cuzco
This morning you have the opportunity to explore Machu Picchu again at your own leisure. You might like to walk the short trail to the nearby Inca Bridge. This afternoon, take the train from Aguas Calientes back to Cuzco, where you're met and taken to your hotel.
