A good tour operator in Peru can arrange the ideal trip for travellers looking for fun and excitement in exploring the scenic beauty of Peru.
There are some amazing alternatives for travelling around Peru on a budget. The options include travelling by road, flying on the Lima International Airport or even taking a boat ride over the famous rivers in Peru such as the Volcan Quebradilla, Huayna-Llachas, and the Peru-Arco River. The boat ride over the mighty Amazonian rivers offer excellent opportunity to see some of the amazing tropical forests and amazing natural beauty of Peru. Such adventure offers great opportunities for water sports and jungle treks in the country.
Travelling around Peru by road takes about four days if you plan it well enough. You can start from the historic city of Ollantaytambo, a delightful little town which is located at the confluence of three rivers. The beautiful southern town of Uyuni is also an excellent starting point for trekking excursions. The fabulous southern city of Iquitos is a great place for shopping and has plenty of local markets where you can buy interesting trinkets, clothes, ceramics, pottery and other unique goods. The Incan citadel of Ollantaytambo can be visited even without taking a bus as the ruins are left as a spectacular museum.
If you want to explore the exciting adventure of hiking through the Incan ruins, you should not miss the opportunity to hop on one of the many comfortable and reasonably priced tour buses that run between the main cities and the Inca citadel of Uyuni. These buses provide excellent opportunities to view some of the most amazing monuments and landscapes of Peru. The journey will also take travellers to the remote areas of the Incan ruins where they can stay for the night and use the facilities provided. It is important to get the right guide to travel around Peru on your own or with your family. It would be preferable to get a guide who has knowledge of the paths, routes and destinations of the different regions and has ample experience of local people and their culture.
One good idea to make the most of your trip to Peru is to avoid travelling on major cities. The Lima or the main city of Peru is always crowded and can often be quite hard to get to. A good idea would be to travel to the smaller more remote areas where you will be able to enjoy a more intimate and exciting trip to the rainforests and ancient Inca capital. Travelling by bus or a train is the easiest way to go about this as they offer the most comfortable and convenient way to reach all of the major cities in Peru.
Another good idea for a day trip is to visit the beautiful rainforests, national parks and the Andes mountains. If you are lucky enough to have a flexible itinerary, this can mean that you can visit almost all of the major and minor attractions of Peru whilst keeping your focus and attention on the more remote and less touristy parts. One day trips to Peru are also a great option as they give the visitor the chance to see and feel the majesty of the Amazon without having to spend much time sightseeing or taking in any of the cities and towns along the way. The beauty and serenity of the Amazon can take a long time to soak up, so spending a day or two just relaxing in the tranquility of the Andes Mountains can be a wonderful and memorable way to end a trip to Peru.
It is very important that travellers avoid the rainy season when travelling around Peru. This is because Peru has a very long dry season and visitors who do not avoid the dry season and head to the wetter regions of the country can find themselves far less prepared when the trip ends. The Andes mountain range in particular is a very popular trekking location and travellers who are keen to explore the stunning scenery and natural wonders of the Inca Trail should head to Machu Picchu during the dry season. Once there the trails take you on a journey through the incredible landscapes of South America and allow you to experience the wonder and beauty of the Inca civilisation.
It is extremely important to make sure that you are accompanied by an English speaking guide when travelling around Peru. The majority of the hotels and other points of interest do not speak English and it can often be an advantage to have someone who can speak the language and provide information about the history and culture of the region. There are many language barriers and most travellers will find that it is well worth taking some time to learn a few phrases to make the experience easier. If you are travelling as part of a larger group, it may even be possible to get a tour guide to come along with you. These guides have a wealth of knowledge about the area and will guarantee that you are not stuck out at the end of your trip looking for directions!
