About the Challenge

Anyone looking for a fun day of alternative adventure should try this great white-water rafting trip, which takes you down a beautiful section of the Urubamba. Rafting is a fun sport, suitable for all ages – no experience necessary!

The Urubamba River rises in the Andes and flows through the heartland of the former Inca Empire. The section we run is usually the Class III-IV Chuquicahuana section located above Cuzco, where a gentle start allows us to practise our technique before the river takes us through a beautiful canyon with views of the surrounding peaks and fun, adrenaline-pumping rapids. Rafting is a participatory team event, so your paddle is not just for decoration! Beware: you will get wet!

This day-trip takes place on Day 8 of your main trekking itinerary (in place of the free day in Cuzco); you will get back to the hotel mid-to-late afternoon.

Requires a minimum of 4 people to run. Please contact us for more details.



We are currently confirming new dates and routes for this challenge and these will be updated as soon as available.  Please continue to check our website.
