Description of Peru small group holiday, Inca Trail & Lake Titicaca

Visit Peru and discover its highlights from Lima to Cuzco on this exciting 21-day journey, taking in modern cities and ancient worlds. Explore Peru’s lush Amazon jungle, the epic Lake Titicaca and the vast Colca Canyon. Enjoy local homestays, hike the famed Inca Trail to unforgettable Machu Picchu and immerse yourself in fascinating Peruvian culture while discovering the country’s history, buried deep within the walls of lost cities.

The highlights come thick and fast on this trip. You’ll explore Lima, one of the prettiest cities in Latin America, with grand colonial facades, Spanish houses and rich culture. Adjust to the altitude with a pisco sour and some ceviche here. See the mysterious, enigmatic Nazca Lines and take a boat tour on Lake Titicaca, visiting the floating islands of Uros and spending the night with a local family in a traditional island community. Natural wonders include the Colca Canyon, which is twice as deep as the Grand Canyon, and the wild, biodiverse Amazon Jungle. Cuzco is South America’s oldest continuously inhabited city, with an interesting blend of Inca and colonial influences and then, of course, there’s majestic Machu Picchu. Whether you trek the classic Inca Trail, the Inca Quarry Trail or take the scenic train route, the ancient ruins here are a beautiful, awe-inspiring destination.

Accommodation is sometimes basic, but includes an exciting mix of camping for three nights, two homestays, 11 nights in hotels and two nights in a jungle lodge. This trip involves a lot of walking to see the sights, and if you do the Inca trail, there will be strenuous hiking, too, so you’ll need a moderate level of fitness to enjoy it. Getting around this fascinating country involves a mix of planes, public buses and trains, with the odd taxi and private vehicle, too.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Small group adventure

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is a classic style of small group adventure. You'll find your trip combines a good mix of included activities and free time, with some meals included as per your itinerary. We don't want you to feel chaperoned, it's your holiday not ours. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with organising anything you might wish to do in your free time, but how you spend it is up to you. Anything listed as included in your itinerary will be included in trip price; whereas anything listed as optional will be at an additional cost should you wish to take part.

These trips are great value, including things that you would struggle to organise independently, such as a night at a homestay in a remote village, or local guides around a remote place of interest. Transport will be a combination of private vehicle and public transport, whichever is the most appropriate for the route we are travelling; this might include train, plane, camel, tuk tuk, bicycle, boat…

On a majority of these trips you'll stay in 2-3 star accommodation, locally owned and reflective of the region you are travelling through. All solo travellers will be automatically roomed on a twin share basis with another group member of the same sex, unless you opt to pay for your own room at time of booking. There are no compulsory single supplements for solo travellers willing to share. Single rooms aren't available on camping trips, and you will be expected to help out with camp tasks such as setting up and breaking down your camp.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Peru small group holiday, Inca Trail & Lake Titicaca

As a global operator, we take our role in the tourism industry very seriously. We recognise the impact that tourism has on local communities and the environment, and we plan and operate all our tours with this front of our minds. We believe that every tour operator must be responsible in the way they conduct their business, to ensure the welfare of all people and the conservation of the environment.

We are committed to operating in a responsible manner, incorporating the principles of sustainable development in the way we provide our travellers with real life experiences. These values are more than just words on a page; they are ingrained in our culture and the daily operations of every office and every trip. In addition, we expect our staff and travellers to demonstrate the principles of responsible travel - respecting people, cultures and local environments; in the distribution of wealth; in good will and cross-cultural sharing; and in contributing to sustainable development.

We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment. This tour will take you on a journey through modern cities and ancient worlds where you will be immersed in Peruvian culture.

We take care to use local transport throughout, including buses, boats and canoes. We also stay in small, locally owned hotels and guesthouses which is a great way to put money back into the local economy. This trip includes a variety of unique and responsible accommodation including a homestay within the Colca community and a community island on Lake Titicaca and eco-friendly lodges which combines low-impact architecture with traditional native style in the Amazon Jungle. The homestays provide you with a great opportunity to interact with the locals by assisting your host with their daily activities such as planting, collecting water, peeling potatoes or preparing the family meal. A game of soccer is also a great way to make local friends. We source produce locally throughout the trip, eat at local restaurants and encourage our travellers to purchase souvenirs from local artisans and villages as we pass through.

Recruitment of our ground team comes from the local community. This not only gives a fantastic insight into the country and a snap shot of day to day life, but it also puts valuable financial resources back into the local economy, creating jobs and supporting local businesses.

As company our responsibilities don’t stop when our tours end. Our own in house foundation has been in operation for over 10 years; a not-for-profit fund that has distributed over AU$3 million to more than 70 non-government organisations since 2002, from health care, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and in environmental and wildlife protection. Donations come from our travellers and are then matched by us dollar for dollar.

We have two projects within Peru that we support. Firstly Living Heart, which is an organisation that aims to improve the lives of Andean women and children in the Sacred Valley area, near Cusco. This programme combines educational strategies, nutritional and health advice, including family planning support, and conservation education, with the purpose of promoting sustainable development and improving the quality of life for the Andean people. This work is particularly aimed at benefiting the lives of disadvantaged children. Secondly Escuela Wiñaypaq which offers free primary education in Quechua and Spanish to needy local children. Its aims are to improve the children’s education in disadvantaged rural areas and to strengthen the Andean culture and traditional values such as respect and harmony, to raise the children's self-confidence and to make them feel proud of their cultural heritage

We are proud to be a carbon neutral company. We offset all our global carbon emissions and offer a carbon offset option to passengers booking their flights through us. Through these schemes, significant financial contributions are being made on behalf of our business, suppliers, staff and travellers to internationally certified carbon abatement projects, equating to over AU$1 million since 2007. Since then, we have offset over 45,000 tonnes of carbon emissions. That's equal to approximately the amount of carbon that 2,796,047 trees would absorb over 10 years, or taking over 4,753 passenger cars off the road for an entire year!

We invest in internationally accredited offset projects that are based in our biggest destinations. These projects not only offset our emissions but they also improve the environment of the local communities by providing an alternative to fossil fuels and therefore produce less pollution.
Our current project is the Alize Çamseki wind farm in Turkey. The wind turbines produce approximately 82,000 MWh of electricity annually and in doing so prevents 52,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere each year.
