    If you are wondering how many days are needed to get to know the famous Colca Canyon from Arequipa , the answer is not so easy. There are a few options from one to seven days of touring depending on your time, budget and interests.

     Most popular option: 1-day trip from Arequipa

     Most people - particularly budget travelers - will choose this intense and exhausting option. Starting around 4 AM from your accommodation in Arequipa, you will drive for approximately 4 hours to Mirador Cruz del Condor to view these majestic birds. Later, you will be given some time to quickly dip in hot springs, have a brief lunch and then drive back to Arequipa where you arrive around 5 PM. If you are the been there, done that type of traveler or are simply short of time, then consider this option.

     Second most popular option: 2-day trip from Arequipa

     The same itinerary as the day trip, the two-day Colca Canyon tour from Arequipa gives you more time to sleep on day one as you don’t have to wake up so early. You also get more time to relax in the hot springs, walk in a traditional village and sleep well. On the second day you will reach the Mirador Cruz del Condor early in the morning to get the best spots and witness the flight of the Condor. Later on, you will drive back to Arequipa.

     Third most popular option: Multi-day trip from Arequipa (between 4 and 7 days)

     For those who like to get under the skin of a place and get to know an - as of this date - unspoilt, natural region, consider a multi-day tour that includes the Colca Canyon but also more places and sights such as the Valley of the Volcanes (Valle de los Volcanes) which has recently been declared a “GeoPark” by UNESCO. For example, this 4-day Colca Canyon and Valley of the Volcanoes Tour from Arequipa is ideal if you like secluded natural spots such as waterfalls, volcanoes, lagoons, viewpoints and a lot of Andean wildlife. Perfect for those who like to get off the beaten path.
