What to do in Colca Canyon?
The classic tour lasts two days, all by bus (15 - 25 group) with English and Spanish guide or by private vehicle. We will see the terraces throughout the valley cultivated by the locals, the condors and take a dip in the hot springs.
If you have good physical condition to face the descent 1000 m and 1000 m of ascent we can opt for a 3-day hike to explore the depth of the Colca Canyon and typical remote villages, which will access on foot. We will sleep at homes in basic but comfortable amenities; this is an opportunity to meet with farmers and stay in touch with them and their daily lives in the Andes
