Things to Do in Peru
From trekking, to eating, to cruising the Amazon there are many things to do in Peru. We recommend that you enjoy Peru's amazing food revolution, fabulous museums and an evening pena in the country's capital Lima. You can also stay in a remote rainforest lodge to experience the beauty of the Amazonian basin and thrill to the sounds, smells and sights of the jungle where monkeys play and jaguars prowl.
Alternatively, trek through the high Andes through remote villages and epic scenery on the way to Machu Picchu or Choquequirao. Find out the best time to visit Peru for the things that you want to do there. Our Peru travel specialists have designed a range of tours of Peru that help you to maximise your time and experiences there. They bring together highlights of Peru around interests, geographic areas or the amount of time you have. Staying in some of the hotels in Peru are experiences in of themselves as gorgeous colonial properties and authentic 16th century buildings have been converted into top class accommodation.
