Cosmopolitan Lima welcomes you on arrival, but this is only the start of your exciting exploration of Peru. From Lima to Machu Picchu to the depths of the Amazon Rainforest, The Evolved Traveler’s 16-day, “Peruvian Explorer” journey will take you to some of the country’s most iconic and varied locales.

Destination Overview

After your time in lively Lima, head south to Arequipa, a warm and welcoming, colonial town that is the gateway to Southern Peru. Arequipa opens your journey to some of Peru’s most diverse and awe-inspiring landscapes, including snow-covered volcanoes, quaint villages, and desolate plateaus populated with guanaco, alpaca, and vicuna. Continue to Puno and Lake Titicaca, discovering Condor Cross Lookout, the best place to see the Andean Condor in flight, and Colca Canyon, Peru’s version of the Grand Canyon en route.

Spend two days learning about this enigmatic and mysterious Lake Titicaca and its locals—a people who live on reed towns that float freely through the lake maintaining a lifestyle that hasn’t changed for centuries.

Next, head north on the luxurious Andean Explorer train to explore colonial Cusco and majestic Machu Picchu before finally heading deep into the Amazon Rainforest for a 3-night stay. Here, one of the world’s richest, biodiverse regions will reveal itself to you with river excursions, canopy walks, and visits to local farms.

Heading back to Lima you’ll soon see this wasn’t just an exploration, it was the trip of a lifetime!
