Peru 2-Week Tours & Itineraries

Explore 25 trips designed by local kimkim specialists to get ideas for your trip to Peru.

Travelers with 14 days to spend in Peru will find a world of itinerary options available. One of the notable benefits of a two-week trip is the ability to combine Machu Picchu with one of Peru's remote regions—Huaraz or northern Peru are both off-the-beaten-path possibilities. Trekkers can check out multiple trails in 2 weeks, walking the Inca Trail before another multi-day excursion among the glaciers, lagoons, and mountains of Ausangate. Not interested in trekking? Take a deep dive into Peruvian culture, pairing ancient history with local experiences in the Sacred Valley and Lake Titicaca.
