Best Times of Year to Visit Peru

The best time to visit Peru depends on what kind of holiday you are planning.

Because of its proximity to the equator, Peru’s seasons are the opposite of those in the UK - while it’s summer in the UK, it’s winter in Peru and vice versa. So, if you want a relaxing coastal break or an adventurous hiking holiday in the sun, it’s best to travel during the Northern hemisphere’s autumn and winter months.

It’s also important to remember that Peru experiences wet and dry seasons, with Peru’s rainy season at its peak between December and March. However, there are still many ways to avoid the wet weather and enjoy this beautiful country if you’re travelling at this time.

Below are some of our favourite ways to enjoy Peru’s vibrant culture and stunning scenery, no matter the time of year.
