Peru is an astonishingly varied country, where landscapes range from the towering icy Andean peaks to the steamy depths of the tropical Amazon and one of the most ancient and sophisticated cultures on the continent has given rise to some of the finest examples of art and craftsmanship we know. With African, Arab, European and Asian influences, Peru’s cuisine is as much an ethnic melting pot as its population. Great cultural diversity has bought a fusion of ingredients and techniques and the food here, from the bountiful food markets to the novoandina (Peruvian nouvelle cuisine), is exquisite.

‘Incan Pathways’, escorted by Jemma Wilson, explores the many aspects of Peru’s rich Andean and colonial past, as well as its thriving gastronomic scene, impressive architecture and prominence on today’s art and design world stage.

You’ll visit the iconic Machu Picchu and the Incan sites of the Sacred Valley & Cusco, take in the stunning scenery and have the opportunity to climb Huayana Picchu if you wish. Art lovers will enjoy being hosted at Lima Art Museum by the head curator, taking a guided art walk of Cusco with a local expert and exploring the bright blue historic residence of Las Pallas Art Gallery. Meanwhile for foodies the journey includes lunch with the chef at a classic "Cevicheria", dining on the Criollo cuisine inherited from the Spanish and African slaves and a visit San Pedro Market followed by a private Peruvian cooking class and dinner. To round the journey off you’ll have time to spend wandering the bohemian streets of Lima’s trendy Barranco district and enjoy a private dinner hosted in Cusco’s oldest colonial mansion.

Combining so many facets of Peru’s rich diversity, this escorted journey is a true tapestry of cultures both ancient and contemporary.
