Palca Canyon Tour from La Paz
From US$75.00
Overview
Explore Palca Canyon’s eroded landscape of rock formations, caverns, and spires on a full-day hiking tour from La Paz that’s a convenient way to explore the Andean landscapes just outside the city. You’ll find a mix of arid canyons and hidden oases, pause midway through the day to cook a hearty lunch in the open air, and hike with a group that’s capped at six people for personalized service.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in La Paz, then board a climate-controlled minivan for the short trip to Palca Canyon, also called Cañón de Palca. Step into the canyon, which often enjoys warmer temperatures than La Paz, and set out hiking through a series of smaller, winding side canyons. Occasional springs create oases of moss and green plants, in dramatic contrast with Palca Canyon’s bare rocks and cliffs.

After working up an appetite, break for a cooked lunch that’s served with a beer or beverage, then keep hiking through the afternoon before returning to the city. This Palca Canyon hike concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
