HOPSTAGE 1: Copacabana to Cusco

Now you’ve enjoyed Copacabana, the beautiful town on the highest lake in the world, it’s time to move on to Cusco, the enthralling city famously known as the gateway to Machu Picchu. Full of culture and history, Cusco is a city not to be passed through quickly.

The Cultural Route

During this part of the journey there is a Peru/Bolivia border crossing, where our guides will assist you with the necessary paperwork and immigration processes for crossing. Check with our office before departure for nationalities that may require additional VISA requirements. Please have your passport and immigration slips in order. Overstay fines should be paid before leaving.

Once over the border, we will have a quick dinner stop in the charming center of Puno before the overnight leg from Puno to Cusco.
