Southern Peru

A journey to Southern Peru visiting the Coastal Reserve of Paracas and the famous Ballestas Islands; the enigmatic Nazca Lines, ancient lines and figures drawn with spectacular perfection: Arequipa, the most beautiful city in Peru. Also known as the white city, Arequipa is a listed as a Cultural World Heritage Site by UNESCO; and finally, Lake Titicaca, the world's highest navigable lake covering an area of 8000 square kilometers. This huge lake straddles the borders of Bolivia and Peru and is home to many islands, each of them with their own characteristics and unique history. The floating islands of the Uros, whose inhabitants descend from one of the oldest known tribes in the Americas, feature typical native huts made from totora reeds. The inhabitants of Taquile Island, are linked to the Aymara culture of nearby Bolivia and welcome people to their homes.

Machu Picchu is known as one of the most spiritual lands in the world, so why not go all out and Om your way through its ruins?
