A very important feature of our trips is the limited group size, as nature expeditions are best experienced with fewer travelers for more intimate wildlife encounters and a lighter footprint on the environment.

Physical Requirements
The Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu portion of this trip takes place at elevations mostly between 8,000 and 11,000 feet, and guests should be prepared for possible challenges in adjusting to high altitudes. The journey begins with a flight from sea level to Cusco at 11,200 feet, where we will have several hours of sightseeing over two days as we adjust to the elevation. The relative lack of oxygen at this elevation may manifest in altitude-sickness symptoms that can include headaches, dizziness, tiredness, nausea and vomiting during the first few hours or days of the trip. Hydration and rest usually help symptoms to resolve, though participants may wish to talk with their doctor about taking along a prescription for a medication such as Diamox to better manage potential physical reactions to high altitude. Our visit to Machu Picchu, at an elevation of 8,000 feet, involves walking over uneven natural terrain and up and down irregular stone stairs within the ruins complex. While walking options of varying lengths are provided, guests should be able to comfortably walk one mile and/or for one hour in such conditions. They must also be able to get in and out of vehicles with ease. We do not recommend this trip for travelers with heart or respiratory ailments or those with bad ankles, knees or hips.

On the Amazon portion of this trip, much of our wildlife viewing is done from small motorized skiffs. Getting in and out of the skiffs can sometimes feel a bit unsteady, especially with the current of the river. Some excursions involve walking on nature trails through the rain forest. Guests should be able to walk one to two miles in high humidity over uneven ground with overgrown roots, in order to participate in all excursions. Walking on muddy trails or through standing water may be necessary at times. All activities on this trip are optional, though minimum mobility levels must be met in order to participate.
Important Information About This Trip
This trip combines visits to one of nature’s most legendary realms with one of history’s most astonishing discoveries. We have selected the best accommodations in the region, chosen for their comfort and authenticity. Guests should be prepared for humid, sticky conditions in the Amazon as well as high altitudes on the Machu Picchu portion of the trip.
Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive in Lima anytime on Day 1 and depart in the late evening (after 11:30 pm*) from Lima on the final day. Generally, international flights depart Lima in the late evening. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as we are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.

*When you are ready to book flights please call our office because this suggested time may have changed based on the schedule of the domestic flight from Iquitos to Lima. On some departures we may recommend departing as early as 10:30 pm and on others not until after 12:30 am the next day.
