Central + South America

    Holiday to Peru

    Colonial cities, lakes, rainforest and ancient ruins combine to make a perfect introduction to South America.

    While the city of Cuzco and the dramatic Inca site of Machu Picchu should be included in any first-time itinerary, we always try to pair them with something more off the beaten track to create a truly unforgettable, luxury holiday in Peru.

    Experience treks which most do not know about, private access to museums, leisurely lunches in quirky locations and Amazon expeditions with world-class naturalist guides. Our network of contacts makes pretty much anything possible.
    With our expert planning, you can take a private trek to remote villages and ruins in the Sacred Valley, ride on horseback to visit the condors in the spectacular Colca Valley, travel by luxury train through Andean landscapes and also spend time on the magical islands of Lake Titicaca or in a remote Amazonian lodge.

    When I reflect back on my time in South America, my mind always drifts back to meandering through the Peruvian Andes. I was fortunate enough to be a passenger for two nights onboard the Belmond Andean Explorer, the first and only luxury sleeper train in Peru.

    With a population of almost 11 million, Lima is Peru’s biggest and busiest city. It is also seen as the gateway to the country, with regular flights coming and going each day, often used as a quick stopover on the way to other places. However, with the development of Barranco, among other factors, this is quickly changing.

    Historical, cosmopolitan, packed full of culture and with a great atmosphere, Cuzco is undoubtedly one of the coolest cities in Peru. The ultimate place to stay is Belmond Palacio Nazarenas. A converted, 17th-century convent built on Inca foundations, it is steeped in history and ideally located in the city centre.

    In the week prior to me going to the Sacred Valley, I would often be asked, “Where are you staying next?” When I mentioned Sol y Luna, it was always followed by “ohhs!” and “ahhs!”. So to say my expectations began to soar was an understatement.
    The term ‘family holiday’ is dizzyingly broad. It does not take into account ages, numbers, interests or needs. All it really gives you is a timings framework, and for a long-haul big bells and whistles trip, it is likely you will be looking to go in summer, with its long stretch of possibilities.
    Peru is a country of true variety, but this of course means that it’s very popular amongst visitors. We like to use adventure as a way to experience the sites from a different angle and without the crowds.
