  • Top Five Stops Along the Colca Canyon Trail

    Just a few hours drive from Arequipa, Peru’s second-largest city, is the Colca Canyon. One of Peru’s most astonishing natural attractions, the Colca Canyon is approximately double the depth of the United States’ Grand Canyon, and the second deepest in the world.        Compared to the tourist-heavy Inca Trail leading to Machu Picchu, the Colca Trail receives only a fraction of the visitors, but the number is growing as word spreads about the canyon’s stunning views, historic villages, and rare species of wildlife. Much of the Colca Canyon can be experienced in just a few short days, with or without a guided tour, and these five places should be on any itinerary into the canyon.

  • Old Vines, New World

    Chile has a rich wine history dating back much further than its recent popularity would suggest. The Spanish conquistadors and missionaries who arrived in the 16th century promptly planted old world vines in what was obviously very grape-friendly terroir. It wasn’t until much later, however, that winemakers got serious with their production techniques, and wine drinkers of the world have definitely taken notice. Since then, the market has exploded. Vineyards throughout Chile have opened their doors to visitors, and the number of companies offering winery tours can be quite intimidating. Fortunately, we’ve done the work for you, and any of the tours in this guide are sure to provide you with an enjoyable, uniquely Chilean experience.
