Discover Peru

  • Magnificent Machu Picchu

    Perched high atop the Andes Mountains, Machu Picchu, the "Lost City of the Incas", is a testament to the Inca Empire's engineering and architectural prowess. Travelers can reach Machu Picchu by taking either the Inca Trail, the Salkantay Trek, or the Lares Route. All three routes offer stunning views of the Andes Mountains and the Sacred Valley.

  • Cities to visit in Peru

    Former capital of the Inca Empire, Cusco is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to Machu Picchu. In contrast, Lima is a bustling metropolis with exquisite museums, Peruvian cuisine, and a dazzling coastline. Arequipa boasts stunning white-washed colonial architecture and treks in nearby Colca Canyon while Ayacucho is a must for travelers interested in pre-Columbian and colonial history.

  • Natural wonders

    From its snow-capped peaks to its lush Amazon rainforest, Peru is a wealth of natural wonders. Many travelers opt for the vastness of Lake Titicaca, the breathtaking colorful hues of the Rainbow Mountains or the turquoise waters and cascading waterfalls of Millpu Pools, while others choose to explore the depths of Colca Canyon or marvel at Cerro Blanco’s towering sand dunes.

  • Inca and ancient civilizations

    Peru's indigenous heritage and Inca civilization have long intrigued travelers. Massive fortresses such as Ollantaytambo and Saqsaywaman fortresses are spectacular examples of Inca architectural engineering. Visit the mysterious Nazca Lines geoglyphs or the Sacred Valley, home to Inca ruins and traditional villages. Or head to Paracas National Reserve to discover archaeological remains of the ancient Paracas culture.
