Peru represents a microcosm of what South America has to offer. A diverse terrain ranges from dramatic snow-capped mountains to vast swathes of accessible virgin rainforest and an arid desert coast.
It is most famous for the well-preserved archaeological and cultural remnants of one of the world’s great civilizations, that of the pre-Columbian Incas.
Peru isn’t only Machu Picchu, the renowned "lost city", long hidden from European eyes on a hilltop in the sub-tropical Andean foothills. Travellers and tourists are drawn to the atmospheric ruins of other Inca citadels in the beautiful Sacred Valley, close to the lovingly preserved city of Cuzco, whose colonial structures were built on Inca foundations.
Other cities steeped in history enchant the eye with their flower-filled squares, evocative cathedrals and impressive museums.
The spectacular Colca Canyon, the dazzling blue waters of Lake Titicaca and the lodges of the Amazon basin offer the visitor the opportunity to enjoy a holiday of incredible variety. These gems are now all easily accessible by road or air.
Peru has an ever-improving hotel infrastructure and can offer the ultimate luxury juxtaposed with simple lodges and camping on its many hikes and trails.
