Peru Tours

Discover the many hidden treasures in Peru

Why is Peru so special ?

Peru is the stuff that daydreams are made of. Your custom Peru tour package can have you exploring the majestic ruins of the mighty Inca Empire, before delving deep into the mysterious Amazon rainforest to catch glimpses of the rare and exotic wildlife that dwells within. Peru’s pre-Colombian history is one of the richest in South America, offering adventures to temples entangled in the jungle and sandblasted desert tombs. This link to the ancient past is perhaps even more tangible at Lake Titicaca where you can witness centuries-old traditions that are still integral to modern culture. And that’s not to mention the gastronomy, which is quickly becoming one of the world’s most exciting, or the 1500 miles of perfect Pacific coastline!

Choosing the best time for your Peru tour:

Peru’s complex geography means that the “best” time to visit varies by region!

From December to March, the sky is blue and the sun is shining along Peru’s desert coast, making this a great time to hit the beaches for sun and some surfing. April to November is cooler along the coast, but it’s only Lima where you’ll realistically need warm clothes in the winter.

The Andes experiences more distinct seasons, with heavy rains from December to March. Some hiking routes are closed during this period: notably, the Inca trail to Machu Picchu is shut every year during February for annual maintenance. Join one of our Peru tours to the Andes between June – September when the mountains are at their best, with warm, relatively dry weather. This time of year also features colourful local festivals such as Inti Raymi, the Incan festival of the sun!

The rainy/dry season pattern also affects the jungle, although the difference is that here it’s hot and humid all year round!

 

Top Peru Travel Destinations:

Colca Canyon in Arequipa

Peru Tours -Colca Canyon view

Calcus on the edge of the Colca Canyon in Peru

Arequipa, Peru’s “white city” is one of the most beautiful cities in the country. It boasts elegant colonial architecture, notably the enormous, colourful “city within a city” of Santa Catalina Monastery. However, the real draw here is the nearby Colca Canyon. Make sure to include this fabulous natural landmark in your Peru vacation package; cutting deeper into the Earth than the Grand Canyon, and boasting a huge range of flora and fauna (including the legendary Andean Condor), Colca Canyon is a real trekker’s dream!

 

Cusco & Machu Picchu

Cusco was once the very heart of the Inca Empire, and believed to be the navel of the Earth. Today, it boasts a fascinating blend of elegant colonial architecture and original Inca constructions, making it a “must-see” for all Peru tours! Venture into the Sacred Valley with one of our luxury Peru travel packages, and explore fascinating towns such as Ollantaytambo where little has changed – neither in the architecture nor in the dress and customs – since the time of the Incas. Of course, the jewel in the crown of the Sacred Valley is the awe-inspiring Inca city of Machu Picchu, a real bucket-list visit for many travellers. Set in an extraordinarily beautiful location surrounded by cloud-capped, forested mountains, this incredible archaeological site is the best known in South America, if not the world. 

Living Culture on Lake Titicaca in Puno

Peru Tours - taquine IslandThe world’s highest navigable lake is a geographical wonder and a truly beautiful spot, but its richest attraction is the tangible link to Peru’s pre-Columbian past, in the ancient traditions kept alive by the lake-dwelling villagers. Our luxury Peru travel packages can include a cultural exchange with the inhabitants of these traditional islands: the ultimate in community-centred travel!

The Aymara people, who live on Uros islands, still maintain the lifestyle of their ancestors, hand-building the reed islands on which they live. Across the lake in Taquile, the Quechua population are renowned weavers (knitting is a highly-regarded skill, and is taught to the men from the age of eight), farmers and fishermen. Witness this incredible living history with one of our exciting Peru tours!

Explore the Amazon

Peru Tour-Discovering Papaya samiriaThe Amazon rainforest is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, and the highlight of our luxury Peru tours! The best way to explore this wonder of unspoilt nature is by means of a luxury cruise starting in the remote jungle metropolis of Iquitos. Depending on your tour, you can go fishing for piranhas, walk along gravity-defying canopy bridges in search of the huge range of wildlife that inhabits the treetop level of the rainforest, and then board a skiff to search for legendary pink river dolphins.

 

Desert & Beaches in Piura

Peru Tours -MancoraThe desert outpost of Piura is the oldest Spanish city of South America, and is the gateway to the beaches of Peru’s northern coast! This region is perfect for summertime Peru tours. The rising star of the Piura district is Mancora, which boasts some of the best surfing in the world due to the constant Pacific swell. Peru’s unique geography means that the beaches back on to deserts rather than palm trees, and the sunsets of the Pacific Ocean are simply breathtaking.


Pre-Inca cultures in the North of Peru

Peru Tour - Chan ChanPeru might be most famous for its Inca legacy, but that’s certainly not all there is to see! Head off the beaten track with our custom Peru tours to the colourful city of Trujillo, and visit the enigmatic ruin of Chan Chan. The impressive site was constructed around 1300AD by the Chimú Empire, and is the largest pre-Columbian city in the Americas. Chan Chan’s location in the middle of Peru’s northern desert, combined with the lack of tourists, makes for a truly uniqu experience.

Meanwhile, the nearby Huaca del Sol and Huaca de la Luna are some 700 years older than Chan Chan, and were built by the Moche culture. Despite inevitable damage wrought by over a millennium of desert winds, you can still see well-preserved freizes and ceramics.

Finally, those who venture even further north can visit the impressive fortified city of Kuélap, built by the Chachapoya people (or as they are evocatively nicknamed, the Cloud Warriors!). Although the Chachapoyas were defeated by the Inca Empire in the second half of the 15th century, Kuélap was left largely intact. Featuring 20 metre high walls and over 420 separate houses, this remote site is well worth the effort to visit!
