A honeymoon in Peru is an adventure-filled start to any marriage! Peru offers a stunning array of landscapes, from snow-capped mountains to desert plains, as well as archaeological sites to visit, ancient cultures to explore and incredible wildlife to observe. Summer is the perfect time to trek the heights of Machu Picchu and the jungles of the Amazon.
- Backpack along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu
- Go sailing on Lake Titicaca
- Tour the historic and religious sites of Lima
- Explore Peruvian cuisine with a gastronomical tour
Machu Picchu is an adventure in itself – a rigorous hike through the cloud forest and subtropical jungle to reach the famous Incan ruins. But did you know there are natural hot tubs nearby? Aguas Calientes is home to natural thermal pools where you can relax just a few miles away from the ruins.
Lake Titicaca is renowned as the world's highest navigable lake, and if you choose to explore it, you might encounter an island built entirely of floating reeds, or the ancient village of Taquile.
Sightseeing in Lima usually includes the famous landmarks (the Santo Domingo Convent, Cathedral of Lima and the Lima Historical Center), as well as the vibrant city life and bustling markets!
For adventurous foodies, why not try a walking food tour? These guided experiences offer a sampling of Peruvian dishes from street vendors, bars and first-class restaurants. There's a reason Lima has become a food mecca! And don't miss out on imbibing a pisco sour, Peru's national cocktail.
