Peru Family Tour activities to inspire

Adventure in Peru

Peru is an ideal adventure playground for a memorable tailormade family tour. Cusco and the Sacred Valley are home to an amazing variety of adventure pursuits: horseback riding, whitewater rafting, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, biking, multi-day camping treks and ziplining, to name but a few! The capital Lima sits on the coast, with waves ideal for surfing classes. South of Lima lays Paracas, where boat rides to the Ballesta islands take you up-close to sea lions and the nearby desert terrain is perfect for sandboarding at sunset. In the north, you can spot humpback whales then kick-back by the pool at a luxury beach hotel on the palm-fringed shores of Mancora, or play Indiana Jones visiting remote waterfalls and little-visited ruins in Chachapoyas.

Amazon Wildlife

Venture to the Amazon, the world’s largest tropical rainforest, to satisfy curious minds and inspire your children about the natural world. Base yourself in a jungle lodge – Refugio Amazonas has specially designed family programs for younger kids – and traverse treetop canopies for a unique perspective on the rich flora and fauna and visit colorful parrot claylicks. Alternatively, take a luxury Amazon cruise where you can swim and kayak in the Amazon.

Cultural and Educational interaction

Peru is the perfect setting to broaden your children’s minds and connect with people from different cultures with interactive and educational experiences. Learn about traditional cultural customs with responsible, authentic village visits that take you away from the main tourist trails, optionally with a homestay experience for full immersion, and catch colorful festivals that are characteristic of Peru. You can also visit local markets with a chef for a hands-on cooking class, or even learn to make your own chocolate.

Quality Family Time

We arrange creative, fun activities to spend quality time together in Peru and Bolivia, whether Glamping in the Sacred Valley, or on a specially arrange treasure hunt in Cusco. When it comes to unwinding as a family, there is no shortage of stunning backdrops in Peru. From renting a private villa on serene Lake Titicaca to hopping in the hot springs of Colca Lodge, our expert travel team will share the top family options tailored to your children’s ages and family interests.

Bolivia Family Tour activities to inspire

Bolivia is an enigmatic destination. With more basic infrastructure than Peru, it is best suited to more intrepid families looking to get off-the-beaten path. Making the compromise on some luxury comforts is more than rewarded with phenomenal views at the country’s highlights, the Salar de Uyuni, where you can play with perspective on this surreal landscape and capture a family photo that will entertain for years to come! Elsewhere in Bolivia you can take a boat cruise to Lake Titicaca, believed to be the birthplace of the Incas, or follow in the footsteps of Tyrannosaurus Rex at Sucre’s Dinosaur Park.
