Itinerary We will pick you up at your hotel in Arequipa at 3:15 a.m. and, after a three-hour bus ride through southern Peru, we will reach the village of Chivay, at more than 3,000 meters above sea level, where we will stop for a delicious breakfast of bread with butter and jam, juice and coffee or tea. At more than 3000 meters above sea level we will stop for a succulent breakfast consisting of bread with butter and jam, juice and coffee or tea. Delicious! With our batteries recharged, we will head towards the Cruz del Condor viewpoint. From here you will be able to admire the Colca Canyon in all its splendor. Did you know that it is one of the deepest canyons in the world? In addition, we will see the occasional condor, as this area is perfect for the flight of this species of bird. We will leave the viewpoint and continue the route visiting other villages and viewpoints of the Colca Canyon as Wayrapunko or Antahuillque. Around 11:30 a.m. we will head to the thermal baths of Chacapi, where you will spend an hour enjoying its natural pools. After this dip, we will return to Chivay, where you will have free time to have lunch on your own. Finally, we will meet again and head for Puno, our final destination. During the six-hour drive, we will make stops to stretch our legs at the Patapampa viewpoint, from where you will be able to admire the majesty of the Ampato and Sabancaya volcanoes. We will also stop at the Salinas Reserve and Lagunillas, to see if we are lucky enough to get a close look at some of the herds of camelids or flocks of wild birds that inhabit these areas. We will finish the excursion at the Puno Terminal at approximately 7:30 pm.
