Sublime landscapes, wildlife, history, culture - Peru has more than its fair share. Its famed snow-capped Andean peaks shelter the temples and fortresses of the Inca and other pre-Columbian cultures, linked by a network of paved trails. 

Much of Peru’s territory lies in the Amazon basin, swathed in tropical forest, surviving virtually untouched; but its diversity of exotic wildlife and vegetation is surprisingly accessible. Peru’s arid coastline is dotted with the haunting remnants of ancient cultures -easy to visit, a bit harder to decipher, always fascinating. Above and beside of all of this, the Spanish colonial heritage has survived to provide a living record of the richness of its art and architecture, from humble village to imperial city, the visitor is spoilt for choice. The markets, music and fiestas of contemporary Peru just add to the colour.

This is a country with a long tradition of welcoming visitors, and caters for both grass roots and luxury travel.

Our insider tips for Peru

Isabelle

Isabelle Mazille

It’s the obvious one, but Machu Picchu always exceeds expectations, for its spectacular mountain site, superb masonry, and the magnificent view over the celebrated Inca ruins from the Gate of the Sun.
Sophie Barber

Sophie Barber

Exploring Cusco on foot, dropping into markets and arty cafés as you travel through the city’s history of two empires: Inca temples, baroque churches, stone-flagged plazas.

Paul

Paul Winrow-Giffin

Biking or horse riding in the exquisite countryside of the ever fertile Sacred Valley, former breadbasket of the Inca civilisation.

Ben Line

A few days in the jungle of Amazonia, surprisingly accessible, yet with a feeling of total remoteness; spying monkeys, alligators, turtles, toucans, macaws and a myriad of butterflies.

 

What our experts say

I am French but I’m not a wine drinker and have never been particularly interested in wines.  Yet I found the tour of Queirolo near Pachacamac, one hour south of Lima,  fascinating. It is a good balance between the family history and the wine making process and explains the difference between Peruvian and Chilean pisco.
The visit to the winery is guided by an expert sommelier full of enthusiasm.
