South of Peru roundtrip

A very economic priced 22 day roundtrip in the south of Peru. See the high spots of south Peru. In the basic program you travel by local class and you have basic accommodation.

Itinerary

Day 1 Arrival in Lima. You will be picked up at the airport of Lima and you will be transferred to your hotel.
Day 2 In the morning you will receive your excursion vouchers, transportation tickets and extra information about the tour in your hotel. In the afternoon departure for Pisco, a small fishing village on the coast at about 4 hours driving from Lima. It is named after the makers of the national drink Pisco Sour, the Pisco Indians.
Day 3 Early in the morning an excursion to the Ballestas Islands (2), where we will encounter a wide variety of animals. The afternoon you can fill according to your own wishes: A swimming pool? The Paracas Reserve? It is up to you. Ballestas Islands
Day 4 Early again you will leave for Ica (about 1 hour away). In Ica you will visit the Maria Reiche museum (3). Afterwards you will visit a winery and have a look at the oasis of Huacachina (4). For people interested there is the opportunity to rent a sand-board and slide down the sand dunes.
Day 5 Departure for Nazca, a small village 150-km south of Ica and about 600 meter above sea level. In the afternoon you can visit the Nazca lines. Will you take a taxi to the observation tower or would you prefer to see the lines from an airplane. The choice is yours.
Day 6 In the morning we will go to the desert in search of the cemetery of Chauchilla (5). Chauchilla is a cemetery dating from the late Nazca-period. Because of the dryness of this desert, the mummies have been preserved very well. After this visit we will go to a pottery where the people are making ceramics the same way the pre-Incas used to do it. After lunch it is again up to you: Would you like to visit the Cantallo Aqueduct or would you prefer the pool. In the evening you will take the night-bus to Arequipa. Cemetery of Chauchilla
Day 7 We will arrive in Arequipa early in the morning and the rest of the day we will take it easy to adjust to the altitude, 2335 meters above sea level. Arequipa is surrounded by spectacularly high mountain peaks, including the snow covered El Misti vulcano. Many buildings are made with a white vulcano stone, giving Arequipa its nickname "The White City".
Day 8 Today you will be picked up in the morning to visit some nice places in the direct neighbourhood of Arequipa (6). In the afternoon you can visit the Santa Catalina convent.
Day 9 & 10 From Arequipa you will leave for Chivay where you will arrive in the early afternoon (7). Here you can visit volcanic hot water springs and take a bath. Early in the morning you will go from Chivay via the Colca Canyon to Cruz del Condor. Once in Cruz del Condor you are witness to a sight that can only be found in Peru: Condors use the thermal layers in the early morning and unexpectedly fly by at eye-level. After this spectacle you will return to Arequipa. Condor in the Colca Canyon
Day 11 Today you will travel to the Puno where you will arrive in the evening.
Day 12 & 13 An excursion (8) to the Uros Isles by boat. From Uros you can take a small trip in a boat made of tortora reed. Then you will continue to Amantan island where you will spend the night. The next day you will continue to Taquile, an island where time seems to have stopped for half a century. Floating Islands of Uros
Day 14 Today you will travel to Cusco, the former capital of the Inca empire and according to the Incas the "navel of the world". In the standard tour you will travel by bus (about 8 hours). Enthusiasts can take the famous train ride to Cusco as an extra, but the train only leaves a few times each week (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday).
Day 15 In the morning we will pick you up for a City Tour in Cusco (9).
Day 16 - 20 A few days to relax in Cusco, a city which is never boring. Here you can decide for yourself what you want to do. Will you visit the long lost Inca City of Machu Picchu, do the 2 or 4 day Inca Trail, go rafting, horseback riding, relaxing or do you want to visit the market in Pisac? Cusco has more things to do and to see than we can mention here. What to do on which day is all up to you. Macu Picchu
Day 21 You will fly to Lima early in the morning where you will have the rest of the day for yourself.
