Trekking, jungle and indigenous culture - the best Peru has to offer
Peru has been home to many civilisations, most notably the Incas, whose ancient cities and fortresses are still being discovered across this fascinating region. This three-part itinerary includes the Inca Trail (or alternative Moonstone Trek), which takes in beautiful mountains and cloud forest as it follows a historic route to Machu Picchu, the best-preserved and most dramatic Inca ruin. It also explores the harsh landscapes of the high altiplano and the islands of Lake Titicaca and, in complete contrast, the dense jungles of the Amazon Rainforest.

Accommodation details
Hotels, Lodges, Camping & Homestay
You will spend 7 nights in locally run hotels with en suite rooms and breakfast facilities. 3 nights will be spent in a rainforest lodge where electricity is limited to central areas. 1 night will be spent in a homestay on Lake Titicaca with basic shared facilities. During the trek we spend 3 nights full-service camping, meaning that our camp staff will erect and dismantle the tents, cook, and do all camp chores for you: you need only carry your day pack. There will also be dining and toilet tents and bowls of warm water are provided both morning and evening for washing with.

We recommend the early booking of single supplements and of pre/post-tour accommodation. Single rooms can be booked for a supplement from GBP220 (US$420), subject to availability (the supplement excludes the night in the homestay).
