"Peru is the South America that you’ve always imagined."

Touring in Peru

Peru is the South America that you’ve always imagined. The shaggy llamas, colourfully dressed people and mist-shrouded ruins of Machu Picchu are among the most iconic images of this magnificent continent. It’s a true bucket list destination, the ancient home of the Incas and a place where indigenous Andean culture is at its most vibrant.

Much of the landscape is cloaked in thick jungle, and Peru’s Upper Amazon is a better option than the Brazilian stretch of the river if you want to encounter wildlife. On the other side of the Andes is the arid coastal region where you’ll find the enigmatic Nazca Lines and the northern edge of the Atacama Desert, one of the driest places on earth. Peru also shares stunning Lake Titicaca with neighbouring Bolivia, and is home to attractive colonial era cities such as Arequipa and Trujillo. In recent years the exciting culinary scene of the capital, Lima, has put Peruvian cuisine on the map, and eating out here is a real treat.

 

Touring Highlights of Peru

  • Machu Picchu, the legendary lost city of the Incas, is the number one reason why most people visit Peru. No matter how many photos you’ve seen, you’re guaranteed goosebumps when you first glimpse the breathtaking ruins.
  • Cuzco was once the Inca capital, laid out to resemble the outline of a puma, and the modern city blends indigenous Andean culture with grandiose Spanish colonial architecture.
  • Condors circle overhead as you journey through the ever-changing landscape and traditional Indian villages of the Colca Canyon, one of the deepest in the world.
  • Lima is Peru’s underrated capital, home to splendid colonial architecture, buzzing bars and a trend-setting foodie scene.
  • Lake Titicaca is the loftiest lake in the world, and it’s a great place to become more acquainted with the traditional highland cultures of the Andes.
