Home to an incredible diversity of nature and cultures, Peru is a South American country with so much to offer all types of travellers. Peru is most famous for its ancient Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World! Machu Picchu is located among the undulating mountains and Inca ruins of the Sacred Valley. You’ll also see plenty of friendly llamas and alpacas in this area! 

Peru’s climate is semi-arid, with mild, dry winters and hot, wet summers. Peruvian food is widely regarded as some of the best in the world with ceviche being its national dish. Ceviche combines fresh, raw seafood with citrus juice and flavourful spices. Lima is Peru’s colourful capital city and is known as South America’s culinary capital. Explore Lima’s many excellent restaurants, soak up Peru’s fascinating history at one of the city’s museums and admire the remaining Spanish colonial buildings including the Presidential Palace and the Monastery of San Francisco.
