Peru may be best known for the Incan citadel of Machu Picchu, but there are an incredible array of experiences and adventures to be had throughout the country that should not be overlooked.
Peru is a hiker's paradise with something for every ability and comfort level. Climb the ancient cobbled stairs and camp along the ancient Inca Trail, or take the path less traveled on the Salkantay Trek between remote mountain lodges where you can soak in a jacuzzi each night under the star-pierced Andean skies. The truly intrepid will be rewarded on high elevation, llama-supported treks in the Ausangate region, where endless jaw-dropping views are de rigueur day after day and evenings are spent in remote, community-owned lodges.
History aficionadoes will be enthralled in Cusco, the capital of the ancient Incan Empire, now a bustling and charming city nestled in the Andes with some of the most vibrant markets in Peru. Cultural enthusiasts will fall in love with the Sacred Valley, where Quechua villages dot the terraced hillsides and locals are eager to share their traditional ways with curious visitors.
All trails in Peru eventually to Machu Picchu, a dream destination on every world traveler's "must-experience" list, and for good reason. This awesome architectural and spiritual wonder reveals its secrets through the stories and expertise of our local guides.
Extend your exploration by descending from the high Andes to a research station deep in the Amazon rainforest, the domain of monkeys, macaws, toucans and jaguars. Even further, explore the floating islands of Lake Titicaca, one of the highest lakes in the world, where a luxury lodge sits overlooking this marvel.
Peru is a jewel of a destination that rewards every type of adventurer with authentic cultural encounters, a diverse range of active experiences, and endless opportunities to combine all of the highlights into your dream itinerary.
