Peru

Few destinations have as much to offer visitors as Peru, an astonishingly varied country. Here you'll find panoramic mountain ranges, vast deserts, beautiful beaches and tropical jungles, not to mention a fantastically rich history, archaeology, wildlife and enduring indigenous cultures. Peru is a country in western South America. It is bordered on the north by Ecuador and Colombia, on the east by Brazil, on the southeast by Bolivia, on the south by Chile, and on the west by the Pacific Ocean.

Such a diverse landscape generates diverse pleasures; the visitor can hike through snowy peaks one day, and relax on the beach the next; paddle a dugout through lowland rainforest or hop on a traditional tortora reed boat on some of the world's highest lakes.

Visit Peru's top attraction, the awe-inspiring Inca city of Machu Picchu, perched atop a remote mountain northwest of Cusco. This World Heritage site is arguably the most important archaeological site in South America, not to mention its dramatic location. Trawl through five centuries of colonial history in Lima, admiring the handsome plazas and opulent mansions with their Moorish latticed wooden balconies or rift out upon Lake Titicaca, the world's highest navigable lake, and visit the unique waterborne reed islands and boats of the native Uros people. Don't miss a trip to the capital of the Inca Empire, the Caral Complex and the Moche Ruins and for adventure fanatics, discover the Tambopata-Candamo Reserve Zone, 45km from Puerto Maldonado by river or simply delve into Manu National Park, Peru's greatest treasure in biodiversity.
