DESCRIPTION:This is one of the best and most visually diverse expeditions you could go on.
The photographic opportunities are beyond measure.
Our trip is ideal for
adventurous photographers looking to experience the best of southern
Peru in just 10 days. It
is designed to be comfortable and yet allow us to visit places where many thought
only National Geographic photographers could go.
Although comfortable, this is not a cruise-ship experience. We will be immersed in the natural world, surrounded every day by the local culture.
Each photo will have a story to tell. Use your experiences to create pictures that truly speak their viewers. Show the world what it's like to share chicha
at a local restaurant, barter for a handmade alpaca sweater, buddy up to a
llama and experience the beauty of this exotic locale. We'll sit on a floating
island, watch butterflies dance, sense the ancient Incan presence as an Andean condor lifts off a cliff, and glimpse the mystery of the sun-lit Inti
Start the trip by flying up to Cusco, the former Incan capitol in the Andes. This is a vibrant city full of culture, history, good restaurants and fun nightlife. Walk the ancient paths of the Incans through their religious centers. Watch sunrise light up Machu Picchu. Then sit back, relax and enjoy one of the most unique train rides in the world. Board a boat and explore the amazing reed islands of Lake Titicaca. With the help of our photography expert and local guides, capture today's Peru in photos you'll treasure for years to come.
