One of the questions our customers most frequently ask is about how to combine adventure and luxury travel in Peru. The answer is that you’ll find these two travel styles often complement one another more than you might think, particularly in Peru.
This country is a natural playground but also offers extensive upscale facilities that make it possible to pamper yourself at the end of an active day. From Amazon luxury cruises to “sky lodges” perched on top of mountains, Peru offers endless opportunities to mix elegance with exploration. Let’s take a look at a few sample itinerary suggestions to give you a better idea of how you can experience authentic, glamorous adventures on your private luxury Peru tour.
Known as the City of Kings, Lima is Peru’s cosmopolitan capital. Take a tour of the city’s colorful historic district (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), visit magnificent and ancient pre-Colombian archeological sites, browse boutiques and art galleries for high-quality handicrafts, or explore exotic food markets. We can arrange private cooking classes, ceviche-making classes, or tastings of local specialties. Treat yourself to a meal at one of the city’s world-renowned restaurants, such as Central, Gaston y Astrid, or Maido.
If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, Lima is an excellent base for surfing the action packed Pacific Ocean, cycling though bustling streets, and paragliding along the cliff hanging coastline of the Costa Verde. Embark on a rafting excursion to one of the nearby towns, such as Lunahuana or Huancaya. Huancaya also offers great opportunities for rainbow trout fishing.
