Overview
Located to the southeast of La Paz and lost in eternity, rests Palca Canyon.

Join this 7-hour small-group tour, starting at 9am with hotel pick-up in La Paz, and get ready to explore Palca Canyon and its unique environment with the company of a professional guide.
Highlights
  • Private Palca Canyon tour offers an active break from busy La Paz
  • Stay energized with an included cooked lunch plus beer or soft drink
  • Enjoy a varied landscape of dramatic cliffs, green plants, and natural springs
  • Includes round-trip transport in a climate-controlled van from La Paz hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in La Paz, and then board a climate-controlled minivan for the short trip to Palca Canyon. Step into the canyon, which often enjoys warmer temperatures than La Paz, and set out hiking through a series of smaller, winding side canyons. Natural springs create oases of moss and green foliage, in dramatic contrast with Palca Canyon’s bare rocks and cliffs.   After working up an appetite, break for a freshly cooked lunch with a beer or soft drink, and then hike on through the afternoon before returning to the city. This Palca Canyon hike concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

As Bolivia novices choosing the right tour company was a challenge. We came upon the Solace site and Caleb became our guide for three days. He is an outdoorsman and approaches his all-day tours from that perspective. As an American who adopted Bolivia as his home, he is

We did a one day tour to Palca Canyon with Caleb in June and he made sure we had an adventurous day. Palca Canyon is only a short drive away from La Paz, but it’s a completely different world. The scenery here is fantastic and the only other person we saw the whole day was a

Asbolute best tour guide I've ever experienced. I went to Bolivia with a group from my university. We had a set itinerary for all 13 of us. Caleb seemed a little too crazy for us at first. But after a car ride with him, he turned out to be just what some of us wanted. Some of us

We hired Caleb and Solace for three tours while we were in La Paz late last year. Caleb's enthusiasm and love for Bolivia was evident in discussions during our tours with him. Although US born and raised, he is Bolivian through and though. Our Spanish is rudimentary, so it
