Who we are

Colca Trek Adventures began providing quality Peruvian guided adventures of the Colca and Cotahuasi Canyons over 25 years ago.
Originally founded in the early 1980's by Mg Vlado Soto.

Expanded trip offerings provide our guests with an innovative in-depth South Peru experience and now include photography, birding, and archaeology.

We're very passionate of the Arequipa region we are so fortunate to share with visitors, and it's our goal to show our guests the Arequipa region we know as “AREQUIPEÑOS”.

Colca Trek is dedicated to providing you with best-class adventure travel experiences at affordable prices. Choose from a range of over 70 adventure choices in South Peru including climbing, hiking and biking trips, cultural tours, river rafting, horse ride expeditions, and much more.

Over the past 25 years our philosophy has remained the same: to enable travelers to immerse themselves in the country they are visiting; to learn to appreciate its people, cultures and wildlife and the delicate balance necessary for their coexistence.
