Machu Picchu: this magical citadel of Machu Picchu accessible only by train or on foot along the Inca Trails. Trains to Machu Picchu depart from the city of Cusco or Ollantaytambo and take passengers to Machu Picchu Pueblo (formerly Aguas Calientes). From there they take a bus for about 20 minutes to reach the archaeological complex at the top of the mountain. Both modes of transport offer spectacular scenery as they wind between snow-capped mountains, rivers and scenic countryside.
The Nazca Lines: Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994, the origin of these mysterious designs is said to have been created by the people of Nazca between 500 BC and 500 AD. Their exact purpose has never been discovered. The designs range from simple shapes to detailed representations of a monkey, fish, whale, birds and other animals, as well as trees and flowers. The only real way to appreciate the size and scope of the Nazca Lines is to see them from the air.
Lake Titicaca: the highest navigable lake in the world. According to Andean mythology, the children of the Sun god and founders of the Inca Empire, emerged from its waters. Lake Titicaca contains many islands whose inhabitants still carry on the customs and traditions of their ancestors, such as the Uros community who live on “floating islands” made of totora reeds.
Northern Peruvian Amazon (Loreto): There are many ways to explore the Peruvian Amazon, but one of the most popular and unique ways is to cruise the Amazon River in a small boat or make the canopy to admire the tropical forest above the exuberant vegetation. Boat trips with binoculars in hand are typical of this region. The Victoria Amazonica, a giant water lily, is characteristic of Loreto. There is plenty to see during both seasons of the region, and both offer a rich diversity in terms of plant and animal life. This region is also home to the three-toed sloth and the rare and beautiful pink dolphins.
