1. Tag: Lima

Welcome to Peru's coastal capital. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm where you'll meet your tour leader and travel group. There are no other activities planned for today, but why not head out with the group after this important meeting and get to know each other better over dinner. Whether you dine with the group or sample the city's renowned food scene on your own, don't miss sampling Peru's national dish, ceviche (raw rish marinated in lime juice, often served with hot peppers). If you're not a fan of seafood, there are plenty of other excellent options on offer. Ask your tour leader for advice.

If you arrive early, perhaps take a walk around the vibrant Miraflores area. Alternatively, stroll along to Parque del Amor (Love Park) for a great view of Lima's beaches.

Special Information: Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask the hotel reception where the welcome meeting will take place. If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader. After the meeting there will be an optional group dinner. If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time for the meeting, you may wish to arrive a day early so you're able to attend. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability).

2. Tag: Lima

This morning, set out on a half-day walking tour of Lima's historical centre. Take in the ornate spectacle of the colonial mansions, palaces and churches that line the streets; choose to pay a visit to San Francisco Monastery and its catacombs; and browse the fresh produce on offer at Lima's central market, tasting fresh fruit and street food. Your walking tour wraps up in Lima's main square, with the rest of the day free to do as you wish. Later, perhap head out for dinner with the group.

Flanked by streets of ornate mansions, palaces and churches, Plaza Mayor is the best place to start any exploration of Lima. Take a walk through the old streets to get a feel for colonial life. On one side of the plaza is the Cathedral of Lima, which houses the remains of Lima's founder, Francisco Pizarro. Nearby is the San Francisco Monastery, with its catacombs containing some 70,000 human remains (entry is optional and at travellers' expense). The afternoon is free for you to explore the city on your own. In the evening, perhaps try some ceviche for dinner.

Optional Activities:
Lima - Guided tour of San Francisco Monastery including The Catacombs - PEN20

3. Tag: Lima - Paracas

Head off at around 6 am travel by taxi or minivan to Lima's bus station and take a local bus to Paracas (approximately 4 hours). During this journey it's unlikely the bus will make any stops, so please ensure you prepare yourself with water, snacks and anything else necessary. The small fishing town of Paracas is the gateway to the Islas Ballestas and the Paracas National Reserve. You'll have the option of visiting Paracas National Reserve today with a local guide. The duration of the tour is around 2–2.5 hours, allowing you to enjoy the beautiful Maritime landscapes and desert. For some local food specialities back in town, head to the boulevard near the beach and try some tejas, which are small sweets made from nuts and dried fruits.

Optional Activities:
Paracas - National Reserve guided tour - PEN50

Fahrzeit: ca. 4 Std.

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

4. Tag: Nazca

Islas Ballestas makes for a great (optional) day trip today. Here there will be lots of opportunities to see wildlife such as penguins, sea lions and flamingos from a speedboat. Later in the morning continue onto Nazca, which takes around three hours (it's likely there won't be any stops). Arrive in the early afternoon. The Nazca Lines are enormous designs inscribed into the desert. Who drew them, how and why is unknown, but most scientists believe the Nazca people created them about 2,000 years ago. Consider an optional scenic flight to see them from the air – this lasts 30 minutes and covers most of the 26 impressions (planes turn sharply from one side to another to facilitate viewing from both sides of the plane, so this is not for those with a weak stomach!)

Special Information: While it's impossible to guarantee the safety of air operations, your leader can only assist you to book the Nazca scenic flight activity through companies Intrepid assesses are safer to fly with. Your leader is specifically prohibited from recommending or assisting booking this activity through any other operators.

Optional Activities:
Ballestas Islands - Guided tour - PEN57
Nazca - Flight Over the Nazca Lines - USD100

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

5. Tag: Nazca - Arequipa

Early afternoon, take a transfer to the bus station. Board a local bus to Arequipa, the bus ride is long (approximately 11 hours, with no stops). Lunch will be served on the bus, and later around dinner time there will be a small snack. Don't forget to pack plenty of water, snacks and perhaps a good book! Arrive into Arequipa around midnight and transfer to the hotel. Standing at the foot of El Misti volcano and exuding Spanish colonial charm, Arequipa vies with Cusco for the title of Peru's most attractive city.

