Hello everybody! Many of you have requested that I plan a trip to Peru...Well, I finally did it and it is going to be an amazing trip! From 4 July Protected content , 2015, (check date) we will spend 20 days and 19 nights in the remarkable country of Peru. This trip is a land package only that includes all hotel accommodations, flights within Peru, trains, buses and all tours and entrance fees! It also includes a daily breakfast buffet and other meals as stated in the day-by-day itinerary.
Here is an overview of what is planned. I do have a more detailed, day-by-day itinerary, for anyone interested in going on this adventure.
We begin our trip in Lima for a few days exploring local sights,This will be a good few days for anyone who needs time to recover from jet-lag. Then, we will be heading to Arequipa where we will visit Colca Canyon, one the deepest canyons in the world...nearly twice as deep as the US' Grand Canyon. Next we will go to Puno and visit Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world. After visiting the floating islands, we will travel in style on a beautiful train (Andean Explorer) through the Andes to Cusco. In Cusco, we will learn some Peruvian history and visit some ruins before heading up to Machu Picchu, one of the New Wonders of the World, a national sanctuary and UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site! We will fly back to Lima for a couple of days before heading south to Ica where we will be staying in an oasis town, Huacachina. We will also visit the mysterious Nazca Lines, one of the most iconic sights in the world and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Back in Lima, we will spend another couple days before returning home with the most amazing memories.
