Northern Peru, Peru Travel Itineraries and Places to Stay

From Trujillo and Chiclayo on the coast to the origin of the Amazon River at Iquitos in the northeast, Northern Peru is a often remote, off-the-beaten-path travel experience that blends archaeology, natural history, local culture and adventure.

Archaeology - the Chimu and Moche civilizations pre-date the Inca. From around Trujillo and Chiclayo you can visit sites less crowded than the popular sites further south: Kuelap, Tucume, Huaca Rajada and Chan Chan.

Chan Chan Peru

The epic overland circuit from Chiclayo to Cajamarca travels from the coastal desert, across the Maranon River, into the jungles of the Amazonas Department.

Along the journey you will stay in the remote town of Chachapoyas, hike to the towering Gocta Waterfall, explore the Chachapoyan fortress of Kuelap, the tombs at Revash and the Sarcophagi of Karajia.

The fantastic and spectacular route circles back to the west, down and across the Maranon, up to Calendin and on to Cajamarca.

La Petaca Cliff Northern Peru

Some of Peru's best beaches are in the north - festive Mancora and romantic Punta Sal are two of our favorites - an ideal finish to a tour of northern Peru.
