HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Trek jungle trails and track wildlife with local experts in the Amazon rainforest and spend two nights sleeping among nature in lodges.
  • Marvel at the mother of all Inca cities, magical Machu Picchu. Enjoy a guided tour of the ruins and free time to explore on your own.
  • Take a boat tour on Lake Titicaca – the world's highest navigable lake – then alight at a floating island made of reeds for a unique homestay.
  • Spend three days in captivating La Paz, exploring with your Bolivian leader and letting the weird and wacky Witches Market cast a spell over you.
The Explore Peru & Bolivia tour starts in Lima and ends in La Paz. The Explore Peru & Bolivia tour is an explorer trip that takes 25 days. You will travel through Bolivia, Mexico and Peru and visit Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, Lima and 15 other destinations. This is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Peru and Bolivia are both lands of the epic and that which must be seen to be believed. This 25-day odyssey takes you to the world’s highest-navigable lake (Titicaca), the world’s largest tropical rainforest (the Amazon), the world’s highest administrative capital (La Paz) and the world’s largest salt flats (Uyuni). It also includes the chance to trek the Inca Trail before emerging above Machu Picchu, which isn’t actually a world-record holder but probably should be for ‘best ancient city in the clouds’. In between the gasps you can ramble through markets, sipping Pisco sours and munching ceviche with locals.

Is this trip right for you:
  • The Andes Mountains are breathtaking, but the heights reached on this trip can cause some people to suffer from altitude sickness, regardless of age or health. Please see the ‘Medical and health information’ section of Essential Trip Information for more important information on this.
  • Some of the best sightseeing on this trip takes place on walks, which range from gentle to strenuous (if you choose to hike the Inca Trail). While this trip doesn't require a high level of fitness, it’s essential to be at least moderately fit if you want to take part in all activities.
  • Those who walk the Inca Trail will be camping with basic facilities. It's not exactly the Hilton, but the rewards of the trek are many!
  • The Amazon is a tropical jungle and as such can be very humid. It's important to drink plenty of water and wear light cotton clothing, plus be sure to bring tropical-strength insect repellent.
  • The best way to see the sights in and around Uyuni is by 4WD. You’ll be crossing some bumpy surfaces, but we think a rollicking ride is all part of the adventure.
  • In Bolivia (especially in Uyuni), sometimes things don't go to plan. For example, an attraction may be closed for the day with no notice or reason. Your local leader will organise alternative plans if this happens.
  • Our travellers consistently rate the Andean Desert and Uyuni Salt Flats as a trip highlight. Just know that facilities along the way aren’t exactly luxurious (it is the desert, after all). Be prepared for cold nights and showers with no hot water, simple meals, basic amenities and multi-share accommodation.
