Get your walking boots on and get ready for a hike through the stunning Arequipa countryside. We'll explore the trails surrounding the Misti Volcano, admire the Laguna de Salinas and make friends with llamas and alpacas!
Laguna de Salinas Day Trip
After picking you up from your accommodation in Arequipa between 6 and 6:30 am, we'll start our journey towards the Laguna de Salinas, or Lake Salinas as it is also known in English, located on the edge of the Salinas & Aguada Blanca Natural Reserve.
On the way we'll stop in Chiguata, a typical village in the area, to have a continental breakfast consisting of juice, mate or coffee, cereals and toast.
We'll delve into the spectacular natural setting and discover the incredible plants and wildlife characteristic of the region of Arequipa.
You'll only have to look up to see that we're just behind the majestic Misti Volcano. Did you know that this is one of the region's ten active volcanoes? During our tour, we'll see an Andean forest formed by small trees and bushes, in this area they call them queñuales!
When we reach Laguna de Salinas, we'll discover its changing landscapes: if the lake is dry it will be as white as snow. If there is water, we'll see the large amount of salt that collects around. What's more, as we admire the views, we'll be accompanied by the local alpacas and llamas that live here. Did you know you can see 3 types of flamingos?
We'll be able to explore the vicinity of the lagoon and the area of the Lojen volcano, as well as some thermal baths. After the walk, we'll leave you free for lunch and then return to Arequipa.
The tour will end at your hotel at around 4.30 pm.
