Cusco: Rafting on Rio Apurimac

Rafting on Rio Apurimac

Take a two-day rafting adventure along the awesomely beautiful course of the Rio Apurimac, which flows through a deep canyon a short distance north from Cusco.

With top-of-the-range equipment, good food and expert guides, this overnight trip, typically at altitudes of 3,400m +, takes on the thrills and spills of this dramatic river. Ride white water rapids and relax as you gently float along the calmer stretches of the Rio Apurimac, as it meanders through the breathtaking valleys of the Andes towards the Amazon.

Nights are spent under canvas, camping on the sandy beaches alongside the river - remote and beautiful - there is nothing to disturb the peace and tranquillity but the sound of the river and the stars overhead.

No previous rafting experience is necessary.

If you have more, or less, time there are longer-duration rafting adventures and white-water rafting day-trips available close to Cusco for people of all levels of experience.  Please contact us for details.
