3-Day Arequipa and Colca Canyon

Arequipa and Colca Canyon -- Trip Photo of Peru tour  Peru map

Overview Itinerary Pricing


Arequipa's south Peru location is best visited by taking a flight from Lima (or Cusco or Juliaca) or bus or private car from Puno. You may spend a day in the city and then an overnight tour into the Colca Canyon, the world's second deepest canyon and home for the impressive condors. The chance to view condors in flight is worth an early morning rise!

Note: The condors are best viewed between April and October.

Prices are with a private city tour and a Colca Canyon group tour (SIC). For pricing with a private Colca Canyon tour, please contact us.

We recommend this 3-day/2-night itinerary to see both Ariquipa and the Colca Canyon. For more time in the canyon and a cultural experience with a villager, please see the 3-day Colca Canyon Cultural Tour.
