WHY THIS TRIP
Peru’s Apurimac River is one of the top ten rafting rivers in the world and the best short rafting trip in Peru, with incredible rapids, awesome scenery, pristine beaches and rare wildlife.
Rio Apurimac Rafting in the Apurimac canyon is a total wilderness adventure through the impressive 3,000-meter deep Granite Canyon, including thrilling Class IV rapids, pristine sandy beaches for camping, spectacular sun-bleached rock formations and rare wildlife, including otters, puma and the ultra-elusive Andean bear. It is an adventure lover’s dream come true, and Amazonas Explorer is Peru’s best and most professional rafting company.
From the ancient Inca capital of Cusco you enjoy a spectacular bus journey to the start of this river deep in the heart of an impressive 3,000-meter deep canyon. From here all supplies are taken for four days of wilderness rafting. No previous rafting experience is necessary as full safety instruction and safety talk is given so even the most novice crews are expertly trained to meet the challenges and thrills of this non-stop adrenaline-pumping roller coaster ride of a life time.
