Peru is one of the most captivating countries in South America. Its awe-inspiring scenery varies from the wild Amazon jungles to vast coastal deserts and the icy peaks of the Andes. The lost Incan citadel of Machu Picchu is a highlight for many travellers.
But there is so much more. Peru hosts a biodiversity rarely seen within the limits of a single country, with a list of spectacular wildlife far beyond the well-known llamas and circling condors. On top of all that, Peru’s friendly, multi-ethnic people are a cultural treasure on their own. Unbeknown to many, Peru is also one of the world’s leading culinary destinations, and Lima is without doubt the food capital of South America.
