    Holidays to Peru

"Peru, Peru. My heart’s lighthouse."

Steven Morrissey

Mysterious ruins, lonely mountain peaks and a fascinating culture await, as you explore the enigma of Peru

Long and thin, Peru stretches a staggering 1,500 miles along South America’s Pacific coastline, and is bordered by Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, Bolivia and Chile. As you travel inland from the coast, arid desert gives way to fertile valleys and the lofty peaks of the Andean cordillera, before plunging down into a vast tract of tropical Amazon rainforest.

This is a land home to an incredible array of both natural and manmade wonders, with a mind-boggling number of pre-Columbian ruins to explore and a veritable kaleidoscope of plant and animal wildlife. Follow in the footsteps of explorer Hiram Bingham and discover the majestic Machu Picchu, learn about tribal cultures in the Sacred Valley and set a tentative foot on to the floating reed islands of high-altitude Lake Titicaca.
