Arequipa - Colca Canyon

Why travel to Arequipa?

Arequipa, known as the White City for its beautiful white walls of sillar, a volcanic stone, lies at the feet of the mighty volcanos of Mount Chachani, Mount Misti, and the snow covered peak of Mount Pichu Pichu. The downtown of the city, placed on the World Cultural Heritage list by UNESCO, features Mixed Baroque churches and mansions from the Colonial Period like the Monastery of Santa Catalina, a Spanish city in miniature with stone streets, beautiful patios, and plazas. Sabandía, Tiabaya, and Tingo, located among the large fields, are must see places, and the irresistible Arequipa cuisine is the perfect complement to the visit, such as rocoto relleno, chupe de camarones, and papa a la ocopa. You may need to loosen your belt a notch after a vacation in Arequipa, but rest assured that every mouthwatering bite will be worth it.  

Arequipa is the second-most populous city in Peru and arguably the most beautiful. 

The majestic Colca Canyon – one of the deepest in the world – is within easy reach. Taken all together, Arequipa’s attractions make it one of the most enjoyable supplements to Peru vacation packages.  

Whether your heart desires trekking, mountain biking, river running (white-water rafting) or clambering up Andean peaks, Arequipa makes the perfect base camp. No other place in southern Peru delivers the best of both urban and outdoor life – you can slalom down a sandy volcanic summit and still be back in your colonial mansion guesthouse in time for a dinner of spicy Arequipeño food and enjoy the nightlife.
