Hosted by EverGreen's own naturalist guide Kieron Weidner, along with local Peruvian guides, this captivating 11 day, 10 night journey through Peru offers guests a truly immersive, in-depth understanding of this incredible destination through its gourmet cuisine, historical and archeological sites, spiritual festivals, and outdoor adventures.
“There is more cultural history packed into this one country than anywhere else I have ever been,” said Weidner. “It rivals Egypt in archeological sites and many civilizations are just now being unearthed. There are even sites being discovered right in downtown Lima! We have yet to fully understand the multitude of ancient cultures that preceded the Spanish conquest of the Inca, and since Peru has only recently become a popular travel destination there is a very palpable excitement in the air. Visiting Peru is like being in your own Indiana Jones movie!”
Exploring this land of extreme landscapes and climates, the small group of travelers will traverse the region from desert to lush rain forest, and from beaches to towering mountains. They will become well-acquainted with the culture through hands-on activities like cooking classes with a chef in his own home in Lima, learning the ancient flat weaving techniques of Pisac, participating in a Spiritual Pachamama Ceremony, and much more.
Guests will explore both classic and modern Lima, take a guided walking tour of Cusco and the Sacred Valley, explore the archeological site of Maoray and the Maras Salt Mines, and experience an unforgettable guided trek and camping journey from Salkantay to Machu Picchu. Participants enjoy luxury accommodation in Country Club Lima Hotel, Casa Cartagena Boutique Hotel & Spa, Sol & Luna Lodge, Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, and Tambo Del Inka Luxury Collection Hotel.
