Peru for Families

When we ask everyone in the office why they love Peru so much, the list just goes on and on. Maybe it’s the delicious food, the rich cultural heritage, the amazing scenery, towering Andean peaks or dense rainforest or perhaps simply the friendly and inviting people. All in all it’s a fantastic destination to explore with children and we pride ourselves on designing itineraries that will suit every member of the family. Older families will love the experience of Trekking the Inca Trail together and who can’t resist the chance to spend the night in a remote lodge deep in the Amazon? And if you want to see two of South America's most famous & impressive Unesco World Heritage sites, then consider combining Peru's Machu Picchu & Ecuador's Galapagos Islands for a true holiday of a life time.

  • Service rating : The holiday was extremely well organised and the partner organisations in Peru were fantastic.

    This is our second holiday with Tourdust and is highly recommended.

    We will use them again.
    Product : This was a fantastic holiday combining the rain forest and trekking in the Andes. All the guides were local people and really enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The accommodation was excellent and all transfers and transport worked really well. A true adventure.

    Ben feefo reviewer verified review for Family Holiday: Inca Trail for Teenagers on 12 September 2016

  • Thanks for organising an excellent holiday for us. It's my first time using Tourdust and I've been really impressed and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. You provided an excellent level of service all the way through, and the bespoke nature of the trip was fantastic whilst being really good value for money.
    Key highlights:
    - Le Kasbah de Toubkal blew us away - one not to miss!
    - The trek was amazing and my kids loved it. The camping was really fun, the food was excellent, and I'd particularly call out our guide Rashid who was fantastic show especially with my kids.
    - Riad Adore was outstanding - far exceeding my expectations - it was beautiful and we were very well looked after
    - Le Doux Tour was luxurious and a nice relaxing way to end the holiday.
    - Logistics were great and our main driver Mustapha was brilliant

    If there was one build / thing I would change, it's a very small one but some candles / lanterns to use in the evening whilst camping would have made it easier to stay outside for a bit longer.

    MissingMark Dilley reviewing Boutique Marrakech & Atlas Mountains on 07 June 2016

  • Truly another world. The sky was enormous and the summits snow covered. Blue irises, wild herbs and fruit trees flowered on the slopes. Even as I toiled up the dry river bed I gazed in admiration.

    Without exception, everyone was courteous and welcoming. Food was good ( and far too plentiful); accommodation clean. Above all-everything worked! A pick-up was promised for 9.00am. At 8.55 the doorbell rang. Impeccable.

    No praise is too high for the organisation and staff. I am definitely going back.

Highlights of Peru for Families

Our Peru Family Holidays have all been created to expose you to the best that Peru has to offer, but at a pace that is just right for your family. All of our holidays are private and customised just for you. We have developed two itineraries for families wanting to visit Peru. One is for older families wanting to trek the Inca trail and immerse themselves in Incan history and culture, as well as challenging themselves to a days white water rafting on the Urubamba River. Our other holiday is the Incas & Amazon holiday for those not wanting to attempt the trek. Families will still have a chance to visit Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, but will travel by train. They will then transfer to the rainforest for a fantastic jungle experience. All of our Peru holidays are bespoke, so if you would like to tailor-make your itinerary, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

When to go

The rainy season in both the jungle and the mountains is from November through April. In the mountains, the temperature is mild, but the days will be wet. If you choose to travel to the rainforest at this time, always be prepared for heavy rain that can continue for hours or days. Around 80% of the annual average 3000 mm rainfall occurs during this season.

May - October is a cooler, drier season in both the mountains and the jungle. In the mountains, expect sunny days with cold nights. In the jungle, general weather conditions are warm and humid. The average daytime high is between 78° and 93° F (24° and 31°C) and the average night-time low is between 66° and 78° F (20° and 24°C). Nevertheless between May and September, cold fronts from Argentina can sweep into southwestern Amazonia and push daytime highs down to 50° F (9° C) and the night-time lows to 43° F (5° C).

The peak season for trekking the Inca Trail is June - August when the permits sell out months in advance. The weather at this time is cold at night, but lovely in the days with little rain and plenty of sunshine. The rainy season lasts from November - March and whilst the treks are much quieter, the rain, especially in January & February, can make the trekking harder work.
