Peru Gap Year

Peru Gap Year: Explore perfect Peru with Gap 360

Peru is a dizzying spectacle and not just because of the high altitude! The country is bursting with natural beauty, world-famous archaeological sites, vibrant cities, majestic Andean mountains, and the unmissable glories of Machu Picchu. Peru is also an adventure-seekers heaven; spend your gap year navigating your way through the tropical Amazon, trying your hand at extreme sports or setting yourself the ultimate explorer's challenge - hiking the unforgettable Inca trail. Head to the ancient city of Cusco and brush up on your Spanish skills at a language school, or take up one of the fantastic range of volunteering opportunities on offer in this magical country. Spot the rare condors in Colca Canyon or examine the mysterious Nazca Lines; a gap year in South America doesn't get better than this!
