Australians' love affair with Peru continues

Australians continue to fall in love with Peru, embracing its incredible cuisine, fascinating ancient cultures and traditions and its natural icons, including Machu Picchu and the Amazon. PromPeru, Peru's tourism board, revealed that this year 42,870 Australians visited the country and the figures show no sign of slowing down.

With an increase in air seats from all major Australian cities, and increased competition on the South America routes and competitive airfare prices, it's no wonder more Australians are seeking a South American getaway. On the back of increased accessibility and affordability, Latin America specialist Chimu has also recorded new trends in the ways in which Australians choose to explore the bucket list destination.

According to Chimu Adventures co-founder Greg Carter, “today’s traveller is looking for immersion in every sense of the word, seeking to combine the traditional, the unique and the exclusive and no longer shying away from experimenting unconventional ways to do so.” Responding to this trend, Chimu Adventures has created a new luxury tour package designed to introduce discerning travellers to the highlights and icons of Peru whilst giving them the option to explore the paths less travelled in the most exclusive way.
