peru for families
Peru is a fabulous destination for children and a family adventure. From Andean cities to jungles, and fascinating ruins to dune surfing, this is a never-ending paradise for parents and children alike.
Below are some highlights for a family trip to Peru:
Machu Picchu: there are not many places in the world that ignite the imagination quite like Machu Picchu. Young children will be speechless on the train journey to Aguas Calientes, and older children will enjoy the spectacular Inca Trail. Whichever route you take to the magnificent city, the whole family will be in awe at the first spectacular sight here.
Sacred Valley: to give children a break from the, albeit spectacular, ruins dotted about the country, take a visit to the Sacred Valley where there are many adrenaline pumping activities for you to embark on. From zip-lining and white water rafting to cycling, your children will love taking a break from the cultural tour to get into the great outdoors.
South Coast: Nazca and Huacachina are two great places south of Lima to fascinate children for different reasons. They will enjoy coming up with reasons for the unexplained Nazca lines as much as they enjoy the adrenaline rush of boarding down the sand dunes in Huacachina.
Learn about chocolate in Cusco: the birth place of chocolate, children of all ages will love an interesting and interactive chocolate lesson in the beautiful Cusco. They will find out about the discovery of cocoa, it’s first incarnation of hot chocolate under the Spanish conquistadors and how it became the lovely sweet bar that it is now. Finish the tour by making your own chocolate to take away with you.
Trekking: whether it’s the iconic Inca Trail or some other fabulous trek, the Andes offer incredible hiking experience for any family.
Piranha fishing: the most exciting aspect of a holiday is learning and experiencing new things. There are many exceptional experiences to be had in the Amazon, one of which is Piranha fishing. Watch your child’s excitement as they try this new experience.
Lake Titicaca: this will be a fascinating trip with children to the reed islands of the Uros people. Your children will love meeting the locals, touring the markets, and there is also the potential to take a homestay for a really local experience.
