Roundtrip Experience Peru + Tambopata Rainforest

16 days / 15 nights

From the peruvian capital Lima to Arequipa, the second largest city in Peru, which is known as the «white city» because of its typical buildings made of white limestone (sillar). The whole area is dominated by the mighty Misti volcano. Be amazed by the magnificent flight of the condor, the largest bird in the world, in the Colca Valley. Visit the ancestral inhabitants of the natural and man-made islands in Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world. Discover the impressive buildings and archaeological treasures of the Inca Empire in and around Cusco and the Urubamba (Vilcanota) Valley. Watch the spectacle of countless colorful and noisy guacamayos (macaws) and parrots at the Collpa (salt lick) while experiencing the unimaginably biodiverse tropical jungle at Tambopata.

Best season for this trip

Anytime possible. In the dry season from May to November, it rarely rains in the mountains (Arequipa, Puno and Cusco) and clear visibility is likely in the travel destinations. Rain is always to be expected in the Tambopata forest. In the rainy season from December to April one finds a more lush and fresher flora with less tourist traffic. This is also when most orchids bloom.
