Rafting in the Urubamba River 1Day
Cusco – Machu Piccchu
A day of Rafting will teach you some basic techniques, show you some nice scenery near Cusco, and give you a wet, thrilling ride.
At 9:00 AM we leave for the Urubamba River in the Sacred Valley of the Incas (north of Cusco), where our guide will give us an introductory chat on safety and equipment for our trip running the Urubamba. We will raft for around 2 hours in Class II,III.IV+ and V rapids, depending on which route we select.
We could be on Huambutio
Class II, Ollantaytambo
Class III (We run it from May to December), Quiquijana
IV and V (Dec to May). For the last one, which is the hardest,
we always take a safety kayak with us, so it means one extra guide for the safety of our clients.
After lunch we return to Cusco, arriving at around 5:00 PM.
The rainy season is a really good time to go Rafting because the river gets faster and the waves and other hydraulics are larger. The rainy season lasts from December to April
