Peru is traveller’s daydream, packing so much into a single country shouldn’t be possible but, there Peru is. Home to the mighty snow-capped Andes, Incan ruins shrouded in mist, crashing Pacific waves and the thick Amazon, you could travel all year throughout Peru and barely scratch the surface.
Whether you head to the surreal city of Cusco for bucket list hikes like Rainbow Mountain, the Salkantay, or of course the Inca Trail, or to the chaos of downtown Lima to taste some of the most cutting-edge cuisine in the world, Peru offers all things to all travellers.
For nature lovers there’s watching condors drift on the thermals at the jaw-dropping Colca Canyon, or embarking on an adventure through the Amazon on the hunt for any of the vibrant and beautiful animals that live there.
A gold mine for history enthusiasts, Peru’s natural landscape hides countless ancient settlements and fortresses. And with a history as rich and varied as its natural landscape, Peru is a country with a fascinating culture that can be as rewarding to discover as the next plunging mountain valley.
