Considered one of South America most exciting and varied nations, Peru offers the curious adventurer a wealth of possibilities. Take a step back in time as you walk through the cobblestone streets of Cuzco or visit a traditional community in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. In fact, the remains of Peru’s past are everywhere. From the ancient northern kingdom of Sipan to the southern civilisation of the Inca, Peru’s history is embedded in its people’s traditions. Fly over the mysterious Nazca lines, see Andean condors soaring over the Colca Canyon or witness the mesmerizing sunsets of the Amazon or Lake Titicaca. We guarantee that your holiday to Peru will be unforgettable.
