At a Glance

The Peru Individual trip combines the little-known, spectacular north with the classic destinations of the southeast before ending in La Paz, Bolivia.
Starting in the metropolis of Lima, the itinerary first heads north, where Chiclayo is the starting point for visiting the museums of Lambayeque and the clay pyramids of Túcume, before traveling to the land of the legendary Cloud People.
From their mighty fortress of Kuélap, often referred to as the ‘Machu Picchu of the North’, there are dramatic distant views over the province of Chachapoyas on the eastern edge of the Andes.
Via the enigmatic rock niche tombs of Revash and the village of Leymebamba with its mummy museum, the journey leads in breathtaking ups and downs to the old colonial city of Cajamarca.
This is where the Inca Empire and its last leader Atahualpa once met their bloody end.
To the navel of the world, as the Incas called their capital Cusco, the next stop of your journey will take you. After crossing the Sacred Valley with stops in Ollantaytambo, Pisac and, of course, Machu Picchu, you will travel to Lake Titicaca with interesting stops along the way. Here, the picturesquely located Copacabana is the starting point to visit the Island of the Sun, where the Inca rulers saw their mythological origin.
With Bolivia’s in many respects breathtaking metropolis La Paz you have then reached the final point of the trip after three weeks.
