Days 3-4 Nazca
Take an optional trip to the Paracas National Reserve, a haven for pelicans, red-footed boobies, flamingos and sea lions. See the dramatic sand dunes of Huacachina before heading to one of the world's most mysterious archaeological sites, the Nazca Lines. Discover the desert cemetery of Chauchilla; the arid conditions of the desert have naturally mummified the remains of the people buried here.
Day 5 Arequipa
Built at the foot of El Misti Volcano, Arequipa's colonial charm is enchanting. Marvel at the gleaming buildings made from pale volcanic rock.
Days 6-7 Chivay/Colca Canyon
Spot llamas, alpacas and their cousins - vicunas - on the way to Chivay.
