Re-discovered in 1911 by explorer Hiram Bingham, the UNESCO archaeological site of Machu Picchu is the jewel in Peru's crown. But while the 2,500 metre high ancient settlement is what most people travel to Peru to see, the vast country has a number of awe-inspiring sights to capture the hearts of travellers.

From the bio-diverse Amazon rainforest, to mountainous valleys, cloud forests and the World's deepest canyon, Colca Canyon, Peru is a geologically diverse country with delectable cuisine, bustling cities and friendly inviting communities and there is an array of escorted tours to sample the amazing culture.
