The Pacific Ocean lies to the west and is a narrow strip of mainly arid plains with a number of valleys that turn to rivers during the rainy season. The Andes Mountains runs parallel to the ocean and provides the highest point in the country. Finally, you can sample excursions into the Amazon rain-forest which accounts for around 60% of the country.

You can expect to be accompanied by local tour guides. You can expect your guide to be knowledgeable about the history of their country and the customs of the Inca people.
