Peru has the highest percentage of protected land in its National Park system of any country in South America. This makes for some excellent destinations for outdoor sports and activities. The diverse landscapes range from coastal wetlands, deep jungles to towering mountains, and everything in between.
The country is divided into three geographic regions: the coast, the Sierra, and the jungle. Each are well-known and well-suited for different adventure activities.
