Archaeology & Nature in Northern Peru :
Trujillo, Chaparri & Chiclayo
(4 Days / 3 Nights)
This itinerary combines some of the most spectacular highlights of Peru´s desert archaeology with a taste of one of the planet´s rarest forest habitats, the arid "Tumbesian" woodlands of Peru´s north coast. We visit the glorious cities and temples of the Moche and Chimú civilizations, and glimpse the vestiges of an opulent Spanish colonial era in the modern city of Trujillo. The middle part of our journey takes us to a lodge in the Chaparrí nature reserve, set in the fascinating Pacific dry forest, and home to rescue projects for the threatened Andean Spectacled Bear and the critically endangered White-winged Guan. Finally we reach the city of Chiclayo, whence we launch our exploratory journeys to the pyramids of Túcume and Sipán and visit the spectacular collection of Moche treasures at the Royal Tombs of Sipán Museum. We end our visit with a flight to Lima.
