Program

DAY 1: SANTIAGO - ARICA

Take the flight from Santiago to Arica. Prepare for the delivery of motorcycles and documents. You will have a welcome dinner.

DAY 2: ARICA - AREQUIPA

Arequipa is known as the White City, due to its beautiful white walls made of ashlar, a volcanic stone. Arequipa is located at the foot of the Chachani, Misti, and Pichu Pichu volcanos. The UNESCO declared the center of the town as a Cultural Heritage in the year 2000. This town is known for its temples, houses from the time of colonization, the Santa Catalina Monastery, and a miniature Spaniard town with beautiful stone alleys. The Arequipa cuisine is the perfect match for a lovely evening.

DAY 3: AREQUIPA - CUSCO

You continue your journey to Cusco, known for its Town Square, cathedral, churches, monasteries, and history. Here, you will take a private tour by bus with a Peruvian guide. It is recommended to chew coca leaves or to drink coca mate to relieve altitude sickness and headaches. The city of Cusco, the ancient capital of the Incan Empire, was placed on the World Cultural Heritage List by UNESCO in 1983, and is without a doubt one of the most important destinations in Peru.

There are Incan buildings waiting for you to discover them among its cobble-stoned streets, ones like the Koricancha and the palace of Inca Roca as well as Andean Baroque structures from the Colonial Period like the Cathedral and the Church of the Company of Christ. In addition, you can visit the picturesque neighborhood of San Blas where the best artisans in the department have set up their workshops.

This magical city also has an exciting nightlife with cafes, restaurants, and bars for all tastes. Just ten minutes away from the city, there are the massive walls of the Sacsayhuamán fortress, and a few kilometers from there, you find the archeological sites of Qenko, Pukapukara, and Tambomachay, Incan buildings constructed completely with stone.

DAY 4: CUSCO - VALLE SAGRADO

Have a visit to the Sacred Valley and Maras; also called Salinas de Maras. These salt-mines have been used since the Tahuantinsuyo. The people channel the salt water that bubbles to the surface from a spring called Qoripujio towards men-made wells. From the exposure to the sun, the water evaporates and the salt remains on the surface to be transported later to the market to be sold. The view of this complex of nearly 3000 wells is spectacular. The local people happily demonstrate the ancient techniques to visitors, even allowing them to participate in them.

DAY 5: VALLE SAGRADO - MACHU PICCHU - VALLE SAGRADO

Early in the morning, you will take the train to Machu Picchu, where you will spend the rest of the day. The enigmatic complex of Machu Picchu, the most important and beautiful legacy of the ancient Peruvian, is part of the Historic Sanctuary of the same name, which is also one of the few places in the Americas placed on both the World Cultural and Natural Heritage Lists by UNESCO. It is located high on top of a mountain and complements the exuberant nature that surrounds it, creating a one of a kind place in the world.

DAY 6: CUSCO - PUNO

The road to Puno is asphalt and it is in good conditions; however, one must be careful with dogs and other animals that may cross the road. This town and many others live of farming and cattle raising. You continue the journey from Cusco to Puno, where you will take a private boat with a Peruvian guide to visit the Uros Floating Islands. Today, the city of Puno (3,287 masl), which lies on the shores of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world, is the folklore capital of Peru and the site of the Feast of the Virgen de la Candelaria.

In the outskirts, you can visit the spectacular Chullpas de Sillustani, a complex of impressive burial towers built by the Kollas, Juli, famous for its beautiful Colonial churches, Lampa with its vice royal church built between 1675 and 1685, Llachón, a community that still maintains its centuries old customs and cultural expressions, and Pucará, known for its pre-Inca pottery and for the “toritos de Pucará” that the artisans of today create from clay.
