Peru £5.00 / $8.06 / €5.60
A country of great geographical diversity, Peru is culturally, historically and in natural heritage one of the richest in the world. Legends of buried gold and lost cities abound. Away from the modern capital, Lima, life goes on much as it has done for centuries, the pre-Hispanic beliefs and rituals dictating the patterns of daily life.
From the Amazon jungle to the heights of Machu Picchu, This way “Peru” explores the history, culture and sights of this ancient land.
Peru & Bolivia £13.00 / $20.96 / €14.56
Now in its eighth edition, this Bradt guide is co-authored by Kathy Jarvis of Andean Trails, and Hilary Bradt. Dozens of hikes are detailed, from short one day walks to longer seven or eight day hikes.
Each hike is described in detail, with a summary giving distance, altitude, approximate timing and a grade according to how difficult the author considers the hike to be. All the main trekking areas of Peru and Bolivia are covered.
Trekking in Peru £13.00 / $20.96 / €14.56
Published in February 2014. This is the most comprehensive, user-friendly trekking guide to Peru available. Peru’s mountains offer the most varied and dramatic treks in South America with the added attraction of Pre-Columbian ruins along the way.
Celebrating 40 years of Bradt, this unique guidebook is based on the Peru section of the very first Bradt guide. The original treks have been re-walked and new off-the-beaten-track routes added. Ideal for both backpackers and those in an organised group, it describes over 65 mountain treks and day walks with background information and travelers’ tales.
Special boxes throughout the text cover topics from guinea pigs to trekking with children.

» Salkantay Lodge Trek To Machu Picchu
Highlights - everything really but probably Isabela.
The island was so beautiful, lots of areas to explore on your own - the walk to Muro de las Lagrimas, lagoons, beach, watching the pelicans diving for fish around sunset. Los Tuneles was probably our favourite snorkelling trip. Kicker Rock would be a close second, we have some fantastic footage of hammerheads.
All the breakfasts were fresh and enjoyable as were the lunches provided on the trips - especially the ceviche on Los Tuneles tour. Andrea, our main contact was great always on time, very friendly, lots of useful information. Overall organisation was excellent - no problems.
Thanks again Tom - it was worth the wait!!

THE NORTH OF PERU The north of Peru is brimming with treasures and it is much less travelled than the southern hot spots of Cusco and Machu Picchu. Northern Peru travel never fails to surprise and impress, it is a fascinating part of this wonderful country well worth exploring. There is masses to see and do here so I would recommend a good amount of time. If you can I would dedicate a week as a minimum and ideally two weeks to a tour to the north of Peru.
