Empire of hidden treasures.
The mysterious wonders of Peru have captivated travelers for centuries. Home to ancient civilizations and European colonies, this South American destination offers a diverse climate and culture, unlike anything you have experienced before.
Your Peru Adventure Tour will feature highlights that include exploring Lake Titicaca and the ancient temple site of Pachacamac, as well as the Lima LDS Temple (optional) and the ancient Inca capital of Cuzco. And, of course, no Peruvian expedition would be complete without an extended stay in and exploration of Machu Pichu, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Peru Adventure Tours Hold Natural Wonders
Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world, lies near the Peruvian border with Bolivia. Here you will learn of the Uros, artificial islands originally created to provide defensive strongholds, now home to indigenous peoples. Ancient Pachacamac, located outside of Lima, is one of the world’s most valued archeological sites. Pachacamac is noted for Incan pyramids and other structures as well as 2,000-year-old frescoes celebrating the region’s piscesean heritage.
Machu Pichu, known among travelers as the Lost City of the Incas, perches atop a mountainous ridge in the Andes. A World Heritage Site and historical sanctuary, the city showcases the ancient Inca style of architecture. Constructed in the 1400s as an estate for the Incan Emperor, Pachacuti, this marvel of human ingenuity and perseverance looks down upon the sacred Urubamba River valley. Agriculture thrives today, alongside relics of the Spanish Colonial occupation.
Our Peru tour adventures offer you a rare and amazing two-night stay in the rainforest of the Amazon River basin. The Peruvian Amazon presents a biodiverse ecosystem sustained by ample rainfall and a temperate climate, giving rise to more than 20,000 species of flora and fauna.
Native and colonial cultures create an environment rich in tradition and artisanal character. Incredible music and authentic cuisine will punctuate your exploration of cultural, spiritual and architectural relics.
