Contiki Peruvian Highlights Itinerary
+

Day 1 - Lima

A new day, a new country – let’s do this! Steeped in Spanish colonialism yet buzzing with modern metro vibes, Lima is sure to ignite your love for Peru. Spend your morning marvelling at lavishly decorated churches and an underground tunnel cemetery overflowing with bones or catacombs, then hit the Barranco district this afternoon to get a feel for its bohemian ambiance. A stroll over the Bridge of Sighs is also a must. And of course no trip to Lima is complete without devouring at least one portion of ceviche – it’s a pretty massive deal in the city. Round off the day watching the sun set over the Pacific, most likely with a pisco sour in hand…

Day 2 - Lima to Jungle Lodge via Puerto Maldonado 

A quick tour of Puerto Maldonado will reveal colourful fruit stalls, open-air markets, and locals going about their day.

Located in a then luscious rainforest and made from wood and clay, the Jungle Lodge's open walls leave you sleeping virtually amongst the rainforest! After you settle in, get a different take on the jungle as you take a hike to the canopy tower. After climbing the 100ft of stairs you will be provided with a birds-eye view of the rainforest!

Day 3 - Jungle Lodge 

With another day at the jungle lodge, keep your eyes peeled for a wildlife like the giant otter, monkeys, tropical birds, bromeliads and other jungle life, this is the ultimate way to see the jungle.

Day 4 - Jungle Lodge to Cusco 

Spend today exploring the beautiful city of Cusco - wander the main plaza, visit the Tread Right support weaving centre or feed your sweet tooth with a visit to the chocolate museum. 

Day 5 - Cusco to Sacred Valley 

An iconic symbol of Peru, you'll be stopping off at a llama farm to show some love to these furry favourites up close. Then stop off to witness the ancient Incan art of weaving in practice by a group of talented local artisans. Throughout the journey, play close attention to your surrounds – there’s the chance to spot the Incan farming technique of terracing, as well as the ‘salineras’ (salt mines). Your explorations of the Sacred Valley will begin with a guided tour of the Pisac and Ollantaytambo ruins

Day 6 - Sacred Valley to Aguas Calientes or Inca Trail Trek

Can you feel the excitement mounting? Yep – those are pretty much the feels when Machu Picchu is quite literally on the horizon. This afternoon we’ll hop on the train to Aguas Calientes, a cute town in its own right complete with roaring river, quaint bridges and local haunts, but most famously known as the gateway town to Machu Picchu. We’ll meet up with those who opted for the one day trek, and basically spend the evening hyping each other up for what’s to come tomorrow.

Day 7 - Machu Picchu to Cusco

Built around 1450 at the height of the Incan Empire, Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the seven wonders of the new world. 

Day 8 - Depart Cusco

It’s time to say adios to your travel buddies as your trip ends after breakfast.
