Discovering Peru’s Hidden History.

This tour is something rather special, an opportunity to see the landscape as an early explorer might have done, visiting some sites way off the beaten track. Explore a side of Peru that most visitors miss, criss-crossing the Andes from the coast to mountain peaks to the sea and back again. As we work our way south, we discover fortresses hidden in the clouds, adobe-brick cities and monumental pyramids.

Tour highlights:

  • Visit Kuélap – known as the Machu Picchu of the North, but just at the beginning of its renown.
  • Discover lesser-visited sites, such as the Tucume pyramids and the Leymebamba museum
  • Explore Chan Chan, the biggest city ever built from adobe bricks, and capital of a powerful desert empire before the Incas
  • Visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Chavín de Huántar with John Rick, its excavator for more than 25 years
