Where lunch and dinner is not included we'll visit a variety of cafes and restaurants. Peruvian cuisine has developed a reputation for its flavours and originality and it’s well worth trying out a few of the local delicacies. Amongst these are ceviche (a spicy dish of seafood or fish marinated in lime juice), lomo saltado (a Peruvian take on a beef stir-fry) and various hearty soups such as the delicious quinoa soup. Other dishes include roasted cuy (guinea pig), Alpaca steak, and to drink, the national beverage: Pisco Sour.

Route 13 daagse fietsvakantie Cycle Peru: Machu Picchu & Titicaca

On this tour we cycle between some of the world’s most iconic travel destinations: from the truly spectacular mountain top city of Machu Picchu and the high altitude plains of the Altiplano to Cusco, the buzzing capital of the ancient Inca Empire. Pedalling past impressive Inca ruins like Sacsayhuaman, Pisac and Moray, our route hugs the Urubamba River as we cycle amongst 4000m peaks and learn about the country’s rich and fascinating history whilst staying with local families. Ending our tour on the shores of the vast Lake Titicaca, we visit the floating reed islands of Uros and discover the ‘folklore capital’ of Puno where we can stock up on hand-made souvenirs before flying home.
