Combine two amazing adventures into one life changing trip as you immerse yourself in the Amazon jungle and the heart of the Andes.
Peru is a destination of many landscapes: sea, deserts, mountains, alpine lakes, and rainforests. This trip combines two of Peru’s most mystical regions, the Amazon and the Andes, into one adventure filled with exotic wildlife, ancient tradition, and breathtaking hikes.
Venture into the steamy Amazon where you’ll explore the jungle by foot, boat, and bike from your lodge. Watch macaws flock to a clay lick in the early morning light, keep a sharp eye out for capybara on the oxbow lake, and ascend an observation tower to view the life of the upper canopy. Traveling from the Amazon to the Andes you’ll see a completely different side of Peru. In the Sacred Valley of the Incas you cycle along dirt tracks through the Maras salt mines, learn ancient weaving techniques, and hike the Inca Trail to visit Machu Picchu, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Our expert, local guides lead us through it all. This journey is a wonderful way to see Peru’s rich natural beauty while discovering the history that make this area such a bucket list destination.
