With the average single medical expense claim made by Brits abroad being around £1,300, it’s important that you’re not left with a life-changing medical emergency expenses bill that could be easily avoided by having comprehensive Travel Insurance in place before you travel to Peru – let us take care of it for you.

Things to do in Peru

Adorned in ancient ruins, sacred valleys and epic mythology, Peru is the country of the legendary Incas, and many monuments and remains of the Inca civilization can still be widely seen and felt throughout the country today. From the officially recognised “Wonder of the World” Machu Picchu to the famed and mysterious Nazca lines, Peru is an archaeological wonderland, heaving with magical green hiking trails, rocky summits, snowy mountain peaks and vast valleys presenting an abundance of exploration and adventure.

A full tour of Peru will take you through widely different and dramatic landscapes including vast, snowy mountain ranges to long sandy beaches and into the exotic jungles of the Amazon rainforest. Peru’s tourism industry thrives on hiking tours through the Inca trails and guided tours around Machu Picchu and other ancient sights. You won’t find any shortage of guided tours should you wish to be shown the best sights in Peru. Over 50s are very much accommodated for by the tourism board as well in Peru and special tours are readily available for the mature traveller. A variety of hotels, spas and resorts will offer any number of activities off the beaten track. Peru is certainly a wild country full of life-changing adventures waiting to be explored.

Speaking the Language in Peru

The most frequently used and the official language in Peru is Spanish. However the sheer amount of tourism to Peru has enabled many English speaking guides and establishments to thrive and to be in high and constant demand. If you’re travelling on a packaged holiday then you’ll find that your guides will always be able to converse with you in English. However if you’re visiting this beautiful country unguided then expect to hear Spanish and many other dialects including up to 15 indigenous language families that are still readily in use in Peru today.
