We will try to offer you an ideal itinerary for a honeymoon in June in Peru and let you discover everything there is to see in these distant but fascinating lands. Your honeymoon in Peru can unfold between the mysterious and spectacular Northern lands still little known, to explore the Peruvian Amazon forest with rivers and nature reserves among the most beautiful in the world, or with a trekking among the high peaks of the Sierra, the mountainous area of the Andes with the highest peaks (even 6000 meters). But for many of you who have not yet visited Peru, the classic southern tour is practically unmissable, and therefore this is the tour we offer you.
You will arrive on an international flight in city of Lima, cultural, industrial and financial center of the entire country. With its historic center, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco, among squares, museums and palaces, you will immediately enter the heart of the origins of Peruvian history. From Lima you can continue to Paracas, crossing the lunar landscapes of the desert pampas and skirting the Pacific Ocean, you can admire endless wild beaches beaten by the waters of the Ocean, covered by expanses of sandy dunes alternating with lush fertile valleys.
The arrival in Paracas is characterized by the spectacular view of its bay. The area is immersed in desert lands, caressed by continuous windy currents, fishing villages and isolated beaches shaped by ocean waves. An important point of attraction is the Paracas Nature Reserve, with the presence of numerous specimens of fur seals, sea lions, penguins, pelicans and other species of birds and marine animals. From here you can reach the Ballestas islands and admire the “candelabrum”, a geoglyphic design similar to the Nazca lines.
Nazca it can be reached from Paracas through deserts and river oases of spectacular colors. The city enjoys a dry and warm climate all year round. From here, weather conditions permitting, you can fly over the mysterious lines through ultralight aircraft, to admire the charm of the drawings on the rocks of the desert below, representing animals and geometric figures.
You can then continue for Arequipa. Leaving behind the oceanic coast characterized by majestic rocks eroded by the wind overlooking the sea, you will begin to climb along the first hills of the Andes. At the foot of a volcano, on the banks of the Chili River, is the “white city” Arequipa, at 2.335 meters above sea level. Colonial city, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco, it is characterized by stone architecture, with light and soft colors. Points of interest in the city are the cathedral, the monastery of Santa Catalina, the church of San Francisco, the church de la Compania, the suburb and the church of Yanahuara.
From Arequipa you can head towards the Colca Valley, the Cruz del Condor, panoramic point on the majestic canyon below, and the Pass of the Volcanoes. You will then continue towards Puno, a city located on the western bank of the Titicaca lake, a sacred place for its population, at an altitude of 4000 meters. Here you will sail on the waters of the lake to reach the curious floating islands inhabited by the Uros.
From Puno you will reach Cuzco and the surrounding archaeological sites. It was the capital of the Inca empire and is considered the historical capital of Peru. There are numerous points of interest to visit, from squares to churches, from the cathedral to the convent and the historic districts.
