Peru is more than just Machu Pichu. Let this video take you to some of the nation’s most iconic sites, but then lead you far off the tourist trail to see what the country is really like.
Bummed that winter is coming and you’ve got to put your bike away when it snows? No worries! Summer’s coming to South America and, judging from this video, cycling in the mountains of Peru looks like a stunning experience.
July 28 marks Peru’s day of independence from Spain. To mark the occasion, here are some photos of this lovely South American country that has much to offer any traveller lucky enough to go there:

The world’s largest thermal river is thought to be in Peru’s Amazonian rain forest. The “Boiling River” flows hot for more than six kilometres and is as wide as a two-lane road. Its temperatures are hot enough to cook animals that fall into it.
There’s more to Peru than Machu Picchu. This traveller journeyed to Iquitos, a city that lies in the heart of the Amazon rainforest which happens to be the largest city in the world that is inaccessible by road. This is what he saw.
