The lights turn off and the sky is rendered an expansive masterpiece by millions of stars. Suspended over 1,300 feet above the Sacred Valley of the Incas, our Skylodge cabin, a transparent capsule hanging on the mountain-side, is our front row seat to the wonders of nature. The awe we experience at seeing the night sky in all its splendor from the comfort of our beds in this artful capture is just part of the adventure.
Peru is the Land of Hidden Treasures. Some have been around for millennia, while others have just arrived on the scene. Some are natural, some are cultural. Some mysterious, others just plain delicious. While there are thousands of treasures to discover in Peru, here are five to whet your appetite.
One of the greatest joys of travel is the connections you make with the local people. It takes considered effort to break down language barriers and cultural norms, but it is in these very efforts that we learn the beauty of human interaction. On a recent trip to Peru with Intrepid Travel I had the privilege of meeting an incredible family who made me fall in love with South America all over again.
