• See condors close-up, soaring and flying on thermals in the Colca Canyon - the world's deepest.

  • Arequipa's historical centre, including Santa Catalina convent.

  • Look for hand-woven souvenirs made by the highly-skilled weavers in the area.

  • Gentle walks through stunning mountain scenery.

Marianne and driver from Arequipa to Colca Lodge were great. Very informative and Marianne was quite a character. Lovely bubbly personality. The driver was kind and drove safely.

Colca Lodge was amazing and it was great having the 3 nights here to relax. We did a half day tour of the canyon including the Condor cross, villages and surroundings. We used a guide and driver from the lodge that were excellent. On the second day we walked up to the local village and watched the school kids dancing in the main square - apparently they do this every morning from about 6.30am.

We then did a walk which took us through the village, past some amazing scenery and up to some pre-inca ruins and waterfall. Walking back to the lodge the path took us through the terraces of working farmland.

The food was good and the staff were good.
