The Apurimac
is a World Class
Whitewater Rafting River

This exciting  whitewater rafting  expedition  is rated  among the best of world class rivers. We  start our  trip  from Cusco driving for 4 hours across the Andes down to the Apurimac River (Speaker of the Gods in Quechua). This river is also the most direct source of the Amazon making it the longest river in the world. We put-in at 2,000 mts. It will take us about two hours to prepare all the equipment using only state of the art self bailing rafts and catarafts. We´ll have lunch and raft down to our first camp. All the meals are prepared by our staff on a campfire under the night sky of the Southern Hemisphere.

At one point we arrive to a narrow canyon with an impossible rapid  where we have to do a portage for about 300 mts. Most of the time we will be rafting class III+ and IV rapids, but we also have a few class IV + and V rapids. Among the wildlife in this remote and isolated canyon we could find river otters, bob cats, foxes, torrent ducks, cormorants etc.
