Following on from our introductory blog about luxury intergenerational family trips that make a difference, where we featured New Zealand, today we are looking at how intergenerational families can leave a legacy and bond even closer together in Peru.
Peru is fantastic for adventurous intergenerational families because there is an abundance of hiking, walking and cycling, and UNESCO World Heritage listed sites that you will love and treasure!
You can get immersed in the local culture, your youngest ones can play with the local children, and the older ones can get involved in helping install ecological stoves in homes in a remote rural village. These stoves are awesome because:
There are superb luxury lodges to stay at whilst volunteering, such as Sol y Luna and Inkaterra Urubamba.
Your visit to the Inca city of Machu Picchu will probably be one of the highlights of the your trip – it has an astonishing location and yes, it is best-known archaeological site on the continent. You reach the ancient citadel by train, including the opportunity to take the luxurious Belmond Hiram Bingham train to Aguas Calientes, or on foot along the Inca trails (we can even offer you a luxury lodge based trek!)…you’ll love your trip to this beloved site.
Back in Cusco, enjoy the excellent works of artisans, and something that you cannot miss here is the Peruvian cuisine, which has been awarded ‘Best Culinary Destination’ by World Travel Awards for years. You can attend cooking classes in both Cusco and Lima and learn some of the local recipes and bring home the sublime flavors of Peru.
