The Amazon to Machu Picchu escape is an immersive journey that plants you deep in the pounding heart of Peru! The rainforest seemingly vibrates with life, as does the ground below, with mystical history. The treasures are found in an offering to the Earth Mother (Pachamama), dark chocolate, buzzy markets, brilliant macaws and the woven secrets of the Sacred Valley.
In the canopies above, watch for the blur of toucans and macaws streaking through the trees in a rainbow smudge. Let’s not forget about the swinging antics of spider monkeys and curious capuchins. At night, an orchestra of croaking frogs swallows up the darkness. By the river’s edge, the red gleam of a caiman’s eyes will meet your own in equal surprise!
Prepare for a serious sensory experience. The tart tang of your first pisco sour at an interactive cooking class will be permanently locked into your taste bud memory. The spicy soups, fried plantains, empanadas and curious fruits (custard apple! Lúcuma) of the colourful market will definitely shake up your grocery store aisle routine. And let’s not forget about the bean-to-bar chocolate making workshop!
Whether you are lost in the grandeur of The Temple of Qoricancha or transfixed by the otherworldly beauty of Machu Picchu itself, this experience will stay in your mind’s hard drive forever.
