Colca Canyon / Full day tour

8 reviews
Come and enjoy an impressive Full day tour through one of the deepest canyons in the world. Disconnect at least one day from the city and fully enjoy the nature that surrounds this valley. Our guide will show you all the beauties such as the huge birds, beautiful alpacas and vicuñas and more than 79 different types of cactus. Our tour starts very early to be able to arrive on time at the Condor's Cross and watch the condors flying over our heads, follow our route to different tiny towns and of course visit the relaxing hot springs.

The morning dancers bring some excitement to the square - however for me the sight of the volcano Uyo Uyo on a pale blue sky background was the highlight of our short stay in Yanque - plus I bought a snazzy hat from a street stall.

This place seems to be a stop for all tour groups on their way to Colca Canyon. Even though it's usually quite early in the morning the locals seemed very keen to put something on for the tour groups that stop. So there are ladies with the ubiquitous alpacas, very cute, but also a group that puts on a dance. It consists of men (dressed as women) and women who perform a local dance in the centre of the main square, obviously for donations. Makes for a nice distraction whilst stretching your legs or having a quick coffee.

We were headed out to see the Condors at Cruz del Condors and stopped on the way to see the morning dance in the plaza. Colorful costumed locals danced and streets vendors peddled their wares. A nice way to start your Colca Canyon day.

We made a 15 minute stop here on the way back from Condor Point before our 5 hour drive back to Arequipa. What a little gem! The streets were buzzing locals in their traditional outfits and their adorable Alpacas. We found a Colca Sours stand so we took full advantage of that! We had a little walk up to the church and engaged with the locals before heading back to Arequipa. You don't need to spend long here at all as there isn't a massive amount to see.

The church is less interesting than Maca and as it’s not really on the road to the mirador of condors there are no life in the plaza contrary to Maca, a smaller village
