Arequipa & The Classic Colca Canyon

Arequipa &  The Classic Colca Canyon

Day 1 Arrival to Arequipa
We will wait for you in the airport of Arequipa and bring you to your hotel in the city centre. In the afternoon you have a private city tour in this beautiful colonial town including the colorful Santa Catalina Monastery.  Arequipa is located in a beautiful landscape surrounded by three volcanoes that can be seen from anywhere in the city: El Misti, Chachani and Pichu Pichu.

Day 2 Arequipa - Colca Canyon

In the morning we travel by bus to the Colca Canyon, twice as deep as the Grand Canyon and probably one of the deepest canyons in the world. On the way we will pass through the Aguada Blanca reserv where you can observe llamas, alpacas and vicunas in their natural habitats.  Arriving to the Colca Canyon you will enjoy the scenery of original agricultural Inca terraces and tonight you can soak in the relaxing hotsprings under the clear star heaven of the southern hemisphere.

Day 3 Colca Canyon
Today we get up early to visit “El Cruz del Condor”, a place on the side of the canyon from where we are able to observe condors soaring on the thermal winds coming from the canyon below. We visit the local villages and markets and make a short walk in this beautiful countryside. Tonight you have another oportunity to enjoy the hotsprings.

Day 4 Colca Canyon - Arequipa

We travel back on a scenic route through the Aguada Blanca Reserv and arrive to the white colonial city of Arequipa in the afternoon.  Enjoy the excellent food and nightlife.
