    Your Peru itinerary gets exciting today. You will be flying from Lima to the airport in Puerto Maldonado. Upon arrival you will be taken to the headquarters from where you’ll begin your jungle trip. You just need to pack the necessary items you want to take before heading along the river to the Tambopata lodge. Along the way you’ll get to see some wonderful sights from the colourful flora and towering trees to some exciting wildlife on and off the water.

    After being welcomed by the lodge manager you will head out on an exciting night walk. It is darker and more difficult to see, but this is when more animals come out of hiding.

    Day 3: TAMBOPATA – RESEARCH CENTRE – CHUNCHO CLAY LICK

    Stop At: Tambopata National Reserve, Tambopata National Reserve, Madre de Dios Region
    You have a very exciting day ahead today. One of the reasons why Peru holidays are so wonderful is that you get to experience so many different things. You will be journeying for four and a half hours this morning into the heart of the reserve to the research centre. You won’t see any more people about, just plenty of intriguing wild animals.

    Along the way you will stop at the Chuncho clay lick. Due to the fact that the clay includes so much sodium, wild macaw fly from all over to feed. It’s an incredible sight to see and not one that a lot of people get to see.

    A little later on you will enjoy a three to five kilometre Peru trek to an overlook to see the magnificent site of the river meandering down through the rainforest. You might get to see a few monkeys along the way.

    After dinner this evening, you will receive and informative talk about macaws and get to understand a bit more about the threats to their conservation. It can be a real eye opener after you’ve already seen them feeding earlier in the day.

    Duration: 8 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Rainforest Expeditions

    Day 4: MACAW CLAY LICK – FOODPLAIN TRAIL – POND PLATFORM

    Stop At: Tambopata National Reserve, Tambopata National Reserve, Madre de Dios Region
    On your Peru itinerary today is a visit to another claylick. This one is particularly great for seeing all kinds of macaws and various small parrot species. It’s a wonderful thing to see as these species are rare in the wild and not many humans get to witness this. It’s best to go at dawn when most of the birds go to feed.

    Next up is another trail that leads you through a fantastic route of very interesting looking trees, creeks, and ponds. It’s another great place for monkey spotting, so make sure you take your camera.

    If you are a fan of birds then you’ll love the stop at the pond platform. You’ll see a variety of water-frequenting birds, as well as other species including woodpeckers, flycatchers and parakeets.

    In the evening you will get another chance to go on a night walk, if you wish. It’s a final chance to get to see any animals you haven’t already done.

    Duration: 8 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Rainforest Expeditions

    Day 5: PUERTO MALDONADO – CUSCO – SACRED VALLEY

    Stop At: Cusco, Cusco, Cusco Region
    After a satisfying breakfast you will be flying over to the ancient city of Cusco. Upon arrival we will transfer you right away to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. It’s a truly stunning place in the Peru mountains and you’ll get to understand why it was sacred to the ancient civilisation. You head here first to help to adjust to the altitude as Cusco is at 3,400m and the valley is around 2900m.

    Take some time today to be able to enjoy your new surroundings and adjust to the higher altitude. It may be a good time enjoy some coca tea. It does wonders for any altitude symptoms and the leaves are something the Incas would use on a regular basis to give them more energy. Rest up before the next busy day on your Peru itinerary tomorrow.

    Duration: 6 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    Accommodation included: Villa Urubamba

    Day 6: SACRED VALLEY – MARAS – MORAY – PISAC

    Stop At: Sacred Valley of the Incas, 0051 Peru
    Once you are ready and have eaten breakfast, you will be off to visit some special sites in the Sacred Valley. Your first stop is at Maras Salt Mines. This is truly an incredible site to behold. In the middle of the Peru mountains are around 3,000 salt mines that have been in use since Inca times.

    Next on the days itinerary is Moray. This is an Incan archaeological site that looks very different to the others. It almost looks as though a UFO landed there! It’s a collection of large terraced circles that are perfectly crafted.

    Your final stop is at the Pisac archaeological site. This is set up high above the small town and offers some great views across the landscape. Here you will see some other types of Incan constructions as well as tombs built into the rock. It’s one of the best ruins to visit as it’s in a greater state than the rest.

    Enjoy your last night in the valley before we head off for your long awaited Machu Picchu tour.

    Duration: 7 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    Accommodation included: Villa Urubamba

    Day 7: SACRED VALLEY – AGUAS CALIENTES – MACHU PICCHU

    Stop At: Machu Picchu, Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, Cusco Region
    This morning you will be collected from your hotel to be taken to the train station at Ollantaytambo, from where you will depart to Aguas Calientes. This is the town at the base of Machu Picchu.

    In the afternoon you will be going up to the ruins themselves by bus, or you could enjoy a Machu Picchu hike if you prefer and take on the 390 metre uphill climb of around 1,900 steps. After all, Peru treks are world renowned, so it might be a good idea to try a part of one. Once inside, you will get your first glimpse of the incredible Incan citadel and then enjoy a guided tour of all the most important sites. Going in the afternoon means you get to enjoy the place without it being too crowded.

    In the evening you will be having dinner in Aguas Calientes where maybe you should try a pisco sour to toast to the fact you made it to Machu Picchu. You will spend the night at a hotel in the town.

    Duration: 8 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Inkaterra el Mapi

    Day 8: AGUAS CALIENTES – MACHU PICCHU – CUSCO

    Stop At: Machu Picchu, Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, Cusco Region
    This morning you will get another chance to see the ruins at dawn if you wish. It’s also a great time to take the opportunity to climb Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain, if you bought tickets beforehand. Otherwise, you can simply explore as you wish or hike up to the Sun Gate for a great view at no extra cost.

    If you would prefer to stay in the town, this is also an option. You can relax and enjoy a coffee while writing a postcard or head off the hot baths. This is a welcomed treat by many after their busy Peru itinerary.

    In the afternoon and after some nice lunch you will take a train and then car back to the city of Cusco where we will drop you off at your hotel.

    Duration: 8 hours

    Meals included:

You will be an expert on the Incas by now!

    You will also have plenty of free time to explore the city as you wish and stock up on some gifts for friends and family back home. As it’s your last night in the city, why not try one of the best restaurants for dinner to say farewell in style with one last pisco and maybe some guinea pig.
