A 2 day/1 night whitewater rafting trip on the Urubamba River, the sacred river of the Incas. Experience Class II-IV rapids on this trip that includes one overnight of camping and great food after your day's adrenaline-filled adventure on this great river.
Day 1 : Urubamba River Day 2 : Class IV Rapids. Return to Cusco
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.
This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
