Welcome to Peru
Visit Peru and find exactly what kind of adventure you are seeking. Mountain tops, ancient civilizations, traditional ways of life and smiling Peruvians never cease to amaze. Llamas, intricate handwoven goods and a pisco sour are sure to leave an indelible impression. Add to this, the deep Colca Canyon, sand dunes and the vibrant capital city of Lima and you could stay in Peru for months discovering all that there is to do.
On just about everybody’s bucket list is Machu Picchu. People share stories of challenging hikes and others take the train to visit this mystical Incan civilization that leaves you breathless.
Travellers to Peru all have different experiences with regard to altitude sickness. It becomes another thread in your own story about Peru.
Peru was the first country I visited on my 3-month itinerary in South America. It is a country full of welcoming people, incredible Inca ruins, ancient history and a place where you can carve out a place to relax or push yourself to new heights! I travelled solo and felt welcome and safe where I ventured.
Visit Peru. I spent 2 weeks in Peru and will have to plan a return trip as I was left wanting to explore deeper and further afield.
