Ancient Peru

Good to know facts about Peru, South America


Marvel at the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu


Machu Picchu

Peru’s poster child, a mysterious mountaintop citadel built by the Incas in the 15th century 


Once the capital of the Inca empire, this stunning city in the foothills of the Andes is rich with Spanish colonial architecture

Colca Canyon

One of the world’s deepest canyons, and home to the endangered Andean condor


Blazing white with its baroque buildings of white sillar stone, this stunning city is overlooked by three volcanic peaks


Peru’s colourful, cultural capital, stuffed with fantastic architecture and even better restaurants


There are few other countries whose name alone evokes such a singular sense of adventure – of mist-swirled mountain peaks, wildlife-rich Amazon rainforest and myth-shrouded ancient ruins. You don’t have to try hard to get off the beaten path here, while high-end contemporary comforts and world-class dining are more commonplace than you might think.

Peru is inherently safe, but travelling in small groups – with someone who knows the lay of the land, and can tap into the local way of life – is the best way to experience it. In light of that, might we humbly suggest our immersive nine-day Ancient Peru Epic Trip as the ideal way to see the best the country has to offer, with the added benefit of being accompanied by a Local Insider – a human key to unique and authentic experiences.
