Ultimate Peru

Uncover the many personalities of Peru on this immersive 15-day adventure combining the newfound icons of the north with the classic must-sees down south. From the captivating streets of Lima, venture to a mountain lodge near Cocachimba to soak up views of Gocta Falls, a towering natural wonder somehow kept secret from the world until 2006. Explore the nearby forts, mausoleums and mummies of the lost Chachapoyas culture, which provides a fascinating window to pre-Columbian people who believed strongly in the afterlife. Then it’s off to tackle the Inca Trail, a feat for which Machu Picchu provides a most spectacular reward.
