Peru Adventures

Adventures in Peru are as varied as the landscape and offer something for every kind of traveler, no matter your age or ability. On just one trip you could be trekking amid the ruins of ancient civilizations one day and then kayaking down a river in the Amazon Jungle a few days later. Throw in an afternoon surf lesson on Peru's wild coastline, and you have a trip packed full of excitement.

For those who like their adventure with a serious dose of adrenaline, why not try zip lining over The Sacred Valley? Or, maybe you like to get your heart rate up alongside a little history and culture? Trekking to the various Inca sites around the city is the best way to satisfy all your travel cravings.

If hiking isn't your thing, then a memorable way to get out into the countryside around Cusco is on horseback. Equine adventures can take you up above the city to all the top sites.

The classic Sacred Valley adventure is, of course, the trek to Machu Picchu, and it tops the list for all the right reasons. A challenging but beautiful hike to one of most revered UNESCO World Heritage sites in the world.

Ollantaytambo is a great place to base yourself in The Sacred Valley, although Cusco isn't too far from the action either. If you want a really unique and adventurous stay in the area, there is actually a hotel made up of glass capsules situated 1, 312 feet up a near-vertical mountain!
