2 Day Tour to Colca Canyon - 2 Days

The Colca Canyon is a canyon of the Colca River in southern Peru, located about 160 kilometres of Arequipa. With a depth of 3,270 metres, It is one of the deepest in the world. Its length is about 70 kilometres.

The Colca Valley is a colorful Andean valley with pre-Inca roots, and towns founded in Spanish colonial times, still inhabited by people of the Collagua and the Cabana cultures. The local people maintain their ancestral traditions and continue to cultivate the pre-Inca stepped terraces, called andenes.

The most distant source of Amazon River is accessible from the Colca valley via Tuti, a one-day trip to a spring located at 5,120 metres, where snowmelt from the Mismi bursts from a rock face. Other attractions include the Infiernillo Geyser, on the flanks of the volcano Hualca Hualca, which is accessible on foot, horseback, or mountain bicycle, and a number of casas vivenciales where tourists can stay with a local family in their home and share in their daily activities.
