We will walk the streets of Lima, Cusco, Arequipa and Puno, see the treasures of the ancient Inca civilization - the terraces of Morai, the salt mines of Maras and, of course, Machu Picchu.

  • Day 4
    Bus trip to Aguas Calientes (about 6 hours) through the holy valley of the Incas and an easy walk (2 hours) through the jungle with views to the Andes heights. Checking into a guesthouse, visiting the city, possible bathing in thermal springs.

  • Day 7
    We arrive in Puno, a small town near Lake Titicaca at an altitude of 3812 meters above sea level. This is the highest mountain lake in the world, used by ships! We leave for the island of Takil, where less than 2 thousand people live in tiny villages. There are no roads and motor vehicles are prohibited. The locals wear unusual costumes with white shirts, and the local men are known not only as first-class fishermen, but also skilled weavers. The fabrics and clothing that are made here are valued throughout the country. On boats we head to another part of the lake, where the unique floating islands of the Uros tribe are located. These small, mobile islands were made of reeds that grow on the shores of Titicaca. Legend has it that the Uros fled from the mainland from the persecution of the Incan king and were forced to build their homes on the water. Usually on an island measuring 15 by 15 meters there are several simple huts in which one family lives. We will see an unusual way of life and find out how these people of the lake get food. In the evening we return to Puno, and spend the night in the hotel.
