Quest of the Gods
The itinerary for the trip is pretty intense…
November 1st – depart Gothenburg, fly to Lima (via Frankfurt, New York and San Salvadore)
November 2nd – Land in Lima at 2am – a few hours in a hotel and then exploring the city, hopefully meeting up with people also on the same tour.
November 3rd – Fly to Puerto Maldonado, then hike and canoe to the lodge where we will stay in the Amazon rainforest!
November 4th – Full day in the rainforest
November 5th – Canoe from the lodge to Puerto Maldonado and then a flight over the Andes to Cusco, the base camp for the Inca trail
November 6th – All day guided tour of the Sacred Valley, as well as organising our hired gear for the Inca trail.

November 8th – day two, the toughest day on the Inca trail, including a trip to Dead Womans Pass
November 9th – day three on the Inca trail – camping close to the Sun Gate
November 10th – Macchu Picchu, I guess this is considered the “highlight” of the trip, although for me the whole thing will be amazing!

November 12th – Drive to Puno and stay there
November 13th – A tour of the floating islands on Lake Titicaca
