For those who like their adventure with a capital A, this one day Peru raft trip has it all. Superb rapids on a clean, empty river. A spot of canyoning. A delicious lunch on a beach. And a scenic drive in and out through the Andes.
This trip covers the last day of our longer 2 day Apurimac Black Canyon rafting expedition and is suitable for 13-year-olds upwards. If you need an easier day of rafting, try our one day Raft in Cusco trip.
We pick you up early from Cusco for the spectacular drive to the Apurimac canyon, hopefully glimpsing on route the snow-capped Vilcanota mountain range and Salcantay Massif before descending an incredible road into the canyon and so to our starting point on the banks of the Apurimac. Here we inflate our specialised rafts, and, following a full safety talk and instruction in the art of white water rafting, we head off into the canyon in search of adventure.
We travel through the most spectacular canyon with world-class rapids, interspersed with gentle floats, elusive wildlife and amazing scenery. We stop to explore side canyons, have lunch on a deserted beach before enjoying more fun rapids to our take out at Puente Huallpacachaca where we celebrate our day with cold drinks, before jumping in the vehicles for the journey back to your hotel, having had a genuine “mini expedition” on the Rio Apurimac.
