Itinerary

Day 1

AREQUIPA – CHIVAY – LA CALERA

We will begin with an early morning pick-up (07:30 am approx.) from your hotel in Arequipa to begin the drive Northward to Chivay. We will be stopping along the way, to appreciate the stunning views as we hear explanations from our guide about the local flora and fauna and the typical lifestyle of the rural population of the area. We will see the Chachani Glacier and go into a National Reserve area known as Salina y Aguada Blanca, at this point we will be able to see Vicuñas (wild american cammels). We will eventually arrive to Chivay around mid-day, for lunch and transfer to your hotel. During the afternoon we will have a chance to take a dip in the famous, medicinal, Calera Hot Springs (38°C) for a while.
