FOR HIKING AND WATER ENTHUSIASTS
The Andes are Peru's most striking feature. These spectacular mountains are a veritable paradise for keen hikers and climbers – from a gentle trek through rolling green countryside, past mountain lakes and waterfalls, to a challenging alpine climb in the glacial regions. With countless peaks over 6,000 metres high, the Cordillera Blanca mountain range is a further attraction. If you're planning an excursion into the mountains, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to acclimatise. If you'd prefer to head for the water after your Spanish class, then why not take a boat ride on Lake Titicaca and soak up the surrounding mountain scenery. There are also 3,000 km of coastline with dream beaches waiting to welcome water lovers. Some sections of the coastline boast huge waves and offer some of the best surfing conditions in the world.
