Peru is a land of exotic wonder and boundless adventure. With a staggering variety of sights and activities to explore, you can paddle your way through the Amazon, trek the sacred Inca Trail, or treat your taste buds to ceviche and pisco sours! Discover the ancient customs of the Andean culture as you meander through the hidden villages and historical towns bursting with colour and celebration during festivals.
Peru’s unrivalled landscapes are simply breathtaking. See traces of the Inca Empire as you clamber up to the majestic hills of Machu Picchu. The sparkling sapphire waters of Lake Titicaca afford you scenic views of rolling hills and ethnic villages tucked away along the shores. The jagged peaks of Colca Canyon are interspersed with old churches, hot springs and Inca ruins; while the mysterious geoglyph Nazca Lines are an archaeologist’s delight.
The magical oasis of Huacachina seems out of place with its picturesque, palm-laced resort town surrounded by sprawling sand dunes – a sandboarding hotspot.
Other archaeological gems beckoning to be explored are the volcanic rock buildings and colonial masterpieces in Arequipa, Barranco (south of Lima) and Plaza de Armas – all acclaimed World Heritage Sites. The cobbled streets of these historical towns are steeped in layers of history and should not be missed.
Aside from the plethora of outdoor pursuits, Peru is a culinary hotspot. With its exotic flavours and vibrant nightlife, you’re in for a dazzling treat!
