Peru is the birthplace of a culture. This diverse South American country is brimming with fascinating cultural sites and stunning landscapes, from the bustlings streets of Cusco – one of South America’s oldest continuously-inhabited settlements – to the famous ruins of Machu Picchu.
This country is where the Incan Empire was born, and the vestiges of this rich history are visible to this day. Explore the market streets of Cusco, gaze over the ancient Sacred Valley, and hike with alpacas through the spectacular Andes mountains all the way to the Sun Gate of Machu Picchu itself. Along the way, you will find countless natural and cultural curiosities, be it bubbling hot springs or prehistoric wall carvings.
