Lima to Cuzco
Overlanding is the best way to see South America by far! Dragoman have been leading the way in South American overland expeditions since 1990, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading to some unique hidden gems, well away from the usual tourist trail. If you want to see the best of Peru in a short timeframe, then this trip is a must. This fantastic itinerary takes in all the highlights between Lima and Cuzco, including the Ballestas Islands, the Huacachina Desert, the Nazca Lines, the Colca Canyon, Arequipa and of course Cuzco itself and the Inca Trails to the phenomenal ruins of Machu Picchu. Every day on this trip is packed with highlights, but our travellers tell us that the best part of it all is the week-long Wild Andes Trail through the Urubamba Valley culminating in a visit to the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. As well as staying with our Quechuan Indian hosts to learn about their culture, you'll be trekking an ancient trade route which is unique to Dragoman and well away from other tourists trekking the 'Classic' Inca Trail, although that is still an option if you prefer. Another cultural highlight is staying in a typical Peruvian homestay in the quaint village of Raqchi where you'll sample local dishes and be treated to a ceremonial singing and dancing display. This is a truly special itinerary to see the very best of Peru!
