Home to the ancient Inca civilisation, Peru combines stunning mountain scenery of the Andes with a fascinating Spanish colonial history and vibrant modern culture.

Our in-depth perspective on Peru reveals a country defined by its people and their interaction with the land. Glorious Inca citadels, perched high on hilltops, overlook dramatic gorges and valleys and unlock the secrets of an advanced civilisation.

Your story develops in the Sacred Valley, where the descendants of Incas preserve traditional ways of life, and on the colourful island communities of Lake Titicaca, where timeless customs and lifestyles are observed. Our guides in Cusco will show you the Spanish cathedrals and mansions built upon the foundations of sacred Inca temples, the living embodiment of the 16th century conquest.

Your trip might lead you into the Amazon to discover life in the jungle and cruise through the unique flooded forests. Perhaps you'll choose to soar over the Nazca Lines, the mysterious symbols of the pre-Inca civilisation, or to come face-to-face with majestic Andean Condors in the Colca Canyon.

The first-hand knowledge of our Travel Consultants and the enthusiasm of our hand-picked guides will enrich and personalise your travels in Peru.
