If the thought of sitting on a sun lounger gives you itchy feet, then Peru may be your honeymoon heaven with culture and adventure galore in myriad ancient landscapes. Its dry season also coincides perfectly with a summer wedding.

Although Machu Picchu is considered the country's greatest feat, there is so much more to Peru than this ancient citadel. Find solace trekking remote Inca trails, watch Andean priests perform sacred rituals or sample phenomenal cuisine including guinea pig… a surprisingly delicious Peruvian delicacy.

Those looking for luxury should fear not, although Peru caters for the adventurous, it is no novice to style. Enjoy glamping with a three course lunch or a Pullman-style train serving a champagne dinner. The scenery is perfect for romance, think al fresco dining underneath a star studded sky followed by pisco sours besides a flickering campfire. The country's accommodation also ticks all the boxes for honeymooners, from charming lodges whose stone paths are prettily lined with flowers to restored former palaces built from original Inca walls, there is an outpost for all types of adventurers. Hiking boots welcome.

The Sacred Valley is dotted with Andean villages and colourful market towns. Its land is vast and surprising at every corner whether you encounter a pre-Inca ritual site on a hike or paddle board past local fishermen on the mountain lakes. Moreover, Peru is a destination that comes alive with exceptional guiding; listen to tales of gory battle scenes between the colonial Spanish and Inca tribes, uncover gloriously secluded mountain routes and gain unparalleled perspective of its historically rich city of Cuzco.

Head to the high-altitude Lake Titicaca, Peru's beach alternative and visit the floating reed islands of the Uros tribe. For a taste of the country's cosmopolitan hub, Lima's burgeoning legion of trend-setting restaurants and tantalising cooking courses will impress even the most discerning foodies.

If you still crave the beach, then combine your trip to Peru with Brazil's Emerald Coast for azure waters and sugar-white sand for the ultimate cool combo.

Where to go

Peru

Peru

The scenery is striking in its diversity, from plunging canyons to soaring mountains, lush rainforests to arid Altiplano.

City of Cusco

Cusco

Cusco is the gateway to Machu Picchu and the beautiful Urubamba Valley - few visitors will skip this fascinating city when touring Peru.

Machu Picchu panoramic

Machu Picchu

An UNESCO World Heritage Site and a New Wonder of the World, Machu Picchu is a must see for every avid traveller.

Paths through the Sacred Valley

The Sacred Valley

Mentioning a holiday to Peru inevitably evokes images of Machu Picchu and the Incan Empire, but the stunning landscapes of the lesser known Sacred Valley, are certainly not to be missed.

Uros Puppet Dollhouse

Lake Titicaca

Well worth a couple of days' spent enjoying the scenery and experiencing the rural tribal communities living at the lake.

Sunset in Mancora - Peru

Mancora

Mention Peru and most people will visualise dramatic Andean scenery, the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu or the mysterious Nazca lines. What they almost certainly won’t be thinking about is hip and happening beach resorts and a surfing and social scene to rival that in other Latin American hotspots such as Buzios or Jose Ignacio.
