Machu Picchu and the Amazon in the list of unmissable destinations
Built throughout the fifteenth century, the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu was hidden for many years. In the early twentieth century, the American explorer and archaeologist Hiram Bingham "re-discovered" the site and, since then, has been carefully restored and preserved for future generations. Tourists who walk along the Inca Trail, or those who arrive by train to the site, are impressed by the incredible views, history and overwhelming serenity of the citadel.
The Amazon occupies almost two thirds of the land area of Peru, and with the thousands of species of flora and fauna that inhabit the region, each visit feels unique. The Amazon is home to some of the most amazing and vibrant animals, from colorful birds, monkeys, big cats and even pink dolphins. Travelers can experience our Amazon in many ways, from hiking to luxury cruises, and inside the jungle, the city of Iquitos awaits to receive travelers with open arms.
