Where better to start your exploration of the vibrant South American continent with your family than the beautiful and diverse country of Peru. With a fantastic infrastructure, a huge range of delightful accommodation to stay in and an incredible contrast of destinations and activities as well as relatively easy access, Peru makes for a wonderful first time destination for travellers to South America.
We love arranging Peru family holidays and have done so on many occasions. Stay in a delightful small property in the Andes where you can choose a whole array of active adventures. Adrenalin junkies and families with older children might indulge in mountain biking, ATV tours, white-water rafting, hiking or horse-riding. Younger kids would be fascinated by the local communities with their colourful local costumes and by the local museum where they can try classes that can teach them how to make their own chocolate. There are colourful festivals and dances, a chance to try weaving the amazing textiles and opportunities for your children to meet their children and try a few words of Spanish?
The possibilities are endless. Once you have exhausted them by exploring the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, find out more about the real ‘Paddington Bear’, the rare bespectacled bear at a rescue project in the same region. You can all ponder the giant shapes and mysteries of the Nazca Lines etched in the desert from a small charter plane and try sandboarding down endless dunes or surfing near to the coast. Learn about the stars of the southern skies from an observatory overlooking Lake Titicaca high in the altiplano and meet a local shaman who will perform ancient Inca ceremonies. Head deep into dense and lush rainforest following the mighty route of the Amazon River and where you will all be entranced by the sight of the unique and bizarre pink river dolphins as well as vivid macaws and giant river otters. Explore hiking trails through the jungle looking out for frogs, reptiles, monkeys, parrots and all manner of creepy crawlies to appall you and enthrall them! However you choose to explore Peru with your family, we can help you find just the right balance for you and places that you will all love to explore, bringing you family memories of a lifetime.
