Peru Vacations

A cacophony of culinary and cultural riches, Peru is as intricate and dazzling as the weavings of its Andean artisans, an enigmatic tapestry of lost Incan cities, mysterious geoglyphs, and natural wonders still waiting to be discovered.
Arequipa
Sculpted in 'sillar' stone and guarded by the ethereal El Misti volcano, the oft-overlooked Ciudad Blanca (White City) of Arequipa, home of monastic masterpieces, chasmic canyons, and Incan ice-maidens, is an Andean treasure not to be missed.
Cusco
Unlock the sacred secrets of Cusco, the navel of the ancient Incan Empire, a gloriously messy mosaic of traditional Andean culture, Spanish colonialism, and 21st-century charm cradled high in the breathtaking Huatanay River valley.
Amazon
Subsumed in an arboreal labyrinth, 60% of Peru is claimed by the caimans and pink river dolphins of the Amazon, with its rainbow of birdlife in the dense jungle canopy, skulking jaguars, and fascinating indigenous tribes tucked out of sight.
Iquitos
Hemmed on all sides by Amazon jungle and unreachable by road, dive into buzzing Iquitos, a hive of colorful colonial buildings, meandering moto-taxis, wild markets and floating slums, surrounded by the serpentine sanctuary of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve.
Lima
A colossus of the Pacific, teetering on its clifftop perch, trendy Lima is a chaotic symphony of noise, restless growth and gastronomic genius where traditional artisanal markets, high-culture theaters and modish nightclubs jostle for space.
Titicaca
High up in the heady realms of the Peruvian Altiplano is the ‘Birthplace of the Sun’, Lake Titicaca, whose cerulean blue waters stretch from indigenous floating villages to an unforgettable Andean horizon.
Machu Picchu
Shrouded in misty tendrils and humming with secrets, the leafy mountains of the Eastern Cordillera cradle the ancient Inca ruins of Machu Picchu against a cinematic backdrop. This legendary stone citadel is a sight you’ll never forget.
Sacred Valley
The emerald hues of the Sacred Valley are home to a treasure trove of lofty Incan citadels, authentic weaving villages and bustling marketplaces, all humming with the nervous excitement of intrepid travelers beginning their pilgrimage to Machu Picchu.
Chachapoyas
Enter the realm of the 'Warriors of the Clouds', the cloud forest kingdom of the mysterious Chachapoya culture, an explorer’s paradise of spectacular waterfalls, marvelous hummingbirds, cliff-residing mummies and the majestic pre-Incan fortress of Kuélap.
Nazca Lines
Witness one of the world's great archaeological mysteries in Nazca, a nearly 500 square kilometer earthen canvas of over 1000 lineations, mesmeric motifs and giant geoglyphs etched into the sun-baked desert – supersized shapes, plants and animals best viewed from above.

Why Visit Peru?

Peru vacations are as varied and vivacious as the colorful Andean textiles of its highlands. Explore a legendary land of ancient civilizations and lost citadels, set on a quilted patchwork stage of staggering landscapes whose living history is as potent as its pisco sours. Peru’s Pacific coast is home to hidden desert oases, mysterious Nazca Lines and, lest we forget, Lima, its lively linchpin, and South America’s undisputed culinary capital. Beyond lie the echoing depths of its cavernous Colca Canyon, the majestic Andes mountains with their stunning Sacred Valley and breathtaking altiplano, itself home to titanic Lake Titicaca, and the enchanting realm of the Peruvian Amazon.

Home to no fewer than 12 UNESCO World Heritage sites, Peru vacation packages spoil travelers with a superlative spectrum of cultural riches. Discover the mysterious mummies and formidable Kuelap fortress of the cloud forest kingdom of Chachapoyas, visit the sacred city of Caral-Supe, the most ancient city of the Americas, and succumb to the charms of the historic colonial centers of Lima and Arequipa. Scale the steep cobbled streets of Cusco, where descendants of the Inca still speak their Quechuan tongue, and begin a pilgrimage along famous Inca trails through the verdant Sacred Valley’s spectacular ancient Incan sites, culminating in reverence at the sanctuary of Machu Picchu.

Our Machu Picchu trip was phenomenal and our tour guides were each very helpful and knowledgeable about our tours. We really enjoyed our time in this area and are so happy that we were able to add this portion onto our cruise and see two very different sides to Peru!
- Anjali S.
The trip to Peru was wonderful – the trip of a lifetime. It was such a luxury to be met at all the airports and to simply relax, knowing that we were in good hands. Truly a luxury as my husband is a real do-it-yourself travel person. I believe you have converted him to the pleasures of guided travel. Thank you so much for arranging this amazing trip.

Peru was brilliant – many thanks to you and your team for all you did. The hotels in Arequipa, Colca Canyon, Ollantaytambo and Cusco were brilliant, the Amazon lodge was also a unique experience.
