The trip of a lifetime! My best friend and I chose this tour to celebrate our 30th Birthdays - it was Amazing!!! We had a really nice time visiting Cusco, Machu Picchu and going to the Rainbow Mountain. The tour guides were really nice and we told us a lot about everything. We visited in November and for Machu Picchu this was amazing - it was misty in the morning and sunny by mid-morning, so we got to see it with all weather types. Highly recommend going at 6am and spending most of the day there - circuit 2 and 4 were great! We even hiked up one of the mountains. Carlos, Judy, and Wilson were great and really educated us about each site.

Great way to experience Peru The tour was a great way to experience Cusco, the sacred valley, Machu Picchu and the Vinicunca mountain. We only had 4 full days, and it was the right amount of time. I was there with my best friend celebrating our 30th, so we will always cherish this moment. The tour guides (Carlos, Judy, and Wilson) were very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped us get immersed to the history of the Incas, and made us feel comfortable throughout the trip. The accommodation provided as part of the package was very adequate, and the overall experience was great.

Description Colca Canyon Peru Tour

With the Colca Canyon Peru Tour, you can enjoy the valley of volcanoes, the fauna and flora of this valley and know the beautiful and deep canyon. The COLCA VALLEY is located in the northeast of the Arequipa region at 3,600 meters above sea level, very close to the Ampato and Sabancaya volcanoes, considered one of the deepest in the world, reaching a depth of approximately 4,160 meters. With a privileged Andean vegetation due to its climate, it is one of the most extraordinary destinations in the country. Throughout the area you can see colorful pre-Inca cultivated terraces, and in the Cruz del Condor you can appreciate the majestic flight of the condors.

From the MIRADOR DE LA CRUZ DEL CONDOR, we can enjoy the flight of the Condor, this majestic bird in danger of extinction that inhabits the canyon. Its varied fauna will also allow the traveler to enjoy the presence of animals such as alpaca, vicuña, vizcachas, foxes, pumas, eagles, hawks and owls. This can be enjoyed on the flight of the condor tour.

On the Colca Canyon tour you can also enjoy the LA CALERA THERMAL BATHS, located 5 kilometers from the town of Chivay and offering five heated pools at 38 degrees Celsius, which allow you to bathe in its waters and enjoy its healing properties on ailments related to bones, muscles and skin. The waters of the calera contain 30% calcium, 19% zinc and 18% iron, elements that relieve muscle and bone pain. Here we can visit a small natural archaeological museum of the Colca, walk on the suspension bridge and enjoy a magnificent view, as the complex is located on the edge of the Colca River.

This will be a reward for those with tired legs.
