Colca Lodge is a striking property set within the majestic Colca Canyon in southern Peru. The lodge lies just outside the charming town of Yanque, one of many traditional, long-established settlements situated nearby. The lodge's decor is inspired by the many ancient Inca ruins that have been discovered in the canyon and beyond, and the countless terraced hillsides which date back before the Incas provide a stunning backdrop.
There are 45 rooms, all with excellent views of the hotel’s picturesque grounds and the canyon slopes. There are several room categories on offer including doubles, triples, quadruples and several suites. All rooms have windows which let in plenty of natural light, an en-suite bathroom and a terrace. Guests are encouraged to relax and refrain from relying on modern technology as much as they would at home and in keeping with this concept, televisions are only available in communal areas.
The nearby volcanic springs lend the hotel particular appeal because they supply the property's own hot springs. There are a total of four hot springs, and they're noted for containing high levels of lithium which is thought to have a number of positive, soothing effects on the body. In keeping with the hotel’s eco-friendly policies, only natural materials such as straw and stone were used during the pools’ construction. There's also a full-service spa with a broad menu of treatments ranging from hot stone treatments to massages, facials and more. For those looking to discover the wider area, there are trips to a nearby alpaca farm, hikes to nearby pre-Inca ruins and opportunities for cycling, among other activities. And it's always a delight to return to the hotel and enjoy the spectacular natural scenery.
Although there are no child-oriented services or facilities, children are more than welcome to stay here and there is plenty to keep them busy in the area. Those travelling with young children are advised to book the Family Suite.
Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol
