From Paddington to Peru


Private Journey


The enchanting, loveable bear from 'darkest Peru' who ended up in Paddington station may not know much about his native land, but would no doubt enjoy this holiday which is ideal for all the family.  Offering the chance to see real live Peruvian spectacled bears in their own natural environment, the holiday also explores magnificent Inca ruins with a backdrop of snow-spangled Andean peaks in the Sacred Valley of the Incas and at Machu Picchu, further downstream, where the Urubamba river crashes towards the Amazon basin.

What our experts say

When I took my children to Peru Last year I knew we could not miss out on one of South America’s biggest highlights, Machu Picchu. Knowing how altitude sickness could affect our trip, I arranged for our family to head straight to the Sacred Valley which is located between Cusco and Machu Picchu. Staying at a lower level than Cusco meant we could gradually acclimatise without any problems at all.
