Thomson Experiences in Peru

Active
Outdoor adventures, like most travelers’ experiences in the Peruvian highlands, usually start or end at Machu Picchu. Hiking at high altitudes and the stunning scenery enroute will leave you breathless. The scenery upon your arrival there will leave you speechless.
ARTS & CULTURE
Explore the magical citadel of Machu Picchu, the grandest of all Incan archeological sites. Discover the ancient art of Andean weaving; a long-time Thomson friend, artisan, and local union leader, will afford direct access to handcrafts and other resources that are unavailable to most visitors.
PHOTOGRAPHY
Photographic subjects abound in the Andes: street markets ablaze with colorful produce and brilliant textiles; llamas; volcanoes; Machu Picchu at dawn when the first rays of the sun spray over the surrounding peaks and splash across the emerald landscape.
MULTI-GENERATIONAL

Traveling the world with your family is like sharing a box filled with presents. The box is the world itself and the presents are the bonds that form through the experiences we share, and the perspective, patience, understanding, and tolerance we gain from expanding our horizons and seeing how other people live. There is no greater gift.
