Trekking through the Colca was one of the most amazing things I did during my four month journey through Latin America. I was indeed dizzied by all the companies that offer tours, but a local couchsurfing friend told me to ask for Andres Calcina. I had a most amazing time and will now tell everybody the same!  Our three-day track through the Canon was all it promised to be and more. I teamed up with four other guys and together we had an unforgettable trip. Andres is incredibly friendly, laid-back and funny, but also very knowledgeable and speaks great English. He takes great care of the group, whether in terms of food and drinks, places to rest, safe walking, and many stories about the Colca Canon by the campfire at night. And all that Andres advertises is true, go with him and you will actually avoid the well-trodden paths, family huts and conventional tourist lodges, making it an unforgettable cultural experience which includes not just hiking but also hot springs, visiting a local museum to see how the people live in the canon, eat fruits from the cactus along the way, listen to the canon’s legends and get warm around the campfire. You will have the experience of being the only one hiking the canon, astonished by its beauty. If you make a trip into the Canon, go with Andres Calcina! Thank you so much!
