    Lasso a wild west adventure at heart…

    Jackson Hole, Wyoming is what the West is all about. Cowboys still saddle up their horses before dawn to tend to chores, and wild elk, bison and moose still roam the land. The town of Jackson is like a scene out of an old western movie, with wooden plank sidewalks, old-time stagecoach stops, elk antler arches adorning the town square and plenty of wild west saloons. Jackson is full of great shops, fine art galleries and a variety of restaurants and watering holes. Then there’s the skiing. Although best known for its vertical drop of over 4,000 feet, Jackson Hole is also legendary for powder runs, breathtaking views and terrain to suit everyone. There are 2,500 acres of slopes and runs, and that doesn’t include the back country. When not skiing or enjoying the town, you can snowshoe into Grand Teton National Park, snowmobile into Yellowstone National Park, swim the Granite Hot Springs, or view the incredible National Elk herd on a sleigh ride.   

    LODGING: The newly renovated Forty-Niner Inn is located in downtown Jackson Hole, a few blocks from the Town Square and just steps from many shops, bars and restaurants. Amenities include complimentary continental breakfast, indoor and outdoor hot tubs and complimentary transportation to and from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

    All rooms include Daily Breakfast, TV, Mini Fridge, Wet bar & Microwave

    Marvel at ancient wonders and modern culture during this once in a lifetime trip. Check Machu Picchu off your bucket list!  Immerse yourself in Peru!

    Lima

    Along the Pacific coast of Peru lies Lima, a cosmopolitan capital city and anachronistic melting pot of Spanish Colonial architecture built directly over ancient Incan foundations. We’ll discover some of the country’s best museums, churches, historic plazas and bustling shopping areas—including a private tour of the famously yellow Baroque Church of San Francisco.  We’ll also visit the Archaeological Museum, which offers an overview of Peru’s fascinating history, from its superb array of Incan artifacts to impressive collections of ceramics, gold, and textiles.

    Machu Picchu  

    Never found by the Spanish conquistadors, Machu Picchu was known only to local people until Yale professor Hiram Bingham was led to the ruins in 1911 and described it for the world in his book The Lost City of the Incas. Located on a mountaintop 8,000 feet above sea level   in the Peruvian Andes, the city was built with residential, military, and religious areas. Our small group will visit the spectacular ruins twice, allowing us for a deeper exploration of the site after the crowds are gone. We’ll witness the Intihuatana (a sundial-like megalith), the Temple of the Sun, and the Room of the Three Windows in Machu Picchu’s Sacred District.

    Cuzco & the Sacred Valley

    With an elevation of 10,900 feet, Cuzco is literally (and figuratively) breathtaking. The Inca called it the “navel of the world,” as it was the center of their universe and the premiere city in their culture. The ancients may be gone now, but they left behind an abundance of remarkable ruins in the towering Andean peaks and deep within Sacred Valley. We’ll discover Cuzco’s ancient sites, explore modern Andean culture with a visit to Chinchero, a weaving village high in the mountains, as well as take a rafting trip the Urubama River and a train ride through the Sacred Valley.

      

    PRICE INCLUDES: Includes international airfare / airport transfers/ government taxes / fees and airline fuel charges, all land transportation and 2 internal flights, accommodations for 10 nights, 24 meals (daily breakfast, 8 lunches and 6 dinners – including 1 home-hosted lunch), 6 small group activities, gratuities for local guides / drivers / luggage porters, exploring in a small group of 16 people!

    PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS: Not appropriate for travelers using wheelchairs, walkers, or other mobility aids.  You must be able to walk 3 miles unassisted and participate in 6-8 hours of physical activity each day.  We reserve the right to restrict participation, or in some circumstances send travelers home, if their limitations impact the group’s experience.  Altitude - 7 full days at altitudes between 7,000 – 12,000 feet.

    PACKAGE PRICE:    $4,749 per person.  Price based on 2 people in a hotel room.
