“We had the oportunity to had unbelievable views of the glacier, and we had the best experience at the minitrekkig tour on the ice, with the guides and others turist, playing with snowballs and drink whisky with ice of the glacier. The best thing for me, was the chances of getting amazing photos, and also the guides took us to special places where they took the best photos of us.”

We will pick you up from your hotel in the morning, to start a very special tour: The Sillar Route. We will take the Arequipa / La Joya route until we reach the Añashuayco quarries and the Quebrada de Culebrillas, and we will walk through this impressive gorge to discover the process used by the ancestors, and that are maintained until today, to take advantage of the volcanic lava which then become sillar blocks. This material has been used for the constructions of the city of Arequipa, declared by UNESCO as World Heritage City. At the end of the tour, we will return to the hotel in the city of Arequipa.
