Erlebe auf dieser Peru Entdeckungsreise von den Anden zur Pazifikküste die Welt der Inka mit ihren Mythen und antiken Ruinenstädten. Auf dieser abwechslungsreichen Peru Rundreise besuchst du die alte Inkahauptstadt Cusco und erkundest die beeindruckenden Ruinen der sagenumwobenen Inkastadt Machu Picchu. Genieße die Landschaft rund um den berühmten Titicacasees. Spektakuläre Ausblicke erwarten dich am imposanten Colca Canyon, eine der tiefsten Schluchten der Welt. Mit etwas Glück kannst du hier einen Blick auf den majestätischen Kondor werfen, bevor dich die mysteriösen Linien von Nazca in ihren Bann ziehen. Weiter geht's zur Oase Huacachina. Klettere auf die imposanten Sanddünen und hol dir einen Adrenalinkick beim Sandboarding. Eine Bootsfahrt führt dich zu den Ballestas Inseln, dem "Klein-Galapagos", wo du mit etwas Glück Robben, Delfine und Seevögel beobachten kannst.

1. Tag: Lima
In der einstigen Stadt der Könige beginnt unsere Reise.

2. Tag: Paracas
Wir besuchen die wunderschöne Küstenstadt.

3. Tag: Nazca und Ballestas-Inseln
Fliege über die gigantischen Nazca-Linien, die wahrscheinlich von drei verschiedenen Volksgruppen in den Boden gearbeitet wurden. In der Huacachina Oase kannst du Sandboarden, während du in Pisco, das Nationalgetränk probieren kannst. Ein Bootsausflug führt uns hinaus auf die Ballestas-Inseln, die wegen ihrer reichen Population an Seelöwen, Tölpeln und anderen Seevögeln auch "Klein-Galapagos" genannt werden.

4.-6. Tag: Arequipa & Colca Cañon
Arequipas wunderschöne koloniale Altstadt wird durch die prächtige Kathedrale am Hauptplatz geprägt. Schlendere durch die kleinen Gassen und erkunde auch das Santa Catalina Kloster, das schon fast selbst eine Stadt ist. Hoch hinaus geht es dann an den Rand einer der tiefsten Schluchten der Welt - so halten wir am Cruz del Condor auf fast 5.000m Ausschau nach dem König der Anden bei seinem majestätischen Flug.

7.-8. Tag: Puno & Titicaca See
Im Bus geht es weiter an den Titicacasee. In der Sagenwelt der Inka erreichten durch ihn die Sonnengötter die Erde. Bei einem Tagesausflug erhalten wir einen Einblick in die lokale Kultur und Traditionen.

9.-12. Tag: Cusco, Heiliges Tal der Inka & Machu Picchu
Cusco bedeutet "Nabel der Welt" und war das Zentrum der Inkawelt. Von hier erkunden wir das fruchtbare Heilige Tal der Inkas und besuchen die legendäre Inkastadt Machu Picchu. Dabei hast du die Wahl entweder gemütlich mit dem Zug die Reise zur antiken Ruinenstätte zu starten oder entlang des letzten Abschnitts des Inkatrails nach Machu Picchu zu wandern. Entscheide dich nur vorab - auch hier sind die Plätze begrenzt!

Rückkehr in die Hauptstadt, wo unserer Abenteuer begann.

Day 1 - Arrive Lima
Lima was founded by the Spanish Conquistador Francisco Pizarro in 1535 after he eradicated the Incas and made the city his capital. Lima has many fine colonial buildings and some of the best museums in South America including the Gold Museum, Museum of the Inquisition and the Catacombs below the San Francisco Church. Peru's capital has much to offer and many of the sights, including the city's two main squares the Plaza de Armas and Plaza San Martin, boast some fantastic sightseeing opportunities. The Plaza de Armas houses the Cathedral, Municipal Palace and Presidential Palace where the changing of the guard can be seen every day at 12 noon. There are also many markets in Lima, possibly the best being in the central district.

Optional Excursions
Museum Inquisition – free • Monastery and Catacombs – US$3 guided tour • Plaza San Martin, one of the largest and most impressive squares

Accommodation
1 night in a hotel at Hotel Santa Cruz or similar

Day 2 - Paracas
Take the tourist bus to Paracas travelling for around three and a half hours. Like Lima, it is another coastal town and tonight you can enjoy dinner at one of the many shore-front restaurants.

Accommodation
1 night in a hotel.

Meals
1 Breakfast

Day 3 - Nazca
A visit to Paracas would not be complete without visiting the Ballestas Islands on a two hour boat trip. The islands, sometimes known as the ‘poor man's Galapagos', are teeming with over 150 species of bird life (including penguins, cormorants, boobies and pelicans). They are also home to thousands of sea lions and boast some amazing rock formations. Although it is not possible to set foot on the islands, you will experience the magnificent sight and sounds of the vast array of wildlife and maybe even spot seals and dolphins playing around the boat. Our boat trip also takes us past the mysterious Candelabra figure etched on the side of a mountain. Best viewed from the sea, many believe the Candelabra is linked to the Nazca Lines.

