COLCA, TITICACA & INCA TRAIL
15 Days / 14 Nights
A tour that is worth every minute of your time: walk around the "White City" and discover its hideouts, sail in the Titicaca Lake, absorb the energy that Cusco city still preserves and let the Amazon jungle captivate your five senses.
In this trip you will go up to the mountains of the Andes to see the Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca Plateau and, after visiting Cusco, experience the Inca trail which will lead you to the sacred city of Machu Picchu (Old Mountain in Quechua).

Local Transport – We use local public transport wherever we can to reduce fuel usage per passenger.
Local Food and Local Goods – We endeavour to include and strongly encourage our travellers to eat locally produced food and goods. This reduces the ’embodied energy’.
Water Bottles – We encourage our passengers to refill a water bottle from water ‘bubblers’ where available to avoid unnecessary purchasing of bottled water and the subsequent waste disposal issues.
Economic Empowerment – Economic empowerment of local communities through tourism can help improve education and health services, water supplies and sanitation and reduce dependence on non-sustainable livelihoods.
Local Employment – We use local leaders and guides so that we learn about the culture and way of life directly from those who live it and put money into local hands and economies. We can particularly learn from indigenous rural communities about their relationship to the land and how they’ve practiced sustainable agriculture for centuries.
