Peru Holidays

Peru is a top destination for holidays in South America. It offers the visitor a taste of everything the continent has to offer, both culturally and in terms of dramatic landscapes: icy mountains, jungle and desert.

There are many well-preserved vestiges of the pre-Columbian Incas and the heritage of colonial Spain, yet is it also a modern country, rapidly getting up to date in terms of infrastructure and technology. Nowadays, in addition to a highlights of Peru holiday, we can bring you a luxury holidays in Peru as well as good value budget holidays in Peru and even more adventurous options and visits to off the beaten track corners of the country.

What to see? Top highlight of anyone’s list will be Machu Picchu, the Lost City of Peru, on a hilltop in the sub-tropical Andean foothills. But we can also take you to ruins of other Inca citadels nearby in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, close to Cusco, Peru’s colonial city and Inca  capital and we suggest you visit the ruins of older Peruvian cultures: Kuelap in the central and northern sierras of the Andes.

Once isolated highlights such as the deeply traditional  Colca Canyon and Lake Titicaca are now all easily and comfortably accessible by road, by train on the railways of Peru or air.

For active holidays in Peru, there’s a huge range of  adventure sports. We can offer you a choice of  walking and trekking holidays in Peru, including the famous Classic Inca Trail, and river-rafting on the River Apurimac, horse-riding, and mountain biking.
