Peru adventure

Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expertJane's verdict
Peru is famed for its lost Inca cities – including magical Machu Picchu – but who knew it also had stunning Pacific surf beaches? Take a private tour of this vast fascinating country, from snowy peaks to lush Amazonian rainforest, staying in local hotels and lodges. Go trekking together or simply sit back and soak up those views. Truly a trip of a lifetime.

Peru is the perfect destination to get married life off to an adventurous start. From the dizzy heights of Machu Picchu to the depths of the rainforest and its far reaching coastline, Peru offers unforgettable experiences which will provide memories for your lifetime.

  • Bespoke private tours
  • Excellent value
  • Hike to Machu Picchu

You could call Peru our heartland. We have been creating holidays there for over 30 years and even have our own offices in Lima and Cusco (as well as our head office in the UK) so our local team is always close at hand.

Here are our top five Peru honeymoon highlights.

– Hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. This is on everyone’s ‘to do’ list on a visit to Peru. Our expert guide will be on hand to ensure you head off at the most comfortable times and stay at the peak of your physical fitness.

– Discover the Amazon, the world’s largest rainforest which supports thousands of species of flora, fauna and wildlife. Head off on foot or in a canoe.

– Relax on the beaches in the north. Mancura offers some of the best beaches in Peru with the added bonus that it is a huge wine producing region so you combine a few days on the beach with a vineyard tour en route.

– Explore Lake Titicaca. Immerse yourselves in the local culture on a trip to Taquile Island and enjoy the breath-taking views across the lake and out to the Royal Range.

– Lima. From the cathedral, churches and museums to the famous and historical Plaza Mayor, Lima is packed with rich history and terrific shopping too.

We offer a range of tailor-made private tours in Peru and can create any itinerary to suit your interests and available time. You’ll find our prices very reasonable.

To whet your appetite, our 14-night Highlights of Peru honeymoon ticks every box – Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, the Colca Canyon, Arequipa, the Ballestas Islands and Lima.

If it’s all about Machu Picchu – and time is short – check out our Salkantay Trek. Accommodation is in comfortable mountain lodges en route. It’s physically demanding and not your typical honeymoon but what a breathtaking way to start your married lives together.

Adventurous couples will also love our Peru & Bolivia Highlights itinerary, taking you from Lima to La Paz via Machu Picchu, the Amazonian jungle and Bolivia’s spectacular Uyuni salt flats.

We have a number of honeymooners who opt to join one of our small group tours – they are very keenly-priced, so great for tighter budgets, and we can always add on a tailor-made few days just for the two of you – the Galapagos perhaps?

Peru works year-round, but the weather is at its best between May and November.

To top it all, British Airways now flies from Gatwick to Lima three times a week.
