Colca Canyon

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Arequipa holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Thought to be twice as deep as America’s Grand Canyon, the Colca Canyon offers stunning beauty and animal life; a true natural spectacle.

Known for its countless 'shifts in mood' as you wander the landscapes, the canyon offers a change in scenery at every turn; from ancient farmland to the barren grassland of Sibayo. You'll also see herds of Vicuñas (a wild relative of llamas) and numerous birds, such as the Andean Condor.

Trek into the canyon to see oasis-like valleys, thermal springs and natural pools, and meet the local descendents who occupy the area; the Cabanas and the Collagua.
