Ancient Ruins

Step back in time and experience the ancient ruins in epic Peru. Let us take you on an adventure through to the ‘Lost City of the Incas’, to the most famous ancient ruins in Peru also known as Ma-chu Picchu.

A trip to Peru wouldn’t be complete without an Inca trail. There are three overlapping trails to choose from (Mollepata, Classic and One Day) and depending on your inner adventurer, you will get to experience an epic journey trekking to the jaw dropping sights of Machu Picchu.

Widely regarded as one of the most significant archaeological sites in the world, Machu Picchu stands 2,430 m above sea-level in the Andes Mountains. The Inca citadel was built in the 15th century and gives visitors an insight into the lost city of the Incas. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 and was bought to attention by Hiram Bingham in 1911.

Explore what Machu Picchu has to offer, from it’s breathtaking sights, the foundations of an ancient civilisation and the Inca Temples in the Sacred District, consisting of The Temple of the Sun, The Room of the Three Windows and Intihuatana Stone.

Beyond Machu Picchu, another fascinating ancient ruins to visit is The Sacred Valley of the Incas. Visit the mysterious Moray agricultural terraces and take trips to the archaeological sites of Ollantaytambo, Chinchero and Pisac.

For something a bit different to your trekking trails, why not take a flight over the Nazca desert and see the mysterious geometric patterns and lines etched in the ground over 2,000 years ago. See if you can spot figures of the monkey, the hummingbird and the condor amongst the hundreds of preserved patterns in the desert.

Head to Arequipa, for a sight of beautiful buildings from the colonial era. Known as the ‘white city’, Arequipa has buildings built from white volcanic stone, set against a backdrop of Misti Volcano in the distance and offers picturesque sights such as Santa Catalina Monastery. Additionally, Arequipa is perfect for food lovers and an array of restaurants serving classic dishes such as stuffed spicy red peppers.

Arequipa is also the gateway to Colca Canyon, home to one of the world’s deepest canyons, an astounding depth of 4,160 metres! Bring your binoculars and catch Andean Condors in the land-scape and soak in the stunning scenery.
