AMAZON RIVER AND RAINFOREST

ARIA AMAZON CRUISE

To begin your incredible journey in Peru, you’ll head to Iquitos, gateway to the country’s jungle interior. A trip down the Amazon River is a dream for many adventurers, and this is just the ticket. Spend three nights (a four-night option is also available) aboard the luxurious and modern Aria Amazon, a 147-foot-long custom-designed cruise ship with all kinds of wonderful amenities: oversize guest suites with massive windows to better take in the passing river and lush shoreline, air-conditioning, a curated organic wine selection, cuisine prepared with exotic local ingredients by a Lima-based chef, and guided activities that include kayaking, fishing, and spying wildlife.

There’s an incredible amount of biodiversity along these banks. The ship’s staff will tell you where to look for piranhas, monkeys, sloths, or kingfishers as you ply the largest river in the world. In addition, you’ll meet local villagers, learn about their day-to-day life, and get to peruse their artisanal crafts.

A visit to the Manatee Rescue Center wraps up the tail end of your jungle experience. The center provides rehabilitation efforts to help orphaned manatees before releasing them back into the wild. Then you’ll stop at the Amazonian Indian Market for a last chance to purchase native handicrafts that will remind you of your incredible river passage.

THE SACRED VALLEY OF THE INCAS

INKATERRA HACIENDA URUBAMBA

Today you’ll head from the coast to the highlands: a flight to Cuzco, in the heart of the Andes. En route to your lodge, you’ll stop at a local artisan’s market, notable for woven crafts, colorful tapestries, and fine textiles.

Your retreat is at the center of an amazing landscape—dramatic mountains, a rushing river, and verdant fields—and the colonial-style of Hacienda Urubamba reflects this valley’s heritage with inspired details, including an ecological farm that grows both native food and medicinal plants; all kinds of active exploratory adventures, from horseback riding to hiking; a spa that utilizes local herbs and stones; and cozy rooms with amazing vistas and modern comforts.

SSACRED VALLEY TO MACHU PICCHU

INKATERRA MACHU PICCHU PUEBLO HOTEL

Prior to your train ride to Aguas Calientes, the town set at the foot of Machu Picchu, you have the chance to visit Ollantaytambo—the oldest continuously occupied settlement in South America. After ample time to explore and imagine life as it must have been lived hundreds of years ago, board the Vistadome for a scenic train ride that climbs through lush mountain valleys.

Once in Aguas Calientes you'll head to the Inkaterra Pueblo Hotel, uniquely situated amid a cloud-forest paradise, in the heart of an Andean village on 12 nature-filled acres. This tranquil property was built with local stone, adobe, stucco, and eucalyptus beams, respecting traditional techniques of the region, and it’s the perfect place to take your binoculars out for bird-watching (there are more than 200 species) or wander amid the world’s largest native collection of orchids. In addition, a couples massage is part of the package; it’s the best way to relax and loosen up your muscles before tomorrow’s big trip.

The next day marks the most iconic portion of this tour of Peru: the marvels of Machu Picchu, a World Heritage site that dates back to the 15th century. Your ascent to this famous Incan citidel features breathtaking views, and your knowledgable guide will explain all the mysteries and discoveries tied to this spectacular archeological site during a full-day tour. It’s an awesome experience, one that both of you will undoubtedly remember for the rest of your life.

THE ANCIENT CITY OF CUZCO

INKATERRA LA CASONA HOTEL

No trip would be complete without a visit to this vibrant capital of the Inca Empire: Cuzco. La Casona Hotel, a colonial manor located near the main square, is thought to be one of the first Spanish constructions in the city. Inca soldiers trained here, and Peru’s great liberator, Simón Bolívar, enjoyed the hospitality of this home as well. The rich tradition of the hotel is balanced with modern trimmings, like heated floors and plush bath suites. Your last few days in Peru will include tasting authentic dishes and sightseeing the nearby ruins. It’s been an amazing trip: you’ve explored its most unique corners, seen new wildlife and a surprising number of ecosystems, met urban and rural Peruvians, had a taste of its special food and drink, and perhaps are already envisioning your next return.
