Tailormade Peru

A Tailormade holiday to Peru gives you the flexibility to include as little or as much as you wish. From visiting Inca ruins to pre-Colombian pyramids, kayaking on Lake Titicaca to hiking in the Sacred Valley, and searching for condors in Colca Canyon to spotting sloths in the Amazon - there is something to suit all tastes in Peru!

Machu Picchu is undoubtedly Peru’s most iconic destination. Whether you’ve trekked for days or taken the scenic train ride, it is an awe-inspiring site. Hike up Machu Picchu Mountain or Huayna Picchu for a different perspective of the citadel. Outside of Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley has so much more to see. Visit the salt pans at Maras, the colourful market at Pisac, the distinctive circular terraces in Moray and the Inca ruins of Chincero and Ollantaytambo. You could easily spend days seeing all the sights around the valley.

A Tailormade holiday to northern Peru will allow you to discover sites built by the pre-Incan civilisations of the Moche and Chimu people. Here the architecture is totally different. Chan Chan is a vast adobe city, El Brujo pyramid has colourful images and the remarkable ruins at Kuelap are not to be missed.

The Amazon takes up a huge 60% of Peru. Puerto Maldonado is the starting point for the Tambopata Reserve. Here you can explore the jungle on foot to learn all about the trees and plants, and their medicinal values, explore meandering rivers by boat to look for wildlife and visit a clay lick to see hundreds of parrots and parakeets. Iquitos, in the northern reaches of the Amazon is only accessible by water. Staying on a boat is a relaxing way to observe daily life along the river and spot pink river dolphins, while the small motor boats afford the opportunity to get up close to some of the area’s wildlife.

Whether it’s your first time to Peru or you’re a returning visitor, on an Explore Tailormade holiday to Peru we will create a bespoke itinerary for you, based around what you want to see and do.

Country Information

The Lost City

The first time you see Machu Picchu is a special and exciting moment. Despite the countless images nothing prepares you for its majestic setting, shrouded in mist within the mountains.

Meeting the locals

Visiting Misminay village is a rewarding and genuine encounter with local Andeans. Learning about everyday life from the proud villagers is a fascinating insight into Andean life and their spiritual beliefs.

The mighty Amazon

Float along the calm waters of the Amazon, accompanied by the chorus of early morning jungle sounds. See blue and yellow macaw, cock-of-the-rock and toucans among over 1000 bird species in the area, and search for tiny frogs, caimans, monkeys, giant river otters and sloths.

Beaches

Head north from Lima and you'll discover wonderful white sand beaches in the Mancora region. Stay on Vichayito Beach for swimming, water-sports and relaxation.

Walks and treks

The Inca Trail is possibly the most well-known trek in Peru but why not try the Salkantay trek, Lares trail or the tougher Choquequirao route along the Inca trail. Alternatively there are plenty of day walks that can be arranged around the Sacred Valley.

Northern Peru

Compared to the Sacred Valley and southern regions of Peru, the north is little visited yet it has some fascinating sites. Visit the Moche pyramids near Trujillo and the Chimu city, Chan Chan. Chiclayo is home to the tomb of the Lord of Sipan and Lambayeque with its impressive museums.
