Itinerary Description:

Ker & Downey’s Uncharted Peru begins in the country’s capital of Lima, where travelers will receive an insider’s glimpse into what makes it one of South America’s leading gastronomic and cultural capitals. Head off on a walking tour in Barranco to explore the area’s many art galleries, then dive into the gastronomical highlights with your dedicated food expert, who will introduce you to authentic Peruvian ceviche and artisan beer.

Your private jet journey will then continue along the Peruvian coast with an aerial flight above the mysterious Nazca Markings. From your five-star Paracas accommodations, indulge in a mystical dinner under the desert stars and a full-day discovery of the oldest and newest Pisco distilleries in the Americas, tasting more than four centuries of Peruvian heritage along the way.

Next, take flight to Arequipa, where intense gastronomy and ancient architecture await. You will have the opportunity to dine in multiple colonial restaurants and taste the offerings of three of the most renowned picanterías of the region before jetting off to the shores of Lake Titicaca. Your private jet will have you at the world’s highest navigable lake in time for sundowner cocktails and the next day’s sunrise explorations of the floating Uros Islands. It is here where you will see why Andean cultures believe Lake Titicaca is the birthplace of the sun.

Trade in your private jet for an exclusive railroad journey aboard Peru’s only luxury sleeper train: the Belmond Andean Explorer. The train will transport you past condors flying through sweeping valleys and snow-capped mountains, while allowing you to dine on gourmet cuisine and stop at points of interest along the way.

Your final destination is the Sacred Valley of the Incas, a succession of picturesque Andean towns, agricultural terraces, archaeological sites, and farms growing the world’s most famous corn variety: the Giant White Corn. Visits to Sacsayhuaman, Maras, and Moray reveal the iconic highlights of this region, while seven-course hacienda lunches and private Mother Earth ceremonies offer unique insight into the cultural heritage of the Sacred Valley people.

Your Uncharted Peru adventures culminate with the wonders of Machu Picchu and Cusco. Sit back in your private presidential carriage aboard the exclusive-use Inca Princess train car, where you will enjoy fine regional wines and an exquisite tasting menu as you soak in the Andean colors passing by your window. Upon arrival in Aguas Calientes, your expert Machu Picchu guide will be on hand to reveal the fascinating ancient history, theories, and beauty of one of the “New Seven Wonders of the World”.

Before you know it, you will be back in Cusco delving again into the heart of your setting—trying the Peruvian superfood juice of San Medro Market, wandering the Plaza de Armas, and making your own chocolate in a private “Bean to Bar” workshop—all prior to boarding your private jet for your final journey home.
