ITINERARY

Day 1 Lima / Arrival Day

Hola! Welcome to Peru. We have no activities planned today until our Group Meeting at 2PM in the hotel lobby. You’ll meet your Brand Ambassador and Host Tanya, Alejandrina your Group Leader, and fellow travellers to discuss our adventure. From there we’ll walk through gorgeous Miraflores and Barranco with a stop at “Miss Cupcakes” en route. The bakery’s lesbian owners serve up Lima’s sweetest bites, and are passionate supporters of campaigns for autism and same-sex civil unions. You will also visit MATE, the Mario Testino Museum. This non-profit museum promotes Peruvian artists and culture throughout the world, while introducing Lima to the best international contemporary art and photography. Tonight’s Welcome Dinner is at Kjolle. This restaurant is the vision of Pía León, one of Latin America’s Best Female Chefs.

Day 2 Puerto Maldonado / The Amazon

Our day begins with a two-hour flight to Puerto Maldonado, a gateway to the Amazon Jungle. From here we’ll climb aboard a motorized canoe and ride the Madre de Dios River to our hacienda for the next two nights. After lunch we’ll take a walk through the property’s nature trails, where you’ll learn about the rainforest, its transformation by human beings, and its relevance to the world. At dusk we’ll climb aboard the canoe again for a twilight river safari celebrating the river’s nocturnal creatures. Our day ends with cocktails and snacks around the bonfire before dinner in the grand dining room. 

Day 3 Puerto Maldonado / The Amazon

After a hearty buffet breakfast we’ll trek into Tambopata National Reserve and learn what makes Madre de Dios the biodiversity capital of Peru. Look for the endangered giant river otter, blue and yellow macaw, red howler monkey and black caiman. Lunch awaits back at the lodge, then it’s off to the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway. Climb a 91ft/28m tower into the canopy before you cross seven hanging bridges. Enjoy breathtaking vistas and photograph white-throated toucans, three-toed sloths, woodpeckers, trogons and squirrel monkeys. A “Rainforest at Night” safari wraps up the day of adventure, with dinner served at the lodge.

Day 4 Cusco

Today we return to Puerto Maldonado by canoe then board a flight to Cusco, South America’s oldest continually-inhabited city. To adjust to the altitude (3,400m/11,200m), we’ll take it easy this afternoon, with a short orientation walk and a visit to San Pedro market. This evening you’re free to explore the town, enjoy the hotel’s gorgeous amenities, or join the group for an optional dinner.

Day 5 Sacred Valley

This morning we’ll head to the Sacred Valley on the outskirts of town. We’ll visit a farming community en route before we arrive in Ollantaytambo. This geometrically perfect town is a magnificent example of the Inca’s urban planning. Take time to explore, and don’t miss the fortress above town. The entrance fee is included and it’s worth the visit. Tonight we’ll enjoy an incredible included meal. Please note: we’ll safely leave the bulk of our luggage here for the next few days, until we return from Machu Picchu. Out Adventures will provide you with compact duffel bags.

Day 6 Aguas Calientes

Our day begins by riding the rails aboard the charming 360​° Machu Picchu Train through the Urubamba Valley. Glass panels in the ceiling let you soak in the views en route to Aguas Calientes, the closest civilization to Machu Picchu. Rest up this afternoon, as we have a full-day visit to the ancient civilization tomorrow, or treat yourself to a sneak peak tonight. A group dinner is included at the hotel.

Day 7 Machu Picchu / Cusco

This morning we’ll depart around 5:30AM and make our way along the notoriously windy road to Machu Picchu. Upon arrival a guide will introduce us to the ancient ruins. Looking down at the site against a backdrop of forested mountains is breathtaking: no matter how many photos you’ve seen, you can’t prepare yourself for the beauty before you. Enjoy an optional lunch before we board the train and return to Cusco. Enjoy the luxe accommodations at the hotel tonight.

Day 8 Cusco

Today we have a Workshop on Colonial Cuzqueña Glassed Ceramics, a traditional artform. You’ll lathe, enamel and paint traditional toritos and caballitos (little bulls and horses) of Pucará during a 3-hour experience. The rest of the day is at your leisure, until our delicious Farewell Dinner at MAP Cafe, located on the patio of the Pre-Columbian Museum of Art.

Day 9 Departure

There are no activities planned today, so you are free to explore the city and depart at your leisure.
