Peru is a truly unique destination. Most famous for its fabled lost city of the Incas, Machu Picchu, Peru is that and so much more. The old capital of the Inca empire, Cuzco, is a living, breathing testament to over 3000 years of habitation. With ancient ruins and 16th century colonial architecture, this vibrant UNESCO city is both authentic and surprising at the same time. Lake Titicaca, lying high in the Andes Mountains borders with Bolivia and is the highest navigable lake in the world at just under 4000m. Home to islands with local communities which have flourished for hundreds of years, this southerly point of Peru is also home to many pre-Inca cultures.
As far as other breath-taking scenery, Peru is in a class of its own. The beautiful city of Arequipa, surrounded by volcanoes is also the gateway to the fascinating valleys of Colca and Cotahuasi, with their soaring condors and ancient agricultural terracing. The immense expanse of the Amazon basin spreads from north to south of the entire country and is home to the largest diversity of animal and plant species known to science. Witness the elusive jaguar or count the innumerable species of parrot and monkey within the lush rainforests.
Along the coast of Peru, there are more delightful sites of interest; the far north is home to some of the best white sand beaches on the whole of the continent, whilst a little further south there are many ancient cultural and archaeological sites affording the name, the Egypt of the Americas. To the south, with its beautiful bays, teeming wildlife islands, the mysterious Nazca Lines, wine region and desert sand dunes, it becomes apparent that Peru is indeed a country of many wonders. Lastly, Peru has in recent times put itself on the culinary map as the gastronomic leader of South America, so come and visit each region of this fascinating country and sample the many local delicacies based on its diverse ingredients.
Diversity is the very key to Peru and rewards visitors with countless reasons to return time and again.
