Scouting out the Top Ten Experiences of Southern Peru

As one of the most diverse and culturally wealthy countries in the whole of South America, Peru is one of those destinations that offers so much to visitors. But where, what and how do you get the very best of it?

Well our resident luxury travel designer, Anna, went to find out just this in the popular region of Southern Peru. She went in search of both the usual and the unusual: testing out our privately guided hikes and treks, throwing herself into a wide selection of adrenalin inducing adventure activities (paragliding, mountain biking, horse riding, quad biking), scouting the impressive selections of historical Incan ruins, making sure all our private cultural tours were sincere and intimate encounters, to assessing handpicked accommodation and appraising the country's renowned experimental fine dining experiences.

The verdict: Peru is still one of our absolute favorite destinations, and with such personal service from our travel designers (like Anna), their first-hand insider information and expert local guides at your side, we always love bringing our guests to this inimitable and diverse country in the best possible ways that we can.

Below we have put together a slideshow, showcasing 10 of the best experiences from Anna's wild adventures through southern Peru, which we hope will inspire you to take a similar trip yourselves.
