Description

Our grand tour of Peru offers discerning guests the chance to experience Peru in superb style. Begin by flying to Cuzco and transferring into the Sacred Valley to relax at the Hotel Rio Sagrado amongst beautiful rural scenery and traditional Andean villages. This is a great spot to acclimatise to the altitude and take in some gentle exploration of the local markets, Inca sites and stunning Andean landscapes.

Continue by the luxury Hiram Bingham train to Machu Picchu to witness this magical ancient citadel, staying at the Sanctuary Lodge located right by the ruins, before taking the Hiram Bingham back to Cuzco. Check in at Palacio Nazarenas, Cuzco’s swishest hotel, for two nights a meticulously restored former convent, and enjoy the cultural heritage of this famous city. Spectacular Inca ruins, grand colonial architecture and great museums are all within easy reach.

For many, the train to Puno is a real highlight, as you cross the vast altiplano, but things get even better when you arrive at Titilaka, a luxury lodge with gorgeous views over the lake and towards the Cordillera Real. During your three nights here, be sure to visit the floating reed islands of the Uros Indians.

Lima, the gastronomic capital of South America, beckons for a night, as you stay at the Miraflores Park Hotel, ideally located overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy some superlative seafood and take in a traditional pena in the trendy Barranco district.

Finally jet down to the Amazon basin to board the Aria Amazon, a superbly luxurious small expedition vessel that plies the remoter reaches of the Amazon. Fantastic wildlife viewing and encounters with indigenous tribes as well as memorable sunsets provide a fitting climax to this journey of a lifetime.

Fly back to Lima for a final night at the Miraflores Park before returning home.

When to go

April to October is best for time for visiting Peru’s Andean region and main highlights. It is typically sunny in the day and cold at night due to the altitude. Heavy rains last from December to end of February with January and February being the wettest months. The Amazon is generally hot, wet and humid year round. Peru is very popular in the high season, especially during their many cultural festivals such as Inti Raymi on 24 June, so best to plan well in advance.
