Exploring Peru: A Photographer’s Journey


Photographer Craig Howes, hailing from South Africa, explored Peru on Contiki’s Andes and Amazon Highlights trip and he took over our Instagram account, sharing his journey as he treks through the Andean mountains and the Amazon jungle. If you wanted to see why Latin America is always a good idea, check out some of his photos:

Hey Guys, it’s @craighowes and I’m going to be taking over the Contiki Instagram account this week to share our #andesandamazon adventures with you! First stop is the beautiful little town of Cusco in Peru. It’s filled with beautiful Inca and Spanish architecture. Here is a shot from the main square. Hope you enjoy.

Today started off with a full breakfast at our old Inca Palace hotel in Cusco. Next we hit the road in our tour bus to the legendary Sacred valley. Its one of the best drives I’ve experienced in my life… …..and here is a shot of some local llama we met along the way. Instagram takeover @craighowes #andesandamazon adventure in #Peru #noregrets

It’s @craighowes and I’ve really enjoyed hijacking the Contiki page for the week to show you the beautiful Peru. I thought I had to post a Classic Machu Picchu shot before we head off to the Amazon Jungle tomorrow. You will experience all this on the Contiki #andesandamazon adventure- it has been the best trip of my life #Contiki #noregrets #peru
