SAS Travel Peru

Overview

The lifestyle of the Aymara is one where men, women and children live without the superficial trappings of western civilisation. Working in unison with the land, lake, family and neighbors. Here, to be lazy is a sin. People will constantly be working their fields, women attending to daily chores and dressed in the most beautiful traditional garments, the men will be walking the trails drop spinning or knitting intricate patterns into their world famous woven garments. Each tells a story and you will be fascinated by each while you eat probably the best trout you have ever tasted on Taquile Island before returning to Puno!
Then top it off with the beauty of Chivay and the splendor of the Condors. Finally stunning journey through the mountainous areas to Arequipa the white City.Very beautifully located at the base of the conical volcano Misti!

SAS Travel Peru

Is it for me?

HIGHEST navigable lake and DEEPEST canyon in the world.

This package is 2 individual tours put together to form the extended package with transfers and transport and accommodation so we are not going to cancel on you at the last minute saying we don´t have enough people for a total package tour. This is a fairly important guarantee these days and the reason we run it like this. Also the idea that you meet lots of different people in different tours not just a package where people start the tour Day 1 and travel with you the entire journey.
It also means you have specialised guides in each different area so each place whether it be the jungle, Machu Picchu, Colca Canyon or Lake titicaca etc they will really know what they are talking about!
