For nature lovers, a journey to Peru is not complete without exploring the world’s largest rainforest. Home to some of the most pristine vegetation in the world, the immense biodiversity (approximately 10% of the planet’s total biodiversity) of the Peruvian Amazon provides endless opportunities for wildlife spotting, rainforest treks and riverboat cruises. Covering nearly 60% of Peru’s landscape, these magical forests are home to hundreds of indigenous communities, who rely solely on this land to survive, as well as a remarkable 40,000 plant species (with 16,000 types of trees alone) and over 5,000 animal species.
Located high up in the Peruvian Andes, lies the city of Cusco. Once the famous capital of the Inca Empire, it is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country as it is close to the iconic Machu Picchu. This city is filled with Inca buildings and history that were rebuilt by the Spanish, making it truly unique. Make sure to properly acclimate once you get there, as Cusco is located at the high altitude of 11,200 feet above sea level.

Machu Picchu stands 2,430 m above sea-level, in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting. It was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Inca Empire at its height; its giant walls, terraces and ramps seem as if they have been cut naturally in the continuous rock escarpments. The natural setting, on the eastern slopes of the Andes, encompasses the upper Amazon basin with its rich diversity of flora and fauna.
Lake Titicaca, straddling the border between Peru and Bolivia in the Andes Mountains, is one of South America’s largest lakes and the world’s highest navigable body of water. Said to be the birthplace of the Incas, it’s home to numerous ruins. Its waters are famously still and brightly reflective. Around it is Titicaca National Reserve, sheltering rare aquatic wildlife such as giant frogs.

Salar de Uyuni, amid the Andes in southwest Bolivia, is the world’s largest salt flat. It’s the legacy of a prehistoric lake that went dry, leaving behind a desertlike, nearly 11,000-sq.-km. landscape of bright-white salt, rock formations and cacti-studded islands. Its otherworldly expanse can be observed from central Incahuasi Island. Though wildlife is rare in this unique ecosystem, it harbors many pink flamingos.

Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

Tent camping at its finest! One of the most popular things to do in South America – and one of the world’s most famous hikes – the Inca Trail is the sort of singular adventure for which we all travel. The hike itself, which brings you along ancient narrow paths deep into the Peruvian countryside and high into the Andean mountains, is gorgeous; perfect Incan ruins, cloud forest, and majestic valley views laid out like bread crumbs along the way to perhaps the greatest end-point of any multi-day hike on earth, the iconic Machu Picchu.

Cuisine

When most of us think of Peru, we think of the ancient ruins and high mountain vistas. Those thoughts may be accompanied by a distant pan flute whistling over the Andes, and if we’ve been primed on the food, the conversation usually starts with the country’s mind boggling variety of potatoes. But culinarily speaking, Peru is the Hope Diamond of Latin America, home to dishes and flavors you won’t find anywhere else.

Peruvian cuisine reflects local practices and ingredients including influences mainly from the indigenous population, including the Inca, and cuisines brought by immigrants from Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Activities

EXPLORE LAKE SANDOVAL IN THE TAMBOPATA NATIONAL RESERVE IN THE AMAZON

Visit Lake Sandoval, a glassy, ox-bow lake located inside the protected Tambopata National Reserve, one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. Reached via a sun-dappled jungle trail, Inkaterra explorer guides enjoy regaling visitors with their tales of unexpected encounters with poison frogs and camouflaged creatures.

Board a dug-out wooden canoe to quietly paddle through mangroves and glide onto Lake Sandoval, flanked by picture-perfect palms. This serene lake is home to thousands of species of birds, the endangered giant river otter, red howler monkeys, red-bellied macaws, anacondas, side-neck turtles and black caimans.

 

CLIMB THE INKATERRA CANOPY WALKWAY

Take a boat ride across the Madre de Dios River to climb the exhilarating Inkaterra Canopy Walkway. The Inkaterra Canopy Walkway is a sophisticated and safe 344-meter network of seven ecologically constructed hanging suspension bridges, strung between eight treetop observation platforms above the forest floor. Originally constructed for our non-profit organization, ITA, to carry out conservation projects, this is an unforgettable opportunity to observe the rainforest from the rooftop and gain a sense of its colossal size. Ascend the first vertiginous tower 38 meters above ground, keeping an eye out for white-throated toucans, woodpeckers, trogons, squirrel monkeys and the three-toed sloth.

TREK THE INCA TRAIL

The difficulty of the Classic Inca Trail is considered to be a moderate level hike. The classic Inca Trail Route is 43 km (26 mi) long and often steep; you will hike over four days at an elevation nearing 13,828 feet (4,215 meters). Although rated moderate, the relentless uphill (and downhill) hiking is tough. Rule of thumb: the fitter you are, the more you’ll enjoy it.

BOAT TOUR OF LAKE TITICACA

Embark on a tour of the lake by slow motorboat, stopping at the floating Uros Islands.

Built by the Uros people to protect themselves from encroaching Inca forces hundreds of years ago, the islands are constructed from many layers of totora reeds that grow in the shallows of the lake. Feel the bizarre sponginess of the island underfoot and learn a little about the history of the communities that called them home.

Then, get a closer look at contemporary life on the shores of the lake with a homestay in a local community. Help your host family with their daily activities, try out a few words in Quechua (most importantly ‘solpayki’ or thank you!) and perhaps join a local soccer game and make some friends on the makeshift pitch.

EXPLORE UYUNI & BOLIVIAN SALT FLATS

Travel to Uyuni and visit the Train Cemetery where locomotives from the end of the 19th century are observed. After that we go to the town of Colchani where the salt processing center is visited, a complete explanation of the drying, grinding and packaging process will be available. Then we will go to the salar, making a rest stop in the Ojos De Salar, where you can see the internal activity of the salar, then we will go to Playa Blanca, or salt museum, vestiges of the hotel activity within the salar then we go to the island of Incahuasi Or Island of the cactus, which is located in the center of the salar, on the way there will be stops for the photo shoots or simply to enjoy the salar, on the island of Incahuasi you can take a walk to the top of where you have a 360 degree view of the salt at as well as views of the giant cacti typical of the region.
