A day of rafting will teach you some basic techniques, show you some nice scenery near Cusco, and give you a wet, thrilling ride.
Day 01: Cusco - Rio Urubamba- Cusco.
Duration: 09.00am – 05.00pm
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 ½ 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. 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
