Peru Walks, Treks & Cultural Holidays

Peru Walks, Treks & Cultural Holidays

With its towering mountain ranges and fascinating Inca heritage, Peru is one of the most exciting countries to visit in South America and a trekker's paradise.

This wonderful country combines stunning scenery with incredible biodiversity and a vibrant culture and history. Everywhere you will see reminders of the country’s rich past. Spanish Colonial churches rub shoulders with Inca ruins and Machu Picchu, the most iconic image of Peru, was built by the Incas who were in fact just the last representatives of a series of sophisticated cultures stretching back thousands of years.

Peru’s Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is probably one of the best known and most popular trekking trails in the world, and rightly so. There's even a luxury lodge trek that follows a different trail over high passes with wonderful views of Machu Picchu. Alternatively, you can trek through the more remote Lares region before hiking the final stage of the Royal Inca Trail to Machu Picchu: Lares trek & Royal Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

Whilst mountains and ancient sites are Peru’s main draws, there is much else to explore. Peru has an amazingly rich heritage and culture – the ‘White City’ of Arequipa and vibrant Cuzco with its wonderful Spanish colonial architecture are just two of its must-see sights. Its breathtaking scenery includes the amazing Colca Canyon and the high altiplano around the blue waters of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world.
