Peru

Immortalised by the mythical lost Incan city of Machu Picchu, Peru offers a glimpse into days gone by with its absorbing Aztec culture, magnificent South American landscapes and intriguing history.

Watch the sun break over the lofty Machu Picchu for an unforgettably cathartic experience and explore the ruins of a land that continues to fascinate historians and archaeologists to this day, before taking to the Inca Trail for a chance to better understand the endemic cultures of this glorious land.

Better still, Peru offers so much more beyond the colonial wonders of Machu Picchu, Cuzco and Arequipa, since a visit to this Latin American hotspot can also take you to the shores of the tranquil Lake Titicaca and allow you to delve deep into its own portion of the mighty Amazon Rainforest. A holiday to Peru is resplendent in extraordinary opportunities.
