Peru brings to mind images of the staggered walls of Machu Picchu, nestled against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains, blue lakes, and green, terraced fields that spill down into the Amazon rainforest. The country is home to a wealth of rewarding opportunities, from scaling the Andean peaks or cruising the amazon, to observing the customs of its indigenous people. Whether you’re planning a journey of a lifetime to Machu Picchu or incorporating Peru into a larger trip, our travel guides can provide you with the inspiration you need to start planning your tailor-made holiday.
