A week of family adventure vacations in Peru will truly be unforgettable. You can book these kinds of tours with many travel agencies. Including airfare, 8 day accommodation, meals, and guided tours, these adventure vacations in Peru can cost around US $3000 per person.
An advantage of booking your adventure vacations in Peru with a travel agency is that when you arrive at the airport, a transfer service will pick you up and bring you to your hotel so it is very convenient since most flights coming from the United States arrive in the evening or at dawn.
On your real first day in Peru, you can start your adventure by going to Cuzco, which is an hour flight from Lima. Cuzco sits high above sea level at 11,000 feet so you can expect the view from here to consist of snow capped mountains, lofty plateaus and deep valleys going down the Sacred Valley of the Incas, which is at 8,000 feet. Some side trips to interest you could be a visit to a llama and alpaca farm where you and your kids can also learn about how wool is made into textile. You can get a chance to shop at the colorful market of Pisac or just mingle with the locals as they buy goods. A great idea for lunch is to head at a restaurant that overlooks the wild river of Urubamba. After lunch, you can just relax at your hotel or you can go mountain biking instead.
Adventure vacations in Peru will take you to the Andes highlands where you will find the ancient citadel of the Inca Empire – the city of Machu Picchu. You and your family will also get to explore the Amazon rainforest and its diverse tropical wildlife. Adventure vacations in Peru will give you the chance to immerse yourselves in the vibrant market towns. You will also witness traditional farming methods and creative crafts making by the friendly Peruvian people.
Of course, adventure vacations in Peru will not be complete without a taste of the traditional Andean cuisine. Experience the rich culture and history of Peru as your local guide tale your family to magnificent archaeological sites. The good thing about family adventure vacations in Peru is that there are different activities to interest both adults and children. If you have young children, trekking the Inca Trail may not be a suitable activity but if your children are old enough to experience the four day Inca Trail hike then take the chance to do so.Tags: adventure holidays in Peru, Adventure vacations in Peru, Peru family holidays
