A little bit about Peru

Explore Peru, one of the most colourful, diverse and unique countries in South America. From wild landscapes of snow-capped mountains to deep Amazon Jungle, Peru allows you to experience the diversity and beauty of the natural world.

Peru is home to some of the most amazing historical cities in South America. A few example are Lima, the capital city that is known as the colonial ‘City of Kings’ as well as Cusco, the city that overflows with history, old traditions and remarkable colonial architecture. Cusco is the perfect place to start your journey to Machu Picchu, the ‘Lost City of the Incas’ and Sacred Valley, the heart of the ancient Inca civilization. Challenge yourself and hike the Inca trail, by far the most famous and beautiful trek in South America. The trail takes you through stunning mountain scenery and ancient Inca ruins. Another place to explore Inca ruins is Lake Titicaca, which is considered to be the birthplace of Incas.  Not only Peru is known for its ancient civilizations, but also for one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Amazon Jungle. Spot the unique wildlife and exotic landscapes in Iquitos, a city that can only be reached by river or plane.  Whether you are looking for wildlife, culture or archaeology, Peru is a country that offers something for everyone!
