Lima is the capital of Peru and it lies on the country's arid Pacific coast. Though its colonial center is preserved, it's a bustling metropolis and one of South America’s largest cities. Many of our guests choose to stay in the relative calm Miraflores area or the bohemian Barranco.

With Peru being the World Culinary Destination for five years straight between 2011-2016. Lima is the perfect opportunity to experience the amazing food that Peru has to offer on a hold day Bike Food Tour.
The Nazca Lines are a series of large ancient geoglyhs located in the Nazca desert, in Southern Peru. The largest figures are up to 370 meters long. They were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.
Scholars believe that the lines were created between 500BC and 500AD by the Nazca Culture but the significance of the lines is still debated by Archaeologists, Mathematicians, Astrologists and Sciences.
It may be best for you to take a flight over the lines and decide for yourself!
Arequipa, is a beautiful colonial city, famed amongst Peruvians for its regional food such as the Rocotto Relleno. It has impressive colonial sights such as the Santa Catalina Monastery and for all those adventurers, it is surrounded by three volcanoes all of which can be climbed. The highest of the three volcanoes, Chachani, is one of the easiest 6000 meter summits anywhere in the world.
Furthermore, Arequipa is the gateway to the Colca Canyon, one of the deepest Canyons in the world.
The Colca Canyon is renowned throughout Peru for incredible trekking, twice as deep as the Grand Canyon and one of the best places to see Condors in Peru, this is a not to miss part of your trip.
We suggest our two day trek, that lets you explore this increíble bit of geology.
Lake Titicaca, the birthplace of the Incas, the highest navigable water in the world and one of the largest lakes in South America, it is one not to miss.
To really experience the authentic Lake Titicaca, we suggest staying away from the over visited classic two day tour, and rather choose an eco-friendly and sustainable tour, working closely with local families. If you are feeling fit there is the option to Kayak across the Lake (well not all across the lake but for a couple of hours!) or even go for a run around the island of Amantani.
For any nature lover, the Amazon region of Peru is a must do. You have both Puerto Maldonado and Manu National Park to choose from. Each boasting incredible scenery and wildlife.
Stay in an Amazon lodge where you are away from computers, television and wi-fi, go on night expeditions looking for wildlife or kayak with Caimans. You will return refreshed with your batteries re-charged.
