South America


Peru tailor-made holidays

Peru is perhaps best known as the site of the myth- and mist-shrouded Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, but it is so much more besides.

The vast jungles of Peru are home to the greatest diversity of plants and wildlife on earth, the rivers to the scariest white-water rafting anywhere, and the mighty Peruvian Andes to the best in unexplored adventure.

There are more ancient archeological sites in Peru than any other South American country, while Cusco's Spanish colonial heritage and Incan historical foundations make for one of the most fascinating cities on earth.

From Lima's historic districts and famed gastronomy to trekking in the Sacred Valley and discovering the indigenous custodians of Lake Titicaca, Peru holidays are perfect for tailor-made travel and luxury indulgence.
