From the dry, deciduous forest in the North around the cities of Chiclayo and Jaen, to the lower slopes of the Andres and into the Amazon region: we will explore the habitats around Huaraz, a beautiful town nestled in the valley between the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Negra. We will see amazing Matucanas in flower, high elevation Oroyas, spectacular Neoraimondias and the most incredible bromeliad Puya raimondii growing at 4400 meters, with its inflorescence of over 20 feet! along with beautiful Tillandsias and Vrieseas.
At the end of the tour, we will cross the Andes once again heading towards the Sacred Valley of the Incas to finish our voyage visiting Machu Picchu.
