Peru Things to See and Do

Jagged mountains of the Andes, dense Amazonian jungle, endless desert sands and a rugged coast make Peru a dreamscape for the outdoor enthusiast. There are plenty of things to do in Peru, from world-class mountain climbing and multi-day treks into ancient ruins, to whitewater rafting, horseback riding and surfing; there's an adventure to suit every taste and season.


Hike into the deservedly-famous Machu Picchu, or break off the tourist-trodden path on the high mountain Ausangate Circuit. Challenge the surf of the north coast, then dry your bones sandboarding in the monstrous dunes at Huacachina. The list of things to do in Peru make it an endless adventure playground.
