Day 1: Arrival in Lima

Upon arrival at the Lima airport, our representative will meet you and show you to your airport hotel.

Overnight in Lima.

*Note: If you would like to explore Lima, just let us know and we can customize your itinerary any way you like.

Day 2: Arrival in Puerto Maldonado

Our representative will meet you at the your hotel, for a transfer to the airport. We catch an flight from Lima to Puerto Maldonado (flights not included in price). Upon your arrival our representative will take you to port to catch out boat to our eco lodge in the jungle. As you leave the city of Puerto Maldonado behind, you’ll soon be enveloped in the completely different world of the surrounding rainforest as you travel up the Tambopata River, the jungle’s canopy towering on either side.

Upon arrival at the lodge, you’ll have time to settle in and relax as well as meet your guide and learn about the variety of activities that you will enjoy during your stay. Many of the lodges are located within the territory of the Ese’eja native community, and are built with the same materials and architectural techniques as those used by native communities throughout the Amazon. In the evening, you’ll enjoy a delicious dinner and have the rest of the evening at your leisure.

Day 3 : Amazon Tour

Today is all about jungle exploration. Mornings in the jungle always start early and today you’ll set out at dawn for your first Amazon adventure. Today, you may be able to spot caimans, turtles, hoatzins, toucans, and–if you’re lucky– the endangered giant river otters that can reach a length of six feet! Morning tends to be the best time of the day to see a variety of wildlife. You’ll then return to the lodge for lunch, before setting out for another adventure with your expert naturalist guide. This afternoon will focus on flora, and your guide will walk with you through the forest, pointing out hidden jungle inhabitants and numerous indigenous plants.

After dinner, you’ll head out into the jungle again for a night walk. Once the sun goes down, the jungle comes to life with a completely new assortment of nocturnal creatures that come out. Visitors often say that experiencing the jungle at night, on a dark trail with only a flashlight, is an unforgettable experience. Alternatively, you can simply relax to the sounds of the jungle in your cabana hammock.

Note: The exact order of activities may vary due to weather conditions and other considerations. Your Amazon guide will provide details about the activities that you will enjoy each day.

Day 4: Amazon Tour

After breakfast, you’ll go for a jungle hike to learn more about how the forest is used by the local communities in everyday life. During the hike, you may see toucans as well as numerous other species of birds, different species of monkeys and even occasional sloths.

You’ll return to the lodge for lunch and will have time to rest and relax before setting out for another tour. This time, you’ll learn more about human life in the jungle, examining the type of fruits and vegetables that local communities grow. Return before dark to the jungle lodge for your last evening in the Peruvian rainforest.

Note: The exact order of activities may vary due to weather conditions and other considerations. Your Amazon guide will provide details about the activities that you will enjoy each day.

Day 5: Fly to Cusco

Say goodbye to the jungle as you make your way back to town and the airport for your flight to Cusco. Upon arrival at the Cusco airport, our representative will meet you for the drive to the historic center. On the way, spot examples of Spanish colonial architecture constructed upon the remains of ancient Inca palaces and temples.

The city is at a high altitude (3 400m/11 155ft), so you spend the remainder of the day taking it easy as you acclimatize. Overnight in Cusco.

Day 6: Cusco City Tour

We will meet you upon arrival at the Cusco airport as part of complimentary service and drive you to your hotel. On arrival, you have time to adjust to the new altitude, settle in and familiarize yourself with your new surroundings.

Later, your guide will pick you up at your hotel, carving out a bit of time for a quick briefing on things to expect and look forward to in the upcoming days. Then, our expect guide will take you to sites like picturesque Cusco Cathedral, the revered Temple of the Sun (Coricancha) and the structural marvel of Sacsayhuaman. After our informative historical tour, we head back to your hotel for an early night. You can explore the city further on your own if you wish. Cusco is a safe and welcoming city with a lot to discover. We suggest trying Cusco by night in the stunning Plaza De Armas or the bohemian San Blas, both of which boast a vibrant nightlife.

Enjoy a leisurely evening visiting the countless museums, sampling the local cuisine or listening to the calming Andean music.