Leave Paracas behind and journey towards Nazca in a private vehicle. On the way, the group will stop at the Huacachina Oasis, deep in the Huacachina Desert. Here you have the chance to get your adrenaline-pumping with the optional excursions available. Try sand-boarding down the vast dunes or cruise over them in a dune-buggy. After you have explored the desert, continue driving to Nazca.

Visit Huacachina Oasis, A boat tour of the Ballestas Islands

Optional Excursions
Scenic flight over Nazca Lines – US$100 + S/25 tax • Planetarium show & lecture – US$8 • Chauchilla Cemetery – US$13 (entry & guide) • Cantalloc underground aqueducts - US$8 • Cahuachi pyramids – US$15 (entry only)

Day 4 - Overnight Bus to Arequipa
Today you have the option to visit the Nazca Lines. These strange parallel lines and geometrical figures are etched into the desert floor. Although there is a viewing tower, these strange designs can only be fully appreciated from the air. You can take a fascinating flight over the lines and shapes, which include a monkey, hummingbird, condor, spider and even a spaceman. The designs are thought to have been made by three different groups of people: the Paracas (900 -200 BC), the Nazca (200BC -600AD) and then new migrants from Ayacucho around 630AD. You can also take optional tours to visit the underground aqueducts, gold mines and ceramic shops.

Pack up on snacks as we will take taxis to the bus station and embark on an overnight bus journey to Arequipa.

Accommodation

Day 5 - Arequipa
A beautiful colonial city, Arequipa has a lovely central plaza dominated by a large cathedral. There are some fantastic restaurants in Arequipa and it is possible to enjoy many Peruvian delicacies here. Besides the stimulating architecture, one of the the main attractions is the Santa Catalina Convent, which is almost a city in itself with its maze of cobbled streets, cloisters and decorative buildings. Don't miss the nuns' café for excellent freshly baked treats! Another popular attraction is the acclaimed Museo Santuarios Andinos which houses many well preserved mummies. The most famous of the mummies is Juanita, a young Inca maiden who was sacrificed around the year AD 1450 atop the Nevado Ampato volcano to appease the gods and ask for a good harvest. Juanita was sacrificed then frozen by snowfall at the top of the mountain, hence her nickname ‘ice princess’. She was rediscovered in the 1990s when ash from the volcano melted the snow around her.

After checking in to our hotel in the town of Coporaque, we can visit Cruz del Condor (Condor's Cross) lookout point in search of the giant condors soaring out of the canyon on thermal currents.

Day 10 - Sacred Valley of the Incas & Ollantaytambo
A full day is spent visiting the Sacred Valley of the Incas. At an altitude of 3800m we take slow walks that take up to an hour, around each of the ruins in order to manage any effects the high altitude may have. Firstly we visit the Pisac ruins, perched on a hilltop with incredible views of the surrounding mountains. We then go down to the famous traditional market of the same name, which is full of colour and atmosphere. A great place for souvenirs! After lunch, we continue along the valley to the temple/fortress of Ollantaytambo with its enormous Inca terracing constructed on the side of a steep mountain.

Tonight you will stay in the town of Ollantaytambo.

Day 11 - Machu Picchu & Cusco
The Peruvian Culture Directorate announced that from the 1st July 2017, entry to Machu Picchu will be split into a morning and afternoon shift in order to ease the flow of tourists to the site and aid conservation and preservation of the citadel. As a result, if you are scheduled to take the train to Machu Picchu after this date, your guided tour will take place in the afternoon shift.
Alternate options for getting to Machu Picchu:

Taking the train:
Waking early in Ollantaytambo you will take the train to Aguas Calientes, arriving at 10am. You will have time to get some food before entering Machu Picchu at approximately midday. Enjoy a guided tour around the site before getting the train back to Ollantaytambo and arriving back in Cusco at approximately 10pm.
One day hike:Waking early in Ollantaytambo you will take the train to to Km104 (2100m) where you will start the trek heading towards the ruins of Chachabamba. From here you will follow the Inca Trail to the foot of the Wiñay-Wayna ruins (2700m), hiking until you reach Sun Gate and Machu Picchu in the late afternoon. Enjoy a guided tour around the site before getting the train back to Ollantaytambo and arriving back in Cusco at approximately 10pm.
The lost city of Machu Picchu (Old Mountain) was originally completely self -contained, surrounded by agricultural terraces sufficient to feed the population, and watered by natural springs. Located high above the fast flowing Urubamba River, the cloud shrouded ruins have palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms and some 150 houses, all in a remarkable state of preservation that will simply take your breath away. The ruins were only discovered by the outside world in 1911, when American explorer Hiram Bingham found them while looking for another “lost city” called Vilcabamba. Due to their isolation many of the buildings are still quite intact and you can't help but admire Huayna Picchu (Young Mountain), which towers above the ruins.

Please note: The one day hike needs to be booked at least three months in advance with your Adventure Specialist. It is a long day and can be quite challenging. Read more about it here.
