Attractions & Activities In Arequipa & Colca Canyon
Kuoda’s private tours to Peru allow you to shape your own experience to your particular passions. If hiking is high-up on your agenda, just let us know. Two fabulous trekking options await in Arequipa: Colca Canyon and Cotahuasi Canyon.
Travelers hoping to explore either canyon will need to have a decent level of fitness as high-altitude trekking can be taxing. Having said that, wobbly legs and tired calves will be quickly eclipsed by spectacular views, stuck-in-time villages and glimpses of the area’s wildlife.
Of the two options, a Colca Canyon trek is the one that’s easier to access and more popular; it’s also better equipped with services along the route. Highlights here include the tiny village of San Juan de Chuccho; the Condor Cross lookout, a common viewing spot for the endangered Andean condor; and thermal springs, where you can stop off and soothe tired muscles.
Cotahuasi Canyon, on the other hand, offers a true sense of freedom and you’ll rarely cross paths with other tourists. The route here is difficult to access and services are limited, thus it entices only a small number of stout-hearted souls. However, if it’s panoramic views and a people-free wilderness you seek, this isolated trail will certainly please.
Of course, if you have sufficient time and are up for a challenge, you may want to traverse both canyons. Contact us today and get your free Peru trip quote today. All trips are personally designed for you by one of our travel experts here at Kuoda Travel.
