Our luxury holidays to Peru combine the ancient with the extraordinary. This is a country known for its Inca citadels and epic landscapes offering cultural and active adventures in abundance. Geologically, the massive Andes mountain range divides this county down the middle, with the dense jungle of the Amazon Basin on one side, the sandy desert edging the coast on the other and the Central Sierra, home to Andean farmers and providing a fascinating glimpse of rural Peru, in the middle.
Remnants of the ancient Inca empire punctuate the mountains, most legendary of all Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, though the Chachapoya ruins of the former fortress of Kuelap in the north - once home to 5,000 Cloud Warriors - is equally fascinating.
Thrill seekers are amply rewarded too: the geography of the country means that holidays to Peru can involve rafting, walking and following ancient trails by bike or on horseback. Luxury lodges mean this is no longer the preserve of backpackers and a day on the trails is succeeded by an evening of delicious cuisine and a tub with a view. Gastronomes too, will enjoy the excelling dining; Peru’s history has resulted in a veritable melting pot of cultures, creating fusion cuisine like no other.
Take a classic journey, a culinary adventure, go active with family or conquer the Machu Picchu Trail in style; our luxury Peru holidays are individually designed by travel specialists with passion and deep knowledge.
