PANORAMIC PERU & THE AMAZING AMAZON

13 October 2017
for 17 days

Solent Events Tour – group size 15 max

Peru is alive with colour and passion, rich cultures and awesome sights such as the ‘lost city’ of Machu Picchu, Lima, Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Puno, Lake Titicaca & mixing with the locals! Is this your holiday of a lifetime?

Spot macaws in the jungle and caimans on the riverbanks, sail the waters of Lake Titicaca, delight in the smells of markets and explore ancient ruins. The first glimpse of Machu Picchu will leave you in awe! Whether you’re scanning the canopy for wildlife from the comfort of our intimate and exclusive G Lodge Amazon or following in the footsteps of the Incas, this fast-paced adventure provides a sweeping view of this diverse country!

Uncover the ancient mysteries of the Incas, explore the neighbourhoods of the people of Peru  and explore beautiful landscapes as we travel from spectacular scenery to more spectacular scenery.

Peru has some of the most unforgettable, intriguing sights in the world. The former Inca capital of Cusco, 1,150 feet above sea level is a place where there is definitely no rushing about. The Sacred Valley and the legendary Machu Picchu, a UNESCO and a new Seven Wonders of the World Heritage site, which we take a train and a bus to reach. Complimentary coca tea is readily available from local hotels to help acclimatization! Wander through vibrant Indian markets and grab a bargain bartering for local handcrafts before travelling to the city of Puno on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

A unique style of off the beaten track, face-to-face travel – the only way to really experience a destination & provide an authentic experience, instead of lavish hotels and expensive western-style meals! Please join us on this wonderful adventure!

A dizzying patchwork of snow-capped mountains, wild jungles, desert lagoons and cobbled colonial backstreets.
High plains filled with grazing alpacas, Lake Titicaca & islands of crisp blue.
From the tips of the Andes to the creeks of the Amazon, it’s packed with beautiful sights and legendary culture.
See Amazonian wildlife by canoe and colourful carnivals in Cusco.
As the swirling morning mist lifts from Machu Picchu, you’ll find yourself lost for words!

Immerse yourself in the Peruvian culture and mix with the locals!
