Days 1, 2

LIMA

HOTEL B

The country’s oceanfront capital is the perfect place to get your bearings—and try some of Peru’s best cuisine, which draws from indigenous and European lineage. The posh Hotel B, close to beaches, shops, well-manicured parks, and art galleries, is set in the bohemian arts district of Barranco.

Barranco is often advertised as the SoHo of Lima, yet with a colonial flair setting the architectural scene and an enviable view over the Pacific that draws many a visitor to its shores come sunset. A private city tour highlights the capital’s most famous attractions, and a stop at Larco Museum lets you peruse galleries of pre-Columbian art, a window into the culture you'll be experiencing for the rest of your trip.

 
 
 
 
 

Days 3, 4, 5

SACRED VALLEY OF THE INCAS

INKATERRA HACIENDA URUBAMBA

One of the most stunning areas of Peru is the Sacred Valley of the Incas, carved out by the Urubamba River. This lush, fertile region was once the heart of this powerful empire and is still full of ruins. The contemporary Hacienda Urubamba, set on 100 acres overlooking the valley, is an ideal retreat to enjoy the solitude.


With a design style that reflects a medley of Spanish and indigenous cultures, this hotel’s stand-alone casitas offer privacy for your family, modern amenities, as well as expansive views of the surrounding mountains and fields. In the Sacred Valley, you can step back quite considerably in time, to the fascinating Incan agricultural terraces of Moray and Pisac and the Maras salt mines (still in use after a thousand years). This verdant valley is also home to colonial villages, a lauded market where Quechua people sell their wares, and the famous weaving villages of Chinchero (whose 17th century church is built atop an Incan palace) and Awanacancha. There are literally layers of civilization to explore in this region.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Days 6, 7

MACHU PICCHU

MACHU PICCHU PUEBLO HOTEL

Your next destination is the highlight for many: Machu Picchu. You'll board the Vistadome train from Ollantaytambo to embark on a spectacular journey through the changing landscapes of Peru.

Upon arrival, you’ll check into Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel (your home for the next two nights) before taking off on any number of mini adventures perfect for the whole family. Walk through an orchid garden of 372 species, bird-watch for the golden-headed quetzal, or hike up trails that take you to pre-Inca pictographs and an enchanting waterfall. The next day you'll have a full Machu Picchu experience at the citadel, with a guide who will make sure you don't miss a thing.

 
 
 
 
 

Days 8, 9

CUZCO

INKATERRA LA CASONA

From the World Heritage site of Machu Picchu, you'll head southeast to Cuzco, one of the Western Hemisphere’s oldest continuously inhabited cities. It was, notably, the capital of the Incan empire and remnants of this glorious period are still evident throughout the city and worth exploring.

You'll leave the Andes highlands via the Vistadome train, and upon arrival in Cuzco, you'll be shown to the 11-suite Inkaterra La Casona, a Relais & Châteaux property originally built in the 16th century and just a block away from the main Plaza de Armas. This former manor house has played host to Spanish conquistador Diego de Almagro and the famous 'Libertador' Simón Bolívar, while the surrounding land once served as training grounds for Incan armies. A private tour of Cuzco and the Incan ruins nearby are just one of many options available, as are more active endeavors, such as downhill mountain biking and hiking. Or spend some time in the hotel’s spa and then enjoy tea from your balcony overlooking the stately courtyard.

 
 
 
 
 

Days 10, 11, 12, 13

THE AMAZON: AN ULTIMATE FINALE

HACIENDA CONCEPCIÓN

From Cuzco, depart for a grand finale in the Amazon. You'll fly into Puerto Maldonado, gateway to the jungle, and immediately hop aboard a canoe that will motor you along the Madre de Dios River to Hacienda Concepción, where thatched-roof cabanas with decadent decor and amenities await amid some 2,000 acres of rainforest. Enjoy an organic and locally sourced lunch, then head off for a hike. The property has a variety of nature trails that can be explored with a guide, who can point out howler monkeys, river otters, and the many of hundreds of species of local butterflies and birds. Or paddle along the river at dusk as the surrounding wilds come alive with the sounds of the jungle. You'll have plenty of time, and plenty ways, to experience the surrounds, one of the world's most biodiverse ecosystems.

The last few days of your trip will be spent in a similar manner, experiencing the river and treetops via an intricate system of towers and hanging bridges that afford a bird’s-eye view of the jungle all the way toward the horizon. You’ll also get to check out a native farm to learn how products are cultivated locally, and see a nearby botanical garden to discover the immense variety of medicinal plants that grow here. Try your hand at native fishing techniques one afternoon, or sit back and enjoy a pisco sour, the famous cocktail that originated in Peru.
