Tour Details

Take a trip back in time on this Arica tour to see what life was like in ancient Arica and the Parinacota region. An expert guide will escort you and your closest companions to all the cultural and natural highlights this captivating area has to offer.

Start your private Arica tour with a scenic drive inland toward Lluta Valley, passing large estates and rich farmlands along the way. Notice the huge historic geoglyphs scratched into the slopes centuries ago by indigenous people. Discover Poconchile, a pre-Inca city with a charming 17th-century Adobe church built by Spanish conquerors. Ride past spectacular views and the 20-foot Candelabro cacti of Quebrada de Cardones gorge.

Take a tip from the Aymara people by pausing at a rustic inn to sip on cocoa leaf tea as a precaution against altitude sickness. Continue to Putre, a 17th-century Aymaran village nestled in snow-capped mountains. Walk along its ancient paths as you stop to enjoy a box lunch. From there, you'll head to one of the highest lakes in the world, Chungara Lake. Once there, admire the breathtaking mirror images of the mountains in the water. Make your way through the gorgeous landscape of Lauca National Park to the abandoned village of Parinacota to see carefully restored houses and a small 17th-century colonial church. Afterward, you'll begin your journey back to the coast.

Your Arica cultural tour is a full day experience and includes mineral water. During this tour, you will be gradually exposed to high altitudes (maximum 14,000 feet), which are not suitable for those with heart conditions or high blood pressure.
