Peru Family Adventure SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Lima is a large, fascinating hotchpotch of architectural styles, coastal scenes, world cuisines, impressive museums, traditional culture and modern arts and nightlife.
Catch a flight to the jungle outpost town of Puerto Maldonado. Then head upriver into the heart of the Amazon and learn from local guides about the flora and fauna that make this one of the world's greatest cradles of biodiversity.
Cuzco is the gateway to Machu Picchu and a city with majestic architecture, impressive ruins, a lively town centre and cultural significance around every cobblestone corner.
Travel through the Sacred Valley to the small, traditional town of Pisac. Spend some time wandering the colourful market - if you're after some authentic Andes souvenirs, this is the place. Visit a local farm for an insight into regional life, and then take a walk out to the Inca ruins dotting the surrounding landscape.
Continue on through the Sacred Valley to the tiny town of Ollantaytambo. The extensive layers of fortified rock-wall terraces are an impressive sight to behold, and an astounding feat of engineering ingenuity.
Built sometime in the 15th century and rediscovered in 1911, the staggering ruins of Machu Picchu were thought to be an estate for the Incan emperor, Pachacuti.
Cuzco is one of Peru's most attractive cities, and well worth spending some extra time here if you have it.
