Miraflores Walking Tour & Flight To Cusco

Sitting in a valley surrounded by the desert is Peru’s capital, Lima. This ancient city is full of colour and history, which is why we are going on a city tour (duh!). Wander around and take in the amazing street art, take your pick at trying some Peruvian dishes, explore Lima’s highlights as we walk Miraflores.

It’s time to say goodbye to Lima and hellooooo Cusco! We catch a short flight to the city of Cusco and check in to our hotel. Cusco is at 3400mts of elevation and is a city which has a mixture of both Incan and Spanish influences; it’s the best of both worlds (literally!). Learn about the heritage of the former capital of the Incan empire and THE gateway to Machu Picchu! It’s now time to get those dancing shoes on, or even better salsa dancing shoes on, after all, you are in Peru, and we’re off to a salsa bar to the dance the night away (test out Cusco’s nightlife ya know). Practice those moves, TruFam!

Next on our list is the ancient Inca and Spanish site of Sacsayhuamán. Marvel at the stones of the Incan wall complex before we finish off the day at a coffee bar with an amazing view of Cusco City Square, reminiscing over our day & watching the world go by!

Rainbow Mountain Trek

Morning campers! We know, we know, it’s early and we are all still half asleep, BUT you know what they say, the early bird catches the worm and trust us, this is well worth it. Guess what; the bus journey is 2 hours so you’ll be able to catch up on sleep until we arrive at our destination which is *drum roll please* the impressive Rainbow Mountain! Fun fact, the locals call it Montaña de 7 Colores! A whopping 5200 metres up in the Andes, the mountain is a sacred and spiritual area to the Incas! Spend the full day trekking up the mountains and taking in the majestic scenery (it looks like it’s straight out of a postcard, trust). Think layers of gold, lavender, red and turqouise and you're on the right track . Known as one of the best things to do in Peru today and an unforgettable experience, you can cross that off your travel list! Check you out.

Do I require a good level of fitness?

We would consider this an active tour, we are doing the 1 day Inca trail and a few more walks after all :) . For example the 1 day Inca Trail Machu Picchu is a 12km (7.5 miles) hike through the Andes in the Cusco region. The maximum altitude reached is 2700m. In preparation: try walking 15kms/ 9 miles in a day or working out in the months leading up to the trek. Don't worry, we always receive different levels of fitness, at the end of the day the important thing is to bring the good vibes & positive attitude and you will make it!

Is Altitude sickness going to affect me?

Altitute sickness is real, that's why we spend 1 whole day walking in cusco to get used to it. The hotel also provides coca leaf tea that is used by the locals to get the body ready. Our only recomendation is to take it easy on arrival and not do many activities on day 1.
