Enjoy Peru like no other

Machu Picchu background.jpg

Peru is a country that conjures up vivid, archetypal images of South America – the brightly coloured traditional dress of the Andean people, lilting pan-pipe music and soaring archaeological sites set deep between high mountains.

The Explorations Company, where no two journeys have ever been the same

The vivid colours, history and music of Peru are an integral part of the rich tapestry of this wonderful country. Add to this some intriguing and diverse treasures, from high altiplano to dense jungle, to discover beyond the spectacular Inca citadel at Machu Picchu, the primary draw for most visitors whilst on a luxury holiday to Peru.

If you crave remote and jaw-droppingly beautiful mountain landscapes, don’t miss out on taking the crossing through Bolivia into the Atacama Desert. There’s also some stunning trekking in South America and climbing to experience along the Cordillera of the Andes. Paddle slowly through water lily-strewn streams on the look-out for monkeys and sloths along the Amazon River, or cross the high altiplano leisurely by train, soaking up some majestic Andean vistas.

If you love your history, go beyond the better-known Inca sites to explore well off-the-beaten-track archaeological finds in the north of the country and discover the remains of sophisticated ancient cultures, some of which pre-date the Incas – from intricately carved adobe cities to magnificent painted temple frescoes or remote hilltop walled cities. Wherever you choose to go on your luxury holiday in Peru, expect diversity, gastronomy and the warmest welcome from the Peruvian people.

As a wonderful family holiday destination, Peru is the perfect introduction to Latin America, with a fabulous selection of hotels and rustic lodges. It also makes for an excellent compliment to any itinerary that takes in neighbouring Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands, or also Bolivia and luxury Chile holidays for those who seek some rugged adventure.

Whether it’s exploring tiny local markets, trekking to little-known Inca sites where you might be the only people in the visitor’s book that day, or being guided by some expert historians, our first-hand knowledge and expertise will ensure that when you travel with us, you’ll enjoy the most extraordinary tailormade luxury Peruvian experience.
