Luxury travel to Arequipa

The 'White City', Beautiful Colonial Architecture

Nicknamed "The White City" because of its use of white volcanic rock throughout the area, this city is not only surrounded by peaceful Andes Mountain views, but historic sites as well.
One of the highlights of any visit are the visit to the colourful Santa Catalina Convent. Founded in the 15th century, this is almost a city within a city, it's narrow cobblestone pathways leading through bright blue and red painted passageways and buildings.

The city is a real pleasure to explore and our guides will help the history come alive for you. Arequipa was recently declared a UNESCO world heritage site and visitors can enjoy views of their famous snow capped volcano from anywhere in the city.

When to go

The driest months are from May to October, though it's still fine to visit throughout the year. Arequipa is referred to as the city of eternal spring with over 300 days of sunshine per year.

  • Explore the colonial centre of the city

Nancy was a wonderful, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and a terrific companion for our day in Arequipa. She also made sure we did everything that was promised to see on our itinerary and we really appreciated that. Her personality, expertise, and guidance was excellent for our entire visit - including arrival at the airport, the day tour, and help with the departure.
