Some tips and recommedations when traveling to Peru:

Most travelers visit Southern Peru, however Northern Peru is also abound with impressive archaeological sites and stunning landscapes. I especially recommend visiting Gocta Waterfall and Kuelap archaeological complex. Fewer tourists to this area make the experience even more fulfilling!

The 4-day Inca Trail sells out quickly, but that doesn’t mean it is superior to alternative trekking options. Consider lesser traversed treks like Choquequirao or Lares for a more unique experience and to achieve greater solitude.

However, don’t limit trekking to the Cusco Region - a multi-day hike is an excellent way to experience the Colca Canyon.

Peru is a megadiverse country with astounding flora and fauna. Consider staying at an Amazon lodge that helps native communities combat deforestation and preserve local biodiversity. The jungle is an unforgettable adventure!
