Arequipa & Colca Canyon Tours

Top 2 Arequipa Peru Tours

Built-in 1540 in a valley that had been previously been farmed by pre-Hispanic tribes, Arequipa and its historic center are an essential destination while visiting Peru. The historic center is comprised of the remarkable Plaza de Armas, complete with its awe-inspiring arches and, the chief neoclassical religious structure in the country, the magnificent cathedral.

Historical Center of the City of Arequipa, the “White City”

Constructed in volcanic rock, the historical center of the city of Arequipa is a masterpiece of architecture and cultural heritage and should definitely not be missed on a trip to Peru.

While on an Arequipa Peru tour, there are several excursions and activities that we recommend you partake in: the most essential tours include a city tour of Arequipa itself, which includes the Plaza de Armas, the Cathedral, and the brightly-painted Santa Catalina monastery. There’s also the 2-day excursion to the Colca Canyon, which should not be missed. But there are some other interesting tour options as well, such as the Juanita Inca Ice Mummy, now displayed in the Catholic University’s Museum of Andean Sanctuaries. Or you could take a drive through the countryside to the Sabandia Mill, and the Parque Industrial, a park with bridges, lagoons and pools. Also worth exploring are the Toro Muerto petroglyphs, located outside of Arequipa. Toro Muerto includes 5000 stones and boulders with various anthropomorphic and geometric figures. Nearby is Querulpa, where dinosaur footprints from the Jurassic period have been discovered.
