Culture and Nature Full of Colour

Lima Cusco Sacred Valley of the Incas Manu National Park

This Cusco and Manu National Park tour is a great mix to enjoy the culture and nature of our beatiful Peru. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit Peru and have a colourful experience with its landscapes and many animal species.

A long time ago, Cusco’s Main Square was the central point of the Inca Empire. The four roads that linked the whole Inca Empire met at this point. The Inca Empire spread from Ecuador, part of Colombia to the north of Chile and Argentina and included the entire territories of Peru and Bolivia. The ruins, temples, churches, mansions and the varied architecture make Cusco a showcase that displays all the cultures and eras from our country: Pre-Inca, Inca, Colonial and Republican.

Cusco is an unforgettable destination, full of history and culture and a splendid heritage. It is a mandatory destination for everyone visiting Peru.

Cusco is as well the starting point for the tours to the Machu Picchu Inca citadel.

Located at the southeast of Peru, Manu covers the Cusco and Madre de Dios regions and has a 1,716,295.22-ha area. It is the core zone of the Manu Biosphere Reserve and was declared by UNESCO as a Natural World Heritage in 1987. It is inhabited by 30 Quechua-speaking and farming communities and several native Amazonian populations such as the Matsiguenka, Amahuaca, Yaminahua, Piro, Amarakaeri, Huashipaire and Nahua. The park contributes to the acknowledgement and protection of cultural diversity preserving the archaeological heritage through investigation, education and leisure.

We can find more than 1,000 bird species such as harpy eagles, jabirus, Orinoco geese, Andean cocks-of-the-rocks and roseate spoonbills; 200 mammal species as the yellow-tailed woolly monkey, spider monkeys, river otters, jaguars, oncillas, spectacled bears, Andean deer and more than 100 bat species.  We can also find trees that are more than 45 meters high and 3 meters in diameter, the lupuna or kapoktree, the cecropia, the balsa tree, the cedar, the tornillo and the strangler fig stand out.

**All our programs can be modified according to your requirements on duration, interests, activities, flight reservations or other additional destinations.**
