Peru

Peru is a perfect paradise truly beyond compare. This is the place to go if you’re on the hunt for the brilliant combination of fine luxury and adrenaline fuelled adventure, ideal for both a family holiday and those who want to fly solo.
 
Pinch yourself again and again to be convinced that what you’re seeing is real. Spoiler alert – it is. Peru boasts jaw-dropping views wherever you look of stunning greenery and lush tropical vegetation that sparkles brightly under the beaming sun.
 
The only bumps in the road you’ll find in this breathtaking country are the abundance of gorgeous mountains. Feel like Tarzan as you venture through the treetops on glorious morning hikes and watch the sunrise peek through the valleys for an Instagram opportunity like no other. Like after like will come rolling in after you snapshot this little slice of heaven.
 
What’s a trip to Peru without a dip in the crystal-clear lakes? Cool off from the Peruvian heat as you swim through the likes of Lake Titicaca, Lake Sandoval and Lake Rimachi. It really doesn’t get any better than this.
 
Make sure you bring your appetite as this destination is home to delicious Latin American and authentic Peruvian cuisine. This is the perfect opportunity to get your chops around something new and we promise it beats fish and chips in front of the telly. Remember, wash all the tasty food down with bottled water or other carbonated beverages as the tap water in Peru is unsafe to drink.
 
Peru will supply you with every tool you need to have the holiday of a lifetime in the best way possible. Smiles and laughs will automatically burst from your body as soon as you touch down on the tarmac and transform into sobs when it’s time to return home. You’ll just have to go back again – it would be rude not to.
 
Winged Boots Wisdom

 
The high altitude in Peru can be a little overwhelming to those who aren’t used to it. We recommend walking everywhere at a reasonable pace without rushing to prevent altitude sickness as much as possible. Eating lots of bananas is essential to replace the potassium that is extracted from the body due to the high elevation.

Location

Peru in a Nutshell

Soak Up The Culture  
 
  • Enter the spiritual and political world of Costa Rica at The Jade Museum, located in the centre of San José. The museum is set across five levels and features rare artefacts crafted by artisans to preserve the archaeological heritage of Central America. The building is also something to be marvelled at with stunning stone architecture and a smooth-as-glass finish. 
     
  • Museo de Arte Costarricense is one for the art buffs. This museum displays paintings, sculptures and mixed media of local Costa Rican artists in a beautiful contemporary gallery. Admission is free for guests to spend endless hours admiring the works of art. 
     
Adventure Awaits 
 
  • This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. Conquer Machu Picchu in the Andes Mountains for an unforgettable experience and an Instagram opportunity that will have the likes rolling in. It’s quite a climb so don’t forget to bring water and set off as early as possible to avoid hiking in the afternoon sun. 
     
  • Trek to the summit of Rainbow Mountain, aptly named for its striped mineral deposits. Located a few hours away from Cusco, this is an all-day venture that is worth every bead of sweat and sore foot. The colourful mountain views are truly unbeatable.  
     
Tastes To Try 
 
  • Excellent French cuisine awaits you at Le Soleil in Cusco. Five stars don’t even begin to cover this delicious restaurant, catering for both vegetarians and vegans to ensure no stomach is left rumbling. This is ideal for a romantic date night or celebrating a special occasion.  
     
  • Don’t even think about visiting Peru without a taste of the local cuisine. Nanka specialises in Peruvian and Latin American dishes that are served to the highest standard in an elegant setting that can’t be compared. Nanka is ideal if you want to try something new without breaking the holiday budget and, of course, satisfying your stomach!