Fahrzeit: ca. 11 Std.

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

6. Tag: Arequipa

This morning your leader will take you on an orientation walk in which you will visit the main square and Mercado San Camilo. The remainder of the day is free day to explore Arequipa. Perhaps start at Monasterio de Santa Catalina for a glimpse into a bygone way of life. The 16th-century convent has a unique history, having once only accepted women from high-class Spanish families. From here, call by the Juanita Museum and take a look at the ‘Ice Maiden’, the Incan mummy of a young girl who died in the 1440s. During your walk around Arequipa, you'll come to understand why it’s referred to as the ‘White City’. Built out of the pale volcanic rock, the old buildings shine brightly in the sunshine. While away the rest of your day in the cafes and restaurants on the main plaza.

Optional Activities:
Arequipa - Juanita Museum - PEN20
Arequipa - Santa Catalina Monastery - PEN45

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

7. Tag: Colca Canyon

In the morning, at around 8 am, venture out by minivan to Chivay (approximately 5 hours). Stop to take pictures along the way, as you're likely to see llamas, alpacas and vicunas. After around two hours of driving, you'll have the chance to try some coca tea from local tea stalls. After a third stop at Patapampa (the highest place of the trip at 4,800 metres above sea level), descend to Chivay town. Choose to spend your evening soaking in the baths, dining on Alpaca steak or listening to live Andean music at a pena (music hall).

Notes: Accommodation in Chivay is in a very basic hostel. While there are en suite toilets, there's no heating (you can request extra blankets) and some rooms can be noisy.

Optional Activities:
Colca Canyon - La Calera hot springs - PEN15

8. Tag: Arequipa

Early in the morning take a short drive into the canyon to witness the morning routine of the Andean condor. This is an amazing opportunity to see the world's largest flying bird in predator mode. Depending on weather conditions there will be a short walk around the area (approximately 45 minutes) before you return to Chivay. In the afternoon, travel back to Arequipa (approximately 5 hours). Enjoy a free evening to do as you wish.

Fahrzeit: ca. 6 Std.

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

9. Tag: Arequipa - Nachtbus nach Cusco

Use your last day in Arequipa to get under the skin of the city. For a bit of culture, stroll down to Casa Museo Villalobos for a look at the extensive art collection that’s housed there. If you’re looking for something a bit more hands-on, there are regular cooking classes in the city. For more ideas on what to do, please speak with your trip leader. This evening at about 7.30 pm transfer to the bus station. Soon after, board an overnight bus to Cusco (approximately 11 hours with no stops; please consider that there is only one road out of Arequipa so it's possible there could be delays at the beginning of the journey). The bus has comfortable reclining seats and a toilet on board. Dinner will be served on board, however it's recommended to pack some water and snacks.

Special Information: Overnight buses in South America can often get quite cold due to the Air-conditioning being left on. Another thing to consider is often the driver may put a DVD on (quite loud). We recommend packing a few layers to keep warm during the journey and a pair of earplugs if you plan to get some sleep.

Fahrzeit: ca. 11 Std.

Unterkunft: Nachtbus

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

10. Tag: Cusco

Your overnight bus should arrive in Cusco between 6.30 and 7.30 am. Head to the hotel in town for breakfast. Your leader will then give you the choice of heading straight out for an orientation walk; alternatively the group may decide to have some time to rest for a few hours, in which case the orientation walk will be done in the afternoon. During the walking tour you’ll visit the facade of Qoricancha temple, the local San Pedro market, the main square, past the 12 Angled Stone, Regocijo Square and San Blas Square. The order of visiting these locations, may vary according to hotel location and your tour leader’s preference. In your free time may want to book some of the optional activities available in Cusco.

11. Tag: Inca Trail, Inca Quarry Trail oder Zugoption

Depending on your pre-arranged travel arrangements, during the next four days you may: hike the Classic Inca Trail, hike the Inca Quarry Trail or stay in Cusco for another two days before taking the train to Aguas Calientes. While away from Cusco, the bulk of your luggage will be stored at your hotel. If you’re hiking the Inca Trail or the Inca Quarry Trail, the evening before you leave Cusco you'll receive a small duffle bag to carry your clothes in for the next four days (5 kg maximum).

