Visiting Machu Picchu: our expert tips
Two of our Peru specialists share eight useful tips on how to get the most out of your visit to this world-renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Perched high on a mountain ridge and hidden from the world for hundreds of years, the ruins of Machu Picchu are the jewel in Peru's crown. One of our Peru specialists gives a personal account of how to get the most from your visit.
Guarded by three volcanoes and renowned for its white-brick Spanish-colonial buildings, pink sunsets and food scene, Arequipa is more than just a base in which to acclimatize at the start of your Peru trip, as Fathom, our Latin America specialist, explains.
Trekking to and around Machu Picchu offers walks to suit all abilities, from day hikes to multi-day treks. Peru specialist, Anna, picks some of her top choices, including the Inca Trail, Salkantay Trek and short walks from Machu Picchu.
Who says Peru trekking vacations should revolve around the Inca Trail? Our specialists share their pick of the alternatives on offer, from gentler options to remote backcountry routes — all of which you can easily incorporate into a Peru trekking tour.
Here you’ll find that the Incas are a footnote, their thunder stolen by the relics of earlier civilizations. Northern Peru travel involves getting well and truly off the beaten track in sierra, cloudforest and coastal desert, explains Peru specialist Chloe.
Peru specialist and former resident Fiona shares her top places to experience in Peru. She explains what to see and do in the Sacred Valley, how to best experience Amazonian wildlife, and recommends a lesser-known region of Peru to explore.
Former Cuzco resident Fiona shares her choice of her adopted country’s lesser-known Inca ruins, which share Machu Picchu’s geography but not its fame. She explains how to delve even deeper into the best archeological sites of the Peruvian Incas.
Peru’s food scene is courting attention for good reason, says specialist Josh. He outlines some of the food-related experiences you can include in your own trip, and shares his tips for eating well in this part of South America.
