What We Love
- Lima’s culinary scene has been earning major props on the international stage. Eating one’s way through the country’s cultural capital is the perfect way to start a Peruvian adventure for good reason. The food represents a fusion of cultures and climates spread across the mountains, the coastline, and the rainforest.
- A trekking capital of the world, ascending Peru’s Andes through the terraced hillsides and verdant peaks has no end of natural and cultural rewards.
- Visiting the most famous Andean mecca, Machu Picchu—a true wonder of the world—with a former resident archaeologist.
What To See & Do
- Witness the incredible horsemanship of the Peruvian Passofinos while gently acclimating to the Sacred Valley.
- Ascend to Cusco, the cobbled colonial capital in the interior of the country, and stock up on Andean artisanal crafts.
- Take the train through the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu.
- Raft down the mighty waters that carved the incredible Colca Canyon, which is twice as deep as the Grand Canyon.
- Starting in Iquitos, go deep into the rainforest that spreads out over the Amazon Basin into Brazil.
After trekking through the unique flora and fauna of the highest tropical forests in the world, why not check out another kind of biodiversity in the Galápagos Islands? An adventure at sea and with exotic wildlife nicely complements a tour of the mountains and jungles of Peru.
Alternatively, continue further into the interior of the continent to Bolivia and sail the highest lake in the world, Titicaca.
