This trip is ideal for adventurous photographers looking to experience the best of southern Peru in just 10 days. It’s designed to be comfortable and yet allow us to visit wonderful, photogenic locations.  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 is sure to have a story to tell. Use your experiences to help create photos that truly speak to your 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 a condor lifts off a cliff and glimpse the mystery of the sun-lit Inti stone.

Start the trip with a diverse tour of Lima, then fly up to the Andes and Cusco, the former Inca capital. From there your private bus will take you on a tour of the Sacred Valley, including Machu Picchu, before returning to Cusco, a vibrant place full of culture, history, good restaurants and fun nightlife. After that,continue this incredible vacation by sitting back and enjoying one of the most scenic bus rides in the world. Then board your boat to explore the amazing reed islands of Lake Titicaca. With the help of our photography expert and local guides, you'll capture the images you've dreamed about.
