Machu Picchu mysteries

Day 5

Exploring mystical Machu Picchu with your family

The abandoned Incan "city" of Machu Picchu in Peru's Andes Mountains is a mystery. No one knows for sure why it was built, some 500 years ago – or why it was deserted. In fact, this ancient citadel was hidden from the western world until Hiram Bingham, an archaeologist from Yale University who was searching for other ruins from the empire of the Incas, stumbled upon it by accident in 1911. Maybe you and your family will figure it out as you explore this amazing maze of a place, with what experts guess was a palace, dungeons, and over 100 staircases.

Swimming with sea lions

Day 2

Go for a swim with playful sea lions off the Peruvian coast

From Lima, you’ll set off on a boat cruise to the coastal waters off San Lorenzo Island and don your wet suits for a swim with sea lions. South American sea lions like the ones you’ll meet in Peru live in small colonies scattered along the region’s rocky coastlines. They breed on beaches and like hanging out in marinas and wharves, and on flat, rocky cliffs where tidepools are found. These aquatic mammals feed on fishes like hake and anchovies, as well as on squid and octopus. But when it comes to swimming with friendly visitors like you, they’re as playful as can be.

Painting Peruvian pottery

Day 4

Secrets of ancient artisans at a Peruvian pottery studio

In Peru's Sacred Valley, a visit to a renowned pottery studio reveals some of the hidden meanings behind the sacred symbols that ancient Peruvian artisans used to decorate their creations... and offers you a hands-on opportunity to put your creative spirit to use and paint your own inspired work of ceramic art.

I loved it because I met new people that were nice. We also explored Macchu Picchu which was really fun!
