Trip ideas


We are starting to look into booking a trip to Peru, and I am hoping someone can give us some ideas of a rough itinerary! We haven't decided on a duration yet, so open to suggestions! Flexible to when we go too.

We will be travelling from the UK

We want to do the inca trail

Would love to go somewhere relaxing afterwards, preferably a beach resort?

Thanks in advance :-)

Try to have a date to go to Peru if you plan coming soon because the Inca trail gets sold out fast months ahead.

Also, the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu are best in June/July/August, which is dry season but also winter. So what's ideal for Machu Picchu is not the ideal time for a beach vacation in Peru.

You need to,plan some dates in advance as bookings are required for the Inca trail months in advance.

We will definitely book it well in advance - I'm just not sure where to start! I will have a look at that website, thanks.

Has anyone flown to a different country for the beach relaxation afterwards?

Thanks again
