Peru’s vibrant Inka culture, one of the most exciting in the Americas, will brighten your travels and the genuinely hospitable locals will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Ancient highland towns explode into colour on market day, and local fiestas are celebrated with unbridled enthusiasm. From exotic jungle to coastal desert via the breathtaking peaks of the Andes mountain range, Peru’s staggering variety of places to visit means the potential for adventure is boundless. Whether you want to trek the hallowed Inca Trail, drink pisco sours in a quaint colonial town or paddle your way down the Amazon in a dugout canoe – this is a country that’s ready for exploring.

With the highest tropical mountain range in the world as well as one of the finest preserved areas of virgin Amazon rainforest, Peru’s wildlife and scenery is impressive and surprising. Sights such as caimans sunbathing on riverbanks, hummingbirds in the cloud forests and striking macaws gathering at clay licks are all easily accessible to the traveller. Those looking for action-packed days, a host of outdoor activities will appeal, from trekking trails, white water rafting, horseback riding and hurtling through the desert on dune-buggy rides.

Widely touted as one of the world’s upcoming culinary hotspots, the country – Lima peru in particular – offers an array of exotic tastes to appeal to adventurous palates. Surprisingly laidback, yet vibrant the culinary offering ranges from informal cevicherías to award-winning restaurants. And in the big cities, you can expect buzzing nightlife too.
