April to October is best for time for visiting Peru’s Andean region and main highlights. It is typically sunny in the day and cold at night due to altitude. Heavy rains last from December to end of February with January and February being the wettest months. Peru is very popular in the high season, especially during their many cultural festivals such as Inti Raymi on 24 June, so best to book well in advance.
An in-depth exploration of Peru, taking you beyond the key highlights to get under the skin of this incredible and diverse part of South America. Marvel at dramatic scenery in the Sacred valley and Colca Canyon, keeping your eyes peeled for condors, explore the unique Uros Islands of Lake Titicaca, observe sea lions and penguins at the Ballestas Islands and enjoy a privately guided tour of Machu Picchu, discovering the cultural gems of Cuzco, Lima and Arequipa as you go.
A perfect base to start your trip, Lima has plenty to offer visitors, with a wealth of attractions in the colonial centre, fantastic shopping and a world-class dining scene.

A boat trip has been included to observe the hundreds of sea lions and penguins that frequent these rocky outcrops. You may even be fortunate to spot dolphins flipping about playfully in the water! Stay for two nights.

Visit local villages, take a dip in the natural thermal springs and visit the hanging tombs.
Journey east to Puno on the shores of Lake Titicaca, the world's highest navigable lake which straddles the border between Peru and Bolivia. As well as providing a beautiful setting, the lake is also home to the Uros Indians who have built unique islands from Totora reeds on which they reside. Visit the islands by boat and learn the importance of the Totora reeds in everyday life.

Take a train from the Sacred Valley to Aguas Calientes, the jumping off point for Machu Picchu. Head straight to this magical site for a guided tour and get stuck into the brutal Inca history before returning to Aguas Calientes for the night. In the morning, return to Machu Picchu and enjoy a hike up Huayna Picchu for spectacular views over the site and its dramatic surroundings before boarding the train back to Cuzco.
End your trip in Cuzco, the beautiful colonial city which was once the centre of the Inca empire. Stay for two nights in the centre and discover the delights of the city from your hotel which is a short walk from the main plaza. A guided tour has been included to soak in the city's highlights and surrounding ruins, and you'll have free time to stock up on last minute souvenirs from the many boutiques and markets which dot the streets.
