Peru is a meandering mosaic of captivating cities, historical splendours, and natural wonders. From the buzzing metropolis of Lima to the hidden treasures of Southern Peru, let us guide you through the country's most adored holiday haunts.


Dubbed the ‘City of Kings', Lima is a vibrant fusion of colonial elegance and cosmopolitan chic. With its world-class museums, eclectic nightlife, and the most exciting food scene in South America, Lima poses an irresistible allure for all types of travellers.


Situated in the Peruvian Andes, Cusco is the gateway to the Inca empire, offering a treasure trove of ancient sites, colourful markets and a thriving arts scene. The city is a dizzying mix of cobbled streets, charming plazas, and old-world charm that adds a magical touch to its unique appeal.

Machu Picchu

No holiday to Peru is complete without a trip to the legendary Incan citadel, Machu Picchu. This UNESCO World Heritage site is a historical gem in the heart of the Andes, promising awe-inspiring views, a mesmerising Sunrise and a mystical air that's hard to describe but impossible to forget.


Proudly holding the title of the 'White City', Arequipa charms visitors with its striking volcanic stone architecture, vivid local life, and its proximity to the deepest canyon in the world, Colca Canyon. A trip here is perfect for history buffs and nature lovers alike.


Accessible only by boat or plane, Iquitos is a vibrant gateway to the remote and wild wonders of the Amazon rainforest. Embark on thrilling jungle excursions, experience profound local cultures, and encounter bio-diverse wildlife habitats on a trip to the world's largest city inaccessible by road.

Where to Stay

Where you choose to stay in Peru can turn your holiday into an extraordinary adventure. Be it an intimate boutique hotel, a luxury city suite or a rustic jungle lodge, here are some of the top accommodation options for your visit to Peru.

For a family holiday

Peru holds a bewitching charm for families. Base yourself in the kid-friendly districts of Miraflores or San Isidro in Lima, where world-class museums, parks and potential day trips to ancient pyramids will keep younger ones entertained.

For a couples holiday

Couples seeking romantic vistas and charming escapes should make their way to the Sacred Valley. With luxury lodges offering Andean-style spas and intimate candlelit dinners, it's the perfect retreat after trekking the exhilarating paths to Machu Picchu.

For a holiday with friends

For a thrilling adventure with friends, opt for an Amazonian escape in Iquitos. Comfortable river cruises to wildlife-rich hotspots or eco-lodges situated deep in the jungle promise a blend of relaxation and excitement in equal measure.

When to Visit

The best time to visit Peru largely depends on your plans. For those aiming to trek the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, May to September, during the dry winter season, is your best bet for clear days, although nights in the Andes can be quite chilly. If a wildlife cruise in the Amazon is on your itinerary, choose the wetter months between November and April, for shorter travel times on the swollen rivers and a once in a lifetime chance to navigate the flooded forest ecosystems. Lima and the coastal regions bask in pleasant weather from December to April, making it a beautiful setting for a winter escape. Rain or shine, every day is ideal for a culinary exploration, as Peru's gastronomic scene is active year-round.
