Experience a grand adventure, and discover one of the deepest canyons in the world in just one day. Colca Canyon is a marvel that is located north of Arequipa, where the water of the Colca River runs, and the mountains reach up into the sky toa profound maximum height of 4,160 meters.
On this beautiful valley, we’ll be able to discover various agricultural fields, a series of volcanoes, natural thermal baths and fountains, and numerous churches. These churches, in their prime, were constructed from volcanic stone, in a mestizo, baroque style. Other popular activities Colca Canyon is used for includes adventure sports, like river rafting, downhill mountain biking, and mountain climbing, amongst others.
Travel along a trail with spectacular landscapes, and little towns every few kilometers, and arrive at the famous viewport, La Cruz del Cóndor, or Condor Crossing. This is the natural habitat of the majestic animals, which soar high above the South American Andes.
