At the top of a misty Andean peak stands a 15-century city hemmed in forest-clad mountains. Peru may be known for the iconic Machu Picchu, but that’s only scratching the surface. The country is a rich bastion of ancient Incan culture, rugged hiking terrain, stellar scenery, Michelin-starred restaurants and humbling connection to the spiritual world. Peru is a shining South American beacon of joy, adventure and culture.
