Cusco, Peru

Cusco, ancient capital of the Incas.

The early morning finds you at Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport for transport to the ancient Inca capital city of Cusco. Start your Inca tour by visiting Awanakancha, a living  museum of Andean camelids (llamas, alpacas, vicuñas). Then, visit the famous Pisac market as you travel through the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Spend a morning at the community of Huilloc where ancient Inca customs are still alive. You will also visit a rural school. (Small school supplies will be welcomed as a donation!) Participate in the Kusi Runa, as you experience how the Andean men (“runa”) live their daily agricultural life, wearing the typical Huilloc poncho and using traditional tools. The activity ends with a spiritual moment expressed through local dance and music. Then, enjoy a delicious home-cooked Andean lunch with local products harvested in traditional and sustainable ways. Later, visit the ancient ruins of Ollantaytambo.

Machu Picchu

As the Sacred Valley tour continues, you will board the Vistadome train to the base of Machu Picchu, the “Lost City of the Incas,” for the trip up to the ancient citadel by bus. Return to Machu Picchu the next day by bus for sunrise and to tour the entire city. On the way back to Cusco you will be able to visit the spectacular ruined fortress of Sacsayhuaman and the vestiges of Puka Pukara, Tambomachay and Qenquo. A day spent in Cusco itself will complete this portion of the tour. Visit the Coricancha (“Temple of the Sun”), the main plaza, and enjoy a relaxing final evening at the El Mercado Tunqui Hotel.

Four hours south of Lima in the wine country of Ica, see Huacachina, the famous Oasis of the Americas.

Beginning in Huaraz, the capital city of Ancash province, you will drive along the breathtaking Callejon de Huaylas watered by the Santa River below Peru’s majestic Mt. Huascaran, the country’s highest snow peak.

On the way through the valley, visit the picturesque towns of Carhuaz, Caraz, Recuay and the national shrine of Yungay, where, it is said, the “Christ Child of the Andes” lived and walked before perishing in the avalanche of 1962. A later avalanche of 1970 sealed the town as a memorial for all time. Spend the day walking and reflecting on the messages of The Child.

This Andean Pilgrimage concludes with a journey to Lake Llanguanuco in the heart of the Huascaran Biosphere Reserve.
