Itinerary We will pick you up at your hotel in Arequipa between 6:00 and 6:30 a.m. to start the trip to the Salinas Lagoon, located on the border of the Salinas and Aguada Blanca National Reserve. During the trip we will stop in Chiguata, a typical village of the area, for a continental breakfast consisting of juice, mate or coffee, cereal and toast. We will go into nature to discover the flora and fauna of the Arequipa region surrounding the Salinas Lagoon. We will only have to look up to discover that we are at the foot of the Misti volcano. Did you know that it is one of the 10 active volcanoes in the area? During the trip we will see an Andean forest formed by small trees and bushes, called queñuales in this area! Finally we will arrive at the Salinas Lagoon. If it is dry, it will welcome us with a snow-white color. And if there is water, we can approach the shore to see the large amount of salt that accumulates. Did you know that it is the only lagoon where you can see three types of flamingos? In addition, alpacas and llamas will accompany us during our walk around the lagoon. We will be able to explore the surroundings of the lagoon and the area of the Lojen volcano, as well as some thermal baths. After the hike, we will leave you free time for lunch and return to Arequipa. We will drop you off at your respective hotels around 4:30 pm.
