15 Day Peru, Bolivia and the Atacama Desert

The Inca Empire dominated South America from Ecuador to central Chile for centuries, leaving a wealth of temples, pyramids, and cultural traditions in their wake. Step into their world to marvel at the natural wonders of their kingdom on this mesmerizing journey through Peru, Bolivia, and Chile that connects you to the land, its people, and cultures.

After arriving in Cusco, the journey begins in the villages of Peru’s legendary Sacred Valley, where local artisans in traditional dress weave colorful textiles through methods passed down from the age of the Inca in the shadow of ancient ruins. Later, spend the better part of two days at Machu Picchu, the fabled Lost City of the Inca, first on a private tour of the site, then on a moderately challenging hike along the final stage of the Inca Trail through the Sun Gate. Next, embark on a privately guided walking tour of historic Cusco’s cobblestone streets and learn about early Incan astronomy on a fascinating visit to a local planetarium before moving on to your next stop, Bolivia. Near La Paz, you’ll explore Tiwanaku, the ruins of an advanced pre-Inca civilization in private before embarking on a half-day tour that will introduce you to the colonial architecture, bustling squares, and beautiful landmarks of the world’s highest national capital. From there, meet some of the continent’s natural wonders on journeys to the vast, windswept expanse of Uyuni Salt Flat and Ollagüe, a massive Andean stratovolcano before arriving in San Pedro de Atacama, gateway to Chile’s Atacama Desert, one of the driest places on Earth. Get to know this serenely beautiful part of the world through a variety of excursions, including a biking tour of the Valley of the Moon, morning hikes to the nearby Taito Geysers, and other ideas built to suit your interests and the day’s weather.
