Cusco and the Andes of Peru

Machu Picchu was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. HE Travel has been leading gay tours to Machu Picchu and other sites throughout Peru for over thirty-five years. From the excitement of Lima to the beauty of the Sacred Valley and the charm of Cusco, our intimate tour of Peru is filled with wonder.

Our tour starts in Lima, with a rare look into a private art collection and a tour of South America's oldest colonial home (the family still lives there). We spend two days exploring the Sacred Valley, with its lovely terraced fields and beautiful river views.

Then we head to Machu Picchu, a wonder of human strength and spirit whose mystery still haunts the stones of this great city. Our rare two-night stay is at the renowned Sanctuary Lodge, the only hotel located adjacent to the ruins. We conclude our tour with two nights in Cusco at the Hotel Monasterio (a former monastery, complete with beautiful courtyard), voted as the top hotel in South America by readers of CondeNast Traveler Magazine. This itinerary allows plenty of time for sightseeing and leisure and offers a taste of the best Peru has to offer.

Days 3 - 4 - Lima to Cusco & Sacred Valley
Gay Peru Machu Picchu - Centro Espiritual de los AndesIn the morning we transfer from our Lima hotel to the airport for the scenic one-hour flight over the Andes to Cusco.

Upon arrival at the Cusco Airport, we will enjoy our private air-conditioned ride into the Sacred Valley. We will drive over the Pampa de Anta Pass, then descend a steep mountain road into the Sacred Valley of the Incas. This valley is one of the loveliest valleys on earth. So be on the lookout for llamas, women dressed in colorful clothing and stunning mountain vistas as we make our way through the valley. This first afternoon will be at our leisure.

On Day 4: we will head towards Pisac, a beautiful place where Incan and Colonial influences have reached a perfect balance. This quaint little town is famous for its artisan markets which are full of extraordinarily fine jewelry and ceramic and textile craftwork. Next, we will make our way to the Archaeological Park of Pisac where we will find some amazing architectural structures, including Intiwatana(where the sun is tied). We will also visit the Incan ruins at Ollantaytambo; once guarded by a massive fortress. A day in this beautiful and fertile valley will provide us with a restful interlude between our busy days of sightseeing. Today lunch will be enjoyed at a private hacienda.

 

Days 5 - 6 - Machu Picchu
Gay Peru Machu Picchu viewAfter breakfast, we will drive to Ollanta station where we will board the train to Machu Picchu. Riding along the Urubamba River is an exciting and visually stunning experience. We will pass through narrow gorges and see lovely terraced fields verdant with vegetation high up in the mountains. Upon our arrival, we will make our way, via bus, to the entrance gate of the Machu Picchu citadel.

Here is a complete Inca city high on a mountain saddle, sometimes hidden in a forest of clouds. Its steeply terraced slopes fall away to the river, which rushes through a great hairpin bend 1,200 feet below. The Spaniards supposedly never found it, and for centuries it remained unknown, untouched and overgrown with vegetation. In 1911, Dr. Hiram Bingham rediscovered it and brought it to the world’s attention. Since then, Machu Picchu has attracted travelers, explorers, and, archeologists. Much has been written and revealed about this great city, but much is still debated and unknown.

Gay Machu Picchu stoneworkOver the next two days, we will have plenty of time to contemplate the mystery of this fascinating site. We will walk among the ancient ruins of staircases, temples and a sundial.

Dawn is an incredible sight at Machu Picchu. As the clouds part and the sun appears over the tops of the snow-capped Andean peaks, the light begins to color the ancient stones. Shadows and light transform the ancient city. If you wish, you can hike to the top of Huayna Picchu on Day 6, a challenging climb about an hour and a half long(not recommended when wet), and return to the hotel in time for lunch.

Later today, we will be transferred to the railroad station in the valley, for our return trip to Cusco. The journey will take approximately four hours.

Spring waters still flow through the sites impressive system of fountains and aqueducts.

Trip FAQ

Where does the tour start and end?
This tour starts and ends in Lima, Peru.

 

What are the hotels like?
On our Luxury Machu Picchu Tour, we stay in among the finest hotels in South America. The properties share an emphasis on the high quality of rooms and service, but each is unique in terms of setting, architecture, and views.

 

What is the Activity Level of This Tour?
To fully enjoy this tour, one should be able to walk on uneven surfaces for extended periods and enjoy outdoor activities.

 

What if I am traveling alone?
Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it's usually because they're looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn't have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you'll be traveling with friends. You don't need to pay the single supplement if you're traveling alone. We'll be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself.
