We make sure the tour departs irrespective of the numbers as we love going back to South America. The 10 nights in Peru (including the 2 in the Amazon) and the 3 nights in the Brazil will stay with you for a lifetime.
On arrival, we will drive to our City Centre Hotel via the coastal road and check-in. Today, we will have a relaxing evening to have a stroll near the hotel.
After a leisurely breakfast, we will adjust ourselves with the time difference. Post lunch we will have an excursion of the Lima city. We will leave you to enjoy the evening on your own.
In the morning, check out and head to Lima Airport to board a flight to the interior Jungle region of the massive Amazon. Puerto Maldonado is where the Tambopata and Madre de Dios rivers merge and this would be the start of our 2 days Amazon Adventure. We will sail on the Madre de Dios to reach the Jungle River Lodge for our two nights stay. In the evening, we have a walk to observe the nocturnal insects. There would also be boating on the river, as the chances of spotting a caiman (alligator family) are good after sunset.
You will have an option to enjoy various forest excursions depending on your physical abilities. One of the excursions is a walk to the Sandoval Lake where you might have the company of the Otters in the lake. In the afternoon we will have time to relax or take more of the excursions arranged by our forest guides. The lodge is located beautifully on the banks of the Madre de Dios, where you could just sit and enjoy the sunset.
Transfer to the airport to board the flight to Cusco. On our arrival in Cusco, we would drive to down to a much lower altitude to the Sacred Valley. Our hotel for the next two nights will be in Yucay a town on the banks of the Urubamba River. Sleeping at a lower altitude than Cusco is always better to wake up fresh to witness the magic of Machu Pichu.
In the morning, transfer to the train station in the town of Ollantaytambo to leave by Vistadome train to Aguas Calientes, the base of Machu Pichu. The train journey is scenic and parallel to the gushing waters of the Urubamba. Once in Aguas Calientes, we will take the bus to the entrance of the ruins of Machu Picchu where the guided tour will start.
In the morning after visiting the Market of Pisac, we will proceed to Cusco. On arrival in Cusco, we will visit the Central Square and the Cathedral. After lunch, we will visit the most important temple in the Inca Empire, Qorikancha. The evening is free to wander the streets of Cusco which in spite of being touristy is very charming.
After a leisurely breakfast, we will set out to explore more of this ancient capital of the Incas. Lunch will be local after which we will proceed to the airport to board the flight to Lima. On arrival, we will check into the Airport Hotel. This will be a transit stay before we head to Iguassu.
After breakfast, we will board the flight to Foz do Iguazu. After arrival, we will proceed to check into our hotel in the town of Foz Do Iguazu in Brazil. Enjoy a traditional Brazilian Dinner.
Today we would need to cross the border twice and therefore passports are needed to be carried. We will arrive on the Argentinian side of the falls and start with the train ride to the ‘Devils Throat’ station. The walkway will take us to the edge of the falls where water drop is at its most powerful and that’s why this section is called the Devils Throat. We will also witness other waterfalls on both the upper and lower circuit of the falls. The most exciting part of the day will come when you would get into a speed boat and go under the falls to get soaking wet. At the end of the day we will drive back to Foz in Brazil.
The Iguassu falls are one of the new seven natural wonders of the world. The view from the Brazilian side is different than that which we witness from Argentina. On the Brazilian side there is a long walk- way along the canyon with an extension to the lower base of the Devils Throat, which today would be actually visible as we would be facing it. After lunch we will head to the airport to board a flight to Rio de Janeiro. The evening is free to enjoy a walk on the famous Copa Cabana beach.
In the morning after breakfast, we will visit the Sugarloaf Mountain taking a cable car to the top. We can enjoy breathtaking views of the Copa Cabana beach from here as well as the rest of the city. In the evening, visit the Corcovado, from where it is possible to admire the most famous icon of the city, a white Christ or which is also known as the Christ De Redeemer. Later we will proceed to the airport late night in order to get ready for our flight back home.
From the Rio De Janeiro airport we will board the flight back to home.
