Located in South America alongside the South Pacific Ocean, Peru has a heritage that many countries envy. Much of the attraction lies in the natural resources, the archaeological finds and the Inca’s empire and activity holidays often involve treks to Machu Picchu or hikes along the Sierra. Less known than the Inca Trail but still as popular, are the Cordillera and the Colca Canyon trails. Two other treks to explore during activity holidays include Ausangate and Salcantay.
Peru is a great place for family holidays, as the diversity and activities are second to none. Start in the capital, Lima and enjoy some sightseeing, taking in the interesting architecture and the numerous museums, before a little retail therapy in the shops. Lima also offers plenty of family friendly restaurants and hotels.
