Peru is the heart of the Andes. It is also home to the driest in the world, a thin coastal strip littered with massive ruins dating back thousands of years, and two thirds of the country is jungle. This is the only guide for free-spirited travellers who want to get beyond both the Gringo and the Inca Trails. Activity packed for thrill-seekers visiting the country, Footprint Peru takes you surfing, white-water rafting and trekking through the heart of this fascinating land. With a comprehensive background section detailing all you need to know about the ancient culture and history of Peru, this guide also takes travellers off the beaten track to find wildlife sanctuaries, the source of the Amazon, pyramids, condors and the famous Inca Trail.
