Rafting in Apurimac River 3 days

The 3-day Apurimac River Expedition is an exciting combination of class III-V rapids, and the stunning landscapes of the Apurimac Canyon. The river runs in the high Andes between Cusco and Arequipa. During this trip we run multiple Class V rapids and spend two nights sleeping along the river under the stars. We have designed

a new adventure for the rafting fans in the Apurimac whitewaters, discovering the canyon of the Apurimac, one of the most amazing places in Peru.

Apurimac River Rafting itinerary:

Our private transport will pick you up at your hotel. We will arrive to 4,000 (masl.) then we will descend to 2,200m where it is the starting point of the river expedition. And then we will have our safety briefing and the practice on the river, each passenger will have turns swimming in some moderates rapids so we will practice grabbing the safety kayaks and also securing rescue lines. After that we will have 2 hours on the water and then we will pass by the rapids of Class 2, 3, & 4, after that we will rest around the fire to enjoy the night.

Today is the longest day on the river and there will be passing by the rapids of Class 2, 3, 4 & 5.
