The Apurimac River is considered one of the best rivers in the world to whitewater raft on. Our professional guides, top-of-the-line equipment, knowledge of the river and experience in providing Apurimac Whitewater River rafting tours all contribute to add an unforgettable experience to your trip to Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
There will be a briefing in your hotel the night before your rafting adventure in the Apurimac River. The briefing will include: reviewing the detailed itinerary of the tour, the navigation system, safety procedures and requirements, meals, equipment and camping.
At 9:00 AM you will be greeted in your hotel lobby. We’ll then drive 5 hours SE of Cusco (over the Andes) to the Huallpachaca Bridge (2,000m). After lunch in the canyon our guide will speak about safety instructions regarding the Apurimac Whitewater Rafting Trip, demonstrate the use of equipment and have a basic Rescue Course for this kind of whitewater river rafting tour.
We’ll then raft for 1 hour in Class II and III rapids. Before dark we will set up tents and camp on one of the beautiful beaches of the Apurimac River. Dinner and rest next to a nice campfire before retiring.
