Peru At A Glance

There is a wealth of adventures to be had in this ancient country, too many to take in on a single trip. Natural highlights include Lake Titicaca, the Andes mountain range, Colca Canyon and the Amazon jungle. Manmade wonders also abound, such as the iconic Machu Picchu, the Nazca Lines, and colonial gems such as Cusco and Arequipa. Building a home, installing an ecological stove for a family, providing medical care or simply getting involved in village life are ways you and your family can leave a legacy and make your trip all the more memorable and significant.
