The newest extreme adventure in the Colca Canyon is a must-do while visiting this natural wonder. Only 5 minutes away from Chivay, next to "La Calera" hot springs. A series of increasingly exciting rides can be combined with some rock climbing. Courses range between 2000 and 6500 feet at speeds of 50-70 MPH. All this in beautiful scenery, with breathtaking views and friendly company. Fun for all ages!

This was my first time zip lining and I felt comfortable and safe with Natan and Luis. We got to go upside down, spin around and Natan came in tandem with me for 'extreme'. We laughed and screamed (in excitement) so much. Well worth a visit and nice view of the canyon.

We had an incredible time at the Colca Zipline. The experience was exhilarating - you zip at high speeds through tree tops from one mountain side to another with amazing views of the forest, river and mountains. This was the first time either of us zip lined - we are not the extreme-adventurous type - but it looked very exciting... More

We did the great tour . We were welkomed by Nathan. He explained us the tours. We did more ziplining all over the world but this one was really one of the best. Me and my husband (54 and 50 years of age) enjoyed it every minute. Sometimes it was breathtaking. But that's the kind of adventure we are looking... More

With limited time in Chivay I had to decide between watching condors fly in the Colca Canyon or flying around the canyon myself on zip lines. I chose the latter, and what fun it was. I chose the monster 6 line option, and had more and more fun with each go. Natan and Elvis were pros and instilled plenty of... More

We saw the billboard outside the Chivay bathed and asked our guide to go. Was absolutely worth it. Karen and Coco are a good team that were patient and encouraging for novices like us. Three basic packages. We took the basic one (two goes). A bit strenuous but we got it done in good time. The more advanced ones looked... More

We went with our 5 year old and 7 year old, we weren't sure we were going to do it thinking it may be too much for our kids. But we felt very safe, the owners are very professional and made us and out kids feel really good about going ahead with it. We did the panoramic lines (i.e. not... More

Thanks Keren, Danny and Elvis for a fantastic afternoon zip lining over the Canyon! It was an amazing experience not to be missed in Chivay and/or to make the side trip! We did the full 6 lines and really appreciated the help that Keren gave to my wife by going tandem with her on the big lines to assist with... More

I had a great time zip-lining in the Colca Canyon. All of the employees were incredibly helpful and easy to talk to. They helped me practice so that I could zip-line upside down. They really made it an enjoyable experience.

Fully focused on safety and instructions, those guys are professionals. Experience was very good and gives maximum adrenaline. To find it: take the (collective) taxi to La callera a.k.a. Hot springs. The zip line trail is right after the Hot springs. Really recommend this center.

My wife and I did the monster run and we loved every minute of it. The guides were very experienced and safety conscious. The runs were exciting, long and fast. This is great fun for anyone looking for some excitement
