Colors and Flavors of Northern Peru

Discover a different side of Peru by traveling to the country’s northwestern coastal region. While not nearly as touristy or well-known as other destinations further south, the offerings here are immense, from the pre-Incan archaeological sites to a gastronomy that’s a melting pot of flavors influenced both by the land as well as the area’s many settlers over the centuries. Your home base for this journey is the stunning colonial town of Trujillo, which is known for its beautiful streets and colonial-era churches.

With it’s location near the sea, the cuisine in this part of Peru is rich in seafood, but also features a wide variety of delicacies, from thinly sliced pieces of cured meat, to cocktails made with the infamous pisco as well as lesser known liqueurs like brandies made from sugar cane. You’ll get a taste of all of this while spending time with your guides, a husband and wife who’ve worked in the hospitality industry for more than 20 years and across three continents. Today they call northern Peru their home, and some of their favorite things to share with their guests about this paradise include the diversity of northern Peruvian food, as well as the history of pre-Colombian civilizations. They, along with their Pervian drivers and tour assistants, will take you around to meet local families, where you’ll get to know a variety of Peruvian traditions, from the food to ceramic making!
