Cusco and Beyond 8 days

For the Incas, Cusco was the bellybutton of the world. A visit to this city and its nearby ruins takes you back to the cosmic kingdom of ancient Andean culture, merged with the colonial imprint of the Spanish conquest, only to be repackaged as a thriving tourist center. The capital of Cusco is known as the gateway to Machu Picchu, one of the 7 wonders of the world. An impressive landscape extends from Andean peaks to cloud forests rich in orchids and Amazonian lowlands. Explore it on foot or with thick tires, rafting in wild rivers or simply challenging local buses to remote corners and worn away by the dust of this powerful cultural department.

Our lodge in Puerto Maldonado is located 25 minutes downstream among the Madre de Dios River and very close from the Hearth of the Tambopata National Reserve.
