12 Days / 11 Nights
Kuelap & Northern Peru Tour
Visit Chan Chan, Sipan, Sican, Moche and other archeological treasures in Kuelap, Trujillo, and Chiclayo. These remnants of peoples who thrived before the time of the Incas include some of the greatest archeological discoveries of the 20th century, and archaeologists are still digging up artifacts and trying to make sense of these important cultures of Northern Peru. The thick stone walls of the Kuelap fortress were built on a hilltop well before the time of the Inca Empire. This tour does not only revolve around archaeology but also wildlife. There are fabulous bird watching opportunities at sites such as Chaparri, Gocta Waterfalls and Huembo (close to Moyobamba).
