Both trips will blend comfort and luxury with authentic down-to-earth experiences that immerse you in the local culture. We seek to get you out of your comfort zone during the day, but provide exceptional accommodations for you to retreat to in the evening.
If you feel adventurous but want to know you will sleep well at night, join us. The activities scheduled on our trips offer a sustainable way to support indigenous cultures, women and organizations striving to preserve cultural heritage and traditional handmade artisan craft.
On this 13-day exploration of Peru, you will be immersed in a vibrant and rich culture, overflowing with brightly colored weavings and open-air markets. We will connect with local weavers in their homes and support non-profits that collaborate with local female artisans to promote their work. We will visit villages silhouetted by the jaw dropping Andes Mountains, tour colonial architecture in Lima, wander Incan and pre-Colombian ruins, and experience the natural beauty and wonder of Machu Picchu. There will be opportunities to shop, hike, weave, and explore the unique landscapes and cultural traditions of Peru.
We have carefully selected hotels for their charm, comfort and location. Reliable and comfortable transportation will be provided by a private van, in addition to 2 train trips to Machu Picchu, and 2 regional flights between Lima and Cusco. More Information!
