We recommend spending at least a day before beginning any activity in Huaraz. Altitude sickness can be very severe so we recommend spending a day in the city to acclimatize and then starting off with the Pastoruri Glacier tour. On this tour, we pass by pre-historic fauna landscapes as we make our way up the the trailhead and if you’re lucky will get to see the majestic Andean condor. Weather can be quite unpredictable so we recommend dressing in layers and bringing a rain jacket/poncho just in case it decides to pour! 

We depart earlier than any other tour company to witness a late sunrise over the beautiful glacial lake and glacier. You’ll have the entire area to yourself and get to enjoy a light breakfast at the trailhead. Book your tour below!
