Arequipa Tours Colca Canyon 4d/3n Arequipa is Peru’s second-largest city and was founded in 1540. The site was chosen for its proximity to the coast, enabling settlers to trade the products of Cusco and the mines of Potosi (Bolivia) with Lima. The local cultivation of wheat, corn, and grapes all contributed to the region’s economic growth. The city of Arequipa Peru is surrounded by 3 volcanoes; El Misti volcano, still active, at 5822 m, the higher and extinct Chachani Volcano at 6075 m and Pichu Pichu Volcano at 5571 m. The Incas highly respected these volcanoes, since the melt water from their snow-capped peaks form the headwaters of the mighty Amazon River, thousands of kilometers away. The Arequipa volcano in Colca Canyon is reportedly the second deepest in the world (after Cotahuasi), thought to be twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in the USA. Unlike most of the Grand Canyon, portions of the Colca canyon are habitable, with pre-Colombian terraced fields still supporting agriculture and human life. Located 148 km northeast of Arequipa – about 4 hour drive. To follow this circuit, travelers must head for the northwestern part of Arequipa to Yura until reaching the cove known as “Mirador de los Cóndores” (natural viewpoint). From there, it is possible to make out the snow-capped summits of Ampato and Sabancaya. Embark on an unforgettable 4-day, 3-night adventure in the captivating region of Arequipa. Discover the awe-inspiring beauty of the Colca Canyon, one of the deepest canyons in the world. Witness the majestic flight of the Andean Condors, an awe-inspiring spectacle that will leave you in awe. Explore the rich cultural heritage of Arequipa, a city surrounded by breathtaking landscapes and remarkable history. This journey promises exhilarating experiences, breathtaking vistas, and cherished memories that will last a lifetime. Join us on this extraordinary expedition to Arequipa, Colca Canyon, and the realm of the magnificent Andean Condors.
