A real kaleidoscope of the Andes - Peru – Bolivia

Begin this amazing adventure by heading direct to Lima.  Here you will spend two night's to recover from the jetlag and time to explore this capital of Peru – known as City of Kings.  From here, it’s into the Amazon Jungle for an encounter you won’t forget!  Fly to remote Puerto Maldonado on the Rio Madre de Dios - a tributary of the Amazon (still unspoiled), where animal and bird spotting is among the best in South America.   

Next we find ourselves with so much to see and do as you explore Cusco the Inca temples and quaint cobble-stone villages, where life goes on as it did so many years ago.  Arrive into beautiful red-tiled Cusco, fabled Navel of the Universe, to explore the Inca Empire – still alive today – and prepare to hike the legendary Inca Trail to the 'Lost City of the Incas', Machu Picchu.  For those not wishing to take up the challenge of the Inca Trail we have an exciting alternative programme.

Across the altiplano  to Puno, on the shores of tranquil Lake Titicaca, where you can experience life on the floating reed islands while visiting the Uros Indians.  Stop overnight in sleepy Copacabana on the lake where you have the option to visit the scenic and tranquil Island of the Sun – legendary birthplace of the sun as it rose out of the lake.

We then take a picture postcard route to La Paz situated at 3900 metres above sea level and where ancient cultures meet the new millineum.  This bustling city is unique, with bowler-hatted ladies selling their fruit and veges on the pavement outside towering skyscrapers.
