Luxury Travel Peru: Where to go 

Peru is a land of three biological extremes: the Andes, the desert, and the Amazon. Luxury travel in Peru can encompass all of these; like those such as our itinerary The Pillars of Peru.


The breathtaking peaks of the Andes Mountains are the highest tropical mountain range in the world and stretch across the entire length of the country, making both the ancient city of Cusco and the Sacred Valley must-visit destinations during luxury travel to Peru.

Many treks can be enjoyed in this part of the country too, with lodge-to-lodge stays or camping trips both available as part of our luxury trekking itineraries. Routes such as the famous Inca trail trek to Machu Picchu, or the difficult Salkantay trek both offer an unforgettable experience. For those with a little more time during luxury travel to Peru, there’s the option to include stays in mountain lodges in the Cordillera Blanca.

Peru’s sprawling, arid, desert coastline was once home to one of the oldest civilizations on earth. Here lies the capital Lima, mysterious Nazca Lines, the coastal town of Paracas, the northern beaches of Mancora, and impressive pre-Inca sites along the Moche Route.

Vast swathes of rainforest then cover almost two-thirds of the country. Explore the heart of the Amazon either with a luxury Amazon cruise or retreat to a jungle lodge in Tambopata.

Elsewhere in the country, Lake Titicaca invites visitors to discover local lifestyles, while travelers looking to explore lesser-known regions as part of their luxury travel to Peru can channel their inner Indiana Jones in the Chachapoyas region.

Luxury Travel Peru: When to go

Peru is a year-round destination. Thanks to its geographical diversity, the proximity of the Equator, and the cold waters of the Humboldt current, Peru has a series of micro-climates ranging from the extreme dryness of the coast to the intense humidity of the jungle. As such, there is always a range of weather across the country in any given time period. We take this all into account for our personal recommendations on what to see and do in Peru as part of your bespoke luxury travel to Peru.

The dry season in the Andes and interior of the country runs from May to October, ideal for luxury Machu Picchu trips. Travel from November to March, the rainy season, typically brings afternoon showers in the Cusco and Machu Picchu region, though the landscape is then at its lushest. At the same time, during the rainy season, the weather is a its best on the coast at the peak of the summer months – ideal for visiting the Nazca lines and beaches of Mancora.
