Peru is a country where you could explore a fantastic food scene in its capital, Lima, before heading out to its dramatic natural and historical landscapes, including segments of the Amazon rainforest and the Andes mountain range, and the incredible Machu Picchu site. Brightsun Travel has exclusive holidays to Peru that will take you to the country’s highlights. Let’s start in Lima, Peru’s vibrant capital city, where you can eat in some of the best restaurants in Latin America, if not the world, and explore a fast-developing urban arts scene. In Lima you could spend your days exploring art, relaxing in fantastic parks and admiring a range of colonial architecture. For food lovers, Lima is a dream. All across the city you could sample its national dish, ceviche, in traditional eateries, sip pisco sours from cool cocktail bars, and dine at some of the most incredible restaurants in the region. Then, the Museo de Arte de Lima or MALI is an artistic highlight. Or, head to the smart neighbourhood Barranco and you could explore picturesque streets lined with local and international galleries.
Away from its capital, Peru offers another world to explore. The highlight for many is the Inca city of Machu Picchu, an ancient city that attracts visitors in their thousands every day. To access the site you could take a short flight from Lima to Cuzco, and board a 3 hour train journey into the heart of the city. Once you are there you can marvel at incredible Inca ruins, and take in spectacular views of the site’s surrounding landscapes. For a quieter historical site, but no less dramatic, you could head to Kuélap, a ruined citadel city nestled in the mountains, offering pre-Columbian ruins and exceptional views of the mountains. Travelling the rest of the country, you could explore floating islands, hike the highest tropical mountain range in the world, the Cordillera Blanca, and visit breath-taking National Parks. The Parque Nacional Manu boasts segments of the Andes mountains, plus cloud forests and rainforests that provide sanctuary to a range of flora and fauna. And in the Reserva Nacional Pacaya-Samiria, the largest park in the country, you can spot jaguars in its forests and dolphins in its oceans.
