HIKING,TOURS & TRIPS
B&B HIKING HOTEL'THE OFFICE' Arequipa Peru
At the beginning of the start of our B&B we find giving information very important, both concerning the B&B as well as hikes we organize. Since the beginning of 2023 we therefore also work together with WAIKY ADVENTOURS ( https://waikyadventours.com ) in Arequipa, they are specialized in trips/hike of our 3 volcanoes in Arequipa. Always with an experienced guide, for 1 or 2 days. All these hikes I have had the pleasure to experience myself and if desired I go with my guests.
If you would like more information of climbing the Miste, Chachani and the Pichu-Pichu through WAIKY ADVENTOURS I have all the documents digitally that i can send you. Below we will describe one of WAIKY ADVENTOURS' hikes.
We organize various day or multi-day trips for our B&B customers. Always work according to your wishes. We offer very special Hiking, from one hour to multi-day. For example, a hike of 25 kilometers from Mirador de Los Vulcanes (5 km high) to Yanque. A tour that few people will know or have experienced. Below are short descriptions of some day trips /hiking /horse riding and quad biking in the area of the Colca Canyon, and Arequipa. We also organize tours in the city of Arequipa.
