In Peru, culture isn’t something you enter a dusty museum to find. It’s all around you. The strong traditions of indigenous cultures are easily witnessed in many religious or seasonal festivals.
From the heights of Machu Picchu to the cloud forest of Kuélap, Peru’s ruins garner due fame, but that doesn’t always mean crowds. Many are reached by gorgeous hikes, attractions in their own right.
From the ample sands of the coast to verdant Amazonian rainforest, lost canyon villages and the majestic peaks of the Cordillera Blanca, Peru features stark and stunning scenery.
