Adventure, history and hospitality
Peru is the land of the ancient Inca, an amazing civilization that was able to tame the wild geography and live in harmony with the rivers, sun, rain, sea, mountains and the dry cold of the Andes, while adapting to their environment and surviving thanks to the valuable fruits of Pachamama (Mother Earth).
Part of this ancient civilization still remains in every village and can be discovered in local traditions. Arriving in Peru is like stepping back in time to discover the fascinating lives of the Incas, Chancas, Chachapoyas, Mochicas and Wari, as well as their great architecture, art and festivals - the source of the strength of their societies and the energy of their people.
