INTI, HIGHLIGHTS OF PERU
12 Days / 11 Nights
Inti , the sun, the main deity the Incas worshiped throughout the empire. In the Andes he is life and strength. Fill your eyes, watch him rise surrounded by the mountains of Machu Picchu, or watch him set in Lake Titicaca's horizon.
On this trip to Peru you will visit the main destinations in the southern Andes, the Colca Canyon, the city of Arequipa. You will spend one night at Lake Titicaca and, of course, the unforgettable Cusco and the sacred city of Machu Picchu.

- Local Services – We engage locally-owned and operated services thereby supporting local people and not using long and carbon-intensive supply chains.
- 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.
