About the activity:

We leave Arequipa between 2:30-3:00am, will drive for 3 hours northwest behind the Chachani to Chivay, capital of the Colca Canyon. Where we will have breakfast.
We continue driving for 2 hours at the most famous spot in the Colca Canyon “La Cruz del Condor”. This is where we see the depth of the canyon and the flight of the Condor. The area has beautiful typical villages like Yanque and Maca, colonial churches, friendly people with dresses and hats with typical sewing, and hundreds of pre-Inca terraces that are still in use with Andean crops such as corn, quinoa and amaranth.
Already in Chivay at noon there is an optional visit to the hot springs of La Calera, with pools that have a water temperature of 40°C/104°F. Once in Chivay we will have a traditional lunch and after lunch we will travel to back to Arequipa.
We stop on the way, on the highest step: the viewpoint of the volcanoes and snow-capped mountains in Patapampa (4,800m). Later we will see wild vicunas, alpacas and llamas in the national reserve of Pampa Cañahuas and some birds like flamingos, ibis, Andean geese, ducks and eagles Andean Quechua called “Kara Kara”. Finally we arrive at the city of Arequipa at the end of the afternoon, at approximately 5:00pm.
