Only in Peru & Bolivia

Breathtaking nature, remnants of ancient civilisations from times past, amazing food – Peru and its neighbouring country Bolivia have it all. Let Marco Polo show you how to experience the unique things these two South American countries have to offer: 

FOR FISH LOVERS

Anyone who goes to Peru without eating Ceviche has not actually been there. This national dish – raw marinated fish – is a delicacy that you should definitely try when in Lima, for example in the restaurant Punto Azul (www.puntoazulrestaurante.com/)

ADMIRE THE CONDOR

It is rare to come as close to the noble condor, the iconic bird of the Andes, as at the Cruz del Condor in the Colca Canyon. Other tourists know this as well though – you won’t be the only one trying to catch a glimpse of these mighty vultures.

MAGNIFICENT HIKING

A well preserved section of the Capac Ñan, the ancient Incan street that at one time connected Quito in Ecuador with La Paz in Bolivia, can be experienced in Peru by hiking it.

SOFT, FLUFFY AND WARM

Peru produces some of the finest Alpaca wool. In Arequipa it can be found in exclusive shops, such as the Casona de Santa Catalina, in the form of sweaters, blankets and scarves.

A TRIP TO THE DESERT

The new trendy sport in Peru is referred to as sandboarding. Surfing the sand dunes on a synthetic board is great fun, you don’t have to worry about falling in the water and there is no shortage of sand in Ica.

THE SALT OF THE EARTH

Allow yourself an experience that will push your consciousness to its limits: a jeep tour on the Bolivian Salar de Uyuni, the largest expanse of salt in the world and suspend your perception of time and space.

DANCE OF THE DEVILS!

The former silver mining city of Oruro, is the centre of the Bolivian carnival where, among the hustle and bustle, one can watch the colourful parades and dances of the Diablada.
