For Christmas you can follow the masses and head to any number of ski lodges or you can head down the less beaten track. Or more precisely, up the beaten patch, along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
Explore the culture of ancient Peru while experiencing the culture of modern day Peru. Voga Travel offers several destination packages to Machu Picchu in a small escorted tour group for a rich cultural experience. For nine days experience the stunning landscapes of Lima, Cuzco, Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca.
Your tour will start by taking in the beautiful colonial architecture of Lima, known as the City of Kings. Then you’ll explore Cuzco, the gateway to Machu Picchu, the new seventh wonder of the world. Cuzco is considered the oldest inhabitated city of the Americas and was the ancient capital of the Incas. The Spanish Conquistadores built colonial mansions, cathedrals and churches in the old palaces of the Incas during the 16th century. Those ruins remain and exist as stunning reminders of what once was.
From Cuzco you’ll have the chance to explore Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas. Located high in the Andes Mountains, Machu Picchu was a religious center that today is accessed by train or along the Inca Trail, which you can trek on foot.
Your expedition will continue with a visit to Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world. Lake Titicaca is home to the Uros Islands, a unique area where people still practice the ancient customs that very few people get a chance to see. You’ll see local people, wildlife like llamas and alpacas and, of course spectacular vistas.
