An unrivalled journey through Argentina, Peru and Bolivia and a trek to Machu Picchu. On this complete panorama of South America we combine the cultural highlights with time in the Amazon jungle and a spectacular day walks in the Andes. Exploring the cultural dimensions of our journey we travel from Buenos Aires, the vibrant Paris of South America, and the magnificent Iguazu Falls to Lima. We continue onto Cusco, with its endearing Inca and Spanish heritage and La Paz with its colourful markets and live music clubs. By contrast, the more active stages of the program will provide further enduring memories. In the rainforest of the Amazon jungle, we undertake gentle canoe trips in search of the prolific birdlife, while in the Andes we trek on ancient pathways. In the company of our experienced guides we follow sections of what were once ancient Inca Trails past traditional villages before finally ascending to the cloud forest to join the last section of the legendary Inca Trail into Machu Picchu.
