Day on your own.
Peru’s capital is beautifully located on the Pacific Ocean and has a population of almost 10 million. A third of Peru’s total population. Lima was the most important city during colonial times by the Spaniards conquerors in South America until their reign ended in the mid-1800s. Lima’s old town is also called “La Ciudad de los Reyes” ( “City of Kings”), is on UNESCO’s list of World Cultural Heritage for its buildings that date back to the Spaniards colonial time. It was the Spanish conqueror Francisco Pizarro, who founded the city in 1535 with the center in Plaza de Armas, which still exists to this day.
Lima offers plenty of culture and history, beautiful architecture, museums with vibrant night life.
We recommend to experience Lima on foot. Go for example to Barranco, artists and authors neighborhood filled with charming and colorful houses and cafes. Miraflores, is another popular neighborhood, there are fantastic views facing the Pacific Ocean. In Lima there is always a pleasant temperature, the city’s location facing the Pacific explains the always slightly humid air.
If you like culture and history, you can explore Lima’s old town. Start at the city’s main square, Plaza de Armas, where the many buildings were restored after the great earthquake of 1746. Only bronze fountain in the center of the square, from 1651, survived the earthquake.
A few minutes’ walk from the Plaza de Armas is Palacio Torre Tagle, which today is home to the Peruvian Foreign Ministry. This building with its balconies with incredible woodcarvings is an example of the find existing colonial architecture.
Also visit the Gold Museum, Museo del Oro del Peru y Armas del Mundo, where you can find an impressive collection of Inca gold and silver, one of the world’s largest weapons collections and handicrafts like pottery and weaving. The large San Francisco monastery is also worth a visit, and another example of the beautiful colonial architecture. The monastery contains many beautiful elements, an impressive library of more than 25,000 works, and one Peruvian interpretation of Da Vinci’s painting “The Last Supper” and the catacombs with the bones of about 30,000 people.
Do not miss the superb cuisine that for the fifth consecutive year has ensured Peru position as South America’s best culinary destination (World Travel Awards). Eat for example. at Bar Cordano, an old and traditional restaurant that has hosted almost all Peruvian presidents since 1905 – the restaurant is located opposite the presidential palace. Another great place with a great view is the restaurant La Rosa Nautica, located on a pier off the coast, or eat perhaps the city’s best fish dishes at the chic restaurant La Mar (a personal favorite of us) by the internationally renowned celebrity chef, Gaston Acurio. Remember to book a table.
Today, the only activity on your holidays is a bus ride along the Pacific coast from Lima to Paracas. The bus drive usually begins travels just over lunchtime, but it can vary. Sit back, we ensure comfortable seats with a good safe bus company, and enjoy the journey that offers exciting dry, desert-like landscape together with small villages on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. many small towns. The journey takes 3 ½ hour or so upon arrival to Paracas late in the afternoon. There is time to check quietly into the hotel and then walk around the small port, Paracas, before a delicious evening meal. Transfer to and from the bus station in both Lima and Paracas.
Meals Included: 1 breakfast
Just after breakfast you will be picked up at your hotel and drive down to the harbor where your boat is waiting. Today we head first and foremost to the Ballestas Islands, also called “Mini Galapagos”.
Be sure to bring sunscreen and be prepared for wind, solar and water splashes. Wearing a sun-hat is also recommended, as you may run the risk of being hit by bird droppings poop. Bring your picnic basket. a small telescope.
On the way out to the islands you will see a giant 150-meter high Geoglyph that looks like a three-arm candlestick drawn into the side of a hill, no one knows who made it, when or what the purpose was, but there are several theories. One theory links it to the Nazca culture. Another theory is that the big Geoglyph was to guide the sailors navigation in earlier times, and that it should be based on the Southern Cross constellation.
You’ll then sail around the Ballestas Islands and enjoy caves and natural arches, and come very close to a unique animal and bird life. Ballestas Islands is a Nature Reserve, which extends about 15 km south of Pisco and and is home to one of the largest sea lion colonies in the world. You will also see, what historically has been the largest producer of guano (bird manure that was previously exported to many parts of the world including Europe, under the name “chile saltpeter”). You will also see Peruvian boobies and pelicans that live in large colonies of up to several thousand birds. Another important inhabitant of the Ballestas Islands is Humboldt penguin, named after the German scientist who officially discovered them. If you are lucky, you may even see dolphins swimming along the boat
