The Destination
If vine-veiled temples and mysterious ancient empires ignite your imagination, Peru is the place for you. Here, steamy jungle pathways wind along mountain ridges en route to some of the world's most mind-blowing ruins. Home to the snow-capped Andes, the lush Amazon Basin, and a desert-dusted coastline, this South American country has a wildlife-packed landscape—exotic beasts like pumas, llamas, and giant anacondas call the "Land of the Incas" home.

Beyond its surplus of stone masterpieces, Peru also boasts a host of enchanting cities. Once hailed as the "City of Kings" by Spanish conquistadors, Lima's historic streets are sprinkled with Spanish Colonial-style cafés, glass skyscrapers, and grand plazas, while Cusco's colorful cathedrals offer an ethereal gateway to Machu Picchu.

Peru's storied shrines and charismatic cityscapes are truly transcendent—with this seven-day Escape from Gate 1 Travel you can see their splendor firsthand:
