Peru Family Holidays

Peru Family holidays background.jpg

June to September is the ideal time for family holidays in Peru – coinciding nicely with the school summer holidays, when days are warm, dry and sunny, and nights are cool in the Andean highlands.

At this time, it is also low water season in the Amazon Basin, which means fewer mosquitoes and great fishing for piranha!

Peru is not just about traipsing around ancient ruins, although even the most jaded teenager will be astounded by their first view of the spectacular Inca citadel at Machu Picchu, nestled amid sheer mountain sides.

There's also the exhilarating climb up Huayna Picchu peak behind for adrenalin junkies, where you are rewarded with amazing views.

Active families will love the variety of options whilst on Peru family holidays, from sand-boarding down vast desert dunes near the coast to white water rafting the Andean rivers, and from swimming and fishing for piranha in the Amazon or kayaking on Lake Titicaca.

Combine this with discovering very traditional local highland communities and some fantastic lowland wildlife and you have an incredible Peru family holiday packed full of experiences.

We can arrange for you to go horse-riding either in the Andes or on the coast, cruise along the Amazon River looking out for pink river dolphins, visit a spectacled bear rescue project (the original ‘Paddington Bear’), or even have your fortune told in the cocoa leaves by the local shaman.
