Overview

Peru Adventures

Peru AdventuresFrom the ruins of Machu Picchu, voted as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, to snow-capped mountains, brightly hued tropical birds and vibrant local markets - many travellers believe Peru to be the most colourful nation in South America. 

While trekking the famous Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the most famous journeys, there are many other incredible experiences to be had. Cusco's traditional markets, historic archaeological sites and excellent cafes make this city a visitor favourite.

Other highlights include the Colca Canyon - a gorge twice as deep as the Grand Canyon,  the mysterious Nazca Lines and Lake Titicaca's native island communities.

Peru Tour Highlights

Cusco
The heart of the Incan Empire and gateway to the nearby Machu Picchu, Cusco was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. Its many markets and colonial architecture will show you some of the very best city sights Peru has to offer.
Inca Trail
Imagine all of the people that have made the pilgrimage to Machu Picchu from the ancient Inca stone masons to the phenomenally hard-working local porters. This is your chance to walk in some very fascinating footsteps en-route to one of the wonders of the world.
Machu Picchu
Known as the 'Lost City of the Incas' after its rediscovery in 1911, Machu Picchu or 'Old Peak' in the Quechua language, is located high on a mountain top. Ancient palaces, temples and some 150 houses all remain in a remarkable state of preservation.
Lake Titicaca
The highest navigable lake in the world is located in the high plains between Peru & Bolivia. According to the Incan mythology, this was where the world was created, when the god Viracocha came out of the lake and created the sun, the stars and the first people.
