Peru - Arequipa & Canyon Country (Chapter)
This is the Arequipa & Canyon Country chapter from Lonely Planet’s Peru guidebook.
Arequipa province is Peru’s big combo ticket. Authentic historical immersion and white-knuckle adventure inhabit the same space here. Imagine one of South America’s finest colonial cities just a short distance from the world’s two deepest canyons and you’ll get a hint of the dramatic contrasts.
