Surely no country in the world can compete with Peru for the sheer richness and variety of its history of empire. Waves of indigenous cultures, each with its own distinctive traditions, have left a huge cultural legacy. Ruined temples and fortresses abound, artistic artefacts have been discovered all around the country, and the descendants of these peoples maintain a strong identity linking them with their past.
With constantly improving infrastructure in Peru, it is now possible to discover the different vestiges of this heritage in what were once remote locations difficult (and expensive) to access. This exciting good-value holiday takes you to the archaeological sites of northern Peru, including cliff-top Kuelap of the mysterious Chachapoyans, the Moche temples on the desert coast and, of course, Cusco and the remarkable Inca citadel at Machu Picchu.
