a luxury vacation TO AREQUIPA & THE COLCA CANYON

Dubbed the White City, Arequipa’s colonial buildings glow with sillar from the surrounding volcanoes, and it is the gateway to the Colca Canyon.

Peru’s second-largest city sits in the shadow of three volcanoes, Chachani, El Misti & Picchu Picchu. Don’t miss a morning at the mouthwatering San Camilo market or a visit to the Monasterio de Santa Catalina before taking to the nearby canyons, caves, and volcanoes.

TRAELLING DEEPER

The Colca Canyon is reached via a winding four-hour drive north of Arequipa, through the lush Colca Valley with its stepped terraces and scattering of smallholding. The Colca Canyon is one of Peru’s most breathtaking spectacles.

Twice the depth of America’s Grand Canyon & bordered by snowcapped peaks, it is heaven for hikers and rafters. Mountain passes skirt Andean villages, pre-Incan ruins, hot springs and an array of Andean flora & fauna, including majestic condors, which wheel on the thermals overhead.
