Please refer to our website for the additional cost.
Most of the hotels and lodges we use can be described as 3 star accommodation, some of them are categorised as 4 stars.
In smaller towns and villages hotel options are often limited and we might have to use more basic accommodation with a lower or without star rating.
Please note that the star rating in South America is very fluid and can’t be compared to a western standard star rating, however you can be assured of clean, comfortable and well located lodgings.
While in Lima or Cusco, you will typically stay at a Casa Andina hotel, or another property of a similar style.
The Casa Andinas specialise in integrating the characteristics of each destination such as architecture, decoration, gastronomy and music to create an authentic experience for our travellers.
They are centrally located and come with good service and comfort.
While in the jungle the lodges we stay at are basic though comfortable and they beautifully blend into the natural surroundings.
At times, electricity can be sporadic or limited however most of our travellers attest to the joy in being unplugged and in the inky darkness of the Amazon basin (albeit with a torch or candle!).
Expect mosquito nets and at times rooms which are partially open to the outdoors.
Group Size: 4 - 16.
Over 55's Adventures.


  • On this complete panorama of South America we combine the cultural highlights with time in the Amazon jungle and a spectacular day walks in the Andes. Exploring the cultural dimensions of our journey we travel from Buenos Aires, the vibrant Paris of South America, and the magnificent Iguazu Falls to Lima. We continue onto Cusco, with its endearing Inca and Spanish heritage and La Paz with its colourful markets and live music clubs. By contrast, the more active stages of the program will provide further enduring memories. In the rainforest of the Amazon jungle, we undertake gentle canoe trips in search of the prolific birdlife, while in the Andes we trek on ancient pathways. In the company of our experienced guides we follow sections of what were once ancient Inca Trails past traditional villages before finally ascending to the cloud forest to join the last section of the legendary Inca Trail into Machu Picchu.
