Deep in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, you’ll find the South American country of Peru. Famous for the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu, a whole host of archaeological sites, and more colourful nature than you can shake a stick at.

Whilst many travellers end up in the more tourist-friendly Cusco or Arequipa, capital city Lima offers a bit of respite and also some great alternatives to the crowded buses and street-hawkers that may await you elsewhere. There’s even a free tour of this UNESCO-listed colonial town four times a week. In the far south of the country, discover condors in the canyons of Colca, land of the ice-mummies, or trek from Llanganuco to Santa Cruz. Explore the Amazon, boasting over 1000 bird and 200 mammal species, or take a canoe down the river. Discover the Nazca people, predating the Incas by 2,000 years, in Lima.

There’s more to do in Peru than discovering ancient cities and trekking ancient trails (though we definitely recommend both), in fact there are so many different landscapes, climates and ecosystems that you won’t get a feel for the country in one visit. A visit here is not for the faint-hearted, but it will be a true adventure unlike anything you’ll experience elsewhere.
