Itinerary / Included


Day 01: Arequipa – Colca Canyon.

This morning you will leave Arequipa (aprox. 08:00am) and cross the snow-capped Misti, Chachani and the Ampato Volcanoes to arrive at the Colca Valley. You will travel towards the Pampa Cañahuas National Reserve, home to many wild vicuñas, alpacas & llamas. You will continue your journey, passing the villages of Torja and Patapampa with their Colonial churches and Inca terracing to arrive in Chivay in the afternoon. Chivay lies at an altitude of 3,600m above sea level. There is an optional visit to the 40ºC thermal-medicinal baths in La Calera. (Entrance fee to the pools is not included and is US$ 7.00 per person approximately – subject to change)

Note: The optional visit to La Calera Hot Springs is for clients staying in Chivay town only.

Day 02:  Colca Canyon – Arequipa.

Following breakfast, you will travel to the ‘Cruz del Condor’, a spot considered to be the best viewpoint to watch the majestic andean condors ascending from the valley. The Colca Canyon is a canyon of the Colca River and one of the deepest canyons in the world. It is home to the Andean condors that can be seen at close range as they fly past the canyon walls, rising on the thermals. At the ‘Cruz del Condor’ viewpoint, the canyon floor is 3,960 feet (1,200 m) below the rim of the canyon. After this amazing spectacle, you will continue your journey back to the town of Chivay, taking in the beautiful Andean scenery and fascinating pre-Inca, Inca and Colonial history of the area. The road passes through several small villages founded in Spanish colonial times and still inhabited by people of the Collagua and the Cabana cultures. The local people maintain their traditional way of life and continue to cultivate the pre-Inca stepped terraces. Many of the women wear traditional dress with colorful embroidered blouses and flower-patterned hats. In the afternoon, after the lunch return to Arequipa city.
