Home to the widest range of Amazon forests, Lima is also the proud holder of the Incan city, Machu Picchu. Located high in the Andes Mountains, this is a bucketlist destination unlike any other. Visit historical destinations of what was once the world's largest empire in the 16th Century and introduce yourself to the best of Peru's natural wonders and local culture on all nine days of adventure.
