Below are some of the exciting new offerings in Peru.

Air Transat offerings

A range of new packages and à la carte hotel options in Lima have been introduced by Air Transat to coincide with the launch of year-round flights from Toronto and Montréal to Lima.

Women’s-only tours

Featuring an all-female team of guides, porters and chefs, Alpaca Expeditions will offer a women-only, seven-day Salkantay & Sacred Valley Tour this June.

Participants will find themselves in a range of accommodations, including unique options like glass cabañas and charming hobbit houses, while embarking on an off-the-beaten-path trek along the Salkantay Trail, exploring the Sacred Valley, hiking to Humantay Lake and touring Machu Picchu.

Participants will also enjoy immersive culinary workshops, wine tastings, guided coffee tours and an educational excursion to an alpaca farm to learn about the traditional art of weaving.

Five G Adventures trips

Recently, G Adventures revealed its new Geluxe Collection, including five Peru tours scheduled to debut in August.

This exclusive series blends active adventure with luxury, offering unique accommodations and personalized experiences. A standout feature is the “Your OMG Stay” program, which selects exceptional lodgings – such as Casa Andina Premium Sacred Valley and Refugio Amazonas Lodge – for their noteworthy features.

Travellers can also choose between two activities that align with their interests with the “Your OMG Day” program, whether it’s a hike to the Templo de la Luna or a culinary tour of Cusco, a via ferrata adventure or a hike to Perilnilloq Waterfall.

Aside from lavish experiences for active adventurers, Geluxe trips provide travellers with the chance to immerse themselves in local culture and traditional practices and to share meals with residents.
