Peru is a land of contrasts, where snow-capped mountains meet giant sand dunes and the lush Amazon rainforest, with near-perfect waves to surf and vibrant cities to explore. Travelers to Peru enjoy the living history and modern-day sophistication of Cusco, while foodies relish the beachside ceviche tastings and gastronomic tours of Lima. History buffs transport back in time along the Andean Baroque circuit and in Machu Picchu, and the Moche Route lends visitors a glimpse of the Moche culture which thrived between 100 and 800 AD. Opportunities are endless for nature enthusiasts, who will enjoy extraordinary biodiversity and birdwatching, along with unbarred access to the Amazon River via river cruising. With such natural wonders, Peru abounds with outdoor and adventure offerings. Visitors can camp and hike in the Colca Canyon, or enjoy bird-watching, kayaking, and underwater hunting at Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world. Thrill seekers catch waves along the Northern Coast and go sand dune surfing in Huacachina. Home to three distinct geographic regions, from the scenic Peruvian coastline to the Highlands and the captivating Amazon Forest, Peru offers a wealth of tourism experiences that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.