The boat trip to the Ballestas Islands takes about 2 hours. Back in Paracas you can relax at the hotel and pack your bags again before pickup.
Today’s next point is: visit to a winery in Pisco, producers one of Peru’s largest drink, call for the city: “pisco”. Pisco is distilled alcohol made from grapes, a strong drink that is often mixed with lime juice, egg white and sugar, a drink called “pisco sour”. In the winery you will get an insight into how pisco is produced, plus pisco-tasting.
With a slightly higher alcohol in our bodies from earlier today, we continue to Huacachina, a small oasis situated idyllically around a small natural lake in the Peruvian desert. Take a walk in the surrounding sand dunes or jump into an adrenaline-intoxicating drive in the buggy up and down the dunes and try the “sand surfboard” down the dunes. It’s a really fun experience that gives good thrills, lots of wind in your hair but also quiet moments, where you can let yourself be fascinated by the beautiful rolling sand dunes, wind put imprints in the patterns and lines as far as the eye can see.
(The drive with buggy is not included in the price, if you are interested, please let us know).
Late afternoon / early evening bus ride to Nazca. Transfer from the bus station to the hotel.
Overnight in Nazca.
Meals Included: 1 breakfast
After a nice breakfast, you will be picked up from your hotel and drive to the small airport of Nazca where your flight over the Nazca lines take place. The Lines are a mystery and their purpose is still to be clarified. The lines, called geoglyphs, was made by the Nazca people between the years 200 BC to the 650 AD. The lines that came on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1994, are spreading over a large area of more than 500 km2 in the Nazca desert, where it hardly ever rains. This explain how the lines have survived for centuries until today. There are more than 70 human and animal figures, and about 10,000 lines across the desert. Most of the geoglyphs are visible only from the air, a clear example is the hummingbird that measures 97 meters – which raises the question of what the purpose was behind the Nazca Lines. There are various theories that attempt to explain the background, some of these are that the lines was an astronomical calendar or had a religious spiritual function, while other, more dubious theories argue that the lines served to communicate with aliens . Nazca lines is therefore still an archaeological mystery that is a must on your Holidays in Peru. The flight over the Nazca lines takes about 30 minutes and is a great experience not to be missed.
Once you’re on your feet again, it’s on to Chauchilla. Just 30 km. from Nazca, lies the cemetery of Chauchilla. The cemetery, where thousands of graves, houses the mummified dead from Chincha people, who lived in this desert in the period 1000 to 1400. Twelve pits have been excavated and gives you a glimpse of Chincha culture’s great traditions and rituals.
After dinner continuing on with your holidays, you’ll take the night bus to Arequipa.
Overnight in a bus.
Meals Included: 1 breakfast
You arrive at Arequipa in the morning, and after being picked up at the bus terminal you’ll arrive at your hotel just in time for breakfast. The morning is at your own peace.
Walk around and enjoy the beautiful Arequipa, known for its architecturally beautiful buildings in colonial style, built in white volcanic stone ( “sillar”), which has given the nickname to the city as: “La Ciudad Blanca”, the White City. Arequipa is located 2,300 meters above sea level – relatively higher compared to Nazca, so you can gradually get used to the altitude before continue to Colca Canyon and later Lake Titicaca, located on top of the Andes at 3,800 meters height.
Arequipa lies below the snow-capped volcanoes Misti, Chachani and Pichu Pichu.
There is a lovely atmosphere in Arequipa, and it is worth just walking around the streets and alleys around the center and the Plaza de Armas, the central square. Santa Catalina Monastery from 1580 is a must-see. It consists of 100 rooms, three cloisters and a church. The large and well-maintained convent is like a city within a city where one can disappear back in time into another world. There is access to almost all the monastery’s places, and the many rooms (sleeping chambers, workroom, warehouses, kitchen, etc.), where the nuns have lived for centuries and had their daily work, giving a fascinating insight into monastic life. However, part of the convent is closed to the public, as today some 20 nuns still live and have their work in the Santa Catalina Monastery. Take your camera, because here you will spot one scene after another. Also, visit Arequipa big market, Mercado San Camilo. The ground floor is place to sell various items like vegetables, fruit, meat and local handicrafts, while the first floor offers rooms where you can buy freshly squeezed juices, a snack or even a meal. Order a glass of very cheap juice and sit down and just look at the people. It is a true attraction itself!
Other tours are optional like city tours, hikes to the Volcano Misti and mountain biking tours (not included in the price). At 18:30 there will be a briefing about the next Peru holidays tour the Colca canyon trip at yuor hotel.
Overnight in Arequipa.

