Ideal for those in Cusco or the Sacred Valley
Combine with a visit to Pisac artisan market
This can be done in a raft with a guide in charge of your boat, or by inflatable canoes, where you paddle your own boats? If you are confident in the water and like a bit of a challenge, this is ideal. No previous experience required.
The Pinipampa section of the river is clean, tranquil and incredibly beautiful. It lies just forty-five minutes outside Cusco and one hour from the Sacred Valley. The Class I-II rapids are perfect for beginners.
On arrival, we inflate the one and two person canoes, while you don your wetsuits and life-jackets. Your guide will give you a full safety brief and instruction in the art of canoeing.
The river starts gently with time to practice your technique, and then builds up with a few fun rapids through a beautiful canyon where you may see the famous torrent ducks. After a final flat section where you can play some games, you reach the take out point where your dry clothes and a tasty picnic lunch will be waiting.
A short drive takes you to Pisac. This beautiful town is famous for its daily craft market, selling everything from colourful textiles to hand-made bags. You will have time to fully explore the market and winding streets, before continuing to your hotel for the night.
Please note the visit to Pisac is optional. If the group wishes to return directly to Cusco that is fine.
