Arequipa and the Colca Valley, 4d/3n

Arequipa and Colca: The White City and the World’s Deepest Canyon


One of the quickest growing cities in popularity is the “White City” or Arequipa. It’s name comes from the white volcanic stone used to build many of its important structures. It’s backdrop is the gorgeous volcano “Misty” and sitting just 3 hours away is the mysterious Colca Valley and Canyon. The canyon is deeper than the Grand Canyon in the US and the valley boasts some of the beautiful natural landscapes found in the Andes. These two destinations are both worth weeks and weeks of exploring, but the best can be seen in a 4 day trip.