After breakfast, your guide will pick you up for a drive further north Arequipa to Colca Canyon. This scenic drive travels through stunning views with wide open land and mountains. Herds of alpacas, llamas, Guanaco and vicuñas are visible in their natural habitat. There will be stop over in some mountain passes, where we will really feel the thin air layer, but it is a short stop and we will soon be heading down again to Chivay small town right in the heart of the Colca Valley
Finally we arrive to Colca Canyon. This impressive gorge is considered as one of the world’s deepest canyons- twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in North America. Many who travel to Peru come just to see the Colca Canyon, no matter what season you come to, the views are amazingly beautiful. The gorge follows Río Colca, Colca River with terraces that dates from the time before the Incas that are still in use today.
A delicious lunch is up next in Chivay. Chivay is a small town with a main plaza, short narrow streets and small market where the local sells rice, beans, alpaca meat, fruit and vegetables dressed in their colorful traditional clothing. If we are lucky, we can walk around Chivay before the big crowds of tourist arrive late in the afternoon. Many use Chivay as a starting point for adventure holidays in the Colca Canyon.
In the afternoon you’ll check into your hotel. Use the rest of the day to relax have a little walk out Chivay or visit Chivay’s hot, healing natural springs, “La Calera Hot Springs”. The pools offers beautiful views of the surrounding hillsides.
Today activity is a drive up to the Mirador Cruz del Condor, which is a popular lookout point in the Colca Canyon. This viewpoint is 1,200 meters – 3937 feet above the river, with great views of the landscape especially when sunrise. In addition, there are good chances of spotting the majestic condors flies, this bird uses the upward thermal winds hovering back and forth in their search for food. Condors, which are in the vulture family, is one of the world’s largest flying birds, an adult can weighs up to 15 kg – 33 pounds. and has a wingspan of up to 3.2 meters – 10.5 feet. The condor has been traditionally of great importance, and its symbols are seen everywhere on ceramics, textiles and statues. Shamans call the Condor spirit of protection, where the big bird is believed to help a person’s soul travel to the next world after death. The condor is therefore surrounded by many myths and legends throughout Peru and is therefore an important figure in the people’s tradition and believes.
After enjoying the sights and taken lots of pictures of the mighty birds and the outstanding scenery, we go back to Chivay for lunch and board a tourist bus towards Puno. It’s a long bus ride, it takes about 6 hours with stops along the way. The landscape you’ll encounter is breathtakingly beautiful with lakes and lagoons with deep blue water, charming Andean villages and as always alpacas, llamas and guanaco herd and other birds at 4100 meters – 13451 feet above sea level.
You arrive to Puno in the evening. At the hotel you will be welcomed by a River Explorers partner, who will brief you on the activities that will take place on the Lake Titicaca.

The lake, which is 190 km 118 miles long and 80 km – 49.7 miles wide, has a surface area of 8,300 km² – 3205 mi² and lies on the border between Peru and Bolivia, both mischievously claiming that they own 70% of the lake and the other country 30%.

The tour continues to Capachica Peninsula, where you eat lunch made in the traditional way with meat, fish and potatoes cooked in a “furnace” in the ground. You will take part in a traditional ritual, which consists of a sort of “grace” in which we thank both God (the Christian) and Pachamama (Mother Earth) for the food we need to eat. Lunch will of course be enjoyed with stunning views of Lake Titicaca.
The last stop is the Uros Island, which is one of Titicaca lake’s famous floating islands. The island is made out of reeds, the island’s inhabitants must constantly repair and maintenance for the island to float.

After the ninth Inca king, Pachacutec, conquered the area, he built Ollantaytambo in the mid-1400s as an administrative center, other suggest was a military or religious center. Above the town stands an imposing fort of which Manco Inca took advantage for the resistance against the Spanish conquerors in the early 1500s.

Ollantaytambo is the starting point for the “classic” 4-days long inca trail-trek to Machu Picchu.
