Overview & Highlights

Thrill the family with snow-capped landscapes, ruined temples, colonial cities and exotic wildlife. Travel with the condors to deep Colca Canyon,  step onto floating reed islands of Lake Titicaca and visit to Machu Picchu. Round it all off in Amazonian jungle, a short hop away.

The top sights of Peru will leave all the family thrilled by the scenic grandeur, ruined temples, colonial cities and exotic wildlife. You travel from the dizzy heights at the rim of the Colca Canyon, one of the deepest in the world, and the floating reed islands of the Uros Indians on Lake Titicaca to Machu Picchu, the Inca Lost City, once buried under the tropical forest which surrounds it.

Fly from the vast capital, Lima to the colonial plazas of Arequipa, Peru’s White City, which sits in the desert in the shadow of Volcano Misti. Travel by road up through stark desert to remote Colca Canyon, where a traditional rural lifestyle has been preserved.

Drive on to the icy, sapphire waters of Lake Titicaca: spend time with the farmers and fishermen who live there. 

Continue by road to historic Cusco, showcase of Inca and Spanish colonial treasures. It’s a short drive to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, with towering ruined temples and lovely country walks. Travel by rail through a narrow gorge to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, set on a mountain saddle above the Urubamba Valley which leads down to the oh-so-close Amazon: you’ll travel by short flight and boat to a wildlife lodge for adventure and wildlife spotting.
