Peru

An exciting food scene, ancient civilizations and the full spectrum of landscapes spanning ocean, rainforest, lakes, mountains and desert.

A panoramic view of the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu with its lofty peaks and scattered 15th century ruins set against the light-dappled cloud forest, is already enough to tick the box for the trip-of-a-lifetime.

If you’re going to make a pilgrimage to one of the seven wonders of the world, an expert guide makes all the difference. We’ll make you feel the thrill of the early archaeologists whilst also helping you avert the tourist throngs with the deftness of Indiana Jones dodging a boulder.

Beyond Machu Picchu, there is so much more to explore in this megadiverse country. Stretching from Pacific shores in the west to the Amazonian tributaries in the east, is the best birdwatching on the planet, the second largest portion of the Amazon rainforest after Brazil, snowy peaked sierras that challenge even the hardiest mountaineers, and even world class surfing along 2000km of coastline.

Add to that, ancient enigmas like the Nazca lines and relics of bygone civilizations like the Moche and Chachapoya cultures, plus Lima’s contemporary art, fashion and food scene, and the adventure of a lifetime awaits.
