If arriving early, you can also take in scenic Parque del Amor (Love Park) in Miraflores for views of Lima's gorgeous coastline.

Begin your jungle adventure with a flight to Puerto Maldonado. Meet the lodge staff on arrival, transfer to the port, and board a motorized canoe to travel by river to your lodge.

Spend the rest of the afternoon acclimating to the rainforest environment. Your naturalist guide will tell you more about what to expect during your stay.

Your excursions today will allow you to glimpse the incredible biodiversity of Peru’s rainforest. Visit an oxbow lake to observe hoatzin birds, squirrel monkeys, and giant otters. Learn about medicinal plants and how Amazonian communities use them. At night, join your guide to spot critters that only come out after dark.

Continue your exploration of the rainforest with a visit to a clay lick where parrots and macaws gather. Explore a trail that winds through giant ceiba trees reaching 150 meters tall. Travel by boat to an organic farm where locals cultivate a range of fruits and vegetables, some of which will be strange and others familiar.

After a final breakfast at the lodge, board a boat for the journey back to Puerto Maldonado and transfer to the airport for your flight to Cusco.

Upon arrival at the Cusco airport, meet our representative and transfer to your hotel. You have the rest of the afternoon to explore the city. Remember to take it easy on your first day at altitude.

Meet your guide for a trip to the Sacred Valley. Your private tour visits the concentric circle terraces of Moray which descend nearly 500 feet into the earth, the multi-hued salt pans of Maras, and the monolithic fortress ruins of Ollantaytambo. At the end of the tour, catch the train to Aguas Calientes, base town for Machu Picchu.

Wake up early and meet your guide for a memorable walk through the “lost city of the Incas” and let yourself be swept away by the magical landscape that surrounds this important ruin. Finish up with last photos and then return to Aguas Calientes town for the return trip to Cusco.

Follow this with a visit to a local island. Depending on your preference, you can choose from a unique homestay experience in Amantani or a visit to the private island - Isla Suasi.
