Price available from $500US per person. Contact Us

Under the night sky of the southern hemisphere, our staff prepares all meals and sets up the campfire. Most of the rapids are III+ and IV rapids, but also a few IV+ and some class V. At one point, we reach a narrow canyon with an impassable rapid. Here we have to do a 300m portage. Among the wildlife in this remote and isolated canyon, we find river otters, bobcat, foxes, condors, torrent ducks and cormorants.

Apurimac White Water Rafting Cusco

Day 1. To the River Apurimac

We meet at 9:00 am. We leave and drive 4 hours through
the Andes to the put-in at Huallpachaca bridge, 2000m high in altitude. It will
take us a couple hours to prepare all the equipment: rafts, cargo raft, coolers, and provide your helmets, lifejackets, wet suits etc. After lunch we will give you a safety talk. We will put emphasis on training all the participants, in how to get back into the raft, flipping the raft, and swimming a rapid.
You will be floating as a training day for 2 or 3 hours, running class II and III rapids. We camp in a narrow gorge with spectacular canyon walls.
