This active Peru family adventure traverses the Andes, the Amazon and the altiplano of Lake Titicaca, exploring the sacred landscapes of ancient people with a family-friendly guide who shares the traditions and daily life of the indigenous Quechuas. Traveling among many distinct native communities, we play and work side-by-side with local families in their fields and their homes, and are invited to participate in ancient ceremonies like a Pago-a-la-Tierra (Payment to the Earth), a ritual reminding us of our common heritage and respect for Pachamama (Mother Earth). Your family will amble among towering Inca ruins, and share footpaths with alpaca and llama hiking the one-day Inca Trail, entering the magical citadel of Machu Picchu like the Incas did through the Intipunku (Gate of the Sun). Cycling back roads of the Sacred Valley, kayaking on Lake Titicaca, and flying on zip-lines through the jungle, on this active family adventure you visit local markets, try your hand at weaving, and sample traditional Andean foods like quinoa, purple potatoes, and choclo, the biggest corn you've ever seen! Guinea pig, anyone? The trip begins in the Sacred Valley of the Incas for easy acclimatization. Family-friendly accommodations include spacious bungalows in the Urubamba Valley, elevated tree houses in the Amazon, and a native guest house in a local village on Taquile Island in Lake Titicaca.
