At 9 am a private vehicle will take us to the pueblo of Ubinas,
located approximately 70 km ( 45 miles ) from Arequipa. On the way to
Ubinas we will stop to the Laguna de Salinas, famous for its
flamingos, birdlife and stunning landscape. Here at the water's edge
we will eat a boxed lunch, surrounded by an impressive view of three
volcanoes: Ubinas, Misti and Huaynputina. With more than twelve
registered eruptions since the Spanish conquest, the Ubinas Volcano is
considered the most active volcano in Peru, (all the eruptions were of
small magnitude so don't worry - the trip will be memorable but safe).
At 3 pm we will arrive to Ubinas town(population 3,000 and
located 6 km/3.5 miles from the Ubinas volcano). You will have the
afternoon free to explore this typical Peruvian small
town. We will spend the first night here - dinner and hotel
accommodations are included.
Day 2: After breakfast (included) we will take a car to the Ubinas volcano to
an altitude of 4800 mts/15600 ft. From here we will walk two hours to
reach the crater. From the summit , the descend into the big crater is
easy , but not into the small one which has vertical walls. At 1:00 PM
we will return to Ubinas town where we'll have lunch. In case the
crater wasn't enough, we will visit the relax in the hot springs in
the town of Huarina and then we will return to Arequipa by 8 pm.
