Located in southwest Peru, the city of Arequipa has a spectacular natural setting up in the highlands of the Peruvian Andes, surrounded by three snow-capped volcanoes: El Misti, Chachani and Pichu Pichu. A visit to Arequipa gives an outstanding example of South America's colonial heritage. The well-preserved historic centre is a fusion of European and indigenous architectural influences, and contains many fine Spanish buildings with intricate Baroque facades. The city has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of its historical importance. Arequipa also acts as a springboard for adventures into the surrounding area.
Four hours north of Arequipa lies the impressive Colca Valley, an area of breathtaking landscapes surrounded by terracing and snow-capped peaks; we can arrange Colca Canyon tours as part of your holiday itinerary. Far below, in fact some 10,000ft below, the Colca River winds along the bottom of the world's second deepest canyon.
