Need a break from the city?

We’ve teamed up with one of the best travel agencies to offer you the best tours in and around Arequipa. Our most popular tour is to the Colca Canyon, one of the deepest canyons in the world.

Colca Canyon 2.5 days / 2 nights

Day 1

At 11:00am we pick you up by taxi at your hotel in order to bring you to the bus station in Arequipa. From there we are heading to Cabanaconde where we arrive around 4pm that day and stay at a basic hostel. You then have time to relax or explore the area until having dinner. Afterwards you have the option to visit a local bar and enjoy the evening.

Day 2

After having breakfast on the second day, we start to descend the canyon around 9am in order to arrive at our lodge in the oasis by 11am. This gives you some time to relax and have a swim in the pool. Around 1:30pm lunch is served and you can decide whether to stay at the oasis and relax at the pool or hike up to the canyon with your tour guide and watch the beautiful sunset. Around 7pm we are going to have dinner together and if you want you can have a drink at the bar before heading to bed early to be ready for the hike the next day.

Day 3

The last day we start the three-hour ascent of the canyon around 3.30am. Back in Cabanaconde we have breakfast together before a minibus will bring us to ‘Cruz del Condor, to watch the condors flying around the breathtaking scenery of the canyon. From here we take a tourist bus and have several stops along the way. First we will enjoy the hot springs where you can relax your muscles after the hike and we have lunch in Chivay afterwards. Our next stop will be at the highest point of this journey on 4910m ‘El mirrador del vulcanos’ to gather stunning views of the area and its volcanoes.

From there we drive back Arequipa and you are dropped off around 5pm at Plaza del Armas.
