A Peru honeymoon is all about adventure. If lying on a beach, however idyllic it may be, isn’t for you, then Peru offers a heady mix of luxurious seclusion and action-packed adventures, from cruising on the mighty Amazon to exploring the rainforest and seeing exotic wildlife in its natural habitat. Visit historic cities and stunning natural landmarks, and have the best of both worlds and treat yourself to a bit of luxury before or after your adventures in some of Peru’s most stylish hotels. The options for both relaxing and adventure are limitless, and will ensure you will have incredible experiences everywhere you go- and an unforgettable honeymoon. Here are our top tips for a honeymoon in Peru:
Stunning views and fascinating history aside, our selection of luxury Peru hotels offers beautiful and unique accommodation, with special touches such as oxygen systems to help you acclimatise to the altitude, plus – after all that adventure – you’ll really appreciate the spas and the excellent cuisine. During your Peru honeymoon, we recommend relaxing in style at either the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo or at Titilaka.
Hike into the Amazon jungle on a personalised guided tour. Meet its colourful inhabitants, such as macaws and caiman crocodiles, and venture up to treetop walkways for incredible views over the rainforest canopy.
Visit the historic temples and terraces of Machu Picchu, in its stunning setting on a mountaintop, surrounded by tropical forests and lush green mountain peaks. There are also many other fascinating Inca ruins to explore.
Heights and Depths
Watch the majestic condors in flight over the breathtaking Colca Canyon, which is bigger and deeper than the Grand Canyon, while the Colca Valley is home to towns dating from pre-Inca times.
Explore Peru’s fascinating city life, from the white stone city of Arequipa, overlooked by the dramatic El Misti volcano, to the colonial architecture of Cusco, which is the former capital of the Inca empire and, like many Peruvian landmarks, is a UNESCO world heritage site. Try the delicious local food and visit the colourful markets for unique souvenirs.
Take a private helicopter flight over the Nazca Lines, for the best views of these intriguing and beautiful symbols etched into the Nazca desert- they stretch for 80 kilometres and include fascinating depictions of hummingbirds and lizards.
Take time out on a raft on the vast and beautiful Lake Titicaca, where you can visit man-made reed islands and take in the views in peace and solitude: or cruise along the Amazon river to see rich and diverse wildlife and experience the stunning Amazon sunsets.
