Naomi’s pick: Attend one of the most important festivals of the Inca calendar, Inti Raymi (Festival of the Sun), and witness the colourful processions, traditional dances and historical re-enactments.
But that’s not all … as well as the festival, this Peregrine adventure highlights the archaeology of Peru taking in the ancient Inca architecture scattered throughout the Sacred Valley, before discovering the mother of all Inca cities: magical Machu Picchu (which you will visit twice, and witness the winter solstice on your second visit).
There’s a boat tour on the world’s highest navigable lake, followed by two nights on a private Island overlooking Lake Titicaca. Marvel at the unique concentric terraces of the Moray archaeological site just outside of Cuzco; journey to the Colca Canyon, which is deeper than the Grand Canyon and dotted with ancient villages; and of course, Peru is a world-class culinary destination and you will try a variety of street food and authentic Peruvian desserts.
