Cheap Flights to Peru

Flight route prices based on searches on Cheapflights within the last 3 days, monthly prices based on aggregated historical data.

Once home to South America’s legendary civilisation – the Incas – Peru is a country that casts its spell on every visitor that steps on its land. And each year thousands of visitors book their Peru flights to experience the magic of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. But beyond these illustrious landmarks is a country blessed with the most spectacular scenery in the region: a stunning 2,500-km coastline and thousands of miles of lush Amazon rainforest that spills into the Atlantic.

Flights to Peru land in Lima, the capital. The vibrant city provides a good introduction to the country and base to explore other towns, but a few days is more than enough. The colonial city of Cuzco on the way to Machu Picchu and is well worth a stop. Incan descendants still live here and examples of colonial art are scattered throughout the stone-walled streets. West of Cuzco is the town of Aguas Calientes where tourists catch buses up to the awe-inspiring Incan city of Machu Picchu. Those in search of even more adventure could head back to Cuzco after exploring the ruins and take the train to Puno and explore the sacred Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable body of water.
