Arequipa

The ‘white city’ of Arequipa is more than a stopover en-route to Colca Canyon, it’s an architectural gem and culinary centre with a dramatic backdrop of volcanoes and plenty to explore.

Colca Canyon

The magnificent Colca Canyon, second deepest in the world, is a stunning sight; a great place to view condors, go hiking and biking, see pre-Inca sites and visit rural villages.

Northern Peru

The northern coast of Peru – Chiclayo, Trujillo and the stretch of coast in-between – is an area that is very rich in culture, from ancient mud brick pyramids, the golden splendour of the Royal Tombs of Sipán to the massive archaeological site of Chan Chán.
