The highlights of our Peru vacation Package are:

The Colca Canyon, the second world’s deepest canyon! And a wonderful chance to sightsee real Condors flying very close to you.

Have you ever wondered what is to live, surrounded by volcanos? Arequipa known as the “White City” because of the predominance of volcanic rock when the city was first constructed, will offer you this chance.

We will be hopping on a boat to visit the originally man-made islands of Los Uros, right in the middle of Lake Titicaca Peru, the highest navigable lake in the world.

Traveling into the past by setting foot on the historically famous city of Cusco, the ancient capital city of the Inka Empire and its surroundings.

The magnificent scenery of the Sacred Valley of the Incas will open up before your eyes, and you will live through the unique experiences of climbing up Inca stairs to what in the old days was an important military and religious Inca control watchtower called Ollantaytambo and exploring the colorful artisan market in the town of Pisac.

Leading us to the well preserved along the centuries, the impressive and awe-inspiring citadel of Machu Picchu, a formidable architectural complex designed to harbor life within its walls strategically hidden from easy sight.

Do not miss this Amazing Peru Vacation Package carefully designed for travelers staying around 2 weeks in Peru!

Colca Canyon Tour (3800m / 12464ft) – Trip to the Colca Valley:

Situated about 160 km northeast of Arequipa, the Colca Canyon is the second deepest canyon in the world.  At 4,150 meters deep, it is more than twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in Colorado US. The name Colca comes from the words Collaguas and Cabanas, two ethnic groups that lived along the Colca River.  In addition to its grandeur, the Colca Canyon is a fantastic place to witness closely the majestic flight of the Condor (only found in the Andes).  It’s a great opportunity to take close-ups of this spectacular vulture.

On our way to the Colca Valley (3,800m/12,464ft), we will pass through the Aguada Blanca National Reserve where we will stare at long-neck fine vicuñas running freely on the ichu (Andean thick grass), as well as other camelids and mammals such as the Guanaco, Alpaca, Taruca, Vizcacha, Colocolo (Andean mountain cat) and the Andean fox. On the “Mirador de los Andes” viewpoint you can admire the Andean landscape, here you will also notice many piles of rocks carefully placed separate one from the other, made by the people for the Apus (Sacred Mountains) as they are meant to represent their wishes in an offering. As you can see you can capture life in the highlands in a moment and why not! In a photo as well.

At your arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel/lodge.

Evening free.

Overnight in Colca Valley.

An exciting drive on the left side of Colca Canyon will finally lead us to the “Cruz del Condor” viewpoint to admire the majestic flight of the Andean Condors, as they fiercely fly into the appealing depth of the canyon pulling our eyes down, allowing us to live an exciting experience! And also a great chance to take wonderful close-ups.

Then, we will continue our Perú tour, heading by land to Puno located in the southeastern part of Perú (3800m/12464ft) by land.

To continue exploring more about the civilizations in the highlands, we will visit the pre-Inca cemetery of Sillustani, the “chullpas” vertical burial structures which contained the mummified corpses of Collas or Aymara people, in a fetal position, facing east according to the tradition, at the shores of the superb and peaceful lake Umayo.

In the present islanders continue this lifestyle complemented by modern technology. Then we will continue our tour traveling by boat for 3 hours to the Amantani Island inhabited by Quechua-speaking natives.
