Peru, Empire of Hidden Treasures

With what is likely to be one of the world’s most dramatic and easily recognisable ancient ruins in the form of Machu Picchu, Peru is surely a top contender on the bucket lists of travellers across the world. This is the sort of place where Indiana Jones would feel right at home – with ancient temples, dramatic landscapes and forgotten ruins shrouded in mist all adding to the sense of wonder. This is a land of craggy mountain peaks, thick jungle, extraordinary wildlife and the fascinating remnants of the indigenous Incas, stretching back thousands of years. Enjoy this glimpse of Peru and prepare for an adventure!

Peru has a lot to offer; whether it’s an Amazonian experience, a journey to the famous Machu Picchu, a festival to commemorate indigenous – or Christian – gods, buzzing nightlife in Cuzco or delicious – and truly unique – cuisine. If the absurdly deep voice of the movie trailer guy hasn’t convinced you, take a look at our selection of group tours of South America encompassing Peru and beyond.

  1. Hi there. I agree with your thought, that Peru has a lot to offer! My wife, Jean, and I spent close to a month in Peru driving, hiking, flying, canoeing, and riding the rails across the country. We have traveled to several parts of the world, creating wonderful memories, but Peru, however, tops our list.

    The trip to Peru was made memorable because it included such a variety of unique and separate experiences like flying over the Nazca Lines, hiking in the Amazon Jungle, driving into the Andes Mountains to see wild Vicuna, and climbing Huayna Picchu at Machu Picchu. Of course, a vast number of other sights and scenes crossed our paths while in that wonderful country, too. Come check out some of our pictures and stories of our trip in the Amazon at:

  2. Actually…Indy did go to Peru…in the last film.
