Itinerary

Day 1Lima
Bienvenidos! Welcome to Lima, Peru. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 2 pm where you'll meet your tour leader and travel group. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask the hotel reception where it will take place. After the meeting, your leader will take you on an orientation walk of Miraflores and an optional dinner with your group. Be sure to get your hands in Peru's national dish of ceviche during your stay. As there's little time spent in Lima, you may like to arrive a few days early to see the sights, including the chic suburb of Barranco, Central Park and the National Museum.
Day 2Lima / Cusco
Catch a morning flight to Cusco, spend a little time acclimatising to the high altitude (3450 metre), then head out on an orientation walk with your tour leader. Visit the facade of Qoricancha temple, San Pedro market, the 12 Angled Stone, Regocijo Square and San Blas Square. If the altitude has you feeling lethargic, perhaps seek out some local coca tea.
Day 3Sacred Valley - Via ferrata & zip line
Transfer by minivan to the Sacred Valley of the Inca (located a 2 hour drive from Cusco) to step out of your comfort zone and into the vertical world of via ferrata. Italian for 'iron way', via ferrata is a type of climbing popularised in the European Alps in which permanent ladders, chains and cables are affixed to steep rock faces to make them accessible to non-climbers. Via ferrata doesn't require any special skills, but it is definitely physically and mentally challenging. On this full-day activity you'll experience a safe, yet unique perspective of this stunning valley. To top it off, fly through seven zip lines ranging from 150 to 700 metres long for a memorable, heart-racing adventure before travelling to Ollantaytambo for the night. If there's time, you may like to visit the town's archaeological site, which includes remanants of an Inca city and views over the present-day settlement.
