First Class Travel to Arequipa & Machu Picchu

This first class Colca Canyon and Machu Picchu Vacation visits Arequipa, Colca Canyon, Cruz del Condor, Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Inca, and Machu Picchu in just 9 days. The Colca Canyon is twice as deep as the Grand Canyon and home to animals such as the Andean Condor among another 100 species of birds, vicuña, guanaco, llama, and alpaca and is surprisingly not as well visited as other natural wonders in Peru.

This Colca Canyon and Machu Picchu tour package skips the Big City of Lima and heads straight to Arequipa, known as the white city. Private guided tours & transfers, internal flights, specified meals, all entrance fees, superior 4-star Hotels, and everything you should expect in a Luxury Peru vacation are included in this package.

Take the first class Vistadome Train to and from Machu Picchu where you will spend two days exploring this Wonder of the World from the superior 4-star El MaPi Hotel before returning to Cusco.

You will have the last day free to purchase any last minute souvenirs and enjoy the historic city center before you fly to Lima and Home.

Nicknamed the ‘white city’, Arequipa is surrounded by spectacular mountains, including the volcano El Misti.  A fascinating feature of the city is its many beautiful buildings made of a light-colored volcanic rock called sillar.

The City Tour of Arequipa is a great way to get to know the impressive beauty of “La Ciudad Blanca”, the White City. The tour includes sites such as the church and square of San Francisco, home of La Compañía de Jesus, colonial homes, the Plaza de Armas and the unforgettable Convent of Santa Catalina, characterized by its narrow streets and different styles and famous in the 16th century.

The Convent of Santa Catalina, perhaps the most fascinating colonial religious building in the country, was until recently home to almost 450 nuns.

Private Colca Canyon Tour

We will depart at 7:30, crossing 160 Km to the town of Chivay, capital of the Province of Caylloma. At the beginning of our excursion we will enjoy the majestic views of the Misti, Chachani and PichuPichu volcanoes and then approach the National Reserve of “Pampa Cañahuas”, where our transportation will make a short stop to observe the wild Vicuñas (the most important American camel) in its natural habitat. At this point we will be around 3,400 meters above sea level.

We will arrive to “Pata Wasi” (Pata=high Wasi=home) an Andean community at the opposite border of the reserve. Here you might enjoy the natural formation of rocks and the view to the backside of the Misti and Chachani volcanoes. To prevent altitude sickness, we will have an original Andean “Mate de Coca” drink in Sunbay at 3,800 meters above sea level.

Continuing on the road we will pass through “Tocra” over the 4,500-meter-high mountains, where we will observe lakes with migrant birds and get pictures of the “Antiplano” (high plains) with its Llamas and Guanacos. Our highest point will be “Pata Pampa” (Pata=high, Pampa=land) located at 4,820 meters, where we’ll observe the volcanoes Ampato, Sabancaya, Hualca-Hualca, Mismi (the source of the Amazon River), and the “Cordillera de Chila”.

In the afternoon we will walk to the real Indian Town of Coporaque, where we will visit its traditional main square and – optionally- go on a hike to the hill of the San Antonio ruins, where we will visit a cemetery and have a wonderful view to the terraces of the Canyon (the hike takes about 1 hr.)

Colca Lodge Hotel, Spa, & Hot Springs

We invite you to feel the energy of one of the most spectacular regions in the south of Peru: The Colca Valley. This is where the river meets the sky, the sun joins the moon and the mind and body are connected; there is history, and the friendly people retain their traditions, their legends and their spirit.

At an altitude of 3250 metres above sea level and two-and-a-half hours travel from the city of Arequipa, our hotel nestles on the banks of the River Colca. It is surrounded by hundreds of pre-Inca agricultural terraces, which have been declared a Peruvian cultural heritage, and is blessed with relaxing hot spring waters rich in lithium.

This is a place with ancient energy, synchronized with nature and the starting point for exploring the valley and visiting the Colca Canyon, one of the world`s deepest ravines.

At Colca Lodge you will feel another dimension to relaxation at our hot springs Eco-spa where we offer you a steam room, Jacuzzis, and massage sessions with local therapists. The spa was conceived as eco-friendly, and makes use of geothermal energy without interfering with or polluting the natural environment.

You will also feel the healing power of our open-air hot pools, each one with a different temperature. Taking a bath in the light from the stars is simply a magical experience. In addition to the sense of tranquility and harmony provided by the relaxing effect of the lithium, the landscape and the never-ending murmuring of the river complete an experience not to be forgotten.

Each of the 45 rooms have a wonderful view towards the valley and are built around the gardens and courtyards which make up the hotel. The style is rustic, with thatched roofs and some of them have adobe walls. An ecological heating system which uses the geothermal energy has been implemented in the hotel. The bathrooms are supplied with hot water from solar heaters.

