Expedition

  • Experience a very different culture

    Peru boasts a great wealth of cultures and traditions. The fusion of Peru’s indigenous Andean origins and strong foreign influences have forged a complex identity that is full of contradictions. Colourful markets display a fascinating variety of crafts and cuisines and local fiestas are celebrated with unbridled enthusiasm. Peruvian culture is as complex as its intricate and exquisite weavings.

  • Explore a new landscape

    Peru’s staggering variety of places to visit means the potential for trekking is boundless. Experience the stunning panoramas and diverse landscapes of the Sacred Valley, trek into the world famous Machu Picchu, or explore the breath-taking Colca Canyon. Take a boat tour on Lake Titicaca or discover the incredibly diverse flora and fauna of the Amazon jungle.

  • Be part of a global community

    Living and working within a rural community is the perfect way to gain an insight into Peruvian culture. Teams can get involved in a variety of rewarding projects, assisting remote villages with building or agricultural tasks. In all cases the emphasis is strongly on sustainability and conservation.

  • Learn something important

    Peru’s historical legacy is world famous. Cusco is the gateway to Machu Picchu and undisputed archaeological capital of the Americas, where you can see ornate cathedrals tower over Inca temples. Lima’s great museums reveal the sophistication and skill of lost civilisations. Colonial Arequipa is resplendent with baroque architecture. Immerse yourself, and you’ll leave Peru a little closer to the past.

What to expect

  • Terrain

    From exotic jungle to coastal desert via the breath-taking peaks of the Andes, Peru’s geographical variety provides countless options for exploration.

  • Culture

    Peru’s vibrant Andean culture is one of the most exciting in the Americas. It offers a mix of Hispanic and native traditions where modern cosmopolitan cities contrast with remote and traditional communities.

  • Weather

    Peru’s climate varies considerably between its coastal, highland, and rainforest regions. The best time to visit is during the dry season, between May and October, when sunny days and chilly nights are perfect for trekking.
