Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Lima. Upon arrival at Lima Airport, your private driver and guide are waiting to take you to the hotel in the lovely Miraflores neighbourhood of the city.

  • A different way to see some of the city is by bike. On this tour, you will join a small group to visit the Miraflores and Barranco neighbourhoods.

  • Your private driver will return you to Lima airport for the short flight to Cuzco. Your private driver and guide will drive you to your hotel. The afternoon will be yours to enjoy at your leisure as you adjust to the altitude.

  • A great way to adjust to the high altitude and see the main sites of Cuzco is on foot. First, visit Tambomachay in a private vehicle and then walk back down to Cuzco visiting different Inca sites with your private guide.

  • The morning is spent rafting on class III and IV rapids on the Urubamba River before a picnic lunch on the banks of the river.

  • Enjoy a day at leisure in Cuzco. It is a great city to wander around and enjoy the local markets and cafés that look out over the main square.

  • Your private guide will accompany you to Písac, a village at the eastern mouth of the Sacred Valley, which has a popular artisan craft market. Above the village is the impressive Písac citadel, which you will also visit.

  • The private car drives you to the top of a mountain pass, where you begin biking down through a beautiful canyon with a mix of Inca pathways and farming roads. You will reach the Inca terraces of Moray, before finishing the ride at the Maras salt pans.

  • Enjoy a hike from the remote ruins of Pumamarca down through the beautiful Andean countryside to the town of Ollantaytambo.

  • You will be collected from your hotel and taken to the beginning of the Inca Trail where you will be given a briefing and start the trek.

  • The most challenging day on the trail as you cross Dead Woman's Pass at 4,200 metres above sea level.

  • This day involves trekking down Inca staircases and through Inca tunnels, a truly spectacular hike.

  • An early departure toward Inti Punku (the Sun Gate) where you see Machu Picchu and then head down into the ancient citadel. You will have a guided tour and then board your train to head back to Cuzco for the night.

  • Your driver will bid you goodbye as they take you to the airport to begin the journey home.

  • Arrive home today to complete your journey.
