Small hotels, apartments and a night with a local family on Lake Titicaca to have an authentic experience with the local community.
If we think about a tour in Peru, we immediately think: Machu Picchu, cute alpacas, the Rainbow Mountain, delicious ceviche and inebriating pisco...right? Yes, in our itinerary we will see all this. Not only that: during our organised tour you'll discover the real Peru, with its Inca cities, its canyons, as well as artificial and floating islands on Lake Titicaca. From Lima, our road trip will lead us at high altitude to the Colca Canyon - we promise, the landscape is breathtaking there! We head off to Chivay to admire the majestic condors flying between the peaks - 100 points to Gryffindor if you spot some! Then, we continue towards Lake Titicaca where we'll meet the locals and we'll immerse ourselves in their traditions. Now it's time to go for an unforgettable trek at 17060 ft on the Rainbow Mountain. Then we'll follow the Inca trail lost in the Sacred Valley and discover the enchanting archaeological site of Machu Picchu. We close the circle in Lima, the capital, still wearing the emotions felt during our journey to discover the most authentic Peru.
During this trip, there are days of pure relaxation and the pace is quite calm. A travel backpack is mandatory - let’s say it’s better if you leave your big luggage at home as there are 10 hotel changes.
The physical effort is greater due to the considerable altitude (between 9842 and 16404 ft), we suggest to hydrate yourself a lot and have light meals. The Rainbow Mountain hike is the most strenuous, but it is optional.
