The Apurímac Canyon, one of the deepest in South America, has the river called Apurímac “God who speaks”, the section where this rafting activity is carried out is one of the most fascinating and exciting since it has level II rapids up to level V. There are even areas where there are level VI rapids, of course, according to regulations, it is not possible to run them. Cheer up for this extreme adventure and feel the adrenaline of this great trip. We will spend nights camping with campfires on the riverbank.


Our guides will come to meet you the night before at your hotel to give you the corresponding explanations regarding the tour.


08:30 AM we will go to your hotel to start this great adventure. We will start our trip towards the Huallpachaca bridge, located southeast of Cusco, approximately 4 hours away. We will arrive at the starting point at lunchtime. After enjoying a delicious lunch, our guides will proceed to distribute all the safety equipment such as Helmet, life jackets, oars, jackets then they will give us a brief safety talk on how to use the equipment and how to row while being inside the river,  in addition to a rescue demonstration in the water. Next, we will proceed to paddle for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes until we reach our camp located on the riverbank.


After enjoying a delicious breakfast prepared by our guides, we will set up the entire camp, pack up and continue with this magnificent adventure. This day will be full of adrenaline as we will run class III and class IV rapids. Keep in mind that in this section we will find class VI portages which we will stop and walkthrough. We will arrive at a point where we will enjoy our lunch and then we will continue sailing, we will arrive at our camp at approximately 5:00 pm. It is also located on the river bank. We will set up camp and after dinner, we can make a campfire and enjoy the sound of the river and the jokes of our guides.


One more day of adventure. After breakfast, we will pick up our camp and continue paddling for about 4 more hours. On this day we will run class III, IV, and V rapids. The final point of our route inside the river is the Cunyac Bridge, where we will pack all our equipment, have lunch and continue our trip back to the city of Cusco.

Excellent - keep it going The more that is said about this team is definitely less. Jhon and I had been in touch for the last six months to draw this trip and since then to now when it is in conceptualisation it has been top notch professional with a touch of personal with them checking on my well-being etc. Abel came in once I arrived at Lima and since then has been my support. Guys this is a tour operator must to be considered. Infact I have met so many in Cusco who asked me of my trip details and I have no hesitations in recommending them. Bravo

Ótimo passeio! Fizemos o passeio para Machu Picchu e tudo foi incrível, nós buscaram no horário combinado no hotel, o carro e motorista eram ótimos. Eles cuidaram de reservar as passagens de trem e ônibus e os ingressos para vista à Machu Picchu e tudo saiu perfeito. O guia da vista também foi excelente, muito atencioso e solicitou, além de ótimo fotografo. Tudo foi impecável!

Merveilleux, foncez ! Que dire à part un grand merci. Nous avons contacté l’agence la veille, ils nous ont répondu directement en nous proposant des expéditions sur mesure selon nos envies et nos disponibilités (2 jours d’expéditions : 1. Vallées sacrés des incas et 2. Machu Picchu). Abel s’est rendu disponible pour nous expliquer tous les détails avant le départ et même pendant les expéditions. Nous avons passé deux jours incroyable, tout était planifié, nous n’avions plus qu’à visiter et s’émerveiller. Le tout pour un prix raisonnable ! Nous recommandons ! (Francais 22 & 26 ans)
