Peru is a top target for travellers to South America, offering a wide spectrum of ancient and modern, with a vast array of cultural and natural wonders to explore in this one vast country.
The Andes mountain range runs the length of the country, splitting the country into the western coastal deserts, fertile highlands and steamy Amazon headwaters.
While the old Incan capital of Cuzco and the iconic refuge of Macchu Picchu are deservedly part of most visitor’s itineraries, but even these tourist hotspots can be seen in from a different angle or approached by a less-worn route.
Experienced in welcoming foreign visitors, Peru’s infrastructure is modernising rapidly and many areas have luxurious options the envy of any old-world resort. Yet, the country provides the adventurer with plenty of rugged trails and hidden corners to explore.
The spectacularly deep Colca Canyon is now within easy reach and Lake Titicaca’s icy Andean waters are also comfortably accessible.
From snow-capped peaks to arid wide beaches, fertile Incan terraces and virgin jungle, Peru is a true traveller’s paradise.
