Northern Peru - The Land of the Cloud Warriors

14 days

From £6,595

Activity Level:


The evocative southern ruins of Machu Picchu are, of course, what draws most travellers to Peru. However, this means that the north is often overlooked. Filled with vast archaeological sites, diverse landscapes and UNESCO-listed ruins, it is well worth a visit. To experience this part of South America is to see a side of Peru that most explorers will miss.

Tour highlights:

  • Visit the UNESCO-listed site of Chavín de Huántar
  • Explore Chan Chan, the biggest city ever built from adobe bricks
  • Discover lesser-visited sites, such as the Tucume pyramids and the Huanchaco Pampa, the largely intact north-east capital of the Inca Empire
  • Experience the Citadel of the Cloud Warriors – Kuelap, known as the “Machu Picchu of the North”