Day 7: Sacred Valley Tour

Day 7two is jam packed with adventure and discovery. Our guide will pick you up from your hotel in private vehicle for a scenic drive through the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Along the way you get to enjoy incredible mountain vistas, farming terraces and Urubamba River flanking you on your left. Our first stop is Pisac, only 45 minutes outside of the city. We visit the bustling and colorful Pisac market before exploring the agriculturally significant archeological site that overlooks the city. Enroute, we stop in the small town of Urubamba for lunch. Lunch is at a carefully selected restaurant that´s vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Later, we head over to the historical salt mines, where the locals are still producing salt the same way their ancestors have done for many generations. After, we stop at the fascinating Inca site of Moray, also known as ” The Greenhouse of the Incas.” Finally, we drive to Ollantaytambo to explore the Archeological site that´s famous for being the last resistance of the Incas against the Spanish conquest. We then have dinner and settle in for the night for our big day tomorrow.

Depending on your train departure time, there may be some time for shopping, or sightseeing.

The Expedition train will take you back to Ollantaytambo at 2:55pm or 3:20pm, following the spectacular Urubamba River.

10/10 Amazing experience

If you’re thinking about which agency to use, look no further- Ray and Jimmy went well above and beyond and made this a memorable, safe, fun, and professional experience.

Ray is the most knowledgeable guide I’ve ever had in any country for any excursion - during both the Short Inka Trail and the actual tour of Machu Picchu, Ray’s expertise shined through in his ability to give us a detailed background on every aspect of the history, climate, nature, flora, animals.. anything!

Likewise, Ray and Jimmy were truly the friendliest, kindest hosts that I could have imagined our group having.

Thank you both so much and I will definitely book with you again if (when) I come back!

Awesome experience!!

Did the 2 day Inca trail with Ray and Jimmy they were great and knowledgeable. Ray not only guided us along trail to Machu Picchu but also was an excellent photographer and taught us the history. It was a group of 10 and we had a great time. Even everything going on in Peru, we always felt in good hands.

Short Inca Trial (2-Day)

This tour was the perfect experience for our (group of 10) short trip to Peru. The trail was sometimes challenging, but the views and history made it all worth it. Ray and Jimmy were our guides and imparted sooo much knowledge about the history of Peru, Inca, and beyond. I would definitely recommend!

It was perfect! On the first day we had a great time exploring the Sacred Valley and see the main attractions and learn about the history of this beautiful place.

I would definitely recommend the short Inka trail, I think it was the best way to get to know Machu Picchu and the surrounding area. We arrived at Machu Picchu when most of the crowd was gone and it felt really special.

You won’t regret booking with this tour company, especially if Liz Montesinos is your guide. My boyfriend and I did the 4 day Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain (private) tour. The tour covered everything; from transportation, hotels, meals, tickets and entrance fees, to stops at local places we would’ve never known to go or check out. We did a private tour because for us we felt this would help us get the most out of our time and experience in Peru

Best mix of adventure, history and nature: Sacred Valley & Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

4-day trekking option seemed too intense for us, but we still wanted to experience the entrance to Machu Picchu through the ancient Inka trail, so we opted for Orange Nation’s combination of Sacred Valley & Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. I couldn’t be more happy about our decision.

We booked and paid the deposit to Orange Nation / Sam travel for the 4 day Inca Trail and Machu Pichu trip back in 2019. But we couldn't travel in 2020 and 2021 - but the company honoured our agreement and so we came back in 2022.

My girl and i did the Machu Pichu trek tour with Orange Nation. It was seriously the most amazing experience that we'll never forget. Gorgeous views! The long trek was worth the amazing view. The tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. We considered other tours but chose Orange Nation because we liked the idea of smaller groups and this was definitely worth it. I will be using Orange Nation again next year when I come back to Peru!

Wow, what a wonderful trekking experience! My trip to Peru was amazing thanks to this awesome tour that i took with Orange Nation. I did multiple tours with this company. I'm a solo traveler and everyone in my group was always still friendly and did not make me feel left out. I loved going off the beaten track with this company. It's much better to pay extra to go off the path for the quality experience of this amazing guided tour They definitely helped guide us and gave us a quality experience with a small group and paid special attention to each one of us. I highly recommend using Orange Nation for your next tour in Peru!
