Itinerary

Day 1
Our local guide will meet you at Cuzco airport and transfer you to the joining Hotel in the serene area of San Blas.  Our guide will arrange a suitable time to take you on an orientation walk of the City, so you can get your bearings and make the most of your time in Cuzco. (No meals included)

Day 2
Cuzco, the outdoors capital of Peru and our base for the next 7 days. A mecca for adventure travel, Peru's famous Inca Trail begins near this city. Although Cuzco is today a colonial city, most of its churches and museums are built on top of original Inca stonewalls which are clearly visible. You have the option of doing a day tour of the beautiful Urubamba or Sacred Valley of the Incas where you'll find temples, terraces, local communities and markets before returning to Cuzco for a good night's sleep before your Inca Trail!  Breakfast

Days 3 to 6
We head out early from Cuzco to the Urubamba Valley from where we begin our 4 day hike along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. This moderate to strenuous hike is a once in a lifetime experience and anyone with a good level of fitness will enjoy it. A stunning combination of awesome views, Inca ruins, magnificent mountains and exotic adventure. There are also alternatives to this trek available, for when the Classic Trail is unavailable, or by your choice.  Please see the section on Inca Trails for details, and ensure that you contact Oasis at the time of booking to arrange any alternatives.  Please also note that tickets are now being sold seperately to climb Huanapichu, the summit next to Machu Picchu, and it is imperative that those wishing to do this select this as an add-on at the time of booking to avoid disappointment. See the add-ons section of our website for more details. Our route back to Cuzco for all options is by train. Breakfast x 4, Lunch & Dinner x 3

Days 7 to 8
We have 2 free days in Cuzco to relax and recover as well as explore more of the city and its museums and churches or look for local crafts from Alpaca woollen jumpers to Andean musical instruments and local jewellery.  The adventurous can go white water rafting on the Urubamba or Apurimac River. Breakfast x 2

Day 9
Depart Cuzco by plane to the town of Puerto Maldonado, on the edge of the Tambopata - Candamo Reserve.  We enter the Reserve by boat along the Madre de Dios River and reach our jungle lodge, our base for the next 3 nights.  In the afternoon we can take a walk with our local guides who have extensive knowledge of the flora and fauna of this area. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Days 10 to 11
During our time in the reserve our guide will take us on walks and canoe trips to discover the amazing array of plant, bird, animal and insect life in the jungle.  We can walk to one of the ox-bow lakes that abounds with exotic birdlife.  Taking a boat onto the lake we also hope to see giant river otters and caimans.  Our guide will tell us about the traditional uses of the plants and trees and point out different types of monkey, macaw and moth!  3 meals each day

Day 12
Time to leave the jungle, we head back in the boat to Puerto Maldonado for the flight back to Lima. The Jungle section includes local guides, mosquito nets, bedding, food and drinking water.
