LSP0003361 - Cusco - Zona arqueológica de Ollantaytambo

Day 4 | Sacred Valley

Today it’s time to delve deeper into the Sacred Valley and be transported to the age of the Inca, as you discover the superbly preserved archaeological sites of Pisac, Moray, and Ollantaytambo. These magnificent ancient wonders – with their terraces, solid walls and water channels – are worth the trip to Peru alone, so be sure to soak up their majesty at your own pace. Lunch comes courtesy of a local hacienda, known for its freshly farmed produce and sweeping Sacred Valley views while you dine. The perfect setting.

5 Macu Picchu Citadel - Atelier South America

Day 5 | Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu/Cusco

Often voted the World’s Top Travel Destination, day 5 takes you to Machu Picchu, a place that has captured the imagination of countless visitors over the years. Once here, it’s easy to see why. Having travelled aboard one of the most scenic rail journeys in Peru, to the town of Aguas Calientes at the foot of Machu Picchu, you’ll then enjoy The Lost City and all its magic on a private guided tour. Later, find your own quiet corner of the Citadel with free time to explore on your own, taking in those Sacred Valley views all the while, before returning to Cusco by rail on another breathtaking train journey. Upon arrival in Cusco, you’ll be taken to your boutique hotel for check in.

6 Sacsayhuaman Stone Walls - Atelier South America

Day 6 | Cusco

The ancient sites and highlights around Cusco are endless, and you’ll witness a mix of both iconic ruins and hidden gems during your time here. Fully rested after a relaxing evening in this unmatched city, begin today with a tour of Downtown Cusco, the markets, famous Cathedral and hidden alleyways before a trip to the sensational archeological sites of Qorikancha Temple (the most important of its kind in the Inca Empire) and the imposing Sacsayhuaman Fortress. This afternoon can be spent at leisure to either soak up the atmosphere of Old Cusco or visit Tipon, a stunning ruin of Inca water channels and pools in the Southern Valley.

7 Andahuaylillas Church, Cusco South Valley - Atelier South America

Day 7 | Cusco/Puno

The next leg of your Complete Peru and Bolivia Tour takes you from the ancient secrets of Cusco to the mythical shores of Lake Titicaca, which straddles both countries. You’ll travel by road, stopping off at viewpoints and lesser-visited towns and ruins like Andahuaylillas, Racchi, and Pucara. The journey will take most of the day but it’s an absorbing experience in itself – with a boutique hotel in Puno, beside Lake Titicaca itself, your reward on the other side.

8 Sun Island in Lake Crossing - Bolivia - Atelier South America

Day 8 | Titicaca Lake/La Paz

Lake Titicaca has been a sacred place for Peruvians and Bolivians over many centuries. Some say the floating islands of the lake even kept native peoples safe from invading Spanish Conquistadors in the 16th century. It’s a beautiful location too, the highest navigable lake in the world surrounded by hills and dotted with islands. You’ll get to see it all on a relaxing boat ride through the reeds and on to Huatajata, historical Sun Island, the lakeshore town of Copacapaba and finally, La Paz on the Bolivian side.

9 La Paz City - Atelier South America

Day 9 | La Paz

Among other things, La Paz is known for the dramatic mountainscape that surrounds this characterful city, your backdrop for day 9 of your tour. In the company of an expert local guide, you can visit impressive colonial buildings that house exhibitions and interesting artifacts like the Juan de Vargas Museum, Murillo House, and the Museum of Gold. There’s chance to see the city from above at the Killi Killi Lookout, or on a cable car ride, and take a short drive to the Moon Valley for impossibly ornate rock formations that were once a formidable mountain. The main highlight comes at the Pre-Inca archaeological site of Tiwanaku, to witness a lesser-known side of Bolivia’s own beguiling history.

Uyuni Saltflat - Bolivia - Atelier South America

Day 10 | La Paz/Uyuni

From bustling city streets to one of the most extraordinary landscapes in South America, if not the world. We take you to Uyuni, famous for the ethereal Uyuni Salt Flats but home to so much more besides. You’ll take a domestic flight from La Paz and have the day to explore part of this 10,0000 sqm expanse of perfectly flat, mirror-like salt plains – itself the remnants of a dried-up prehistoric lake – must be seen to be believed. The skewed sense of perspective the Uyuni Salt Flats are known is a lot of fun, though stunningly beautiful too. And there’s more. Further stops include the giant cacti of Incahuasi Island in the middle of the desert, the ancient ruins (and mummies) of Pukara de Ayke, Thunupa Volcano, and even a luxury hotel made only from salt. It’s a day like no other. Meals included: breakfast Note: Between December and April the salt flats are still accessible but can be flooded, with access to Incahuasi Island, Pucara de Ayque’s Mummies and Puerto Chuvica being restricted.

11 Pulacayo Train Cementery - Uyuni - Atelier South America

Day 11 | Uyuni/La Paz

Having spent the night under the starry skies of Uyuni, you may have chance to visit the so-called Train Cemetery, and one last natural spectacle at Ojos de Agua before your journey back to La Paz. Upon arrival in La Paz, enjoy the rest of the day at leisure or take in some of the top spots you may have missed on your first visit here.

12 La Paz City - Atelier South America

Day 12 | La Paz

As your trip comes to a close, an Atelier concierge will take you to La Paz Airport in time for your onward flight home, full of priceless memories of Bolivia.
