Apurimac Tours - Tours in Apurimac

Rafting down the Apurimac River
04 days / 03 nights


Apart from world class rapids the Apurimac boasts 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 dreams come true.

Rafting in the Apurimac River Vilcanota Knot


Day 01 : Cusco / Apurimac


We pick you up at your hotel in Cusco for the spectacular drive to the Apurimac canyon, hopefully glimpsing on route the snow-capped Vilcanota mountain range before descending into the canyon to our starting point on the banks of the Apurimac. Here we inflate our specialized rafts, load up with provisions 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.

Day 02 / Day 03 : Apurimac River

For the next three days we challenge the rapids of the mighty Apurimac. "Apu - rimac", in Quechua, signifies "The Great Speaker" - Inca nobility and priests would often "consult" the river on route to the city of Cusco. The rapids are pretty much non-stop and at times the huge boulders that block our way force us to the bank for further scouting. At several points we have to portage unrunnable falls. At night we camp on beautiful sandy beaches and explore the amazing rock formations. Andean foxes, otters and pumas have all been sighted on the banks of the river. In between the harder rapids there is plenty of time to take in the awesome scenery and marvel at the near sheer sided gorge down which we are travelling.

Day 04 : Apurimac / Cusco

Finally we reach a break in the canyon walls and from here it is a short bus journey back to Cusco, passing on route the towering snow capped Salcantay mountain. On arrival in Cusco we drop you off at your hotel for a well earned hotel bed, hot shower and perhaps you will join us later to explore the delights of Cusco's nightlife and celebrate your successful descent of through the mighty Apurimac canyon.
