Peru is scattered with ancient ruins and archaeological sites, a sign of a long lost master civilisation – the most notable being Machu Picchu – perhaps a land that time erased, but one that will never be forgotten. The country also boasts some of the most welcoming and vibrant modern cities in the world – one of which is Cuzco, the archaeological capital of the Americas, with its bustling craft markets and thriving local boutiques selling local alpaca wool and ornaments.
No trip to Peru would be complete without sampling the mouth-watering cuisine – tangy pisco sours, seafood ceviche, fiery chilli, Amazonian cocoa and corn tortillas to name but a few.
It is the mystery of Peru that makes it such a unique destination. It’s raw spirit lies in its mountain-top citadels and modern villages and cities. If you’re after the view of a lifetime, Peru will set your soul soaring.
