Colca Canyon

The Colca Canyon is the second deepest canyon in the world, twice as deep as the Grand Canyon, and it has a rich history with some of the oldest Peruvian indigenous groups.  This impressive region is made up of agricultural terraces, jagged volcanoes and sparse landscapes where llamas roam and wild Andean condors ride the thermals.
Colca is popular with tourists, but it is also a huge region; the distances are so large that you can go for hours without seeing any other tourist as you travel across the altiplano.

Enjoying the best of The Colca Canyon


Unwinding with pisco sourz beneath a spectacular canopy of the stars is a perfect way to end a day of exploring this beautiful place. The stars in this region are especially spectacular due to the high altitude and the lack of light pollution.

Where to stay


Our favourite lodge is The Colca Lodge, which has spacious and comfortable rooms that look out onto the a that feeds three natural outdoor thermal baths.