All 27 standard rooms have small terraces where one can sit in the sunshine and admire the unique local Andean landscape. There are 15 quadruple rooms fitted with two beds up in rustic mezzanines built out of eucalyptus logs. There are two suites suitable for families of four members, and one bridal suite ideal for honeymooners, with the hotel’s best view and its own Jacuzzi fed by a hot spring.

Full Day Private Sacred Valley of the Inca Tour

Pisac Market | Pisac Ruins | Lunch Posada Tunupa | Ollantaytambo

Pisac Market

A famed hill town, Pisac is a great place to purchase top quality Andean knitwear at lower prices than visitors will find in major cities during their travels in Peru. Woven blankets, tapestries, and alpaca garments such as sweaters and mittens, colorful fabric and accessories are found in abundance at the Pisac market in addition to pottery, jewelry, and other handicrafts.

Pisac Inca Ruins

It’s not hard to succumb to the charms of sunny Pisac, a bustling colonial village at the base of a spectacular Inca fortress perched on a mountain spur. Its pull is universal and recent years have seen an influx of expats and new age followers in search of an Andean Shangri-la.  Located just 33km northeast of Cuzco by a paved road, it’s the most convenient starting point to the Sacred Valley.

Ollantaytambo

After lunch, we proceed onto Ollantaytambo an attractive little town located at the western end of the Sacred Valley. The town is located at the foot of some spectacular Inca ruins which protected the strategic entrance to the lower Urubamba Valley. The temple area is at the top of steep terracing which helped to provide excellent defenses. Stone used for these buildings was brought from a quarry high up on the opposite side of the Urubamba River – an incredible feat involving the efforts of thousands of workers. The complex was still under construction at the time of the conquest and was never completed.

Guided Tour of Machu Picchu (2 – 3 Hours)

The ‘Holy Grail’ for lovers of Inca monuments, the enigmatic lost city of Machu Picchu is the most famous archaeological site in all of South America and possibly the world. The spectacular collection of temples, terraced hills and plazas was the mountain-top citadel of the Inca under Pachacutec and Tupac Yupanqui, until the coming of the Europeans with Pizarro.

It may have the most familiar name, but Machu Picchu has refused to reveal many of its mysteries, including the secrets of its construction, function, and demise. The overgrown ruins were discovered by US historian Hiram Bingham in 1911, and the quality of the stonework hints that it was an extremely important ceremonial site.

The remains are thought to date from around 1450, built at the height of the Inca Empire, and as they escaped being plundered by the Spanish they include semi-intact icons and shrines that were defaced or removed at other sites.

Entering the site, a set of steps leads to the ruined Temple of the Sun and a series of altars and niches.  Highlights include the remains of ceremonial baths, the Sacred Plaza with its tremendous view across the Urubamba River valley, a rare shrine to the sun, and a labyrinth of passageways and cells.

The Sun Gate (2 Hours)

Inti Punku the Sun Gate marks the entrance to Machu Picchu.

It is a one-hour uphill hike to the southeast of the Sanctuary, climbing more than 300 meters. The hike is on the original Inca trail and is paved with Inca stones. There is a spectacular view from the gate!

Additional Tours Available

Apu Machu Picchu (4 to 5 Hours Roundtrip)

The hike to the summit of Apu Machu Picchu is 2 ½ hours and can be quite steep in places.

This is a breathtaking hike, lot of orchids along the way, birds in the bushy areas, and with every stop the view is gets better and better. The climb is 600 meters uphill, so a reasonable level of fitness is required.

*** Access to Apu Machu Picchu is controlled by special tickets which need to be purchased in advance by us. Access is 07:00 – 11:00.  Please ask to have these tickets included in your tour if desired***

Inka Bridge (Bridge 1 Hour Round Trip)

This hike is to the south west of Machu Picchu, a nice original trail that overlooks the Aobamba valley and the Hydro-electric plant.

This Inca Bridge is a part of a mountain trail that heads west from Machu Picchu. The trail is a stone path, part of which is cut into a cliff face.  A twenty-foot gap was left in this section of the carved cliff face, over a 1,900 feet drop that could be bridged with two tree trunks. When the tree trunks were removed then the trail became impassable to outsiders. The path is narrow and paved with original Inca stones.

Huayna Picchu (3 – 4 Hours)

Huayna Picchu is the mountain you see behind Machu Picchu. Towering above the north end of Machu Picchu this steep mountain is often seen in the backdrop to the classic photos of the ruins.

The mountain is steep, but stone steps are laid along most of the way and where the mountain is steeper you will find steel cables used as handrails. For fit people it is not a difficult climb.

Very Limited Access!

Only 400 people are allowed to hike Huayna Picchu each day.  You have to sign in at the entrance gate. The first 200 tickets are available for the 8:00am hike. The second 200 are available at 10:00am.

***We need to buy these special tickets in advance to be sure you will have space for this hike***
