Private "Ruta del Sillar & Culebrillas" Tour

This tour will take you to two sillar canyons. The first canyon is where you will see the local workers working on making bricks made of the sillar material, which has been used to build most of the city of Arequipa. The second canyon is an untouched jewel where you will hike and marvel through this amazing and beautiful "culebrilla canyon".

The Colca Canyon is an incredible part of the world. We wanted to experience nature and culture without crowds of tourists so we hired a private guide for 4 days - Andres Calcina. Andres has good English and we planned the trip together by email, not really sure what to expect. We learnt that we could trust Andres! We were safe and comfortable in our private van with our excellent driver Joel. We had a magical time, Andres took us on hikes, we drove to isolated villages, stopped to photograph volcanoes and vicunas, saw a dozen condors with no-one else around, ate delicious meals and even went dancing together. Andres is so kind and knowledgeable, happy to answer questions and knows so many interesting places off the beaten track. Than you Andres, we are so lucky we met you.

This review should be a 5*. The Colca Canyon by motorcycle was fantastic. Abra Patapampa is one of the highest mountain passes in the world (elevation of 4.910m - 16,110ft) on the way to Chivay from Aqrequipa. It can be a risk for snow so plan to arrive early (we had 1 hour of snow because we arrived late from Puno). The road from Chivay-Huambo is amazing and well paved. The rest of the way to Majes is rough but very ride-able. The weather was sunny and mild. PeruMotors Motorcycle Arequipa rental experience was not good. I over paid $500 for the rental in error and it took over a month denials before they agreed to give anything but it was less than half back. Bike was good but I wouldn't trust them.

An incredible area to see the landscape and just how vast the area is. Obviously the big attractions are the Condors but you need to be there by 7.30 am as Condors fly early

Such an amazing location, there are plenty of viewing stops along the way to look down the canyon. The scale of the canyon is amazing and hard to get your head around. Further into the canyon there is a lovely viewing platform to watch to Condors early morning using thermal updrafts to float through the canyon.

We came here as part of our travel itinerary set up by our travel agent, and included was a coach journey with guide in Spanish and English where we drove in the canyon from Yanque to see the impressive condors. It was amazing to see them sailing above our heads in the sky. Regarding walking/trekking, I can’t comment as we on a coach trip, but it you do, I’m sure you need to be a very fit person on!!
