    Romance and Honeymoons

Reach beyond the surface in this nine-day journey, delving into Peru’s rich history and customs. Whether you are discovering the ancient temples of Pachamac, or the unexplained patterns carved into the land by the Incans at Moray, Peru is a country full of mystery waiting to be uncovered. In Lima and Cusco you’ll witness the resplendent cathedrals and basilicas built with the arrival of the Spanish, as two great empires collided. You’ll also encounter the vitality of contemporary Peru, its bustling markets, vibrant neighbourhoods, and innovative artists that draw from the country’s diverse traditions.

  • Visit the vibrant textile market at Chinchero, perhaps buying some luxurious alpaca wool to take home
  • Encounter the vast circles at Moray, their purpose lost with the Incans that built them
  • Explore the Incan fortress of Sacsayhuaman, its towering rock walls and imposing archways
  • Be enchanted by the glistening orange and turquoise Maras Salt Mines - innumerable salt wells perched on the mountainside
  • Unwind in the idyllic Sacred Valley with a traditional massage, a trip to Poc-Poc waterfall, or horseback riding
  • Journey to Pachamac, the centre of a mystical coastal religion that for over a thousand years attracted pilgrims searching for answers to life’s questions
  • Sample Criolla cuisine at Los Ficus, a horse-rearing hacienda steeped in culture and tradition
  • Meet the wool-weavers at Awana Kancha, hearing their customs and techniques, and seeing their alpacas
  • Visit Koricancha, the Incan ‘Sun Temple’ now converted into a Spanish cathedral – an impressive example of how the cultures fused together
  • Explore Ollantaytambo, one of the last vestiges of urban life in the Incan empire, with ruined streets, courtyards and terraces
