TOUR # 5
LA BUFA CANYON
This all-day tour will take you through immense and wild canyons and five lookout points where you will be able to spend 10 or 15 minutes to enjoy the view and take photographs.
The tour begins with a drive south on the Gran Vision Highway past Arareko Lake through beautiful rolling pine covered hills and mountain sides. You will be able to admire a large variety of rock formations along the way.
The first lookout point is at Basihuare Canyon, from here the road will wind round and round untill you get to the second Canyon: Humira. Humira is the upper Canyon and headwater of the Urique River. Our third stop is at the Urique River which is one of the rivers that runs through one of the deepest Canyons: Urique. The Urique Canyon actually begins a short distance downstream from this lookout point.
A few miles further we leave the Gran Vision Highway into a dirt road which will take us to the most important stop at the rim of the La Bufa Canyon. Here you will spend 1-1/2 hours in which time you will have time to have lunch and to enjoy the monumental sight of this wonderful canyon which is a few thousand feet deep. You will see many multicolored cliffs and side canyons.
On the way back there will be one more stop at the Mirador de Napuche lookout point.
This tour is offered to a minimum of 6 to 7 people.
