Colca Lodge Opens New Adobe Suites

colca lodge

The Colca Lodge is a charmingly rustic property in the Colca Valley of southern Peru. Set on the bank of the Colca River, the lodge’s design immerses guests in the lush surrounding landscape. The lodge boasts several eco-credentials, employing ecological radiant heat panels, geothermal energy and solar power to heat the water.

Recently they reopened six renovated suites made of adobe with traditional thatch roofs, which naturally regulate temperature, maintaining coolness under the hot sun and act as insulation in the chilly nights. Each of the ample suites is decorated with simple elegance, incorporating aesthetic touches of the Andean countryside, and has a private terrace and entrance, with stunning views of the area.

The Colca Valley and Canyon provide travellers a bountiful offering of activities that will get them out of their rooms and into nature, canoeing, mountain biking, hiking or venturing out to spot condors and wild alpacas and vicuñas. The lodge counts with three natural hot springs and a eco-friendly spa with stunning views of the valley that guests can enjoy while relaxing after a day of activity. And for children (and adults) there is an alpaca ranch on site with information about these beautiful cousins to the llama. Guests can interact with alpacas at the ranch and see firsthand the variety of colors and textures of their fur, which is used to make the famous alpaca sweaters and outerwear.

The Colca Lodge with its new suites offers travellers to the region a comfortable stay for their adventures in the Colca Valley and Canyon, making any trip that much better. For more information about a trip to Colca and a stay at the new suites, contact us.
