If you’re looking for a trip that will introduce the children to cultural curiosities and active adventures alike, then look no further than a Peru family holiday. We’d particularly recommend this as an option when the children are teenagers, so they can partake of all the activities, and fully appreciate Peru’s extraordinary cultural heritage.

Our team of Latin America experts are here to tailor-make the ultimate Peru family holiday for you, weaving together any number of fun experiences based on your children's ages and interests, and always including our exclusive range of additional services. These range from fast-track check-in and security at the airport, to airport lounge access even if you're flying in economy. In destination, you can contact our clued-up local Concierge at any time for family-friendly restaurant recommendations and to make any last-minute tweaks to the itinerary. Finally, given the lengthy flight-time to Peru, we provide all 3-10-year olds with a fun pack designed by the supercool children's party people Sharky & George full of games and destination-specific quizzes to keep boredom at bay.

So what to do on your Peru family holiday? In the depths of the Andean Mountains, the Sacred Valley is a great destination for teens in need of some real adventure. You and they can white water raft, hike and mountain bike to your heart's content, and there are added bragging rights back at school for having paddle boarded on a lake 11500ft above sea level. Then there's obvious highlight of walking to Macchu Pichu, and the joy (if that's the word) of lunch in a cliff-clinging restaurant reached by via ferrata climbing ropes. Also on the active front, there's surfing in Mancora, sandboarding in Huacachina, wildlife watching in the Peruvian Amazon and kayaking on Lake Titicaca. That should tire them out.

But a Peru family holiday can also be an excellent cultural introduction. Despite the Spanish conquistadors' best efforts, Peru's ancient Inca traditions have been preserved, so you and the children can see weavers practice their art, explore the many ancient ruins in the cultural capital Cusco, and hear native languages that are alive and well.
