One of South America's most captivating destinations; a journey in the footsteps of the Incas and conquistadors, Peru’s empire builders, is a wonderful adventure.
Lying at the heart of the Inca Empire, Peru is home to a host of magnificent archaeological treasures from the temples and fortresses in Cusco and the Sacred Valley to the majestic ‘Lost City of the Incas’ Machu Picchu, one of the historical treasures of the world. In addition to Inca history, you'll find adobe pyramids from ancient cultures, vast mysterious lines in the desert and grand Spanish colonial cities dotted all over the country.
The natural beauty is more than a match for the culture too with the magnificent Andes Mountains, swathes of thick Amazon jungle, glistening lakes and desert sand dunes all vying for your attention. Throw in the warm-hearted Peruvian people, incredible cuisine and a rich and multi-layered culture and you have a country that should be on everyone’s bucket list.
Trailfinders helps thousands of people plan their holidays to Peru every year and we have a dedicated team of destination specialists. Whether you are looking for inspiration on where to go or want to know the best way to get about, what to see and where to stay– they are the perfect people to put it all together for you.

Top Tips From Our Experts
Don't rush through Lima. It's a city that definitely merits at least two full days. Full of character with some amazing museums (the Larco Museum is definitely worth a visit), plenty of art in the neighbourhood of Barranco and some amazing restaurants.
Kerry Ann Govier
If you are staying in Aguas Calientes, get up early and take the first bus up to Machu Picchu. You might not have the site all to yourself but you'll beat the crowds arriving when the trains start arriving from Cusco and Ollantaytambo.
Experience nature at it's finest in the Peruvian Amazon. Whether you choose to stay in a lodge or spend a few nights on a cruise, the expert guides will be able to spot all kinds of wildlife from butterflies and monkeys to birds of all colours of the rainbow and talk about the daily life of communities living in this vast wilderness.
