Our Expert Guide will take you on a one of a kind 2-day nature excursion into the beautiful Colca Canyon where you'll enjoy marveling at pristine landscapes, mesmerizing flora and fauna, and gaining a better understanding of Arequipa's night sky.
We'll kick off our adventure by picking you up right at your hotel in Arequipa and heading to the second deepest canyon in the world, Colca Valley. Along the way we'll pass through Pampa Cañahuas where we can appreciate vicuñas, llamas, and alpacas grazing in their natural habitat. We'll then continue to the road's highest point, Patapampa, which stands at an amazing 4,800m, to marvel at the high volcanoes that surround the location.
Upon arriving in Chivay, we'll enjoy a delicious traditional lunch before an afternoon relaxing in the La Calera hot springs. That evening, we'll meet with our Expert Guide and head to Maria Reiche Planetarium to learn about how the ancient Colca Canyon inhabitants interpreted the night sky according to their myths. After this unique spectacle, we'll delight in a tasty dinner accompanied by a folk shore.
Day two will start off with an early breakfast made with fresh, natural food from the region. We'll then head to La Cruz del Condor view point to marvel at the majestic condors flying overhead and the Colca Canyon. On our way back, we will stop in several small villages in Colca Canyon, including Yanque and Maca, to gain a better understanding of the culture and take in more inspiring views. We'll top off our adventure with a final lunch in Chivay before returning to Arequipa.
Join us for an exciting journey discovering the hidden gems tucked in the countryside near Arequipa.
