A thoughtful tented camp in the Colca Valley that reflects the simplicity and rawness of the Peruvian landscape.

Puqio is located deep in the center of the valley, which means dramatic canyon views, surreal grasslands, and tapping into what is truly essential in life — turning back to nature.

Only a three hour drive from Arequipa, Puqio and the valley can be reached via long, winding roads through spectacular mountains. As you reach the elevated safari-style hotel in one of the world’s deepest canyons, volcanoes, sweeping viewpoints, and untrodden pathways lead the way to daily exploration.

What to do at Puqio

From rest and relaxation to getting a taste of local life, Puqio is about moving at your own pace.

To set the pace of the day, start mornings slow to savor every bit of the natural surrounding. With views unlike anything you’ve seen before, enjoy your morning tea and breakfast outdoors before heading to yoga or a gentle trek.

The afternoons are perfect for local exploration and the guides at Puqio will make sure you don’t leave without visiting the historical sites, local markets, and scenic spots. As for condor spotting, the region’s most famous activity, the best time to see them is from April to November, though with the right guidance seeing them offseason is also possible.


Puqio sits about 1.5km southwest of the town of Yanque. To get here, you will fly into Arequipa, before being transferred 3hrs north to the lodge.


When to Travel

The best time to travel to the Colca Valley in Peru is during the dry season, which runs from May to September. However, the valley has two main seasons: Gold (May to October) and Green (November to April). Due to the valley’s altitude, weather can be unpredictable, ranging from 10°C to 24°C during the day and 10°C to 0°C at night.

The best opportunities for outdoor activities and wildlife viewing happen during the dry season though adventurous travelers may feel inclined to visit during other times of the year, especially those looking for more lush, green landscapes, which can be seen during the rainy season.
