Hand-crafted Travel to Peru

Peru is a country with a rich tapestry of cultures. Discover ancient citadels embraced by Andean canyons, remote jungle lodges deep in the Amazon rainforest, and arid deserts pounded by the Pacific Ocean. Combine mountain adventures with The Arts in Lima and colonial treasures in Cusco, and our luxury holidays in Peru will surprise you at every turn.

If you are keen to travel knowing you are giving back to the country, Peru has some excellent initiatives that directly support local communities. The Sol y Luna hotel in the heart of the Sacred Valley provides education for children living in remote villages. In the Amazon, our favourite rainforest lodges support vast nature reserves to preserve trees and wildlife from deforestation, and in Lima, boutique hotels fund up-and-coming artistic talents.

While Peru is visitable all year-round, the best time to go from a weather perspective is during the dry season in the Andes, which starts in May and ends in September. During these months, the nights will be cool but the sun is strong during the day, temperatures get to the early to mid 20s and your chances of a rainy day are pretty slim. Bear in mind that during the UK/US school summer holidays (July/August) will be the busiest time to visit the country in terms of the number of other tourists you’re likely to encounter. If you can, I would advise travelling over the shoulder season, which is April/May or October/November, where the weather is generally still good but there are less crowds, which is a real blessing!

The only months we would advise avoiding if travelling to the mountains is December to February, where the rains are at their heaviest and some excursions may be disrupted as a result. The famous Inca trail, for example, is closed for the month of February due to the rains causing muddy and potentially unsafe conditions for hiking.

Peru Hotspots

Peru’s rich history, diverse landscapes, and vibrant traditions make it a must visit destination for all types of traveller. Lima, the capital, combines historic charm with culinary excellence. Cusco, the gateway to Machu Picchu, dazzles with Inca ruins. Explore the Sacred Valley‘s ancient sites and vibrant markets. The Amazon Rainforest beckons with biodiversity.

Machu Pichu

The world’s most famous Inca site should be explored between late April and early October when the skies tend to be clear with less chance of mountain mist. However, it doesn’t matter what the weather is doing when you arrive at Machu Picchu; you will be overwhelmed by this unforgettable experience. In the hands of a guide, you will learn the intricate details of how this citadel operated and discover a new awareness of space and time. The backdrop of jagged mountains is breathtakingly beautiful, and your guide will always allow plenty of time to sit in peace and let the magic of Machu Picchu sink in.

Lake Titicaca

Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world, located at 12,507ft (3,812m) and straddles the border of Peru and Bolivia, who are constantly disputing who has the more beautiful side of the lake!

When travelling from the Peru side, one of our favourite ways to reach the highest navigable lake on earth is by train. Travelling from Cusco to Puno along some of the highest train routes in the world, the view from your window is a display of magnificent Andean scenery. Stylish accommodation is scarce in this region, but the timeless waters of Lake Titicaca are worth the journey. Discover floating islands made entirely from totora reeds where small communities dressed in brightly patterned clothing go about their daily lives.
