[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Last month we introduced our new series ‘Monthly Country’. We will highlight every month a different country. Argentina started in August, and this month it is Peru’s turn. The monthly country series will highlight among others the must-do’s, the top cities, and some useful tips and tricks for your Peruvian itinerary! Every month we are having a guest blogger as well. To start we have the list of things you ABSOLUTELY have to do when visiting this country.
Sandboarding in Huacachina
An oasis between huge sand dunes. Huacachina is one of the places where you can go sand-boarding. A buggy will take you on top of the dunes by a very enthusiastic driver. On the movies sand-boarding looks like piece of cake, but do not underestimate this. Which I did. After a few attempts I decided just to slide of the dunes. Which is fun as well! Ask before leaving if you can see which board you will get, so you will know for sure they will provide you with decent material. Which I didn’t…
Hiking in the Colca Cañón
Without doubt this was my most amazing, most beautiful, but also the toughest hike I have done in Peru. This canyon is the most deepest in the world, deeper as the Grand Canyon, but less know. Maybe this post will change this. We were on a 3-day hike where you will go down half-way on the first day, and the second day you will rock the bottom, the so-called oases. And the last day you will walk all the way up. And that was tough I can tell you, very, very tough..
Jump shot at Machu Picchu
Leaving Peru without a Machu Picchu jump shot is a crime. We chose for a 4-day jungle trail where you will start your first day with some mountain biking and you will have the option to raft as well; the second day you will hike; and the third day you will have the option to zip-line and to hike afterwards; and the last day you will visit the Machu Picchu. A fun and diversified trail, which is less tough as the Inca trail. At least I heard that. You can also choose not to do a trail at all and just visit Machu Picchu by train. This is undoubtedly the most relaxing option…[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”8165″ img_size=”large”][vc_single_image image=”8168″ img_size=”large”][vc_single_image image=”8171″ img_size=”large”][vc_single_image image=”8173″ img_size=”large”][vc_single_image image=”8175″ img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]Off course there are a lot more cool, crazy and wonderful things to do in Peru.
