Family Holidays in Peru

Peru is a fascinating country and a really special destination for a family holiday. Adults and children alike will marvel at spectacular Inca cities and enjoy seeing weird-looking animals such as llamas and vicunas. Peru’s climate makes it suitable to visit all year round, but the months between April and October are the driest and sunniest. Some parts of Peru are at high altitude so time should be considered with families to acclimatise.

The old Inca city of Cusco is an exciting place to wander around cobbled back streets and markets. Nearby the Sacred Valley offers a range of exciting activities such as whitewater rafting, mountain biking and horse riding.

Other highlights of Peru include Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world. Children will be fascinated by its floating Uros Islands. Also worth a visit is Colca Canyon, twice as deep as the Grand Canyon and a great place to spot condors.

Finally, for families with more time and wanting to experience life in the rainforest, a visit to the Peruvian Amazon will not disappoint.
