Peru – Things to do

Peru Attractions

We know you’re looking for a life-changing holiday, and you’ll get that in Peru, a land of bucolic landscapes and pre-Columbian history. So visit Cuzco, the cradle of the Incan Empire and of course, the iconic Machu Picchu. Don’t overlook Lima either, a compelling capital city on the Pacific coast home to archaeological relics from the Moche civilisation. Stroll around the boho Barrancos neighbourhood and try the ceviche with a tangy pisco sour – you won’t regret it.

Machu Picchu

Ancient Ruins of Machu Picchu

You’ll feel like you’re treading on unchartered territory when you hike across the Inca Trail. We don’t know which will make your skin tingle more; the spectacular Andean mountains circled by birds of prey, or Machu Picchu’s mystical ruins.

Lake Titicaca

Lake Titicaca

You’ll want to see the migratory flamingos and other exotic wildlife of Lake Titicaca. Aside from being the birthplace of the ancient Incas, it’s 15 times the size of Lake Geneva and is located at high altitude, 3,827 metres above sea level.

Nazca Lines

Nazca Lines

The Nazca lines, otherwise known as geoglyphs were originally spotted by air in 1939 by a pilot flying over this region in the coastal highlands of Peru. A UNESCO World heritage since 1994, this remarkable area stretches over an incredible 50 miles between Nazca and Palpa.
