At a glance

With culture, history and incredible landscapes, Peru is a wonderful place for an unforgettable honeymoon. You can choose to include as much or as little as you like, to ensure you get the perfect balance of expertly-guided tours and quality time together.

Your adventure starts in Lima, a vibrant city famous for its world-class restaurants, bars and thriving arts scene. After two nights in the capital, and a fabulous culinary tour, you’ll take a short flight to Cusco, from where you’ll head to the Sacred Valley. Once the base of Inca civilisation, this is one of Peru’s most historically rich areas and is also one of its most beautiful. You’ll spend three days relaxing here, taking in the epic scenery and exploring by bike.

No trip to Peru is complete without seeing the iconic Incan citadel of Machu Picchu. Explore this mystical site in the company of an expert local guide who will make the ruins come alive. After a night in a luxury lodge, you’ll enjoy some time to explore on your own, discovering its many nooks and crannies, before catching the train back.

It’s then onto the charming city of Cusco, filled with colonial architecture. Learn how to make Peru’s national drink, the pisco sour, and enjoy wandering through the cobbled streets that make this such an intoxicating city.

The final days will be spent relaxing on the beaches of Peru’s northern coast. How you choose to spend your time is completely up to you – surf, fish, dive and snorkel, or simply sit back and do absolutely nothing.
