Colca Canyon Condor Watching

Colca Canyon is the second deepest canyon in the world! It is also one of the best locations in South America to see the great Andean Condor at close range. The 65 mile long canyon is full of attractions like Inca terraces (“andenes”), waterfalls, wildlife and the emblematic natural hot springs. 

People living in the villages and communities around the canyon still maintain their traditions and culture. Its a great place to learn more about weaver women who still knit the millenary way with natural and local products. 

The Mirador Cruz del Condor is the best location to spot the majestic Andean Condor. The Condor plays an important role in the mythology, culture and folklore of Peru’s Andes people as it used to in the Incas times. As one sees the grand bird gently glide past the cliff edges of the canyon, one realizes its importance in the Andean culture. 

Remember that we can personalize any part of this adventure to fulfill your needs and desires. Just contact us!

“We were looking for a complete adventure in Cuzco. Since we have 3 kids (2 boys and 1 girl) that liked outdoors activities we found this adventure perfect for us. Not only did we have the best time with my family, we also got the chance to bond like we had never expected”

“We decided to go on an epic adventure to South America. A close friend referred us to BMQ Travel since she had traveled with them and had a blast. My friends and I are very serious about Rafting and Mountain Biking so we talked to Alberto about some unique routes. The result was: Amazing”
