Ancient Inca Civilisation, Andean Mountain Landscapes & Amazon Rainforest

Discover a country famed for its Inca ruins, dramatic landscapes and rich culture, where rural life and proud local traditions remain intact today. It is a living museum of the great Inca civilization, blended with colonial influences from the Spanish Conquistadors.

Journey through the immense Amazon rainforest and admire the powerful Andean mountain range, in between which lies the Inca heartland of Cusco, the fertile Sacred Valley, the lost citadel of Machu Picchu and magical Lake Titicaca. Clinging to the Pacific Coast we find the mysterious Nazca Lines, the White City of Arequipa and the Colca Canyon, home of the condor. Further north lies the vibrant city of Lima, the culinary capital of South America.
