Come and enjoy an impressive Full day tour through one of the deepest canyons in the world. Disconnect at least one day from the city and fully enjoy the nature that surrounds this valley. Our guide will show you all the beauties such as the huge birds, beautiful alpacas and vicuñas and more than 79 different types of cactus. Our tour starts very early to be able to arrive on time at the Condor's Cross and watch the condors flying over our heads, follow our route to different tiny towns and of course visit the relaxing hot springs.

I liked the view more from the Mirador del Cura that is nearby. This place is a little bit more for the masses with more opportunity to look in every direction , so it’s maybe better for a condor watching.

We had booked a trip with our travel agent so this condor trip was included. We were so lucky to see a few condors here at the Cross, but in fact, the stop and walk before was even more spectacular as they were flying above our heads. I only wish we could have stayed longer, but our guide pushed us to keep walking. The views are beautiful a well.

Visited as a day tour from Arequipa in Dec 2019. Most people visit from Arequipa as either 1 or 2 day tour. I opted for one day tour as the itinerary looked largely similar, with the 2 day more leisurely and you spend more time in Chivay (where you spend the night) and you can explore or trek if you want. One day tour is more tiring (depart Arequipa at 3am, return at 5pm) but it is an option for those with limited time. Highlight of the tour is the canyon and spotting the condor. We reached the canyon at about 8.30am and had about 50 min to try to see the condor. Lots of people but plenty of spaces to walk away from the crowds and appreciate the amazingly huge and deep canyons. For me, even without spotting the condors, the journey doing the canyons was worth the trip. We didn’t spot any condors until we almost took off. Someone spotted just near our car and we dashed out to see. It was just one condor. It is difficult to take any photo as it flew very high but you could see the large wingspans with white stripes underneath. I was happy enough to have spotted one. As said, even without the condors, it is an amazing place to visit.

I would have enjoyed the visit even without condors. The weather was perfect and the views were awesome. But we were also lucky to see condors – young ones, mature ones, flying and sitting on rocks just below the viewing place. Naturally, there are crowds, because all the guides bring the groups for the most suitable time – between 8 and 9 a.m. But the area is large, so if the condors are there any spot will be good for sighting and making pics.

The Mirador Cruz del Condor is a very popular spot but if you walk a few hundred yard from the 'Cruz' the crowds will thin out and you will be able to experience some time watching the magnificent birds as the catch the thermals. We worth the effort - just be careful near the road where everyone seems to think they are F1 drivers.
