  • 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.

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.

  • In Peru, home is where the heart is

    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.
