Puno Peru

We left the volcano landscape and the Colca Canyon behind to continue our road trip to Puno and the floating island of Lake Titicaca.

The Uros people of Puno are the habitants of the floating islands and take care of over 40 floating islands, all accessible by boat from Puno.

A visit to the floating islands has become a very touristic and almost tacky thing to...

Colca Canyon Peru

From Chivay we made a more thorough Colca Canyon trek to explore this beautiful mountain pass north of Arequipa. The Colca Canyon is the most famous canyon of South Peru and attracts a lot of hikers and tourists wanting to do a trekking.

The road literally took us through the Zona de Vicunas and we made several stops to take pictures...

Arequipa is the second largest city of the country and I would dedicate several days to your stay here because there are a lot of nice things to see and visit.

The Monasterio de...

Chala Peru

Chala is a small village on the road between Nazca and Arequipa which will be worth a stopover because of its beautiful coastline and panoramic views over the South Pacific.

It's no wonder that Chala carries the Peruvian name for Coast as the area is known as a haven for wildlife lovers in search of sea lions and sea birds.

At the side of the road you'll also...
