Peru: The Rural Life – Living La Vida Local


Welcome to the Peru – the real Peru.

We’ve custom-designed an itinerary that allows you to get an insider’s view of rural life in Peru. With your own private guide and driver, you’ll have access to small villages from places as diverse as the Andean highlands to the floating islands of Lake Titicaca to the deep canyons of Colca. You’ll travel by foot, by horseback, even by catamaran to access parts of Peru you would never be able to do on your own. You’ll stay in small boutique hotels and at a homestay.

In each region, you’ll be introduced to how people live their lives quietly, away from the tourist masses. Every day will be like meeting new friends. Intimate conversations, one-on-one activities, gentle smiles and warm embraces.
