Peru Tours & Travel Packages 2022 and 2023
Why book a 2022 or 2023 Peru tour package?
Peru is located just south of the Equator in west-central South America on the coast of the South Pacific Ocean. To the North, Peru is bordered by Ecuador and Colombia, with Chile to the south and Brazil and Bolivia to the east. Peru is a mountainous country, wedged between the Pacific Ocean and the Amazon jungle. Such diversity of landscape creates the ideal backdrop of a broad range of activities and experiences.
Peru is perhaps best known for the Incan ruins of Machu Picchu, which would be stunning anywhere, but are even more spectacular in their setting against the Andean mountains. That only scrapes the surface, however, as there is so much more to see and do in Peru. You can visit the ancient Incan capital of Cuzco, enjoy unspoiled beaches, take a train ride from Cuzco to Puno for amazing views of Lake Titicaca (the highest navigable lake in the world), or venture into the Amazon rainforest.
When is the best time to travel to Peru?
Peru is a year-round destination, but your best time to travel much depends on the region you are visiting, since the deserts, jungles, and mountain villages all have different climates. Their summer runs December to March and the winter from June to September. The most popular months for tourists to travel to Peru are usually July through September. Due to this, February, March, April, and October are good months to travel for lower prices and smaller crowds. Please note that June through September can be quite humid in Lima. If you are visiting the Amazon, it's hot and humid year-round. Things to do in Peru
There are hundreds of ruins where you can see 10,000 years of history, including the Nasca Lines, referred to as the pyramids of the North, Arequipa, also known as the White City, and Chan Chan, the largest pre-Columbian city in South America. The list goes on and on for a look into the past.
As we mentioned earlier, there are over 1,800 different species of birds in Peru. Visit one of the national reserves to see fascinating wildlife such as river otters, caimans, monkeys, and jaguars. You can also visit the Ballestas Islands, which are known as the Galapagos of Peru. Here you can observe sea lions, penguins, and countless bird species. Active adventures
