Arequipa - Rio Chili - Arequipa
We will pick you up today at your hotel and head to Rio Chile. On the way we will stop at our office where our guides and staff will be waiting to equip you (we recommend that you take a small backpack with you to leave your things while you enjoy the activity).
Once we arrive at the area known as the Chapi Virgin Cave in Charcani we will give you all the safety information regarding our descent of the river before we launch.
You will then only have to take advantage of the 6km descent of the rio Chile in the company of the group and your instructor guide.
At the end of our activity you will have time to change and have a snack before returning to Arequipa.
End of our services at the return to the white city.

The climate varies greatly according to the regions travelled through. From April to November, the sky is clear, although light rains are always possible. In altitude, it is pleasant during the day and cold at night. So bring warm clothes, even if you can walk around in a T-shirt during the day. Beware of the sun, which is strong at high altitudes, and bring a hat, sun cream and sunglasses.
No visa is required for stays of less than 90 days. You must travel with a passport that is still valid for 6 months after your stay.
When visiting high altitude areas, adverse effects such as headaches, nausea, insomnia and fatigue affect some people. However, the trip is designed to allow our body to adapt gradually (increase in red blood cells).
All major cities have modern private clinics with care comparable to what we have in Europe. However, you have to pay on the spot and then ask for reimbursement from your health insurance company.
We advise you to check whether your insurance covers medical costs in the countries you visit and if not, to seek reimbursement. Repatriation insurance is compulsory.
Currency / Credit Cards
Dollars and euros are accepted in the shops of the big cities. There are exchange houses everywhere. However, it is better not to carry large sums of money with you.
Credit cards are accepted in all ATMs (visa, mastercard, diners, american express). The commission of the bancomat is between 5 and 10usd.
In the service sector, it is normal to leave a tip when you are happy with the service. Between 5 and 10% of the value of the service is usual.
Whenever you travel, remember to keep fit. Even for “Discovery” trips, by preparing yourself physically you will adapt more easily to the altitude and enjoy your discoveries.
For trekking trips, develop your endurance by running or practicing your endurance several times a week.
