On the winter solstice, we completed the four-day high-altitude Salkantay trek to reach the dream destination of Machu Picchu.
Over the course of multiple day trips from Cusco, we explored well-preserved archeological sites in the Sacred Valley of the Inca.
The Inca Empire was a dazzling but short-lived explosion of human civilization, centered in its capital city of Cusco, Perú.
Climbing high onto the Andean Plateau, we visited mythical and cultural Lake Titicaca.
After a fast-paced first week of travel, we stopped for a week in the white city of Arequipa.
To visit the varied landscapes of southern Perú, we bounced around on a Peru Hop bus.
We are finally resuming our international travels with a two-month trip to Peru.
