On our Discovery Peru, you can introduce your family to the mysteries of the Incas and the vibrant traditions of the Andes on this fascinating journey to Peru. Discovery Peru will take you into Inca fortresses and to towns built of giant boulders. You will become immersed in the swirl of colors and crafts at an ancient village market. Go hiking among hidden treasures in Machu Picchu. 

Start your Discovery Peru in the cobbled streets of the Historic Center of Lima. Lima is a great South American city. Peru’s capital can hold its own against any neighboring capital city with its oceanfront setting, colonial-era splendor, sophisticated dining, and nonstop nightlife. Then continue through the natural wonders of Tambopata National Reserve. Next you will enjoy the beauty of Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas, the breathtaking Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, the sapphire blue of Lake Titicaca and the deepest canyon in the world, Colca Canyon near Arequipa. As you journey around our country, you will experience the diverse ecosystems of the Andes, from ice-clad, high-alpine slopes to lush cloud forests with tropical orchids.
