VegiVentures has run holidays in Peru since 1992. 'Peru Inka' visits: Lima, Cusco, Machupicchu, The Sacred Valley, Limatambo, Lake Titicaca and Taquile Island. Focussing on the history of the Inkas, and on their descendants' present-day lives, we travel by bus, train and boat and explore as much as we can on foot. We spend time at Ollantaytambo, the only inhabited Inka city with its irrigation systems still intact. On Lake Titicaca we stay on Taquile Island, as guests of the Taquilenos tribe. Natural ecologists, they willingly share their simple colourful way of life.
You will enjoy delicious local vegetarian/vegan food, prepared especially, for us and the leadership of anthropologist Oda Seedhouse. Oda lives in Peru and is an expert in Andean culture. She is specially interested in indigenous concepts of natural medicine, shamanism, music, dance and ritual, as well as the natural environment. We mainly use local transport and explore as much as we can on foot. Accommodation is in locally owned small hotels, hostels and lodges. Price TBA including all 'ground arrangments' in Peru, excluding flights. We also offer an optional extension to the Nazca Lines. From £2485, exluding flights. Please contact us for full details.
