Climb the heights to the ancient ruins of Machu Pichu, where the Andean setting makes you feel as though you are in an old-world fairytale, or spend time on the beautiful Lake Titicaca, the most navigable lake in the world. Peru is full of hidden mysteries and rich cultures and cultural treasures and contrasts between the new and old world. As though a lost world just waiting to be explored, visit Peru with Brownell for the trip of a lifetime.

How do I get from one region to another?

In-country flights are quite common. You’ll need to take a short one-hour flight to get from Lima to Cusco and Machu Picchu. We recommend taking the earliest flights in the day possible. Because the weather can sometimes get worse as the day progresses, flight delays are much more common in the afternoon.

Is altitude sickness common?

It can be for some travelers. If you are traveling to Machu Picchu (elevation of 11,000+ feet), we recommend heading straight to the Sacred Valley (9,000 ft) and spending a few nights there to get acclimated. From there, ascend into Machu Picchu and Cusco.

What is there to do in Lima?

Many tourists can get turned off of Lima because, at first glance, it looks like your typical Latin American big city with traffic, congestion, and pollution. But the real gem in Lima is the Rafael Larco Herrera Museum. It is a must-see for first-time visitors! It provides a wonderful education for all of the Inka cultures. Their art and artifact collection is world-renowned. They also have a truly authentic café at the museum that serves lunch and dinner. The garden setting and genuine local menu make it a delightful entrance for your first day in Peru.
