Colca Lodge

Colca Canyon

Colca lodge has been built completely of stone, mud bricks and thatch roofs, which has kept in tune with the local surroundings which is all adobe housing.  It is located in the heart of the Valley next to the Colca River in the midst of ancestral farming terraces and with a natural hot springs overlooking the river this is a perfect place to have a drink at the end of the day

Why we recommend it:

  • Natural hot springs
  • Simple yet charming rooms
  • Beautiful setting in the valley
  • Good food and service




The Colca Lodge is at an altitude of 3250 metres above sea level. The climate of the Colca Valley is dry and sunny most of the year, with daytime temperatures between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius. Nights are cold and in winter – June to August – nocturnal temperatures can be as low as minus 8 degrees Celsius.

The Colca lodge is a wonderful mixture of materials, with walls of stone and adobe, and roofs of eucalyptus trunks covered with thatch, the materials commonly used in Colca. Comfort is there first priority. The layout of the buildings are almost as intriguing as the surrounding landscape.

Cheerful yet simple rooms and friendly service make the Colca Lodge, (while not an ‘international standard’ hotel), the best option in the Colca Valley. As well as offering excellent Condor viewing opportunities nearby, the lodge is an ideal base for active options, such as hikes or horse rides, or exploring this lesser visited part of Peru

Walking from the reception hall to the drawing room and bar, there are magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.  The dining room, a spacious pyramidal structure, leads onto a circular terrace with superb views of the valley, cliffs, river, and crops on the terraces that surround the lodge

Within the lodge are; massage rooms, Jacuzzis, large relaxing pool and all with views of the river and the terraces.  The highlight though is the hot pools down by the river, where the sound of the river, and the stars are a great place to have a beer at the end of the day.

Colca Lodge has been able to combine its attractive rustic style with total comfort without damaging the surrounding environment, making it ideal for both a retreat to relax or as a strategic base to explore the region. This is probably the best option in the Colca Valle with regards location and experience.
