Few destinations have as much to offer
an astonishingly varied country. Here you'll find panoramic
mountain ranges, vast deserts, beautiful beaches and tropical
jungle, not to mention fantastically rich history, archaeology,
wildlife and enduring indigenous cultures.
Images of the extraordinary remains of ancient
civilizations will inevitably jump to mind. The Inca stronghold
Machu Picchu is one of the most famous and photogenic
archaeological sites in the world and the mysterious Nazca Lines
boggle the mind, but there are hundreds of similarly fascinating
and even older sites to discover.
All are set in stunning landscapes, whether
parched desert costa (coast), soaring sierra (mountains) or
remote selva (rainforest) overflowing with wildlife. Such a
diverse landscape generates diverse pleasures; the visitor can
hike through snowy peaks one day, and relax on the beach the
next; paddle a dugout through lowland rainforest or hop on a
traditional reed boat on some of the world's highest lakes.
