Adventures, colours, cultures and flavours abound in Peru. The ancient civilisations of the Moche, Nazca, Chachapoya and Inca peoples live on today through the incredibly diverse modern cultural landscape of Peru.
The country is made up of three main regions – the coast with its dry desert climate, the Andes mountains and surrounding highlands, and the Amazon which makes up almost 60% of the country.
Discover the majestic architectural genius of Machu Picchu and the mysterious Nazca Lines. Visit the Colca Canyon and the floating reed islands on Lake Titicaca. Exploring the Amazon jungle is a must as well.
History & Archaeology
Thanks to the legacy of powerful ancient civilisations, Peru is home to over 5,000 archaeological sites. Many of them are shrouded in mystery and transport visitors back in time to when these cultures flourished. For example, a visit to Machu Picchu reveals the perfection of the Inca Empire; you can reach this sacred spot on board luxury trains that travel through breathtaking mountain landscapes dotted with colourful Andean villages.
Peru, Gourmet Capital of South America
The country is the number one gourmet destination in South America and is home to some world-class restaurants and chefs. Three of the top 50 Restaurants in the world can be found in Lima. At Central, Maido and Astrid & Gaston you can experience some of the best tasting menus in the world for under $200 per person.
Fine dining isn’t all that Lima, and Peru, offer – across the country you can find exceptional culinary experiences at small, local restaurants and festivals. As a matter of fact, South America’s premier culinary festival is held in Lima every year – Mistura.
Peru is synonymous with nature and is one of the top countries with the greatest biodiversity and natural resources in the world. With more than 158 protected natural areas, it has 84 of the 117 life zones around the world. Peru has 12 national parks, 11 national reserves, 7 national sanctuaries and 10 reserved areas. It is home to more than 1,800 species of birds and 10% of the reptiles, mammals and fish on the planet. It also has 3,500 species of orchids.
