ITINERARY: Horse Riding around Arequipa


Start at 8am or 1pm. We pick you up from your hotel and drive for a half hour to get to the Arequipa countryside of Sabandía (2400m), where the horse porter waits for us with the saddled horses and all the necessary equipment. After a brief instruction on handling and treatment of our Peruvian Step or gentle horses, we begin our horse ride. We go through pleasant landscapes, crossing little rivers and we see farmers working in the fields. We also appreciate the amazing cultivated fields on the terraces or «andenerías» of Incan time.

After one hour we arrive at Yumina Lookout to have a great view of Arequipa City. Then, we descend towards a flat area where we can gallop, if you like. Our last section is through a small canyon alongside the river. We also have the opportunity to admire the spectacular volcanoes that surround Arequipa: The Misti, Chachani and Pichupicchu.

The horse riding takes three hours with an hour round trip transfer.
