With Peru’s history dating back to 9,000 BC, the idea of visiting this fascinating country can be daunting. That’s where Natierra® can help! Not only has our CEO, Thierry Ollivier, visited the country numerous times, but some of our very own favorite superfoods originate from Peru including Natierra®’s Dark Chocolate Covered Chia Seeds, InkaSalt®, and our Organic Cacao Nibs and Organic Cacao Powder. So let us, Natierra®, help you navigate the wonders Peru have to offer.
The number one destination in Peru is the awe-inspiring Machu Picchu. This ancient Inca City is one of the most popular destinations for travelers exploring Peru and can be dated back to the 15th century. Situated on the side of a mountain, Machu Picchu offers an inside look at how an ancient civilization lived by examining their architecture. Enjoy the beautiful mountain views, similar to the views of the Andes Mountains which is the home of Natierra® InkaSalt®. Be warned, only 2,500 visitors are allowed on the site per day due to stricter tourism laws implemented to maintain the integrity of Machu Picchu. If you plan on visiting the site, try to get there early as most guests arrive in the early to midafternoon.
If hiking and the mountains is exciting to you and Machu Picchu wasn’t enough to quench your thirst, there are plenty more options for you! Cordillera Blanca offers incredible sights, and challenging terrane for hikers looking for a thrill. Considered the world’s tallest tropical mountain range, Cordillera Blanca is home of the endangered Polylepis trees so please make sure to be aware of the environment around you and don’t litter while enjoying what these beautiful mountains have to offer.
After all that hiking and movement, take a load off at the Iglesia de Santo Domingo. This church offers a glimpse into the history of Peru while enjoying the beautiful local architecture and artifacts. With architecture dating back to the 16th century, it is also known as the final resting place for multiple Peruvian saints and even displays skulls of the more famous saints.
