Day 1 Urubamba River

Early in the morning we will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco and drive for one hour south through the Andes to the town of Urcos, the starting point of our adventure. Here you will receive your safety briefing and equipment as well as a brief practice in the flat parts of the river before some class II and III rapids over the next three hours. Arrive to the village of San Salvador and enjoy our picnic lunch on the riverside and after a well-deserved rest, we will drive back to Urcos Lake (1.5 hour drive) to set up our camp and spend the night under the Andean sky scattered by restless stars.

Day 2 Class IV Rapids. Return to Cusco

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
After breakfast, we will drive for 45 minutes to the starting point of our second day adventure. Here we have the opportunity to raft some fantastic and challenging class IV rapids, a fast and wild ride of 12 kms. We will then enjoy our picnic lunch on the riverside and then transfer back to Cusco.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
