Day 01:

Lofty Arequipa, at an elevation of 2,380 meters, is Peru's second biggest city. It has the spectacular El Misti Volcano looming on the horizon.

Day 02:

Head out early for Colca Canyon, making time to spot in timeless towns en route, such as Maca, Yanque, Pinchollo and Achoma. The Cruz del Condor Antahuilque and the Choquetico lookouts provide terrific views. Look out for condors.

Day 03:

Take a 25-minute flight to Cusco. Have a tour of the ancient settlement of Cusco.

Visit Incan and Spanish structures. A Tourist Ticket will allow you to see many museums and other attractions in and around Cusco.

Machu Picchu! Rise early for the 6am train from Cusco to Aguas Calientes at the foot of Machu Picchu. Enjoy shopping for souvenirs and eating well plus of course touring the grand Incan edifice. Then it's a scenic train ride back to Cusco around 3:30pm. Arrival time in Cusco is 7:30pm.
