For those who like their adventure with a capital A, this one day Peru raft trip has it all. Superb class 3 to 4 rapids on a clean, empty river. A spot of canyoning. A delicious lunch on a beach. And a scenic drive in and out through the Andes.
We are one of the very few companies to hold the Dircetur Adventure Licence to operate rafting. All guides and safety kayakers hold a Swift Water Rescue Level 4 certificate and First Aid certificate as well as being certified as rafting guides by the Peruvian Rafting Association.
This is a unique chance to paddle a 1-day section of the mighty Rio Apurimac, through a 3000m deep canyon on the true source of the Rio Amazon. This is a full day of adventure and you will be rewarded with spectacular views, amazing class 3 -4 whitewater, pristine beaches and great memories.
We pick you up early from Cusco for the spectacular drive to the Apurimac canyon, hopefully glimpsing on route the snow-capped Vilcanota mountain range and Salcantay Massif before descending an incredible road into the canyon to our starting point on the banks of the Apurimac. Here we inflate our rafts, and, following a full safety talk and instruction in the art of white water rafting, we head off into the canyon in search of adventure.
We travel through the most spectacular canyon with world-class rapids, interspersed with gentle floats, elusive wildlife and amazing scenery. We stop to explore side canyons, have lunch on a deserted beach before enjoying more fun rapids to our take out at Puente Huallpacachaca where we celebrate our day with cold drinks, before jumping in the vehicles for the journey back to your hotel, having had a genuine “mini-expedition” on the Rio Apurimac.
