Mustangs in Peru – Summer 2019

If you want an insight into how the Americas were before the Europeans landed, then Peru is a good place to start. The 15th-century Incan Empire, at its height, stretched along the east coast of South America, from Columbia as far down to midway through Ecuador, but its centre was in modern-day Peru. It has many remnants of its ancient Inca civilisation – of course there’s the wonder that is Machu Picchu, but there is also the Incan capital, Cusco where you’ll find the memorable sacred valley of the Incas. With dense jungle, tropical coastline and the wonderful Andes Mountains to explore too, Peru is a dream destination for History, Geography and General Studies students.
