Tailored Travel & Cultural Journeys

Itineraries Featuring Colca Canyon Accommodation in Colca Canyon

The Colca Canyon is the canyon of the Colca River in southern Peru and is considered to be the world's deepest canyon, home to the Andean Condor. Snow-cappped mountain peaks on either side frame the magnificent scenery, which is in places green and almost tropical, in others rocky and precipitous. The local Colca people still cultivate terraces along the canyon walls in many places, and many traditional towns and villages can be found all along the length of the canyon. The small, unpretentious town of Chivay is undoubtedly the most important in the area, found on the upper part of the river where the canyon is not so deep. 


The Colca Canyon can be reached by car from Arequipa in about 3 hours. From the Colca Canyon it is a half day drive to Lake Titicaca, through beautiful high Andean scenery, making it the perfect waypoint on your trip across Southern Peru.
