Colca Canyon Holidays
Colca Canyon activity and adventure holidays from the travel experts at Exodus. Colca Canyon, twice as deep as the USA's Grand Canyon and second only in depth to its nearest neighbour Cotahuasi, is one of the deepest canyons in the world. Volcanoes to one side, glaciated peaks to another, and fields of agricultural terraces in the valley make it a unique location. Condors are usually easy to spot; the best time to see them is first thing in the morning as they soar on the rising thermals. Sitting at the top of the canyon, the condors glide majestically past, sometimes at eye level. As the sun strengthens, so do the thermals and the condors rise higher and higher until they are just specs in the sky.
