Circuito Sul com Machu Picchu - 9 dias

This grand trip of Peru takes you to the south of the country to see the famous Nazca Lines, Arequipa and Lake Titicaca before heading north to Cusco and the magnificent ruins of Machu Picchu. The trip will make the most of your Peru vacations and let you get to know a significant portion of the country and its cultures. The Nazca Lines and preserved mummies are strikingly different to what you observe at Machu Picchu. Lake Titicaca the largest lake in the country is set in a dramatic landscape and the tour takes you to view the Uros whose civilization predates the Inca and who still live on the floating Reed Islands of the lake. Arequipa is a dramatic city set at the foot of El Misti a giant volcano exceeding 5000m in height. The logical path of the tour allows us to maintain a leisurely pace and take in all the key sites as we head down the coast before heading inland to Arequipa and back north to Machu Pichhu.
