Join Blue Sky Fibers in Peru
October 15-24, 2017
Our Destinations: Lima-Arequipa-Colca Canyon
Welcome to the once-epicenter of the Inca Empire. To a country of contrasts, where cutting-edge high-rises stand beside 18th century churches; where modern fusion cuisine takes cues from ingredients used for millennia; and where Peruvians proudly wear the patterned textiles of peoples past.
This is Peru, a place of vast beauty and millenary culture. This is a place where visitors experience living history – experience the story of humanity, traversing the centuries, traveling back more than 5,000 years, to the dawn of modern civilization
Yesterday’s Peru: etched petroglyphs and ancient cities, crumbling ruins and the footprints of the ages. Natural wonders and manmade marvels, curated museums and rural fields. Today’s Peru: a country filled with stunning vistas and amazing cities, indigenous markets and timeworn villages.
We’re traveling to Lima, the City of Kings: a colonial wonder of Spanish architecture, rich pre-Columbian heritage, ethnic diversity, remarkable cuisine and an impressive emerging arts and fashion scene. Overlooking the Pacific, Barranco, an artsy neighborhood that was once the seaside resort for Lima’s upper class. Lima leaves many reasons to linger longer.
We’re in Arequipa, the City of White, named for its glistening white buildings made of volcanic stone sillar. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, volcanoes and deep canyons. It’s a modern city founded in 1540 but with a history dating back to the 6th & 7th centuries BC and a UNESCO world heritage site. Time to rest, relax and enjoy the City of White as we acclimate ourselves for the next magical leg of our journey!
And we’re spending most of our time wrapped in the luxurious environment created by Colca Lodge Spa + Hot Springs in Colca Canyon. One of the most spectacular landscapes in Southern Peru-where the river is united with the sky, the Sun with the Moon, and the mind with the body. The lodge is inspired by pre-Inca structures and rooms connected with gardens. Pure bliss while relaxing in the thermal springs located on the Colca Lodge property utterly divine!
