Difficulty: Moderate

Day 1

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.
