June is the best month to see Peru, so you’ll need to plan well ahead to guarantee the best options within a short window. The rainy season ends in May, leaving the landscape lushly green and the weather warm and sunny, though you can expect crisp, cool evenings at altitude. It’s an excellent time for hiking the Inca Trail.
Throughout the month, you’ll find a series of festivals across the country, which builds up to Inti Raymi. Held just after the summer solstice, it’s a celebration dedicated to Inti, the benevolent Inca sun god.