Your team of porters will carry these bags for you, together with the food and equipment for the trail. Please note that you won't have access to these items until the end of each day, as the porters will always be ahead of the group. If you’re travelling to Aguas Calientes by train, you'll be able to leave most of your luggage at the hotel in Cusco and only travel with the necessary items for the next few days.

Route 1: Classic Inca Trail
Travel by minivan to the 82 km marker and meet your crew of local porters, cook and guide. The first day includes uphill trekking to the campsite, which is at 3100 metres above sea level. On the way you’ll see the ruins of Llactapata, which was burnt to the ground by the last Inca emperor to discourage Spanish pursuit down the trail. In the evening, set up camp while the cook makes dinner.

Notes: The Inca Trail is within the abilities of most reasonably fit people, but please come prepared, as the trail is 45 km long and often steep. Each day's journey generally consists of seven hours of walking (uphill and downhill), with stops for snacks and lunch. Trekking usually begins at 7 am (except on the fourth morning) and you reach the campsite around 5 pm. Accommodation on the trek is camping (three nights). Double tents (twin-share) and foam camping mats will be provided. The porters will set up the tents while the cook prepares meals.

Route 2: Inca Quarry Trail
Make an early start today and drive to Choquequilla, a small ceremonial place where Incas worshipped the moon. Drive to the starting point of the trek, Rafq'a, and meet the horsemen who join us on the hike. After an hour’s walk, reach the small community of Socma. Carry on to the Perolniyoc cascade lookout, an opportunity to stop for photos and a food break. Continue to the campsite, which is 3700 metres above sea level. You should reach the campsite around lunchtime. After lunch, set off to explore the Q'orimarca archaeological site, which once served as a checkpoint to the Incas.

Notes: The Inca Quarry Trail is within the abilities of most reasonably fit people. The hike is 26 km long in total and its highest pass is at 4450 metres above sea level. Throughout the trek, horses will carry your gear and camping equipment. The first two nights are spent camping and the third night you will stay at a simple hotel. Double tents (twin-share) and foam camping mats will be provided. The porters will set up the tents while the cook prepares meals.

Route 3: Train
For those travellers disinterested in hiking the trail or who are unable to, spend two extra nights in Cusco before travelling by bus to Ollantaytambo. From here take a train through the winding Urubamba Valley to the town of Aguas Calientes where you’ll spend a third night.

Please note: Included lunch and dinner on this day is for people trekking the Inca or Inca Quarry Trail only.

12. Tag: Inca Trail, Inca Quarry Trail oder Zugoption

Route 1: Classic Inca Trail
This is the most challenging day of the trek, as we ascend a long steep path (approximately 5 hours) to reach the highest point of the trail. Colloquially known as 'Dead Woman's Pass', Warmiwanusca sits at a height of 4200 metres above sea level, providing amazing views of the valley below. The group will then descend to the campsite in the Pacaymayo Valley at 3650 metres.

Route 2: Inca Quarry Trail
This is the most challenging and rewarding day of the hike. A three-hour walk takes us to the top of the first pass of Puccaqasa (approximately 4370 metres high). After enjoying picturesque views of the valley, it’s a short walk before stopping for lunch. Afterwards, make the hike to Kuychicassa (approximately 2 hours); this is the highest pass of the trek at 4450 metres. From here, descend to the sacred site the Incas called Intipunku (Sun Gate), with views of the Nevado Veronica mountain. Head to the campsite, which is only a stone’s throw away at Choquetacarpo.

Route 3: Train
Today, perhaps use your free day indulging your inner foodie in the eateries of Cusco. Head to lunch at the arty Fallen Angel restaurant, and if you still have room for dessert, the ChocoMuseo offers tastings and chocolate-marking workshops.

Please note: Included lunch and dinner on this day is for people trekking the Inca or Inca Quarry Trail only.

