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

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.

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

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

The Amazon of Peru probably gives you as a visitor the most variety and choice of experience of any of the countries which share the basin. The Tambopata region  - accessible by an hour’s flight from Cusco - has a range of comfortable lodges, ideal for first timers or those wanting a taste of the jungle.  Manu, rather more remote, offers superb wildlife-spotting opportunities – I even caught a glimpse of a jaguar here, and have photographic evidence to prove it!  From Iquitos you can take an Amazon cruise, several vessels make regular trips, from the traditional to the luxurious.
