Itinerary

Day 01: Arequipa – Colca Canyon – Cruz del Condor

This day we will leave Arequipa very early in the morning (02:30 – 03:00am), we will start a direct trip to the Cruz del Condor stopping for breakfast only.

Approximately at 8:30 am we will arrive at the Cruz del Condor a spot considered to be the best viewpoint to watch the majestic andean condors ascending from the valley, also you will enjoy a great view of the Colca Canyon 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, we will continue our 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 in Chivay return to Arequipa city.
