    Day 1
    VISIT OF SALINAS IN AREQUIPA
    • 7:00 am. Departure from your hotel to the Salinas lagoon at 4,300 meters above sea level between the Misti, Ubinas and Pichupichu volcanoes, within the Aguada Blanca and Salinas National Reserve, a protected area.
    • Throughout the year we can see vicuñas (one of the species of South American camelids) and sometimes llamas and alpacas. We can also observe the vizcacha (rabbit of the Andes), and if we have a bit of luck, we can also see some Andean foxes. We can also see a plant that only grows more than 4,000 meters above sea level called Yareta (azorella compacta).
    • Here we can see three different species of flamingos (this is not seen anywhere else in the world!):
    • >> Phoenicopteras chilensis (Chilean flamenco).
    • >> Andean Phoenicoparras (large Andean parihuana).
    • >> Phoenicoparras jamesi (Andean parihuana girl).
    • If there is not much water we can even cross the lagoon in our 4x4.
    • After visiting this protected area of the reserve we will return to Arequipa, being able to take pictures during all the tour of beautiful landscapes as well as the Misti volcano.
