Whether Andes, rainforest or Pacific coast – special accommodations throughout Peru promise a unique travel experience in harmony with nature.
A castle on Lake Titicaca, a floating hotel on the Amazon or glamping against the backdrop of the Andes – unusual accommodations with a sustainable concept make it possible to experience Peru’s unique landscapes with all your senses.
Cusco, the cradle of the Inca empire
Cusco in southern Peru is a must-see on any trip through Peru. In addition to the world-famous Inca citadel of Machupicchu, countless other fascinating relics of the Inca culture can be found here. The sacred valley is a true mecca for hiking and trekking enthusiasts and traditional villages offer insights into everyday life in the Andes.
The glamping accommodation Chaska Ocupi allows you to spend a night in the middle of nature, in close proximity to the imposing multi-meter peaks of the Andes and the witnesses of the Inca era. The tents are each equipped with their own terrace and cozy soft beds. Comfortable tents are also available for communal meals and cozy hours. Ideal for a romantic night under the Peruvian starry sky.
The Wifala Harmony Hotel in the Sacred Valley, on the other hand, looks like the village of the Smurfs. Large portholes on the walls of the round buildings offer an unobstructed view of the surrounding mountains. Inside, too, everything is round, from the glass mosaics that shine in all the colors of the rainbow to opulent decorative objects in Inca style. The cottages are spread out in a spacious garden, and the complex is a perfect base for active pursuits in the Urubamba Valley.
In the footsteps of the sun god at Lake Titicaca
A truly royal residence awaits in the Castillo del Titicaca, the castle of Lake Titicaca. With its imposing bay windows, it is the absolute hotspot for marveling at the sunset over the endless waters of Lake Titicaca.
Titicaca Skyview also scores with the perfect view, with its high-quality furnished panoramic domes overlooking the lake. Wood stoves provide cozy warmth on cold nights at an altitude of 3,800 meters, and electricity and hot water are generated with the help of a solar system. Variety is provided by a wide range of activities from fishing trips, bird watching or sailing tours, with the magical Lake Titicaca and its surroundings always playing the main role.
Kay Pacha Lodge also focuses on luxury in harmony with nature, with its rooms and suites built entirely from local materials. Floor-to-ceiling windows entice guests with unforgettable views. Also special is the lodge’s location on the floating reed islands of the Uro, a self-sufficient indigenous community that has lived on Lake Titicaca for centuries.
Night in the jungle
A side trip to Peru’s tropical rainforest is also a must. The northern jungle region of Loreto is home to the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, one of the most biodiverse areas in the world. Thousands and thousands of plant species, insects, birds, reptiles, but also mammals such as monkeys or jaguars are at home here, the lifeline is the gigantic Amazon River.
You can get very close to this exotic environment on a river cruise, for example on board the Aria Amazon or the Aqua Nera from Aqua Expeditions or the Zafiro from Jungle Experiences. Equipped to 5-star standards, the small cruisers can also navigate remote tributaries, and during visits to native communities, passengers come into contact with the inhabitants of the rainforest. Culinary delights are provided by renowned representatives of the legendary Peruvian cuisine.
For those who prefer solid ground under their feet, the Treehouse Lodge is no exception. Wooden bungalows perch amid the treetops and bring the animal jungle inhabitants to eye level. Exciting activities such as night hikes, caiman watching or piranha fishing provide pure thrills.
