4 DAY - AREQUIPA AND COLCA CANYON

Daily Departures

4 Days

Arequipa is the second largest city in Peru, located 1,024 km south of Lima. Founded in 1540 and is one of the country’s most attractive cities, full of colonial churches and mansions. Arequipa is known as the White City because much of it is built of ashlars, a smooth white building stone carved from volcanic lava quarries.
A few hours from Arequipa is Colca Canyon, the second deepest canyon in the world. Here you will have the opportunity to see the majestic Condor, whose wingspan measures up to 5m.
Hotels quoted are tourist, superior and first class categories (similar to 3*, 4* and 5* categories).  The hotels we use are clean, safe, with private facilities and are well located.
