Peru for Families

Active families will find Peru’s diverse landscapes enchantingly exhilarating

Culture and outdoor adventure collide in the incredible scenery of Peru. Here is one of the few destinations where you can combine tropical jungle, mountain vistas, and thriving city scenes into the same itinerary. We do suggest this intrepid trip to families with older children and teens in order to fully appreciate all of the exciting treks.

Take a bicycle tour through the trendiest neighbourhoods in Lima before being transferred to an ecolodge in the Amazon; here you’ll definitely want to take a thrilling boat safari along the river in search of leaping monkeys, leathery caiman, and colourful birds.
 
You may then choose to hike or horseback ride through the emerald green expanse of the Sacred Valley of the Incas before taking a sunrise hike to the Sun Gate above Machu Picchu to gaze in awe at this incredible ancient site before the crowds arrive. An unforgettable Andean train journey then takes you to the world’s highest navigable lake, the vast Lake Titicaca. This watery expanse is home to Uru people who live on floating villages and if you’d like, we can arrange a private stay for you to learn about their culture.

Highlight:
Adventures in the Sacred Valley
The Inca’s Sacred Valley is the gateway to Cusco and Machu Picchu. This is Peru’s cultural heartland, dotted with ancient ruins and colourful Andean villages, but it is also a territory well suited to family adventures, from hikes to bikes to horseback rides.

Highlight:
Amazon Adventures
More than half of Peru falls within the boundaries of the Amazon Rainforest, one of the most biodiverse areas of our planet. New species are being discovered every year, so when you travel here you are on the very front line of science.
Highlight:
Beaches, Dunes and Nazca Lines
Did you know that Peru has 2,250 miles of Pacific coastline and dozens of glorious beaches along that shore? The sands stretch inland, too, to the dunes and mysterious ancient geoglyphs in the Sechura Desert at the foot of the Andes.

Accommodation:
Belmond Las Casitas
The stunning Colca Canyon surrounds you as you take in the delights of the Belmond Las Casitas Arequipa. The 20 picturesque bungalows blend into the striking landscape, and put you in the perfect location for contact with the local communities and exploring the unspoilt natural world.
Accommodation:
Titilaka Hotel
The tremendous Titilaka Hotel on Lake Titicaca… it sounds like the start of a tongue twister. You may well be tongue-tied when you stay here, but it will be on account of the astounding lakeside location of this Relais & Chateaux hotel.
