At a glance

Peru is an intoxicating mix of culture, history and incredible natural scenery. This 14-day trip is perfect for those looking to see the very best of this beautiful country with top-quality service, expert guiding and the best luxury accommodation.

Your adventure starts with a night in Lima before heading to the lush waterways of the northern Amazon. You’ll spend three nights aboard a luxury expedition vessel, gliding through the lush tributaries and enjoying daily excursions by smaller boats so you can explore deep into the rainforest. Depending on the season, you can also embark on nature walks with expert guides as monkeys swing through the trees and colourful birds flit overhead.

You’ll then enjoy a culinary tour back in Lima before heading to the Sacred Valley, an area of jaw-dropping natural beauty and one full of history. Once acclimatized to the altitude, board a luxury train to the legendary Inca city of Machu Picchu. This ancient citadel is shrouded in mystery and your expert private guide will bring them to life.

Return to civilization and more archaeological wonders in the former Inca capital and Spanish colonial city of Cusco, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, then take the train up to Lake Titicaca at 3812m (12,507 feet) above sea level for a final three nights at the fabulous Titilaka. The most luxurious place to stay on the lake, take boat trips out to meet the people that weave the islands on which they live from reeds and learn about the unique cultural importance of its waters to Peru.
