Lost World of the Incas
A journey through Peru visiting outstanding monuments, from Lima to Cuzco’s cobblestone streets to the Sacred Valley and Macchu Picchu, through the Andes to Lake Titicaca
It would be wrong to think that Peru is represented solely by the fame of Machu Picchu, although it is the country’s – if not the continent’s – most visited site. While the old Inca settlement certainly dominates any travel itinerary in Peru, at Jules Verne we certainly don’t neglect the mix of other ancient civilisations and dramatic archaeology that await travellers on a tour across the rest of the country.
The weather in Peru varies dramatically depending on where you are in the country. The changes in altitude can be very extreme, meaning that it can be colder in the mountains, yet sunny along the coast. Most tourists find that June through to September is the best time to book their Peru holiday, as travellers can expect warmer temperatures during the day, while the nights are slightly cooler.
Highlights of our Peru tours include taking in the outstanding monuments of the colonial period in Lima, wandering Cuzco’s winding cobblestone streets and learning about its 1,000-year history and experiencing the majesty of the Andes. The wildlife of the Ballestas Islands is not to be missed, and the mysterious Nazca Lines in southern Peru will leave you captivated.
Further west lies Puno, where on the margins of Lake Titicaca live the unique Uros Indian communities on their man-made reed islands. One thing’s for sure, Peru is an unforgettable destination.
On our Flight of the Condor Peru tour, you’ll follow the path of the Condor and get to experience the incredible Andean mountain range. Travelling from Peru via Bolivia to Chile, you’ll not only get the chance to discover the incredible man-made structures in Peru, but you’ll also be able to get your camera out and take some snaps of you at the salt flats in Bolivia. Experiencing the exceptional ecosystems of Chile will finish your trip off perfectly.
If, however, you’d prefer to delve into the Amazing Amazonia, why not explore it with us on one of our Peru escorted tours? The Amazon offers incredible wildlife and natural beauty – and shouldn’t be missed. On this trip, you can observe monkeys, spot dolphins and get lost within the jungle.
Your next getaway can be enjoyed with a small group of fellow travellers, friends, loved ones, accompanied by an experienced tour guide, who will be happy to answer however many questions you have about this fascinating destination. Take a trip of a lifetime and book one of our amazing tours to Peru today.

Weather & Climate
The weather in Peru varies according to area – the changes in altitude are so extreme that the climate goes from freezing in the mountains to sun on the coast. Likewise, the coast covers such a large stretch of longitude that the temperature changes dramatically as you head further south.
When to go
During June to September, the mountainous areas are often sunny during the day but cold at night. This is high tourist season and the best time to visit most regions.
