The Inca Heartland tour starts in La Paz and ends in Cusco. The Inca Heartland is a trekking tour that takes 12 days taking you from La Paz to Cusco and through other destinations in South America.

This tour balances Peru with Bolivia through both countries sitting astride the massive Altiplano, or high plateau and populated by the Quechuan Indians. The Cholitas are so quintessentially Andean, that these colourful ladies are almost the symbol of Bolivia.

This trip ties the heartland of the Incas, Cuzco, the Urubamba Valley, Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail, into the framework of the Andes and beautiful Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world. The stunning scenery of the region combines with its history to make this region of Peru, the most popular tourist attraction in South America. Hence we purposely offer alternative Inca Trails away from other tourists and spend time visiting the historic Bolivian town of Copacabana and the colourful city of La Paz.

“Generally speaking the trip was great. The leaders were fantastic, both in organization, creating a safe and fun space, and helping with any issues that occured during the trip. The type of travelling is challenging, and very fast paced in terms of movement, but very very rewarding. I would, and will, recommend dragoman to anyone interested in travelling.”

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
