Boasting no less than ten UNESCO World Heritage sites and ranking amongst the world's top eight nations in terms of biodiversity, any travel to Peru will allow you to enjoy a land of contrasts and a country brimming with culture, legend, folklore and fascination.

With over 1,700 birds, 400 species of mammals, 300 reptiles, and 50,000 plants registered to date, 14% of Peru is designated as Protected Natural Areas.

From the dryness of the Atacama Desert to the frozen ice-capped peaks and plunging canyons of the Andes. Across the waters of Lake Titicaca, to the rainforests of the Amazon Basin, scattered remnants of ancient civilisations bring the incredible history of Latin America alive.

Known as the ‘Egypt of South America’, the country is brimming with historical sites, from the ancient fortress of Kuelap to the mysterious Nazca Lines. But without doubt, the jewel in Peru’s crown is the legendary Machu Picchu, which in 2007 was voted one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.

Whether you are looking for archaeology and culture, excellent cuisine or activity and adventure, you will find it all in one of Chimu Adventures’ Peru tours. chimuadventures.com/country/peru
