Peru is as complex as its most intricate and exquisite weavings and is the molten core of South America. Visitors pilgrimage to the glorious Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, yet this feted site is just a flash in a 5,000-year history of peoples. Visit the Sacred Valley, tucked under the tawny skirts of formidable foothills and fly over the puzzling geoglyphs etched into the arid earth at Nazca. Lima’s great museums reveal in full detail the sophistication, skill and passion of these lost civilizations. Visit remote communities and see how old ways live on. Immerse yourself, and you will leave Peru a little closer to the past.
Along with providing a look into the past, Peru is also the perfect place to engage in various multi-sport activities. Some of the activities that are offered include world-class hiking, biking, rafting, and horseback riding. All of these activities take you to beautiful mountain settings, where you can interact with local Andean villagers and explore historic, “off-the-beaten-path” ruins.
