+ TOUR OVERVIEW

Welcome to our Peaks of Peru tour! An exhilarating 11-days, 10-nights through Cusco, Rainbow Mountain, Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Aguas Calientes, Machu Picchu and of course, Lima.

Peru is bordered by Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile and the Pacific Ocean, making it a megadiverse country when it comes to wildlife and landscapes. Peru is also home to the oldest civilization in the Americas, the Norte Chico tribe, which dates as far back as 3200 BC and is one of the five founding civilizations of the Inca Empire.

Beyond that, Peru is filled with habitats ranging from the arid plains of the Pacific coastal region in the west to the peaks of the Andes mountains vertically extending from the north to the southeast of the country to the tropical Amazon Basin rainforest in the east with the Amazon river.

You can expect a high degree of physical fitness required with this tour as major elevation (as much as 17,000 feet) comes into play during the Rainbow Mountain hike. Although you will be flying into Cusco to acclimate, there is a degree of difficulty with adjusting to elevation. Water and hydration will be key factors on this tour, as this is arguably one of the biggest, baddest and most intense tours VoyEdge RX has put forth.

All pick ups, drop offs, breakfasts, four lunches, seven dinners, transportation, accommodation and activities (See below) are included in this tour, as well as a regional flight from Cusco to Lima.

Keep reading on, but this is one epic tour you won't want to miss!

Oh, and did we mention you'll be visiting Machu Picchu? #WhereToNext, right?
