Tour itinerary

We will leave very early, before sunrise, to be able to observe the huge fumaroles of the main geothermal field.

We will take advantage of the tranquility of the place to have breakfast and contemplate this surreal landscape. Our guide will explain how geothermal phenomena are formed and give you more information about endemic fauna and flora.

Then we will walk through the mud geysers. This little known site offers a fantastic landscape where you can feel the Patta Hoiri (Mother Earth in Kunza) shaking.

We will follow the few visited white geysers to enjoy a relaxing bath in the hot pools*. An almost secret place, where only adventurers like you go!