Unterkunft: Campingplatz

13. Tag: Inca Trail, Inca Quarry Trail oder Zugoption

Route 1: Classic Inca Trail
Start the day with a climb through the Pacaymayo Valley to Runkuracay pass (3980 metres). Enjoy views of the snow-capped mountain of Cordillera Vilcabamba before descending (approximately 2–3 hours) to the ruins of Sayacmarca. Continue over the trail’s third pass to the ruins of Phuyupatamarca (3850 metres), also known as 'Town Above the Clouds'. Start the descent down the Inca steps (approximately 2 hours), which takes you to the final night's campsite by the Winay Wayna archaeological site.

Route 2: Inca Quarry Trail
Today’s hike will all be downhill. The first stop is the incomplete Kachiqata quarry, where the Incas were intercepted by the Spanish. Around midday, come to the end of the trek. Explore the cobbled streets of Ollantaytambo before taking the short train journey to Aguas Calientes. This is where you’ll meet up with the travellers in your group who didn't hike. Spend the night in a comfortable hotel before tomorrow’s visit to Machu Picchu.

Route 3: Train
In the morning take the train to the town of Aguas Calientes (approximately 3 hours), which is nestled in the hills at the foot of Machu Picchu. For those who want to, there’s time to visit Machu Picchu independently before the guided tour the next day. If you’d like to do this, please advise your group leader at the welcome meeting at the start of the trip.

Please note: Included lunch and dinner on this day is for people trekking the Inca or Inca Quarry Trail only.

Unterkunft: Campingplatz

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

14. Tag: Inca Trail, Inca Quarry Trail oder Zugoption und Machu Picchu / Ollantaytambo

Route 1: Classic Inca Trail
The day starts before dawn with breakfast at 4 am. Say farewell to the porters as they descend to the train station and then begin hiking by 4.30 am (the final checkpoint opens at 5 am). The walk to Intipunku (the Sun Gate) takes approximately 2.5 hours meaning arrival time is not until approximately 7.30 am. Weather permitting, enjoy unforgettable views over the ‘Lost City of the Incas’ as you enter Machu Picchu through the Sungate.

Route 2: Inca Quarry Trail
Depending on weather conditions, take a bus at 5.30 am along the winding road to Machu Picchu (30 minutes). At Machu Picchu, join up with the travellers in your group who took the train. If skies are clear, enjoy a spectacular views over the ancient city from the Sun Gate, before going on a guided walk around the ruins.

Route 3: Train
In the morning, usually between 5.30 and 6.30 am, we take one of the first buses up to Machu Picchu. The city was built around 1440 AD as a country retreat for Inca nobility, but there’s evidence that the land had been a sacred Incan site for much longer. Take a guided tour around the ruins of temples, palaces and living quarters, and enjoy some free time afterwards to wander around on your own before heading to Ollantaytambo for the night.

Visiting Machu Picchu: According to Machu Picchu visiting regulations, all visitors must follow a pre-determined route within the site. This route must be followed in one direction only and once the guided visit commences exiting and re-entering the site is not permitted. Once the guided visit concludes, visitors must exit the site and personal exploration of Machu Picchu is not permitted.

Special Information Sunrise at Machu Picchu: Inca Trail trekkers: Due to safety reasons the final checkpoint for all trekkers does not open until 5am therefore the estimated arrival time to Machu Picchu Sungate is approximately 7.30am.
Quarry trekkers and Train travellers: The first bus from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu departs at 5.30am. The estimated arrival time is between 6-6.30am
The sun rises at Machu Picchu at approximately 5.30am, therefore it's not possible to be there in time for sunrise.

Wayna Picchu: Due to the internal safety policy, our leaders are specifically prohibited from recommending or assisting with booking trips to the mountaintop ruins of Wayna Picchu.

Sonderkonditionen

Inka Trail / Inca Quarry Trail
Seit 2004 ist die Zahl der Teilnehmer, die pro Tag zum Inka Trail aufbrechen dürfen, begrenzt. Dadurch sollen der Erhalt des Weges garantiert und die Umweltprobleme verringert werden. Da die erforderlichen Genehmigungen für den Inka Trail Trek oftmals schon Monate im Voraus ausgebucht sind, empfiehlt sich eine frühzeitige Buchung. Der Inka Trail Trek gilt als mittelmäßig schwer und ist in der Regel von jedem zu schaffen, der über eine durchschnittliche Fitness verfügt.

