Peru is a fascinating country, home to ancient cultures and a rich colonial tradition. It's a magical spot that encompasses one of the richest biodiversities on Earth and is a melting pot of different cultures. While Peru inevitably evokes images of Machu Picchu and the Inca Empire, a holiday to Peru has so much more to offer, including beautiful scenery, diverse wildlife, lively cities and some of the friendliest people in South America. From the awe-inspiring Colca Canyon, the world's highest lake and its vast rainforest, to the magic of the Sacred Valley, there is so much to see.

Trek to Machu Picchu

The most famous trek in Peru is the Inca Trail - a 4-day hike that finishes by entering Machu Picchu at sunrise. It's one of the most spectacular treks in the world, but it is not the only incredible hike in Peru.

The Salkantay and Lares treks are quieter and take you away from the main tourist routes into some of the most remote corners of the Peruvian Andes. On these alternative adventures there is also the opportunity to enjoy stays in comfortable mountain lodges.

Take a train

Peru is home to some of the world's most impressive train journeys, and taking a train in Peru is a must. The full-day Andean Explorer from Cusco to Lake Titicaca is one of our favourites for amazing scenery, but the train from Cusco to Aguas Calientes also offers some great views along the way.


Try Ceviche

Ceviche is one of Peru's national dishes. It's a delicious combination of fish and seafood, lemon juice, onion, chili, ginger and coriander. However, every place has its own twist on the dish and it's great fun working your way through the different versions.


Cruise the Mighty Amazon River

A cruise on the Peruvian Amazon is the perfect place to end your holiday. It will give you the chance to unwind, watch wildlife and appreciate the tranquillity of this remote and fragile ecosystem. Enjoy first class service in complete seclusion from the outside world.

Spot Condors in the Colca Canyon

The Colca Canyon is deeper than the USA's Grand Canyon and the scenery here is absolutely stunning! The early morning journey up to Condor Point is well worth the trip to see these majestic birds up close before they fly off for a day's hunting.


Visit the communities on Lake Titicaca

The Uros floating islands are made of reeds, which float on the lake's surface. Home to the Uros indigenous people, the community was established hundreds of years ago to escape the influx of the Incan people. Today, the traditional ways of life are still practised and a visit here offers a fascinating insight into this unique community.

Machu Picchu

You simply can't talk about Peru without mentioning Machu Picchu. It truly is a magnificent site and well worthy of its label as Peru's biggest attraction. There is nothing quite like your first visit, but even if you have been before, you are sure to discover something new. The nearby town of Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Pueblo) is also a great place to spend a night, even if it's only to give you a second opportunity to see this magnificent wonder. Go To Machu Picchu >


Cusco

Known as the gateway to Machu Picchu, Cusco is a beautiful colonial city that is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. The city is alive with visitors from all over the world and amongst its impressive sites are cathedrals, monasteries and several Incan ruins that surround the city. We recommend to spend at least two days in Cusco, allowing you to discover the charms of this wonderful place. Go To Cusco >


Colca Canyon

Deeper than the USA's Grand Canyon, the majestic Colca Canyon offers some of the best views in Peru. A visit to Condor Point in the early morning is a brilliant experience that allows you to spot these majestic birds leaving their nests before they fly off for a day's hunting. Go to Colca Canyon >


Lake Titicaca

Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world and home to the Uros floating islands. A visit here will offer some superb views as far as Bolivia, and meeting the Uros people is a fascinating insight into another way of life. The town of Puno is also the start of the famous Andean Explorer train to Cusco. Go To Lake Titicaca >


Peruvian Amazon

The Amazon Rainforest can be accessed from Peru and it makes for an adventurous addition to any Peruvian holiday. There are a variety of lodges near the town of Puerto Maldonado, which has convenient flight connections to Lima and Cusco. For something a little more off the beaten track, we recommend a river cruise in the north of Peru. Go To Peruvian Amazon >


Arequipa

Often referred to as "The White City" Arequipa is full of colonial architecture and charm. The surrounding landscape is dominated by three dormant volcanoes and the city acts as the gateway to the Colca Canyon. This lively city also has several attractions, including a huge monastery, and a thriving gastronomy scene, second only to the capital of Lima. Go to Arequipa >

Hotel B, Lima

The Barranco district of Lima is fast becoming a popular place to stay, with a more bohemian atmosphere than the main parts of the city and a wealth of boutiques & restaurants. We think Hotel B is beautiful, with its traditional exterior and carefully designed interior complementing each other perfectly.

Go to Hotel B > 


Explora Sacred Valley

Located within a traditional corn plantation, Explora Sacred Valley just a short distance from both Cusco and Machu Picchu, but feels worlds away.

The hotel’s concept is based on the luxury of the essential, and focuses on the deep rest and relaxation that can be found in this hallowed location. 

Go to Explora Sacred Valley>

Colca Lodge, Colca Canyon

Colca Lodge is located in the heart of the Colca Canyon and its setting by the river couldn't be better. The lodge itself is a haven of tranquility, with traditional buildings, beautiful gardens and river-side hot springs for guests' use. The lodge can also organise horse riding or walking in the surrounding countryside.

Go to Colca Lodge > 


El Mercado Tunqui, Cusco

El Mercado Tunqui is a boutique hotel in Cusco. Housed in a traditional building, the hotel has been designed with a modern, slightly funky finish. The hotel offers something a little different from the more traditional hotels in the city, highlighted by the unique breakfast room which is set up like a market with a fresh juice stall and herbal remedies cart. It's a fun hotel with great service and is well priced too. 

Go to El Mercado > 


Sol y Luna, Sacred Valley

Sol y Luna is one of our director's favourite hotels in South America, so it must be good! Beautiful individual casitas (houses) sit in manicured gardens, which are frequented by hummingbirds that feed on the huge array of flowers. The hotel has a fabulous restaurant, spa and pool area, plus its own charitable foundation that offers free education to local children. 

Go to Sol y Luna > 


Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, Machu Picchu

The Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is the only hotel located at Machu Picchu, rather than in Aguas Calientes, the small town below the citadel. Not only is it a luxury 5* hotel that offers views over the ruins from the hotel's gardens, its location means that you can be first through the entrance to see Machu Picchu in the morning, before anyone else has arrived!

Go to Sanctuary Lodge > 


Hotel Arennas, Mancora

Hotel Arennas is located in Mancora in the north of Peru and offers beach-side accommodation that is the perfect relaxing end to a Peru holiday. Travelling around Peru is spectacular but you are on holiday after all, and this hotel provides the perfect place to have a couple of days' relaxation.

Go to Arennas > 


Palacio Del Inka, Cusco
