ITINERARY:

Tuesday, 25 June, 2019: Lima, Peru

Welcome to Peru!
Most flights from North America arrive in the late evening, so we will provide assistance at the airport and transfer you to the brand-new Hotel Jose Antonio in the upscale seaside Miraflores neighborhood. Rest well tonight and begin your day fresh in the morning!

Wednesday, 26 June, 2019: Lima, Peru

Guests flying on LATAM will arrive in Lima this morning and be transferred to Hotel Jose Antonio where they can join those who arrived the night for breakfast.

This morning we'll begin with a walking tour of Colonial Lima, capital of the Vice Royalty of Peru. Visit the historic downtown and appreciate more than fifty monuments and colonial edifices, such as the Paseo de la República, the San Martín Square, the Main Square, the Government Palace, the Archbishop’s Palace, and the Cathedral Basilica.

Lima, Plaza Mayor

Admire the “Treasures of Perú” collection, a fine selection of objects made of gold, ceramics and textiles from different pre-columbian cultures at the museum of the Banco Central de la Reserva. Explore the catacombs of the monumental Convento de San Francisco, home to the largest collection of religious art in the Americas.

After lunch on the grounds, you'll visit the Larco Herrera Museum. Housed in an 18th century colonial mansion, it is home to one of the the most extensive collections of pre-Columbian art in Peru. It contains fine examples of textile work, as well as the tools ancient Peruvians used to produce textiles, metals, huaco ceramics and gold and silver pieces with semiprecious stones. The Erotic Gallery is always a hit!

Larco Museum Lima Erotic Art

Enjoy dinner at the incredible pre-Columbian Huaca Puccllana pyramid right in Miraflores, and overnight at Hotel Jose Antonio in Miraflores.

Thursday, 27 June 2019: Lima to Arequipa

After breakfast, transfer from Hotel Jose Antonio in Mirafores to the airport for your flight from Lima to Arequipa.

Friday, 28 June 2019: Arequipa - Colca Canyon - Chivay

Early in the morning after breakfast, we proceed to a wonderful trip to Colca Canyon. We’ll make the ascent from the road leading along the snowy Yura Chachani Mountain and reach the Natural Reserve of Pampa Cañahuas, a spacious habitat for Vicuña and Alpacas. Later on, we arrive at the grasslands of Toccra where we will see a diverse variety of birds. As we pass through Patapampa and Mirador de los Andes, located at 15900 feet high, we will stop to enjoy the charm of the landscape. Finally, we start the descent to the charming, traditional town of Chivay where we will enjoy lunch, then proceed to our hotel in the valley.

Refugio del Colca

Saturday, 29 June 2019: Chivay – Arequipa, to board Andean Explorer luxury train

Early breakfast to start our journey towards the Cruz del Condor, located 26 miles from Chivay and explore its captivating landscape on the shores of Canyon. Later we reach the famous Cruz del Condor, where we stop for about an hour to appreciate the amazing flight of many condors, which occurs only in the early hours of the day. The viewpoint is located near the point where the canyon reaches its greatest depth, so the show is doubly