Sollten die Permits für Ihren gewünschten Reisetermin bereits vergriffen sein, hast du die Möglichkeit, alternativ den Inca Quarry Trail zu wandern. Abseits der touristischen Pfade und inmitten beeindruckender Landschaften führt die Route entlang kleinerer archäologischer Stätten. Auch zwei Dörfer liegen am Weg, deren Besuch das harte Leben in den Anden verdeutlicht. Die gesamte Strecke des Treks umfasst etwa 26 km. Die maximale Höhe beträgt 4.450m. Für diesen Trek wird kein Permit benötigt.

Inka Trail im Februar
Der Inca Trail wird jedes Jahr im Februar für Säuberungs- und Instandhaltungsmaßnahmen geschlossen. Sollte der Trekkingteil Ihrer Tour in diesen Zeitraum fallen, wanderst du automatisch den Quarry Trail.

Sollte es nicht möglich sein, das Permit für den Inka Trail zu erhalten, bieten wir Ihnen folgende Alternativen an:
- anderer Reisetermin oder andere Tour
- Inca Quarry Trail mit Machu Picchu
- 2 Extratage in Cuzco, Zugfahrt nach Aguas Calientes mit einer weiteren Übernachtung und Besichtigung von Machu Picchu, bevor du nach Cusco zurückkehrst.

Reisepassdaten sind bei Buchung anzugeben: Geburtsdatum, Reisepassnummer, Ausstellungs-/Ablaufdatum, Name wie im Reisepass angegeben.

Hinweis Machu Picchu

Die peruanischen Behörden haben aufgrund der hohen Besucherzahlen neue Regularien für den Besuch in Machu Picchu ausgegeben: Besucher am Morgen haben bis 12 Uhr und Besucher am Nachmittag haben bis 16.30 Uhr Zeit, die Stätte zu besichtigen. Zusätzlich erfolgt die Besichtigung mit Guide entlang einer vorgegebenen Route. Ein Wiedereintritt und eigenständige Erkundungen sind nicht mehr möglich.

Flug über die Nazca Linien
Von vom Flughafen "Maria Reiche" in Nazca abgehenden Flügen über die Nazca-Linien wird derzeit grundsätzlich abgeraten. Der technische Zustand der dort eingesetzten Kleinflugzeuge, die Qualifikation der Piloten und die Einhaltung von Sicherheitsvorschriften entsprechen oft nicht europäischem Standard. Die Standards am Flughafen in Pisco, von wo ebenfalls Überflüge der Nazca Linien angeboten werden, sind nach derzeitigen Erkenntnissen besser.

Tourstil
Echtes Abenteuer zum super Preis für budgetbewusste Reisende! Ohne Extras, die du nicht haben möchtest! Einfache Unterkünfte und viel Zeit für individuelle bzw. optionale Aktivitäten. Dieser Reisestil ist gerade unter jüngeren Reisenden sehr beliebt. Bereise die entlegensten Orte dieser Welt sicher und unbeschwert in einer kleinen Gruppe und mit einem erfahrenen, einheimischen Guide. Das Reiseprogramm lässt viel Raum zur eigenen Gestaltung. So hast du unterwegs die Möglichkeit dir aus zahlreichen optionalen Aktivitäten je nach Interessen, Reisebudget und Schwierigkeitsgrad dein persönliches Programm zusammenstellen. Wer auf sein Budget achten muss, sich in einer einfachen Unterkunft wohlfühlt und auf Extras verzichten kann, ist mit diesem Tourstil bestens beraten. Weniger Inklusivleistungen, dafür mehr Zeit für eigene Interessen - und das zu einem unschlagbar günstigen Preis.

Als Transportmittel werden überwiegend öffentliche Verkehrsmittel, wie Regional- und Überlandbusse genutzt. Das schont nicht nur die Umwelt, sondern garantiert auch jede Menge Spaß und Kontakt mit den Einheimischen. Übernachtet wird in einfachen, sauberen Unterkünften wie Bed & Breakfast, Bungalows oder auch mal Hostels, auf vielen Touren auch bei einer Gastfamilie – eine Erfahrung, die unsere Reisenden besonderes schätzen.
