Went on a day tour from Arequipa. Saw hundreds of vicuna in the wild. One of the highlights of our Peru vacation.

Drove through the reserve on the way from Arequipa to the Colca Canyon. The views of the mountains, valleys, flora and fauna were amazing. Special treat was seeing lots of llamas, alpacas, and vicunas quite close to the road and a small herd of guanaco...More

We decided we wanted to visit the Laguna de Salinas (salt lake) not far from Arequipa. It is famous for wildlife viewing -- especially flamingos. We hired a private, local tour company. They advertised private transportation, a guide and a "box lunch." What they didn't...More

We drove through on our way from Puno to Arequipa. This is a naturally beautiful area with many vicunas and alpacas. Its very secluded and has great beauty with views of volcanos and mountains.

It's of the beaten track, so it's a bit more expensive! Take a tour/car to this lake, it's beautiful! A lot of llama's en alpaca's, no tourist and a nice view. It's 2 hour drive, and you can mountainbike on the way down (if you...More
